March Giving Update

Hey Members, here is the giving update for the month of March. As you can see it took both the regular giving and the Growing in faith giving to get within striking distance of our budget. March was a five Sunday month which is a little different. Clearly we are still in tough times economically.

This month’s giving reconfirms several things.

1) Our church, like many churches are continuing to see lower giving.

2) That our priority of using Growing in Faith giving to first take care of our church family, and the property second, was the right one. If we did not have the Growing in Faith giving to meet this month’s budget, we would be in trouble.

3) Whether it’s regular giving or special giving, we need everyone’s help to ride out this challenging time.

4) Keep praying – God has called our church to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and make disciples – let’s keep praying for His provision as we move forward.

Accelerate Group

Accelerate is a small group designed to move you forward in your relationship with Christ and your connection to the church family.

Thanks to everyone who is giving to Growing in Faith. As you know, right now it’s taking both our regular giving and GIF giving to keep our church going.

We know that both the church and it’s members are facing financial challenges that most of us have not seen in our lifetimes. But with your help we’re keeping the church afloat and focused on our mission of making disciples.

Some good news - As part of this new round of Growing in Faith, members committed to give $6893 a month. In March, we’ve already received $6300 and we still have a week to go. So thanks to everyone who is giving, each week your generosity is making a difference.

Mommy Small group

Hi Moms,
You probably recognize Mandy and Vanessa in the photo and their newest additions, Samantha and Luke! These are the leaders of New Life's newest small group for moms.
If you've been wanting to get involved in a small group, but haven't been able to find one that works with your schedule, this might be the group for you!
This new small group is a place where moms can come with their young children and not worry about who is watching them because you will be! Our kids will be right here with us snuggling, sleeping, nursing, and sometimes even participating (we have very smart kids!) while we study the Bible together and lift each other up.

Come and join us!

For more information, call the church office at 951-736-5433
