New Life News
One of the riches offered to us in Jesus is access to God in prayer.
When Jesus' disciples asked him to teach them how to pray he
responded with what we call "The Lord's Prayer". These words have
been recited billions of times by millions of Christians for two
thousand years. Our hope is all of us will also learn from Jesus how
to pray and know the joy of praying to our Father in Heaven.
"Every word of the Lord's Prayer reflects the Lord's vision of what our
lives should be - unified, all-embracing response to the love of
our heavenly Father, so that we seek his glory, trust his care, and obey
his word, every moment of every day." - J.I. Packer
If you are visiting today we are glad you are here! Whether you
come with questions and curiosity about Christianity or are looking
for a church to call home we would like to get to know
you. Come by the info desk in the lobby to get more information
about New Life, ways to get connected to our community, and to
learn more about the many opportunities to grow in your Christian
