Basement Improvement Project

The Vitality Team has identified the worship center’s basement as our next revitalization project. This is a good-sized space, especially for a small church. We are convicted that we ought to be using it more effectively than we’ve been doing lately.


Our plan is to get the new, improved basement Café up and running by March 18, in time for Easter. How can you help? So far, we have two events scheduled:

  • Sunday, February 18, from 11 am to 3 pm. Work Party to clean walls, wash windows & blinds, and tape off for painting. Sandwiches will be provided for the work crew.
  • Saturday, February 24, from 1pm to 5 pm. Painting Party, with Potluck Dinner to follow at 5 pm.

Let’s show this under-appreciated space some love!



VINE Foundational Class


God designed you to be part of a church family. That’s what JLP is supposed to be: your family. We want to share with you what we believe and where we’re going.

In the VINE Foundational Class we will discuss:

  • God’s mission in the world, and how it translates to our own mission here in Anchorage to help people trust Jesus for a better life.
  • JLP’s history, how we’re organized as a congregation, how we relate to two denominations.
  • Why we need to be part of a church family, and what it means to be a member.


  • If you’re new to church.  Everyone is welcome, and no previous Bible knowledge or church experience is required.
  • If you’re new to JLP. This class is designed to prepare people for JLP membership, but you may participate in the class without becoming a member.
  • If you’re not new to JLP. People who are already members are encouraged to attend. This is especially true for people who’ve been attending awhile but never attended a class like this. (Or did, but forgot what you learned!)

Dinner will be provided. Child care can be arranged. If you plan to attend, please sign up, so we’ll have sufficient materials on hand and can make child care available.

VINE is the first in a four-part series of classes for people in the JLP church community. The second class in the series will take place in September.
