New Life Worship
New Life Worship is a staple of our ministry. For the past 16 years this ministry has been under the leadership of Pastor Alex Fleniken. The mission of our worship experience is to be holy spirit lead, and to foster an environment of a kingdom culture not a common culture. We are proud of the spirit of freedom that reins in our worship experience. Our style is described as loud and contemporary.
If you are a musician or singer that in interested in serving in worship, please reach out to Pastor Alex Fleniken personally or through email at email@example.com.
The mission of the VINE is to make Christ the center of our lives, to go out and make disciples, and to love them like Jesus has loved us.
Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
Our mission for NL KIDS is simple :: To establish a firm foundation in Christ through teaching The Word, giving children a solid foundation to stand on at every age, in every season of their lives.
NL KIDS is ages 3 through 5th grade. We create age relevant teaching environments using a curriculum that teaches the truths from the Bible. We want our kids to be able to talk to their parents each week about what they have learned, and always be able to recognize and display God’s Love at all times in their lives.
When you arrive at New Life, we all gather together at 10am for worship. Directly after worship kids are dismissed to KIDS CHURCH, where we then break into our small groups of age appropriate classes. Our Littles class is ages 3 -5, while our Bigs class is Kindergarten through 5th grade. Every week is packed full of FUN, WORSHIP, BIBLE TEACHINGS, AND JESUS!
Our prayer ministry is led by Gaye Standridge, an intercessor with a legacy at New Life known for believing, powerful prayer.

The power of prayer deepens our dependance on him and sharpness our faith. When we pray we choose to put everything in God’s hand knowing that His hand will show up in every aspect of our lives and in those around us.
