One Pure and Holy Passion Children Dismissed Jesus, All For Jesus Sermon: “Your Will Be Done “, Joshua Earman, preaching There is a Redeemer Benediction Please silence your cellular phones during the service. Welcome New Life News Announcements Welcome! 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 life.
