Upcoming Events

Voter's Assembly Set
A voter's assembly has been scheduled for Sunday, October 16.  It will begin at 9:15 a.m., between worship services.

The assembly is being called to vote on a budget for repairs to the property at 4615 West Arrowhead Road.  Repair work is unable to begin until a budget is determined.


OCC Packing Party Scheduled
Get your calendars marked for the Operation Christmas Child packing party.  This is an annual event at New Life where members come together and pack shoeboxes full of assorted items for children.  The boxes are sent to a regional center before being shipped overseas.  OCC is a project of Samaritan's Purse.

Empty shoeboxes will be available at New Life in the next few weeks.  In addition, a collection bin will be established for members who prefer to donate items rather than pack a shoebox.
Saturday, November 12


Class on the Koran Planned
New Life plans to offer an exciting new class later this fall, "Christians Read the Koran."  This will be a 5-week course, with a stand-alone introductory session.  The class will be taught by Pastor David and Dick LeMaster.

Topics slated for discussion are the Lord's Prayer and the Koran, the patriarchs and prophets, Jihad and Ummah, the forgiveness of sin, and this world and the next.

Watch this space for class dates and registration information.
