Many people would say that's the sound of a church service on any typical Sunday morning. Deadly boring... soapy platitudes... hypocritical denunciations... prudish warnings against anything real and deeply pleasurable... ranks of drowsy worshipers putting in their mandatory time in "God's house" before being released once more to life outside the dim stained glass, behind which they comfortably deposit most of their religion until the next weekend.

If that's Christianity, who wants it?

On the contrary, Christianity is a face-to-face reunion with God. Visit our "Eyewitnesses" section to read how Jesus Christ is wonderfully alive and busy in the world today, bringing people to life. As people believe in him and open their hearts and lives to him, they find that he is undeniably real, powerful, and good. Our earnest hope is that you also will become an eyewitness of his majesty.

Undivided Attention


One of our children had the teacher all to herself at a recent Sunday school class at New Life! Actually, another girl arrived after this photo. They learned, in the book of Genesis, about the garden of Eden, how God instructed Adam and Eve to tend and keep the garden and take care of the animals, and how God also instructs us to take care of our own plants, animals, and other responsibilities.

Potential New Life Member?


A visitor was discovered in the corner of the New Life building “carport” this morning. One of our members captured him with his phone camera. Mr. Owl posed long enough after the morning service for another member to get a closer shot before he wooshed away. Maybe he’ll come back to offer lessons about the birds of the air and “hoo” provides their food and beautiful raiment.
