Church is more than a Sunday service. It’s people walking in The Spirit, living out life together for The Lord Jesus Christ, reaching out and serving one another and our community in Christian love. LifeGroups consist in small, vibrant gatherings of the greater New Life spiritual family, meeting regularly in North Country private residences or at the church, from September through May each year. Check out the many different LifeGroups here at New Life Christian Church!  And thank you for visiting the official church website at:
