Counseling Resources

We desire to spiritually support our members through the different challenges of life. Our primary vehicle for spiritual support are small groups. Small 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.

March 2011 Giving Update

How did we do in the month of March?

We met our budget for the month of March!
How much does it “cost” to run the church?

In a 4 Sunday month it takes a minimum of $30,803. This is the bare bones fixed costs of keeping the doors open. It allows us to pay the bills and fund a minimal amount to our ministries.
How much was the actual giving for the month?

The giving for March was $34,989.56. This surpassed our minimum budget of $30,803.
Is there anything else I need to know?

  • If you’re someone who regularly gives to God at New Life: Thanks! Your giving makes a difference.
  • If you’re someone who is not yet giving: Make a decision to get involved. Take the first step toward the biblical practice of giving. You can find out more about giving here.
  • And for everyone: Please take time this week to pray for the finances of both our church family, and the individual families that make up New Life.
