Stories

Why Do We Tell Stories?

Stories bring honor and glory to Jesus Christ.

God is at work all around us and we can give him praise when we highlight all that He is up to. We do everything we can to let the church and the rest of the world in on the great things God is accomplishing, which deepens our worship of him through that knowledge.

Stories encourage the saints.

As our eyes are opened to what God is doing around us, we are encouraged to take our eyes off ourselves and put our focus on God and His work. We are encouraged to press on in the midst of disheartening circumstances, suffering and trials and daily discouragements. We are given the gift of hope as we remember the God we serve, the One who keeps His promises and is fulfilling His redemption story right in our midst.

Stories exhort our people to action.

Stories can be used to move in the hearts and actions of our body of believers as the Holy Spirit works in them to give them courage to embrace mission, step out in faith, and to believe God can use them. Stories remind us that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

“Hospitality isn’t about your house. It’s about your heart.” I saw this quote a long time ago but don’t remember the source so, unfortunately, I can’t give credit where credit is due. It means that your house doesn’t have to be perfect. I get that. But...

Posted by Kendra Duty on

At New Life, we’ve been especially gifted to receive a bounty of young adults, freshly out on their own. Many feel a sense of loneliness being away from home, either temporarily as they study at college, or truly “adulting” for the first time in the professional world. Could...

Jesus' Enduring Pursuit of the Kumars

Posted by Brooke B. on

As you enter the home of Vijay and Ria Kumar you quickly notice a beautiful fireplace mantle with Bible scripture decorations surrounding a wooden cross. If you had entered the same home two years ago, the scene would have been dramatically different. Two years ago, the mantle was covered in...

10 Things About Prayer

Posted by Gwen Hattaway on

The Preserve

Posted by New Life on

The excitement felt in the Preserve this morning was evident to all. But the enthusiasm that breathed life into the previously empty hallways was not just because the space is new or well decorated, it was a celebration of our faithful God who supplies our needs so abundantly.  In the...

Receiving the Gift of Friendship

Posted by Brooke Bullinger on

“Christian brotherhood is not an ideal which we must realize, it is rather a reality created by God in Christ in which we may participate.” This is how Dietrich Bonhoeffer describes friendship in his well-known book, Life Together. Friendship between believers is God’s idea...

Needed & Known, No Matter Your Age

Posted by Gwen Hattaway on

Prejudices and discrimination happen in the most unlikely places. And, they’re not all based on skin color. Why is it that people in their 40s or older are hesitant or unwilling to join a church that primarily has college students? New Life not only wants older members, they're...
