Upcoming Events

New Life Moves; Installs Second Pastor
The day so many have waited for is now in sight: the move to a permanent facility.  Last summer, New Life purchased the church building at 4615 West Arrowhead Road, formerly owned by Northern City Baptist.  Painting and renovations have been completed and pastor's office was officially moved in November.

The first service in the new facility will be Sunday, December 11.  There will be one celebratory service at 9 a.m.  

In addition, Arndt Braaten will be installed at the service as Pastor of Faith and Health.  

Last Worship at GPM Set for December 4
It was six years ago last August when New Life held its first worship service at GPM, Inc.  The generosity of Pete and Judie Gemuenden in offering the space to New Life will be publicly recognized during the final service at 9 a.m., December 4.  There will be fellowship time following the service, and then all hands are welcome to help move all remaining items to New Life's new space on Arrowhead Road.

The Magnificat, An Advent Study
This study is back for the fifth consecutive year.  Only an evening session will be held this year, and the location has moved to the Kitchi Gammi Club.  If you have not yet experienced this study, put it on your calendar for this year!

This three-session study features Martin Luther’s spiritual classic, Commentary on the Magnificat, and Johann Sebastian Bach’s musical masterpiece, Magnificat. Permission has been granted to show a performance of the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir during the 2003 Bachfest Leipzig in the Church of St. Thomas.

The study is $20/person or $30/couple, which includes a copy of the book, Luther and Bach on the Magnificat: For Advent and Christmas; other study materials; and light refreshments.  The study is taught by Rev. Brad Jenson, Pastor Emeritus and Rev. David Norland.
