Get the word out

Last Weekend, I (Mike Hannah) passed out a 100 flyers in my neighborhood. It was good exercise, and more importantly, I wanted to get the word out about our church. This Sunday, grab some of our church invitations and give them to a friend, leave some at a starbucks, or pass them out where you live.  You can find flyers on the information tables in the lobby and also at the outside information tents. 

Prayer Request

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

New Small Group for Moms!

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.
We will begin meeting on Friday mornings at 11:00am starting September 19th, 2008 right here at our Corona Hills building.

Come and join us!

For more information, call the church office at 951-736-5433 or send an email to groups@newlifecommunitychurch.net.

Want to help with Hurricane Gustav

A church in Louisiana is on the front end of helping those effected by the hurricane. Pastor Dino Rizzo from the Healing Place Church is asking for help.  One of the number one needs is tarps. This church has already handed out over 10,000 tarps, but need more. Below is a little video you can watch, or if you want to help, see below.

Leader's Rally September 8th!

Summer is over and September is here, Join us for our first Leader’s Rally of the Fall. Our theme for the meeting is a question we all ask in serving God - “Am I Really Making a Difference?”

Sometimes when serving, it’s easy to wonder what impact we’re having. Especially when we’re not seeing results. Join us as we look at a verse where God encourages us that our ministry makes a difference.

In preparation for the meeting, come with one example of how you see God using our church to make a difference.
