In 2016, New Life Church committed to be in the Word daily as we began Year of the Bible. We were in the Word together and so were unified as one family more than we’ve ever been.
We believe the Lord blessed that unity by adding to our church. This report is a reflection of God’s faithfulness to the vision He gave us of spreading across Arkansas to reach people with the hope of Christ! With the launch of the Greenbrier campus, Cabot’s grand opening, celebrating our future New Life campus pastors, and coming together for Prayer714, we can’t wait to see where the Lord takes our church in 2017.
We are so thankful for your partnership! As we look forward to this year, we’re believing that more people will find their place in Christ and at a New Life Church home.
We love you, New Life!
