3C Friendships

Join us in January for

3CFriendships are the building blocks of a better world. 

Wherever you look, you can find division: in politics, the press, pro sports, or even parents in the same home. People are picking sides and picking fights. When we choose divisiveness and only associate with people like ourselves, we miss out on a life full of love and learning that comes from having 3CFriendships: committed, cross-cultural, Christ-centered friendships which are the building blocks of the joyous movement that God desires to see in our world. Join us at LifeChurch Auburn Hills this January to learn how you can form 3CFriendships and experience life to its fullest!

On Monday, January 20, join lead pastor Donearl Johnson, the LifeChurch Auburn Hills team, and the entire Auburn Hills community for a celebration honoring the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Starting at 8:30am, the event will feature a free breakfast, music, and message to help us focus on the work Dr. King did, and the work we must still do.

One of the key ways we develop 3C Friendships at LifeChurch Auburn Hills is learning the stories of others. Sankofa is an opportunity to learn the stories surrounding the Civil Rights movement in the United States, becoming more conscious of context we may not be aware of. This 3-day bus trip throughout the country is a journey we encourage all to take.
