Help Us Share the Good News

-->

There are over 400,000 people within driving distance of our church and many of them need to hear about Jesus Christ.  Will you play a part in helping share Christ’s love?  Between now and Fall we want to reach out to our community. Here are some practical ways you can play a part. 

1) Take advantage of everyday opportunities to point people to  Christ.  Let your light shine through your everyday conversations and actions.  Let people see that Christ is real in your life.

2) Invite someone to church on Easter – Invite someone to Easter Sunday on April 5th.  A personal invitation can be a powerful tool that God uses to share His love.   

3) Help spread the Word on Facebook Each time we start a new series, we post an invitation on Facebook.  Help spread the word by hitting the “share” button when the post shows up in your Facebook feed.

4) Pass along an Invite card – When a new series comes around our church usually puts invite cards in the bulletin.  Hand a card to someone you know, or place a card in a public place, maybe a bulletin board at work.

5) Help us reach out via mail and web – From time to time our church mails invitations into the community.  The cost for the mailing breaks down to about $15 to reach a hundred homes.  Other times we use online methods of outreach.  You can play a part by making a special gift to help with our next community outreach.

6) Pray for our church to reach people for Christ - Take time this week to pray that God would use our outreach efforts to reach people for Christ.

Offering Envelope

Offering envelopes are available in the lobby.  They are especially useful when giving a special gift or giving cash. When we receive cash, we need the donor's information in order to record it for income tax purposes.

Can You Pray for Members of Our Church?



If so, you may want to join our prayer team.  Each week, members of our church turn in personal prayer requests.  These prayer requests are put on a prayer list and sent to those who will left them up in prayer.  If you have a desire to pray for others, you may be a great fit for this prayer team.  People who are part of this prayer team must be members of New Life and must make a commitment to keep all requests confidential.  If you are interested in being a part of this team, send an email to prayer@newlifecommunitychurch.net and we will contact you about what’s involved.

There is no requirement to continue to use online giving.  It is very easy to begin or stop. 
What if I need to change the amount of a recurring gift, or cancel altogether? 
You can view, edit, or delete a scheduled contribution at anytime, including the credit card, date, frequency and amount as long as you created an account on the giving page. 
Are there any fees involved with giving online? 
Not for the giver.  The church pays any fees associated with online giving.
Is there anything else to know with recurring giving? 
When you schedule a recurring donation, a small validation amount (.11 cents) will pend on your account BUT WILL NOT be charged or post to your account.  It is only for validation purposes.  Please allow 2-3 days for this to disappear.

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 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.

Committing Your Life to Christ

Want to find out how to start a relationship with Christ?
If so, we want to help you take the next step.  We’ve prepared some helpful materials that show what the Bible says about becoming a follower of Christ.  These self-study materials will assist you in taking the first steps to growing spiritually.  To receive these materials, or to talk to someone in person, please contact us at connect@newlifecommunitychurch.net.  You can also check out our online information.
