Meeting inside at New Life
What are we expecting in light of the COVID-19 Pandemic?
We want you to know what we are doing.
We want you to know that we are going to be meeting inside the large worship center on Wednesday nights. Masks are mandated to be worn at all times while in the building. We will serve pre-packaged snacks outside. Students must eat snacks outside and cannot bring snacks into the building. Social distancing and regular hand washing/sanitizing are strongly encouraged. We are also asking students who have a fever, cold-like symptoms, or have recently been in contact with someone who is sick to remain at home.
We want to know your concerns.
Thank you so much to those who have already spoken to us about your concerns for safety and health. If your student has mask anxiety, please let us know!
We want the students to practice respectful communication.
We want students to ask "May I give you a hug?", "Am I sitting too close?" We want to respect that each family has different comfort levels. Some are ok with hugs, others want to keep things 6 feet apart. Students should feel comfortable speaking out about their personal boundaries without fear of teasing.
Disclaimer: Where there are people, there are germs.
We will do our best to encourage students to practice healthy habits, but by allowing your student to attend an in person gathering please understand they will be with others.
Dangers of Pornography
On this night we split into smaller groups by grade and gender to discuss the harm pornography does to our brains, relationships, and spiritual walk. We believe this is a very important subject that should be talked about, especially from a Biblical perspective. We understand that not every family is ready for this discussion and you have the option to keep your student at home for this message.
Scripture: Matthew 5:29

What is the Lord calling you to? What does it mean to have a calling?
Perhaps, it most important to learn how to discern the voice of the Holy Spirit as He guides you through life. Most of us don't have one grand calling for our entire life, but we should listen to God and know what we should be focused on right now.
March 31st and April 7th
We want to support you as you disciple your teens!
Have you been able to talk to your teens about pornography?
Sexually explicit images and stories are everywhere. They are easier to access now than ever before. And this is no longer just a "guy thing". More and more young ladies are becoming addicted to pornography.
