Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here!

School Ingathering Blessing is August 13

The first day of school for most Lake Local students is August 17. (Kindergarten students begin the following week.) Lake schools are beginning the school year early, although their start date is not the earliest in the county.

One of New Life’s outreach projects is collecting school supplies for the children. Many stores have sales on school supplies at good prices during the Summer. We can take advantage of that and gather supplies to help families that cannot afford to buy all the supplies their children need.

The School Ingathering takes place at the church service on August 13. We will ask God to bless the school supplies, the children and their families, and the adults who work with them. The supplies will be delivered to the schools in the following days.
