Child and Youth Worker Training and Appreciation Luncheon was a success!

At New Life Church, we prioritize the safety of our children and youth, which is why child safety training is mandatory for all workers. Thank you to all the workers who serve our children and youth and attended the annual child safety training on Sunday, October 9th. This year the event also included an appreciation luncheon to acknowledge the dedication of our workers. Cupcakes, like the one pictured above, were prepared by Dustin Hannifan. Several gentlemen, including members of our Elder team, served lunch to the guests at their tables. Childcare was provided by the pastoral staff, pictured above.

Darcey Philpot and Kristen Van Tuyl led the training sessions and two guest speakers from The Children's Center addressed the group. Twice as many workers attended the training this year than attended last year. A make-up session is scheduled for October 23rd.

(Thank you, Elaine Hochstettler and Rose Miller, for providing the photos.)

New Life Church to Celebrate 70 Years!

New Life Church will celebrate our 70th anniversary with a picnic dinner on Saturday, June 11th at 5:00 p.m. at Hammerle Park in West Linn. Hamburgers and hotdogs, drinks, and tableware will be provided, along with strawberry shortcake for dessert. Guests should bring a side dish or salad, and a lawn chair. It will be a time to reflect on our church family and how far God has taken us, and look forward to what the Lord is going to do through us.

Update! These are the needs of the Ignite Summer Mission team:

1. Prayer- we need prayer partners. There are already 50 kids signed up for Sports Camp, so we are expecting record numbers. Pray for good outdoor weather!

2. Scholarships- we have already received two $50 scholarships, but we still need $200 for four more. The cost of the trip is $150/student, and without fundraising this year we need some help.

3. H20 outreach- We have received $40 so far toward a goal of $500. The money will be used for H20 bags and other supplies as we minister to the needy.

4. Dinners- Thank you to the Men’s Leadership ministry for volunteering to feed us on Sunday night! We will be ready to Bocci! We need groups/ministries/ families to provide dinners for Monday-Wednesday (June 20-22). It will be great fun to feed some hungry teenager, and spend time listening to stories of what God is doing. You are invited to come use our kitchen at camp, or we can come to your place.

If you can help, or if you have questions, please contact Josh Hochstettler or Dave Nizic: or

*The poor (in spirit) snail has no arms and needs help, reminding us of our poverty of spirit and need for a savior. We are serving on mission not out of our strength, but out of our brokenness before the Holy God.
