New Life Fellowship | Topeka, IN

August 11, 2022


This Sunday is our Outdoor Baptism Service! There will be one service at 10:30 am.
Following the morning service, we will have lunch together by the pond. NLF will provide the meat and drink; please bring a dish to share in this meal together.  Last names A-M please bring a dessert; Last names N-Z please bring a salad. Please bring your own lawn chairs.  In case of inclement weather, the service and lunch will be moved indoors.

Mission Opportunity/School and Craft Supplies Needed:
Renee Helmkamp, one of the missionaries New Life supports, is asking for much needed school and craft supplies for students at Genesis.  Renee serves with Students International in the Dominican Republic at Genesis, a school which provides care for children with special needs. There will be a sign up at the Info Desk with a list of items needed.  Let’s come along beside Renee and help provide the students and staff at Genesis with much needed supplies! Contact Jasmin Miller if you have any questions.  Thanks New Life!

Sit With Me Ladies Event:
Plan to join the women of NLF on Thursday evening, August 25th at 7:00 pm for a fun, interactive discussion about what may be holding you back from developing strong relationships with other women. Lena Morris will be our special speaker. You won’t want to miss this event! Invite a friend and join us August 25th! Sign up at the Women’s Ministry desk.

Freezer Meal Ministry:
A big thank you to all who helped provide food donations and those who helped prepare freezer meals on Monday, August 8th. A total of 42 casseroles, along with several single serving meals were prepared! These meals will be a blessing to not only foster families, but those within our own church family and local community.  Thank you New Life!
