Serving Spotlight!


We want to say thanks to Emily Philips for making a difference at New Life.  Emily serves as a volunteer in the Kidzlife nursery.  Thanks for serving at New Life!

Outreach Mailing

God calls us to reach out to others.  We want to send an invitation to every home within the immediate radius of the church this fall - a total of about 15,000 homes.
We need your help to do it.  The cost breaks down to $30.00 to reach 100 homes.  Can you give over and above your regular giving to help with the cost of this outreach?  If so, when you make your gift, designate it to "mailer".

9.28.14 Message

On Sunday we studied in 1 Corinthians 15:1-26.  We talked about "The Gospel" and the importance of The Resurrection, The Effect on the Gospel and Placing Your Faith in the Risen Christ. 

To listen to the message or download the outline, visit our website. 

Children's Offering

Each weekend, children have an opportunity to give an offering in our Kidzlife classes. This is an opportunity for kids to learn giving to God at an early age. We invited parents to use this as an opportunity to share this important value with their kids. If you have any questions, please contact our children's staff at kidzlife@newlifecommunitychurch.net

Bible Reading Challenge

Are you reading through the book of Revelations? You are if you are following our Bible Reading Challenge. The Bible is the inspired word of God that helps us to know God and follow him. Many of us own a Bible, but don’t have a regular plan for reading it. To help bring focus, we’ve put together a Bible reading plan that brings you through a chapter of the Bible each day. If you follow this day by day checklist, you’ll be taking the next step toward knowing more of God’s word.

Check out our website to download our Bible Reading Challenge checklist.

Counseling Resource

We desire to spiritually support our members through the different challenges of life.  Our primary vehicle for spiritual support are Life Groups. Life Groups are a place where members can share needs, pray for each and receive spiritual support and encouragement.
While we hope that many needs can be meet in small groups, we realize that often times a member may need a trained counselor or a specialized support group to provide the needed help.

While our church does not have “in house” counseling, or support groups, we can point you to two local organizations that can help.  These local resources can supplement the spiritual support our church provides.  One of the organizations focuses on counseling, the other offers  support groups.  To learn more, check out our Counseling Resource Page.

Mexico Outreach



Our church supports an orphanage in Ensenada, Mexico called Estado 29. Towards the beginning of each month, a team of volunteers goes on a one-day trip to Ensenada to help share God's love with the kids there.
