Easter Sunday



Jesus Christ changes lives!  It doesn’t matter who you are, or what you’ve done, anyone can make a new start with God.  Join us on Easter Sunday, April 16th and learn how to make a new beginning.  Service times are 9:30 and 11:00 am, so pick the time that’s best for you. For more info check out www.newlifecommunitychurch.net

Use Questions for Personal Growth



Each week, we provide an outline during the weekend service. On one side, we provide the Bible passage to look at during the service. On the other side, there are discussion questions that connect to that same weekly passage. 
 
These questions are used by our Life Groups that meet throughout the week. But these same questions can be used as a personal study tool. If you are not yet part of a group, you can use these questions during your personal Bible study time. They can provide an opportunity to dig deeper and reinforce the passage from the previous weekend’s service. Also, if you miss a service, both the message and the questions can be downloaded online.

Good Friday, Night of Worship



Join us on Good Friday, April 14th at 6:00 pm for a night of worship, as we reflect upon Christ's death on the cross. 
  
Childcare will be provided for infants to 4th graders.  Older children are welcome to join in the adult service.

 
Visit us at newlifecommunitychurch.net for more info.

"When You Need a Miracle" Series (3.26.17 Message)



On Sunday, we continued our "When You Need a Miracle" series, while going through the book of Mark.

Common contributors to an "if you can" faith:

1) When problems go on for years and nothing changes.
2) When we feel like we gave God a chance and it didn't work.
3) When God's people let us down.


Three choices for reaching out when our faith is running low:

1) Admit we struggle with doubt.
2) Ask God's help to overcome our unbelief.
3) As someone who is being made new in Christ Jesus, choose to believe in the One to whom you belong.

On Mission

-->


Our purpose as a church is to...

“reach people for Christ and get them grounded, growing and on mission”.



In this post we’re going to look at what it means to be “on mission”


Someone who is on mission for Christ…




1) Makes a commitment to the body of Christ
.

Scripture says that we’re all members of one body –the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12) Someone who is on mission for Christ recognizes the importance of the body of Christ and makes a commitment to play their part as members of Christ’s church.



2) Makes a contribution to the cause of Christ.

The Bible says that Christ’s ministry is done as each person plays their part (Eph 4:16) Someone who is on mission for Christ eagerly seeks to make a contribution to the cause of Christ. (1 Peter 4:10).



3) Pursues their unique role in the mission of Christ.

God has given us each a unique life purpose in the mission of Christ. Each person is created on purpose and for a purpose. As Ephesians 2:10 says, “…we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”. Someone who is on mission wants to discover and do those “good works” which God has prepared in advance. An “on mission” follower of Jesus desires to understand and increasingly prioritize their life around their God-given role in the cause of Christ.|

When You Need a Miracle...


Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Can you lend a helping hand to those in need?




The Bible says “He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done.” (Proverbs 19:17).  There are members of our community, and even our own church family who are in need.  One practical way to help is to buy a gift card to a local grocery store, or superstore.  You can bring the gift card to the church office and we will use it to help a member in need.

"When You Need a Miracle" Series (3.5.17 Message)

2) Sometimes it feels like when we need God the most, He isn't doing anything. 
3) Sometimes it feels like God doesn't care. 
4) Storms are an opportunity to trust God's word. 
5) Storms are an opportunity to believe God in spite of the circumstances. 
6) Storms are an opportunity to learn who Jesus really is.
