NLF Family Work Day:

All men and women and families are invited to meet at the church and then go into the community to help do fall/winter lawn care and clean up for several families and elderly individuals in the NLF church family.

It’s Time to Pray!
We had a wonderful time of prayer on Wednesday night! We will continue to meet for prayer on Wednesday, November 10th & 17th, from 6:15-7:15pm in the sanctuary.  Let’s continue to seek God’s leadership and give the Holy Spirit space to guide us in our next steps here at New Life Fellowship. If you were unable to come the first week, we would still love to have you join us for the remaining nights of prayer.

Celebration Sunday:
In response to our 3 weeks of prayer, on Sunday November 21st we will have one worship service at 10:30am, followed by an all-church lunch to celebrate God’s faithfulness to New Life! Leadership from Nappanee Missionary Church will join us to celebrate God’s answers to prayer in establishing New Life Fellowship Church and our opportunity to be debt free!

Nursing Home Outreach:
During the past year, New Life has provided gifts of encouragement to the residents and staff of area nursing homes. We want each resident and staff member to know that they are thought of and prayed for and loved. This past week, we delivered fall themed sun-catchers for each of the residents, along with a basket of fruit for the staff.  A HUGE THANK YOU to our Preteens and Youth who helped paint them! We were able to deliver a total of 285! Thank you for all who helped with this project.  It is such a blessing to be able to provide residents and staff with a gift of encouragement.

Adopt-a-Family Christmas Project:
The New Life Missions team is partnering with Westview Schools again this year to sponsor families in need at Christmas time. If you, your family, your small group, or any group of friends are interested in sponsoring a family this year, please text Michelle Sharick.

Operation Christmas Child:
Don’t forget to bring your Operation Christmas Child boxes back to the church by Sunday November 14th. Please include $9.00 shipping in an envelope inside your box (cash or check made out to Samaritan’s Purse). You may also track your box by scanning the QR code on the label. If you have questions about this project, please contact Cathy Frey.

Volunteer Appreciation Open House:
On Wednesday, November 17th, from 3:30-6:30pm, the NLF staff will be hosting a Volunteer Appreciation Open House in the New Life Cafe. If you have volunteered in any capacity at New Life during this past year, we invite you to come and enjoy a time of food and fellowship in your honor! NLF could not function without our many volunteers! Please come so we can honor you and express our appreciation for your service!
