Welcome to 2019!


1st Thursday CONNECT

We’re starting the new year with a birthday party! We’ve just celebrated Jesus’ birth. It’s the birth of a new year. If the Lord wills, we will each celebrate another birthday this year. So, we’re going celebrate! We will also be focusing on how we can connect with the missionary women that New Life Church supports, on their birthdays and beyond. Our teaching time will be from the book of Luke, a perfect way to wrap up Jesus’ birthday. 1st Thursday CONNECT is January 3, 6:30-8:30 PM, at New Life Church, dinner provided. If possible, let us know you are coming by emailing or by signing up on our Facebook event.

One-to-One Bible Reading will be in the book of Joshua for January. We will kick it off with a brief orientation to the book at 1st Thursday CONNECT. One of the best parts of One-to-One reading is getting to know another woman and conferring over God’s Word. What is the purpose of the passage? What does it mean to us today? What difference will it make in my life? So, who could you partner with this month? A few simple meetings could make a big difference. Think about it, pray about it, and ask someone.

If you miss Thursday, extra resources will be available in the church lobby and on the website.


New Books

What a sweet time we had at Share the Joy in December! The treats, the art work, the Advent readings and booklet, cute crafts, warm conversations—it was a joy to be together and begin to prepare our hearts for Christmas. Highlighted at Share the Joy were several books that are now available to be checked out of the church library, perfect for a winter read. Enjoy!
