The Celebration Continues!
Many are giving thanks to God for the generosity and commitment of so many to The Lord’s Church and ministry at New Life! Yesterday we closed on the purchase of the 8th street facility. Yeah, God!
As of yesterday, $29,620 has been donated and another $21,220 committed in pledges. You are indeed Planting for the Future…Helping New Life Church to Grow! Thank you for making a difference.
If you have not had an opportunity to receive a campaign packet, please call the church office or see an usher during worship. Together we will reduce our debt and simultaneously continue the Lord’s work through New Life Church.
PREPARING FOR EASTER
THIS Friday, we will have a special worship service remembering the day Christians refer to as “Good Friday”. At 7pm Friday, in the Sanctuary, we will take part in a variety of readings, songs and reflections… with the service concluding in darkness and a time of prayer. Many have referred to this service as the perfect way to prepare for Easter and claim once again all that Jesus has done for you. Invite a friend, family member or neighbor and plan to participate in remembering “Good Friday”.
Easter Sunday, April 5 – who do you know that doesn’t have an active church home for whom you could be praying and extending an invitation to worship with you at Easter THIS Sunday? YOU could be the invitation God uses to give someone’s faith “new life”! This will indeed be a Resurrection Celebration – the theme for Sunday is “An Eruption of Grace”.
Art of Marriage Event to be held HERE at New Life, April 10-11. See a flyer in the lobby or our website for more info or to register.
MEMBERSHIP & CONNECTING
Getting Acquainted at New Life - there is a bulletin board in the lobby where we will be posting pictures and brief descriptions of New Life households as a way to get better acquainted with one another.
Membership @ New Life - If you're interested in membership at New Life, there will be an informational session on Sunday, April 12, 11:00 a.m. - 1:15 p.m., in the lower level. Lunch included (donations accepted). New members will be received that following Sunday (4/19). Write "Membership" on your Communication Card.
Children’s Church –Beginning in June. If you are interested in serving for a week or more, please contact Chris Marquart. This gives our Sunday School teachers a break for the summer to replenish for the fall. An easy to use DVD driven curriculum will be used. On which Sundays would you be able to serve?
VBS (Vacation Bible School) – July 27-31… can you help? Before we solidify VBS for this year, we need to assess if we will have sufficient volunteers to serve. This can be a great outreach to our community as well as a faith builder to all our youth (and the adults who serve)! Mark “VBS” on your Communication Card (or sign up in the lobby) if you are able and willing to serve in some way.
