Why A Week of Prayer? (Part 1)
On June 4-8 New Life Church will be having a week of prayer. We will gather at each of our three locations over the course of this week to seek God together (look for more info. in the coming days about the schedule). Maybe you are asking, why would a church do a week of prayer? Or, better yet, why should I be involved in my church's week of prayer? Let me give you three quick answers that I think will cover both of those questions:

  1. We pray because God tells us to. (Ephesians 6:18, Colossians 4:2, 1 Thessalonians 5:17)
  2. We pray because it is good for us. (Psalm 100, Philippians 4:6-7)
  3. We pray because it accomplishes God's work in the world. (John 14:12-14)
Would you take a moment right now and put "Week of Prayer" on your calendar for June 4-8, and plan to spend time with your church family in prayer that week?

Nathan Pylate's Ordination Service
Sunday, April 11, 2010 will be a big day for New Life Church and for Nathan Pylate. We are going to ordain him in an ordination service at the Robinwood Campus at 5:00pm.

Ordination, as practiced today, is a professional credential recognized by the broader community. It confirms that we recognize in him the gifts and calling that God has placed in his life that make him well-suited for gospel ministry.

I trust the service will be meaningful not just as an encouragement to Nathan, but also to the church as we recognize the additional demands and responsibilities on pastoral ministry. Just in case a service will not be sufficient encouragement, we will share a meal following the service as a time to celebrate!

Dr. Randy Roberts from Western Seminary will deliver the charge to the candidate. I will give the church a charge, an encouragement about what this kind of event means to a church.

I hope you can come and enjoy God's work in our church and in Pastor Nathan Pylate.
Good Friday Gatherings
New Life Church will have two gatherings this evening, one at 7:00 pm and one at 9:00 pm, to remember the death of our Lord. We will have a simple, sober time to reflect on Jesus' crucifixion.

Come be reminded of why the cross is so central to the Christian life. We'll remember Jesus, taking the Lord's Supper together and singing about the cross.

Both gatherings will be at the Riverfalls Campus. There will not be child care.

Christmas Eve Services

Global Outreach Sunday
This Sunday is Global Outreach Sunday at New Life Church. Stephanie Rogers (daughter of Wes and Shelley Rogers) will be sharing a brief testimony in each of our morning services and at length during the evening service. Stephanie is planning to go out as a missionary with Josiah Venture to Slovenia in January, and is in the process of raising support.
