MINISTRIES

Our pastoral staff has the great privilege of leading an incredibly gifted and committed team of volunteers – real people like you.   As you get to know them you will be touched by their love, passion, vision and desire to make a difference.

Please contact us  for more information about our ministries.

MINISTRIES OVERVIEW

Women

Real Women.  Changed Lives.  Amazing God.

"I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God.”   Colossians 2:2

Our women's ministry is called WOVEN and stands for Women Of Victory Experiencing Newness. 

WOVEN is women loving, valuing and growing together in healthy relationships; creating an environment of encouragement, kindness and compassion; a place where each one can find her significance and fruitfulness in the family of God.

Our church is filled with women of all ages, with diverse passions and in different seasons of life. We grow together, learn together and laugh together.  We hold a variety of events throughout the year that are designed to help you meet friends, grow spiritually and connect to God on a deeper level. We'd love to have you join us!

Events

Our second Tuesday of the month WOVEN meetings provide a wonderful opportunity to meet and connect with other women in a relaxed setting. These fun-filled meetings are spiritually inspirational and encouraging. All women and young women are warmly welcomed!  Please check our events page for more info.  

There are also small Growth Groups where we study the Bible together and support one another through real life issues. For more information see our church calendar or contact the church office. 

Our spring “You Are Loved” daytime conference is designed to refresh and renew women. Some comments from past conference attendees are: “God has impacted me. I feel like a new person who is blossoming like a flower.” “I am walking away from this day knowing that I am God’s child. This has been so powerful and affirming.”

 

In September we offer our Fall Retreat – a weekend away planned just for you. Through teaching and workshops, hearing other women’s stories, worshipping together, and quiet time for reflection, we discover more fully our true identity in Christ. Of course, we include time for fun activities like our Friday night “Pajama Party”, bonfires, a sauna, kayaking, walking the beach or wooded trails, or simply resting in the beauty of our surroundings. It is an amazing weekend!

The Men of New Life

The men at New Life are committed to helping men learn about manhood and to become better men.

 Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13

Our goals are to:

  • Unite and encourage men, young and old, to develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and with one another.

  • Mentor the young men by serving as godly role models and showing what it means to be a Christian man.

  • To strengthen marriages, family and our community by strengthening the men.
     

The Man Class

This monthly class meets on the 4th Thursday from 6:30 - 8 pm.  It is a great time to connect with other men and be encouraged.  You will hear real stories from men like you, whose lives have been radically changed by Jesus.  Please check our events page for more info.  

 

Men’s Fraternity

One way we work toward attaining our goals is through Men’s Fraternity, an internationally known men’s ministry which is designed to help men come together and strengthen each other through weekly sessions, combining relevant biblical teaching with small group interaction.  Please check our events page for more info.  

These "Four Ideals of an Authentic Man" are adapted from the Men's Fraternity by Robert Lewis:

  • He rejects social and spiritual passivity

  • He accepts responsibility

  • He leads courageously in his family, job, and community

  • He serves, not only for an earthly reward, but expecting God's greater reward

Worship

I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done. I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High. Psalm 9:1-2

Worship at New Life is more than just about singing songs - it is an opportunity to express praise, thanksgiving and love to God and to experience the refreshing of our spirits as we encounter Jesus Christ in a deeper way.  Our Sunday morning worship time is uplifting, soul-stirring, and God centered – it empowers us to live out our relationship with God throughout the week, because we believe that worship is also about how we live when we leave the church building, how we share His love and light in our everyday lives. 

The Care and Outreach Team

Love must be sincere...Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.  Romans 12:9, 10

This team provides practical and spiritual care to our church members and visitors, and also reaches out to extended families and the community.  Through home or hospital visits, phone calls and the meeting of other needs the love of God is lived out one person at a time. 

Marriage

Marriage should be honored by all...  Hebrews 13:4

No matter if you are engaged, are newlywed, or have been married for a while, we are here to help you grow together as a couple.  If you are looking for a fun night out with your spouse, our team plans a quarterly date night event that is designed to motivate, encourage, and inspire you in your marriage.

New Life also offers various workshops and resources, and mentoring as needed, to empower you and strengthen your marriage relationship.    

Parenting Support

Bring your children up in the training and instruction of the Lord.  Ephesians 6:4

There is no such thing as a perfect parent, so take the pressure off of yourself! We want to partner with and equip you as the primary spiritual influencers in your children’s lives.  We offer parenting classes and other resources to help you have a healthy spiritual impact in the lives of your children and to fulfill you God ordained responsibility to teach and train them in the ways of God.
