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

Join the Wednesday Morning Group

All are invited to New Life’s Wednesday Morning Group for Holy Conversation at 10:30 am in the church parlor. The group is currently reading Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People. Here is how Amazon describes the book:
“What if that person you’ve been trying to avoid is your best shot at grace today?
…And what if that’s the point?

In Accidental Saints, New York Times best-selling au­thor Nadia Bolz-Weber invites readers into a surprising encounter with what she calls “a religious but not-so-spiritual life.” Tattooed, angry and profane, this former standup comic turned pastor stubbornly, sometimes hilariously, resists the God she feels called to serve. But God keeps showing up in the least likely of people—a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, a felonious Bishop and a gun-toting member of the NRA.As she lives and worships alongside these “accidental saints,” Nadia is swept into first-hand encounters with grace—a gift that feels to her less like being wrapped in a warm blanket and more like being hit with a blunt instrument. But by this grace, people are transformed in ways they couldn’t have been on their own.

In a time when many have rightly become disillusioned with Christianity, Accidental Saints demonstrates what happens when ordinary people share bread and wine, struggle with scripture together, and tell each other the truth about their real lives. This unforgettable account of their faltering steps toward wholeness will ring true for believer and skeptic alike.”

The New Life Wednesday Morning Group begins with sharing prayer concerns. After the book discussion, those concerns become the intercessions of group Noonday prayers. Following the morning’s activities, many group members enjoy lunch together at a local restaurant.
We would love to have you join us for all or part of our fellowship, prayers, study, and food!
