Union City Church has developed LifeLab, a revolutionary spiritual fitness program. LifeLab will bring students from hopelessness and brokenness in any area of their lives into hope and freedom through this experiential process.

LifeLab invites students to identify, examine and release unhealthy behavior. We start every class with a teaching, as outlined below, and then move into a pacesetting time where students meet in groups or one on one to unpack the assigned homework.

This is an experiential journey from brokenness to wholeness by giving God the space necessary to help us clean up the garbage that has piled up in our lives. It is always true that chores are made easier when we have a helper, so we provide a pacesetter, someone to journey along with us. This pacesetter is someone who has been on this journey him/herself.


LifeLab is a daily commitment; a commitment to wholeness and freedom by introducing daily practices into one’s life.

LifeLab is designed for people of all walks of life: couples, singles, beginners, as well as those that have already started a healing journey.


Teaching modules include:

  • Brokenness vs. Wholeness
  • How we are made
  • Our Basic Instincts
  • Belief Systems
  • What is Denial
  • Spirit, Soul and Body
  • Emotions (keying on dealing with anger and fear)
  • Surrender
  • Power and Authority
  • Sexuality
  • Resentments
  • Confession: Personal Inventory
  • Repentance: Defects of the Soul
  • Forgiveness and Amends
  • Community Living
  • The Great Commission

Investment: $200 (installment plan available) or $300/ couple for a life time membership

  • Finances will never keep a person from our LifeLab. Please ask for assistance if needed.

Commitment: 1 class per week, plus homework.
