GROW

 

“And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord,

you must continue to follow him.

Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him.

Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught,

and you will overflow with thankfulness.”

Col 2:6-7

Parenting Courses

Great Kids need great parents and with the right tools anyone can be a great parent! If you are looking for practical strategies, inspiration, encouragement and insight then we recommend a Toolbox Parenting Group. Check out Tauranga venues and dates at the Parenting Place website.

1. Read your new Bible! This isn’t some ancient book that has no relevance to you today. There is a reason why it is the World’s Best Selling Book. It’s alive and God will speak through it to you. (Hebrews 4:12)

2. Attend one of our courses that will explain Christianity and help you as you start to understand what this is all about. This will be a safe learning environment which you will be able to get answers to questions you may have, like why are we using the terms God and Jesus? Or what does having a relationship with God look like? Email: of ce@lifezone.church for more details.

3. Join a Small Group! We believe no one should be doing life in isolation. Small Groups play an essential part in making a big Church feel smaller and connecting you with other like minded people in our Church community. Through Small Groups we encourage each other and learn how to ‘Live for Jesus and Share His Love.’ Email lifegroups@lifezone. church for more details.

4. Keep coming to church! Attending church will have a massive impact on your relationship with God as together we can encourage one another in our faith. (Hebrews 10:25)

5. If you have any further questions please email office@lifezone.church or call 07 571 6525

Library

The Library facilitates Growing Deep by resourcing the member of Lifezone church with good Christian literature. Every effort has been made to appropriately check the books/resources for content and theological soundness. The goal is to have a diverse library that celebrate our non-essential framework and encourage healthy discussion around important issues of life. The Library is found in the Lifezone offices so please come use it as much as you can.
