I Love My City Lansing

South_Naz_City.png

Jeremiah 29:7 – “…seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”

South Lansing Christian Church will be participating in I Love My City on Sunday, April 30. This will be our second year joining with other churches and faith-based, not-for-profit organizations throughout Lansing for one simple purpose: to bless our city.

We plan to come together on Sunday morning from 10:00 - 10:30 for a time of worship, communion, and a devotional thought, before disbursing throughout the city to impact our friends and neighbors. Kid's City will not be open that Sunday; this is a family activity in which you work alongside your kids, modeling what it means to serve your community.

The stories from last year’s event were amazing. A couple thousand people from over a dozen churches scattered throughout Lansing making a difference. We want to do so again this year!

Here are a few of the projects that are planned for I Love My City 2017:

  • Great Lakes Christian Home – We will be washing residents’ windows and tidying up their landscaping.
     
  • Oil changes – We will be changing oil for single parents, senior citizens and those on fixed income.
     
  • Marscot Park expansion – We will continue cleaning out the woods between our church’s property and Marscot Park.
     
  • City-wide prayer walks – I Love My City will have prayer teams on prayer walks throughout Lansing.

CLICK HERE to sign up for projects all around the city!

These are exciting projects! But we also want to include projects in which you might have a personal interest. If you or your small group has a project in mind for April 30, we want to hear about it. It can be something that your group does by yourself or, if you want to dream bigger, it can be a project that you invite others to participate in. You can send your project ideas for consideration here.

This was a great event last year, and we expect it to be EPIC again this year. But in order for that to happen we need your participation.

Women's Spring Celebration

  • Great Lakes Christian College

GLCC Women's Spring Celebration

The theme for the evening is “Footprints Around the World”.  GLCC is excited to feature three of our GLCC alumni.  Shelby Honig (Siberia), Marianne Badongen (Philippines), and Beth George (Better Way Imports – Zeeland, MI).   Each will share their story of God’s leading and work around the world.  Their lives are living testimonies of God’s leading, God’s power, and God’s work in reaching many for the Kingdom of God.  We praise the Lord for not only willing servants such as these three women, but what He is accomplishing through their ministries!

April 14 is the early registration deadline.  If registered by that date, the cost is $15/person.  Registrations received after that date will be $20/person.  You can mail in your registration or go online to glcc.edu/events.  For registration questions, call 517-321-0242, ext. 224.

Please invite friends, family, and the women of your congregation to come with you and share in this special evening.  Consider meeting friends in Lansing for shopping or stay over in a local hotel for post-Celebration fellowship.  (By the way, a brand new Chick-fil-A has opened and is located on W. Saginaw Hwy!).  Motel options are listed on the registration form.  The options are endless for you to reconnect with wonderful women from the tri-state area.  We look forward to seeing you in April!

Easter Gathering

  • South Lansing Christian Church

We would love to have you join us on Easter Sunday, April 16th, for our annual community Easter gathering! There are no dress codes or expectations. Simply come and hang out with us. Breakfast and coffee begins at 9:00am, with worship at 10:00am.

You'll also have a front row seat to our new series All Access! 

Have you ever been to a concert? Did you have great seats or were you in the nosebleeds? Eitherway, everyone has the same goal in mind, to get as close as possible. There’s just something about being near the band makes a great concert even more fun. But there’s a limit. No matter how good your tickets are, you can only get so close. There’s a velvet rope you can’t cross, or a security guard you can’t get past because those areas are reserved for “special people:” people with an all-access pass. Maybe you’ve felt that way when it comes to God. You come to church; you sing songs; you pray. But there’s a limit to how close you can get. It feels like there’s a velvet rope around parts of our faith that restricts those parts to special people, to church-staff people, or to super-spiritual people. But what if that’s never what God intended? In this series, we’ll explore what the resurrection of Jesus meant – for real people like us. And we’ll discover that, because of Easter, we have an all-access pass to God and the life he has for us.

Creating Space to Pray & Play: Work Day

Did you know that there is a city park on the other side of the “woods” behind our church building? For the past few years we have been dreaming about connecting our property to that park. We want to develop that as a space where people can play and pray.

Phase one of that project will kick off on Saturday, March 11 from 8 AM - 4PM.  Lunch will be provided!

We will spend the day clearing brush, briars and trash from the property. We need 75-100 people to work that day. Bring your chainsaws and brush cutters. Wear boots and gloves. Plan to get dirty! If you have groups at work or school that do service projects, bring them, too.

This is a HUGE project, and we need massive involvement to get started. You can sign up here!

Questions? Email the foreman here.

Parents Lab

Have you ever seen the hashtag #nofilter on a social media post? It's the idea that the picture has not been affected, changed or shaped by a filter. Though many posts claim to have #nofilter, all people young and old alike have a filter they view all of life through. The filter is faith. Your faith affects, changes and shapes how you see yourself, others and life. Faith is the filter your children and students will choose their thoughts, decisions and actions through. You're invited to join us and our parenting panel for a discussion on how to foster an authentic faith in your home.    

#nofilter! Josh tried making a cup of coffee with an Aeropress WITHOUT a filter. Yikes.

#nofilter! Josh tried making a cup of coffee with an Aeropress WITHOUT a filter. Yikes.

We believe that the two influences of church and home combined have a greater impact on your student's faith development. Their faith is vital because faith is the filter that students view themselves, God and others through. You're invited to join us and our parenting panel for a discussion on how to foster an authentic faith in your home. 

Childcare will be offered, but we need to adequately prepare, so please RSVP with the number of adults and children who will be attending with you!

Family Worship Service

On Sunday, July 31st our worship service will look a little different. There will be more kids in the big room than most other Sundays! In Kid's City, The Aquarium and Zoo will be open for babies and toddlers, but the K-5th rooms will be closed for the morning. Why? There's several reasons.

  • First, we want to create time for families to worship together.
  • Second, Josh and Walter, our Children's and Youth ministers are going to share South's vision for partnering with families to raise godly kids.
  • Finally, the annual church picnic will be right after the service and Kid's City Park will be used as a staging area to prepare for this event. We're expecting a big crowd, we've invited our SLCC family and friends from the community! 

If you have younger children, we believe it's vital for you to explain the different elements of the worship service to them as they participate with you. We will have activity totes at the Kid's City Check In Station for you to pick up. These will have various activities for them to engage in while listening to the sermon. 

Our hope is to create space and time for your family to worship together and share our hearts on partnering with families!
