(Psst! If you’re looking for a multi-cultural,
Bible-reading, Spirit-filled, imperfect, evangelical church that really seeks to impact our community and our world,
you’re in the right place.)
What’s going on?
It’s one thing to believe in God. It’s another thing to know Him—personally. Yes, He is the powerful, awe-inspiring Creator King of the universe, yet He invites us to be not only His servants, but also His friends. (See John 15:12–16.)
As the perfect follow-up to our Just Live It series, we will explore together what it means to have a Friendship With God. We will particularly focus on our souls (perhaps an area we don’t think about very often)—the part of ourselves that connects with God. We will consider what our souls need to thrive in a real, living relationship with God. Join us November 23, November 30, and December 7 to explore Friendship With God.
What’s coming up?
Thanksgiving will be here before you know it! One of the Thanksgiving traditions at Living Springs is to gather at 10:00am Thanksgiving morning for a special time of singing, praying, and sharing stories of what God has been doing in our lives. If you have a story to share, let us know! We usually have 7 or 8 people prepare what they want to say, so they can share it in about 3 minutes. It can be a dramatic testimony of a miraculous healing, or an ordinary story of how God showed His faithfulness. Every year, the stories are a blessing to the entire Living Springs family.
If you’d like to share a Thanksgiving testimony, email email@example.com.

Steve Hadley is a member of the Living Springs family who has found a unique way to apply the “Just Live It” truths we’ve been studying this year. His Music Events Management students at Columbia College Chicago were intrigued by the idea of making a difference in their world. Under Steve’s leadership, they are collaborating with the Pop Orchestra; the Gospel Choir; Frequency TV; Audio, Arts, and Acoustics; and Jones College Prep to produce and promote a benefit concert to help Chicago’s homeless. They will donate 100% of the earnings to All Chicago to “make homelessness history.”
Will you support their vision? For only $10 per ticket (only $5 for students!), you can help the homeless, encourage difference-makers, and enjoy performances by the Pop Orchestra and the Gospel Choir as they feature selections by gospel great Richard Smallwood. In fact, Mr. Smallwood will be in attendance!
You can get tickets at the door, or order online: http://cccbenefitconcert.eventbrite.com
