Hello NLF Church Family! Here’s what you need to know this week at NLF!
This Sunday, January 30th, there will be two services at 9:00 and 10:30 am.
There will be coffee and light refreshments between the two services.
The service will be live streamed on FaceBook and on the church website nlf-online.church during the 9:00 am service. It will be accessible on both Face Book and the New Life website if you prefer to watch the service at a later time.
Round Tables with Jesus:
Everyone is invited to join “Round Tables with Jesus”, a Bible study which meets from 9:30-10:15 am on Sunday mornings in the Meeting Place. Herman Yoder and Mark Sharick are leading this Bible study on the book of Romans. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with others and study God’s word together. For more information, please contact Herman Yoder or Mark Sharick.
Freezer Meal Ministry:
On Thursday, February 17th, beginning at 4:00 pm, New Life will have a freezer meal prep night! We will be preparing meals for foster families within our community, and we will also be preparing meals to have available to give to families within our own church family or within the community as needs arise. We need your help to accomplish this!
We will need donations of ingredients to put together the meals and we will need help in putting the meals together. There will be a sign-up sheet at the information table on Sunday with a list of items that will be needed for the meals, as well as a place to sign up to help prep the meals. If you have any questions, please contact Jasmin Miller.
World Missionary Press:
New Life has a group of individuals who help bind and box Scripture booklets at World Missionary Press (WMP) the first Thursday of every month. WMP is located in New Paris and publishes Scripture booklets in more than 335 languages for free distribution around the world as God provides the means. This is a wonderful opportunity to serve locally, with both local and global impact and outreach. If you are interested in helping or have any questions, please contact Jasmin Miller. The next day of service will be Thursday, February 3rd from 8:00 am until 11:30 am.
We will be having a welcome lunch on Sunday, Feb. 6th following the 10:30 am service. If you are newer to the New Life church family or would like to know more about the ministries of NLF, we invite you to come to this time of food and fellowship as the staff shares different ways to get involved and connected at New Life.

CPC Baby Bottle Drive:
Each year NLF supports the ministry of Compassion Pregnancy Center by participating in the annual baby bottle drive. We have baby bottles available in the foyer for you to take home, fill with change, and return by Sunday, Feb. 27th. Your loose change will allow Compassion Pregnancy Center to continue caring for mothers and babies, and in so doing, honor the sanctity of life. Thank you!
