Healing Timeline

What is Healing Timeline?
Healing Timeline is a tool developed by a brain scientist to assist emotional healing from traumatic experiences by restructing brain pathways. Healing Timeline uses real memories from the participant's lifetime to help acknowledge that a trauma or difficult experience is over.
By allowing Jesus into the memories, one can experience increased freedom from the pain attached to certain memories. Current brain research supports the concept that the brain neurons can be reconfigured to function differently.
In other words, you can think in a new way!
Healing Timeline just may be the tool for you!

 Life Change is a workshop for those who desire to be equipped to make the choice for a significant change in their lives.

Life School


Life School of Supernatural Ministry Night School 

Is a discipleship and leadership training center based on the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (Redding, CA) curriculum.  Our goal is to train and equip the Body of Christ to live the real, abundant life that Jesus spoke of in John 10:10.  It's not enough to go to church - God has called us to BE the church.  Being ONLY ONE NIGHT A WEEK (Tuesdays), it is very feasible for everyone to participate, couples, families, and singles who have work or other responsibilities to attend to throughout the week.  The school is designed to provide a dynamic, interactive community setting where students can grow in their character, discover their purpose, and experience the supernatural life that is in Christ Jesus.  Using DVD curriculum provided by BSSM, students will have the great opportunity to learn from ministers like Bill Johnson, Kris Vallotton, and Danny Silk. Live teaching from local ministers will also be included in the training.  Life School embraces a revival culture and trains its students to live a life of signs, wonders, and miracles in a practical, day to day setting. Ministry opportunities will be presented.

Sunday Morning


Pre-Service Prayer


Every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:00am, we host a pre-service prayer meeting in the Upper Room. This is an important time of preparing our hearts in God’s presence, as well as intercession for the service and His people. Anyone is welcome to join us as we worship and pray. Just come with a willing heart, ready to intercede for God's people and to experience His love afresh.
 
 
 

Greeting


The heart and focus of our Greeting Ministry is to help everyone that enters through our doors to feel welcome, loved, and valued.  At Life Church, we are first and foremost about family.  Our greeters make it possible for everyone who walks in to feel like part of the family. Whether handing out bulletins, guiding children to Children's Church, or offering needed assistance, the greeters are an essential part of our team. They are the first faces you see when walking through the door!  
 
If you would like to become a part of our greeting team or would simply like to learn more about it, call our church office: 503-362-0362.
 
 
 

Cafe Life


Cafe Life is an essential part of Life Church's Welcome Center. Despite how your Sunday morning has started, Cafe Life is there to share Jesus's love (and caffeine). We create all kinds of delicious drinks, from mochas and cappuccinos to hot teas and Italian sodas. Cafe Life is also an easy, comfortable way for church guests to interact with the body!
 
Our hope is that every person who walks into Life Church feels welcome and loved. If it's your first time with us, fill out a Life Touch Card from the church bulletin and turn it in at the Cafe to get a free drink! 
 

 

Hospitality/Fellowship Time


Our Hospitality Ministry is the newest addition to our Welcome Center at Life Church.  Each Sunday morning from 10:00am until the start of service, we have Fellowship Time. Here people are welcome to hang out, eat goodies, and build connections.  During this time, our Hospitality Ministry provides delicious treats, coffee, and water to facilitate a welcoming atmosphere both to our guests and to our regular members.  
 
If you would like to become a part of the Hospitality Ministry, which would involve serving and preparing the food and beverages during a Sunday morning Fellowship Time, please call our office at 503-362-0362.
 
 
 

Ushering


Our ushers are absolutely key to making a Sunday morning service happen at Life Church. From unlocking the doors in the morning to preparing the communion to facilitating the offering, our ushers take care of the practical issues each week. If you are a guest, feel free to ask one of our ushers a question so he or she can direct you to the appropriate ministry or person!
 
Our ushers also are often involved in various Life Church events, faithfully serving wherever they are needed. If you have any questions about the Ushering Ministry or would like to get involved, please call our church office at 503-362-0362.
 
 
 

Sunday Prayer Team


Our Sunday Prayer Team focuses on hope, healing, and breakthrough for God's people. Every Sunday after service, the ministry team is available to pray for anyone, whether they need healing in their body, spiritual renewal or encouragement, financial breakthrough, salvation for the soul, etc.  
 
The team is trained to bring words of life and encouragement in every situation.  If you have a need, come to the front after service, and we'd be more than happy to pray with you!  

Heaven to Earth


Prayer

 
Intercessory Prayer
Scripture tells us to "pray without ceasing" (1 Thess. 5:17).  At Life Church, intercession is an indispensable part of both our support and our ministry.  In revival history, prayer is the fuel to ignite a city, a land, and its people toward God.  We know that God has called us, as His people, to pray, and that in any circumstance He hears us and is faithful to answer.  The main focuses of our intercessory prayer group are praying for the church (leaders and ministries), our city, and specific nations each time we gather.
 
Since starting the group, God has been faithful to provide specific prayer focuses.  He leads the way.  Anyone is invited to pray - just have an open heart to hear what the Spirit is saying, and declare it!  Even if you are new to intercession, it's a great place to jump in and learn as you stand alongside others. The group currently meets on the last Sunday of every month, right after service (approximately 12:15pm) in the Upper Room!
 
 
Prayer Chain
The Life Church Prayer Chain has been standing in the gap for members of our body and beyond for 20+ years. The chain consists of faithful prayer warriors who are informed with each new prayer request coming in from the church Body; these people take time out of their day to bring these requests before the Father.  Anybody can submit a prayer request, via phone, email, or Life Touch Cards. The Prayer Chain is notified as soon as possible, and will pray for needs of any kind.  You may also use the email listed below to connect with our leader, Ann Wunsch, about becoming a part of the Prayer Chain yourself!
 
Phone: 503-362-0362
 
 
Sunday Prayer Team
Our Sunday Prayer Team focuses on hope, healing, and breakthrough for God's people.  Every Sunday after service, the prayer team is available to pray for anyone, whether they need healing in their body, spiritual renewal or encouragement, financial breakthrough, salvation for the soul, etc.  
 
The team is trained to bring words of life and encouragement in every situation.  
If you have a need, come to the front after service, and we'd be more than happy to pray with you!  
 
 
Wednesday Night Prayer
This is a weeknight opportunity for people to come together in prayer. We meet from 7:00pm - 8:00pm, every Wednesday night, in the modulars.

Outreach


Missions


Missions

Life World Missions
Uniting Teams & Bringing Life
 
A ministry at Life Church was birthed with the mindset that we can join forces to bring life to those in greater need than ourselves. Our primary focus is to provide missionary support and encouragement to the nations. We coordinate and provide short term mission trips to help with humanitarian aid, building projects, and to bring encouragement to those on the mission field.  
It is our vision to connect people from different churches, clubs, age groups, and backgrounds to form a cohesive team to demonstrate God's love and develop life-lasting relationships with those on the mission field.  In doing this, we are helping in the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
Matthew 28:18-20 - THEREFORE GO!
 
Who We Support: Who are we, as a church body, pouring into?  What ministries and people are we supporting financially and prayerfully as they bring the kingdom of heaven to earth?
 
 
The Poliakov Family

Nikolai and Tatyana Poliakov are members of Life Church yet travel extensively into Russia, helping to establish churches, support church leaders, and go into remote areas to share the Good News!  Nikolai and Tatyana were both born in Ukraine, and grew up in the Pentecostal underground church during the Soviet Union. In 1992, they began to minister in the easternmost part of Russia planting churches.
 
Today, they work with orphanages and prisons, and give humanitarian aid to needy people. The uniqueness of this work is a ministry to the tribal people: Koryaks, Evens, Itelmens, and Aleuts. These people live in the tundra area,and most of them are reindeer herders. Today there are churches even among the indigenous people groups. Nikolai and Tatyana have four children: Karolina, Nick, Sergei, and Andrew. This family has sown much into the Kingdom and bring great strength to our church body. Let's declare the goodness and blessing of God over them as they bring the love of Jesus into both Russia and the United States!  
 
 
 
Brandon & Bethany Baird


   Brandon and Bethany have been a wonderful and powerful addition to the Life Church body ever since they moved
   to Salem from Astoria in 2005. They've been together since high school and were married in 2006. Both completed Life
   School, and have been trained up to bring "real life" and the love of Christ  wherever they go. For years they have
   felt a call to take the gospel to Mexico, and to live there as missionaries.
 
   Since October of 2012, they have been serving in Mexico! They live in Guaymas, Sonora  and serve with many different ministries. Their main focus is with Kings Kids Orphanage. Besides being house parents to some amazing young boys, they teach English classes, manage media and newsletters, fix  and update computers & electronics and help with whatever other projects are going on.  Together, their mission is to bridge gaps, deepen relationships, and love on purpose.
 
Brandon & Bethany want to see unity in the Body of Christ; people experiencing real relationships with each other and with God; and never ending, unbiased love. Join us in supporting this amazing couple as they bring the love of Christ to Mexico! Learn more about Brandon & Bethany at their website.
 
SonRise Church

We at Life Church have joined forces with SonRise Church, located in downtown Salem.  SonRise is a radically loving church that reaches out to all, especially the homeless and hurting youth of our city. Pastor Mark Morrow's heart is to touch people with the truth of Jesus, not dead religion. Stitches Outreach for youth is also hosted at their location.  Check out their Facebook for additional information: Salem Sonrise Church Facebook

"This ministry is in the trenches, behind enemy lines, in the Salem area. We are missionaries, sent to the spiritually darkest and monetarily poorest souls in Salem. Daily, we are the light of Jesus to the broken, the homeless, the suicidal, the thieves, gangs, strippers, pagans, the sexually confused, substance addicted...the deceived. Our call is to the lost—enslaved by sin, self, and Satan. Our ministry is to the blind, whose minds have been darkened by the god of this world. At SonRise, eyes are being opened for the first time, to the beauty and glory of God. Know this…the power of God…the only authentic, authoritative power—is saving souls and changing lives. We are blessed to walk among the spiritually dead, seeing God breathe new life into dry bones.
 
Thank you for your prayers and support. We are all members of a greater cause than the lines drawn by denominationalism. We are missionaries sent by you, the members of the Kingdom of God. God bless you spiritually with His overwhelming presence." John 20:21 - Pastor Mark Morrow 
 
 
Craig & Renee Oviatt

 
Craig and Renee are local missionaries, working with and for Salem Dream Center. Salem Dream Center is a phenomenal non profit ministry giving life, love, hope and more to local children and families, with a focus on the West Salem area. Dream Center is open every Saturday morning for kids to come eat, play games, and be loved in ways their families just can't provide. They do so much more than that, check out all they do at salemdreamcenter.org.
