Greenville welcomes new church
Young children and strong family is the main focus of the new church coming to Greenville.
LifeChange Church, which was started originally in Montgomery, Ala., by Jason Beiler and his wife, Joy Beiler, will be having its grand opening on Sept. 18 at 201 Glendale Ave.
“We planted LifeChange Church in Montgomery three years ago,” Jason said. “One of the reasons we are bringing LifeChange Church to Greenville is we have always had a vision of having a multi-campus church. Also, we have a great group of people who were traveling to our Montgomery Campus from Butler County and Crenshaw County. We wanted to open a church where they could be involved in and reach out to their communities.”
Being an International Pentecostal Church, it’s very close to being a non-denominational-type church, Joy said.
“We feel like it’s important because the type of church that we are, it’s a very welcoming, contemporary and casual,” Joy said. “We’re going to have a strong emphasis on children, and our heart is to reach children and youth and seek God’s strength in the family. We want Greenville to reach children and reach their families.”
The Beiler family is very excited to be opening a new church to help accomplish a vision.
“We are excited about opening another church because it opens up the door to reach more people for Jesus,” Jason said. “It also helps accomplish our vision of life change — connecting people to God, connecting to others and connecting to the church.”
The church will be having weekly Sunday services beginning at 10:30 a.m., and it will have a monthly youth service on Saturday night — the first being on Oct. 8th at 6 p.m. There will also be Small Group Connect Bible studies at the beginning of next year.
“Our Montgomery campus is multi-cultural, and we would love for our Greenville Campus to be also,” Jason said. “Our hope is as we open our Greenville campus and we’re focused on our vision of connecting people to God — families will be strengthened, we will reach children and youth and impact a generation for Christ. The affect on the community would be limitless.”
