4/20/14 Message

This past Sunday, we celebrated Easter Sunday and looked at the parable of the Prodigal Son. Here are some thoughts from Luke 15:

1) Living apart from God will eventually cost you everything and leave you with nothing. vs 14 “spent everything”
2) God uses times of need to bring us back to our senses. vs 14 “began to be in need”
3) The road home to God begins with repentance. vs 17 “came to his senses”
     A) An acknowledgment of sin - "I have sinned against heaven and against     
     you"
     B) A realization that God takes us back because of His great love, not our  
     goodness. "I'm not worthy"
     C) A desire to start living for God. "Make me like one of your hired men"
4) Returning to God happens when we get up and do something about it. vs 20 “So he got up”
5) God is willing to meet us even while we’re still a long ways off. vs 20 “While he was still a long way off”
6) Returning to God is a time of celebration, not punishment. vs 23 “celebrate”
7) Jesus Christ fully paid the price for our sins to be forgiven, in order that we can be reconciled to God. vs 24 “was dead…is alive”

Care at New Life



We desire to spiritually support our members through the different challenges of life. If you or someone you know needs help, please check out the care section of our website for resources to meet spiritual, emotional and physical needs.

Weekend message values

(Note: This is part of a larger series on the weekend messages. Click here to see the original post)

Different church’s and different speakers have different styles when it comes to the message.  Different styles are great, but the following are three values that hope shape every message at New Life Community Church.

           We believe that messages change lives when they have…..

1) Biblical resonance – The speaker is saying what God’s word is saying

  • Heb 4:12 For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
  • 2Ti 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
  • Matthew 28:20..Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…
  • Mt 7:24 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
  • 1Th 1:5 because our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction.

2) Life Relevance – That takes God’s word into people’s worlds and helps them put it into practice

3) Empowered and Prepared Delivery – That comes from a spiritually  prepared speaker who is ready to share God’s word.

March Giving Report


How did we do in the month of March?
We were $3,103 over our monthly budget.

How much does it “cost” to run the church? 
In a 5-Sunday month it takes a minimum of $38,548.  It allows us to pay the bills and fund a minimal amount to our ministries.

How much was the actual giving for the month?  

The giving for this month was $41,651.

Is there anything else I need to know?
If you’re someone who regularly gives to God at New Life: Thanks! Your giving makes a difference.

If you’re someone who is not yet giving: Make a decision to get involved. Take the first step toward the  biblical practice of giving. You can find out more about giving here.

And for everyone: Please take time this week to pray for the finances of both our church family,  and the individual families that make up New Life.

Making the Most of a Spiritually Mismatched Marriage

Last Sunday, we talked about how to make the most of a spiritually mismatched marriage. Here are some thoughts from the message:
1) God can make a spiritually mismatched marriage work. vs 12-13 “must not divorce”
2) While God can bless a mismatched marriage, we’re not to seek one.
3) A spiritually mismatched relationship, like all relationships, requires an ongoing level of commitment and willingness to make it work. vs 12-13 “willing to live with”
4) God can use the presence of even one Christian to change the spiritual
equation for an entire family. vs 14 “through his wife”
5) God can use even one Christian to make a difference . vs 14
6) In a spiritually mismatched relationship, there may be only so much a believer can do to make it work . vs 15-16 “not bound”
