Special Guests Coming This Sunday, July 17th:
This Sunday July 17th, in both the 9:00 and 10:30 worship services we are excited to welcome Andy Collins, Executive Director of the Elkhart campus of Adult & Teen Challenge. The mission of this organization is to provide adult men an effective and comprehensive faith-based solution to life controlling problems in order that they may become productive members of society. Andy will be bringing several men who have been impacted by this ministry. You will not want to miss hearing them share how Jesus is changing lives in our communities! Following our 10:30am service we will be hosting the team for a carry-in meal. We invite NLF to bring a dish and share in this meal together. NLF will provide the meat and drink. Last names A-M please bring a side or salad; Last names N-Z please bring a dessert. 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.
