Bread of Life Ministry Pipestone


Bread of Life, a ministry of ATLAS for Life, a non-profit, faith-based organization, began with a simple word, "yes." This yes was to God in December of 2017 and since then He has gracefully led each step of the way in making the vision of this ministry a reality. We aim to reach out to share the hope, love, and grace of Jesus Christ through building relationships and fellowship with one another.
The heart of this ministry stems from a deep desire to make all feel welcome, loved, worthy, and capable. If you have ever felt lonely, tired, afraid, unloved, unworthy, forgotten, rejected, ignored, or hopeless, you are in good company with us. Although each and every one of us experience feelings of not measuring up, we believe that our Creator, God, sees us as his dearly loved children, and only by His power can we learn to see ourselves as God sees us. Psalms 145:8-9 states, “The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and great in faithful love. The Lord is good to everyone, his compassion rests on all he has made.”
We exist to seek approval of God and not of man. Romans 12:2 says, “Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.” God has led us to go forth with a spirit of intentionality in seeking out and going to those who may be lost, hurting, and in need of God's love and grace in abundance. We desire to gather together as friends to share in food, fellowship, worship, prayer, music, and Scripture. We want to share our story and to hear yours. We hold tight to a vision of bringing together a community of people despite differences such as gender, age, race, denomination, socio-economic status, capabilities, or background. Instead of letting these differences divide us, let us embrace them and learn from and encourage one another.
We pray that we are good stewards of the time, money, and talents that we have been gifted by God and that we are glorifying Him in our thoughts, words, deeds, and actions. The blessings we bestow by serving God through serving others is considered great joy, a joy that can only be found in Jesus and that is burning inside of us to be shared with all people.
 

The Gathering Place

The Gathering Place provides a place for people to gather and chat.  During a short devotion, coffee is served, and conversation starts.

It is a low key, social, interest driven discussion meant to meet the various needs of the participants. 

The Gathering Place  meets each 2nd Thursday at 2:00 at ATLAS.
One of our staff leads the devotions and discussion.  Coffee and Conversation follow.  See you there!

Griefshae20161209 19947 xr2r3p 960x
It hurts to lose someone.
With GriefShare you will learn how to walk the journey of grief and be supported along the way.  It is a place where grieving people find healing and hope.
GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.
How GriefShare works
GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.  There are thousands of GriefShare grief recovery support groups meeting throughout the US, Canada, and in over 10 other countries.
Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. We will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.  A workbook is provided for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling.

Dave Ramsey is very engaging, has a sense of humor and has a wealth of knowledge as to the wise and not so wise ways of handling our finances. He presents his info in a way that is easy to follow. He has opened my eyes to how to get rid of debt as fast as possible, how to avoid paying unnecessary interest , and how to invest wisely. I would recommend this class to anyone and everyone!
