New Life Church thrives when people just like you invest their time and energy in serving others. No matter your skill level or experience, there is a place for you to make a difference at NLC. Not only does joining a Serve Group help others connect with God, but we believe it is a great way to get plugged in, meet new people, and build relationships within the church family.

We really believe that finding your purpose in life is connected to finding your place in God's church.
