Small Groups at New Life meet 2 to 3 times a year for 6 to 10 weeks per time.
New Life Small Groups encourage connecting with God and building friendships with each other; through prayer, worship and interactive Bible Study.
Real encouragement takes place within small groups as people help meet one another’s practical, relational and emotional needs.
Small groups help foster a loving environment where people can open up with their lives; where they are safe from judgment, rejection, and fear of gossip. It is a safe place where truth can be spoken in the context of genuine Christian love.
In reaching out, small group participants pray and work together to help others come to know and be built up in Jesus Christ.
At New Life, we place a strong value on seeking God in prayer because the Lord, Himself, teaches us to relate to Him in prayer: “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”–Hebrews 4:16 NLT
Through the years we have seen the Lord meet us in prayer and answer the requests we have brought to Him. We have multiple prayer groups that meet throughout the week to provide opportunity for God’s people to unite to seek the Lord and His will together in relation to our needs.
Out of our deep thankfulness to God for rescuing us out of our sin and brokenness through faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we want to help others discover the good news of Jesus Christ too!
We seek to live out what the Apostle Paul wrote, “And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 2 Corinthians 5:19,20 NLT
In light of this, New Life has teams that reach out to those in Jail, new people moving to the surrounding neighborhoods, and periodic special event outreaches. New Life also encourages prayerful, loving outreach to family, friends, co-workers and neighbors.
