New Life Fellowship | Topeka, IN

January 28, 2021


This Sunday, Jan. 31st, there will be two services at 9:00 am and 10:30 am. This is a 5th Sunday and we will have a special time of fellowship between the two services. There will be coffee, donuts, and pretzels served from 10:05-10:30 AM. Pastor Drew will continue teaching his sermon series, “New Mercies” and we will celebrate communion together during both services. There will be nursery & toddler care and children’s programming for all ages during the second service. If you prefer, you may attend the first service and sit together as a family. The service will be live streamed during the 9:00 am service. It will be posted on Face Book if you prefer to watch the service at a later time.

Report on Attendance:
We are happy to report that our services are filling back up! Attendance is running 275-280 between the two services and is over 300 with our on-line viewers! Kids Country is active and growing as well with an average of 50-60 children and volunteers. If you have not been attending in-person we miss you and hope to see you soon!

Connect Ministry Winter Retreat:
We are excited to announce that there will be a winter retreat for our preteens (grades 4th-6th) on March 5-7. The retreat will take place at the Prairie Camp Retreat Center (Goshen, IN) and the cost is $25 for the entire weekend. Please register your child by February 14th. If you have questions, you may contact our Preteen Director, Kerin Miller.

CPC Baby Bottle Drive:
Compassion Pregnancy Center’s annual baby bottle drive has begun. Baby bottles are available in the foyer for you to take home, fill with change, and return by Sunday, Feb. 28th. 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!
