Successfulness can lead to forgetfulness



“Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God”  Deuteronomy 8:11

These are God’s instructions to a group of people who are getting ready to enter the promised land.  God’s people have spent forty years in the desert and now they are getting ready to “settle down” and own “fine homes” and see their “silver and gold increase”.  In the midst of their successfulness, God calls them to not forget the Lord.  

On Sunday we studied Deuteronomy chapter 8 and our big idea was: Successfulness can lead to forgetfulness.  To hear the service go here.


Life Group Schedule During the Summer

 

Life groups are weekly gatherings where you can connect with others to share life and grow spiritually. Between now and the end of Summer, some of our life groups continue to meet, some take a break, some meet but on a modified schedule.  If you are considering visiting a group (and we hope you are) please call ahead.  Our next Life Group session will start up in September.

To learn more about life groups stop by the information table or go online to www.newlifecommunitychurch.net

Bible Reading Challenge



Are you reading through the book of Exodus?  You are if you're 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-to-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 checklists.

Last Sunday's Message...





From a distance everybody loves the idea of the promised land, but when you get close enough to see the blessings of the promised land, you also get close enough to see the challenges involved in taking it.  God presents His people with an opportunity to possess the promised land, but as the they scout out the situation, they are convinced it’s too difficult and they bow out.  During the weekend service we learned that scary situations are an opportunity to look past our limitations and remember who God is.  

To listen to the service, click here.

Packing lunches this Sunday...



God calls us to care for the poor.  Once a month members of our church pack sack lunches for our community.  These lunches are distributed to the homeless and those in financial distress.  Our next sack lunch packing day is this Sunday, June 19th after our 11 am service in the church parking lot.  If you would like more info, please contact Jennifer Stroble here.

Drummer Wanted...



Do you like to play the drums?  Do you have a knack for keeping a beat?  If so, and you have been a member of our church for 6 months or more, then we want YOU!!  If you can play the drums and are interested in serving with our Worship Team, please send your info to Aaryn Sanders at worship@newlifecommunitychurch.net.

Counseling Resources...

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 other and receive spiritual support and encouragement.

While we hope that many needs can be met in life 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 specialized support groups, we can point you to local organizations that can help.

These local resources can supplement the spiritual support our church provides.  One of the organizations focuses on counseling and the other offers support groups.  To learn more, check out our Counseling Resource page.
