Dear God sometimes I wonder if you can ever forgive me?

Join us this Sunday as we continue our series “Honest to God”. Our topic for Sunday is forgiveness. All of us have times we blow it big time.  All of us know the feeling of guilt that comes from sin.  This Sunday we’ll look at how someone who fell hard, navigated his way back to God.

P.S. You can get a headstart on the service by reading Psalm 51.

October Financial Update

In the month of October our giving has continued to fall short of meeting the monthly budget. As we continue to struggle financially and as our church members continue to struggle in the current economy, please pray as we consider changes to meet our current giving. We praise God for his continued blessings and thank everyone who gives to God at New Life.

Weekly Prayer Request

Romans 15:4-6 says, “May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Please pray that God will unite us as a church family to accomplish His plans for us.

Praise report!

As many of you may know, we lease our facility on a monthly basis. The cost is about $10,000 a month. Right now times are tight financially, and in a completely unexpected move, our landlord just dropped our cost by $1000 a month! That’s a big help for our church. Take time to praise God for this blessing. Also, please continue to pray that our giving will rise enough for us to meet our monthly bills.

Prayer Request from the Church Staff

Prayer Request from the Church Staff:

The economy is affecting everyone, including the church. Over the last six weeks, both the regular giving and Growing in Faith giving has taken a sharp downturn. As a result we are falling short of paying our most basic bills.

Times are tight for everyone. But we believe that God can provide even in the midst of hard times. Please pray that God will provide for the financial needs of our members and the financial needs of our church. Our God is a mighty God!


"But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine." Psalm 18-19

Honest to God, This Sunday!

September Giving Update

The September Giving was : $28,132
The amount we need to pay the bills : $42,907
The difference : (-$14,775)

We all know about the difficult economic times we are facing. It’s affecting our members and our church. In fact, September was the lowest giving of the year. Please pray for God’s provision and protection over our members and the church.

God at work

Last Sunday, September 29th, we had two people make commitments to Christ and one person make a decision to be baptized.  We also had several first time guests at our services.  Thanks to everyone who is playing a part at our church. And most importantly, let's thank God for the lives He's changing. 

"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."  1 Thessalonians 5:18
