Joining God in Restoring a Broken World is our vision at LifeSpring. We work to have an impact in our community through the path of community restoration. Community restoration is about strategic, collaborative efforts to bring transformation locally to what is broken including individual lives, families, neighborhoods, and whole communities. Ongoing programs and special emphases/events target specific needs in our community. Partnerships with local organizations that specialize in specific areas with deep expertise do more to fulfill that mission.

Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome any hurt, hang-up, or habit (such as low self-esteem, need to control, depression, fear, anger, perfectionism, broken relationships, abuse, pornography, or dependency on alcohol/drugs).
The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to help us experience more of God’s hope, healing, and freedom in our lives. By working through the principles with others who can relate, we grow spiritually and are freed from what is weighing us down and holding us back.
Weekly meetings provide a safe place you can take off your “mask.” You decide when and how much you participate. Confidentiality and anonymity are strictly maintained.
The Food Pantry lives out the LifeSpring Community mission which is to join God in restoring a broken world. It does more than just hand out food to those in need; it partners with people for holistic help and healing in multiple aspects of life. Instead of counting how many people they help, they concentrate on helping people in need and being a part of God's process of restoration.
You can join this effort by bringing donations and placing them in the cart near the main entrance! Volunteers for the food pantry team are needed to purchase needed products and transform the church gathering area into a welcoming, empowering place where folks in need get a “hand-up” not a “hand-out.” For more info, contact Autumn Coots, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Caring tutors meet once a week, one-on-one, with students from Harrison Elementary during the school year. This is a partnership with City Gospel Mission, Legacy Christian Church and LifeSpring.

This City His City
This City, His City is a collaboration of local leaders from churches in the Harrison area, ministries, non-profits, and other organizations that have come together to make a positive impact on our community. We break down barriers that divide the Body of Christ and promote unity through monthly leader gatherings and annual ministry events. Leaders that focus on children's ministry or student ministry meet separately at times to discuss regional emphases. We believe there's a greater impact when we work together.
