What you can expect from us:

To be greeted at the front door.
We want to make you feel welcome and that begins with "Hello!", "Good Morning!" and "How are you!?"

Children's classes run parallel with preaching time.
We want children to get as much out of church as you do! That's why we offer children's Sunday school classes at the same time as the preaching time. It makes it easier for everyone to enjoy the teaching time.

Contemporary Praise & Worship
We want our worship to be a time of praising God. We work hard to create an atmosphere where people feel comfortable to express their heart with freedom. We often clap, raise our hands and, in general, respond in gratitude to God’s mercy, grace and goodness. We just want to love out loud for Jesus! And don't be surprised if you hear a song or two from the radio!

Communion offered on a weekly basis.
Communion is the time we set aside each Sunday to stop and reflect on Jesus and the gift He freely gave when He died on the cross. That gift is the forgiveness of our sins because of His sacrifice. Communion is available to all believers who have gathered with us to honor Jesus.

"Do this in remembrance of me." Luke 22:19

There are two options for taking the Lord’s Supper each Sunday. One is to join others (family or friends) at a small table. The other is to come to the front and be served individually by one of our Shepherding Couples.

Baptism
We believe baptism is how we “go public” for Jesus.  The Bible teaches that when you’re ready to accept Jesus’ free gift of grace, you’ll want to change the way you live, ask Him to forgive you of your sins and to become the leader of your life.  Your response is celebrated in the act of baptism, which is being immersed in water.  This is a symbol of dying to your old way of living and being reborn to a new life, cleansed and pure.  Romans 6:1-4; Acts 2:38.
If you have further questions about baptism, please call the church office at 432-272-5556 and someone will be happy to answer your questions.  

 

 

Do I have to wear "Church clothes?"
We care more about meeting your real life needs than with what you wear. At New Life, it's not about the clothes that you wear to church, it's about bringing a heart and an attitude that says, "Lord, I'm ready to listen."  We offer a casual and relaxed atmosphere, so just come dressed however you feel comfortable.  That means jeans are fine.  No need to wear a tie, unless you want to.  We want to meet YOU, not the person that made your sweater.

We want to share the experience of encouraging messages, great music, fun kids' activities and the casual, friendly atmosphere here at New Life.  We look forward to meeting you this weekend!
