This week’s Blessings Re-Cap
Blessings just keep finding New Life Church… last week, phone and internet lines were installed (we'll share the phone number when the voicemail system is up and running), and someone gifted us a copy machine! A one-day VBS is being planned for Wednesday, August 6, and people are stepping up left and right to volunteer their time and talents. Thank you!
To-date, over $3,000 Giving Tree donations have been offered (over and above the regular giving), and on Sunday, July 13, we had 106 in worship!
With an average attendance of nearly 100, even during the summer vacation months, there is a definite need for two services instead of just one. We felt it was very important to keep a fellowship time between the services so that people attending each service still have the opportunity to see the people at the other service. We are a growing family, and our fellowship time is important! After much consideration, worship times of 9:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. were chosen. We will definitely utilize two services for the big launch on September 7th, and we may start them on August 24 so everyone has time to get comfortable with the different times before inviting all of their friends to the big launch on September 7! Don't worry, we'll keep you informed of the definite date for the service time change and make sure you have plenty of time to plan accordingly!
A Quick Note on Communications from New Life Church
All e-mails are also published to the "news" section of the New Life website at www.newlifechurchmo.org. They are automatically published from the website to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/newlifechurchmissouri). Sometimes seeing information on Facebook before receiving an e-mail directly sent to you seems a bit impersonal, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew the steps taken in sending out info. Thanks!
Do You Want to Share New Life with Others?
You may contact Kelly Dohm @ DohmsKGM@juno.com or 314-448-9231, if interested or any questions. The goal is to " kick off" Sunday School on Sept 7th and it will run through the end of May.
At this point, we will group the Sunday School Classes as follows. However, classes may be combined or separated once we get a better idea of who will be attending.
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our children and youth at New Life!
Current Prayer Requests
Pray for Pastor George and family as they vacation.
A request was submitted by Dorothy Wurmb for a very close fried who was in remission from pancreatic cancer. It has returned and the prognosis is not good. Dorothy is praying for a miracle and wants everyone we know to be praying for her. Her name is Donna Reed.
Pray for Karen Nye and all the youth that have returned from Young Life camp...that God will seal the work he has done and that Karen will get rest and be refreshed.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the bigger picture in the Middle East.
Pray for New Life Church as it gets established and grows...especially as we move to 2 services. Pray that God will bring forth His leaders and that we will all grow and mature in our faith so we can be better used by Him.
Lots of praise and thankfulness for all The Lord
is doing to birth and grow this church!
I believe the subject of beginning 2 services now would be an opportune time to ask the congregation their opinion by way of a vote. Allow us to voice our preference on this matter. We appreciate all the time and effort the leadership committee has given to New Life. But, I think the congregation should feel they have an intrinsic value to New Life, not only monetary.
