ALL CHURCH BOOK STUDY: Soul Print by Mark Batterson

There never has been and never will be anyone like you. But that isn’t a testament to you. It’s a testament to the God who created you. The problem? Few people discover the God-given identity that makes them unlike anyone else. Mark Batterson calls this divine distinction our soulprint. God would like to introduce you to yourself. In Soulprint, Mark pours the contagious energy he’s known for into helping you experience the joy of discovering who you are...and the freedom of discovering who you’re not. The wonderful fact is that your uniqueness is God’s gift to you, and it’s also your gift to God. A self-discovery book that puts God at the center rather than self, Soulprint encourages you to recognize and explore the five defining moments in your life that will determine your destiny. Along the way, you’ll find that you’re not just turning the pages of a book. You’re turning the pages of your remarkable, God-shaped, world-changing life. This year, in addition to our study in the Sunday school classes, our individual reading, and our worship service messages based on the readings, email reflections will also be offered. To receive your weekly emails you may sign up when you pick up your books. Our All Church Book Study begins February 9th and books will be distributed January 26th through February 2nd in the hospitality center in the CLC and in the main intersection of the education building.

Spiritual Formation

Spiritual Formation is the process of being conformed to the image of Christ for the sake of others. Through Bible Study, community, service, and spiritual practices such as prayer and worship, God matures, strengthens, comforts and guides us.

Spiritual formation is expressed in three ways: maturity of being, characterized by a personal and communal relationship with God in Jesus Christ; maturity of knowing,
characterized by intentional and transformational learning and reflection about God, self, and the world; and maturity of doing, characterized by intentional actions compelled by what we believe and who we are in Christ.

Care Ministries

God's purpose for our lives is that we grow and nurture engaged disciples. We best love God and make disciples by loving others. Through the Care ministries of FUMC Lubbock, we reach out to members of our church and community to provide support and nuture through a variety of ministries such as counseling, crisis intervention, handy man ministry, shawl ministry and many others.
