The Women’s Ministry of New Life endeavors to be a pillar of support for the church in its mission. It seeks to transform lives and glorify God by sharing the love of Jesus Christ with our families, the community, and the world.

Our Ministry Goals

  • Minister to women as women and encourage connections through intentional relationships.
  • Encourage the spiritual growth of the women in our church with an emphasis on Scripture and application of Scriptural principles to daily life.
  • Nurture the prayer lives of women in our church, praying for the life-changing work of God in and through us.
  • Provide an opportunity for each woman to discern and exercise her gifts and abilities to the glory of God in the total work and worship of the church.
  • Purposefully equip the women of New Life to serve as pillars of support to our church in its mission.

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. (Col. 3:18-19)

Scripture never justifies dictatorial rule by one spouse, nor does it require the abandonment of personal dignity by another. Despite the controversies of our age over Scripture’s instruction, the Bible’s marital instructions are rooted in its core message – we are to embrace Christ’s grace and extend it to others.

Hearts open to that core message will recognize that God neither commends nor commands selfishness. When the Prince of Heaven gave His life to rescue us from our sin, He taught the glory of selfless sacrifice.

Wives who submit their personal gifts to support their husbands, and husbands who sacrifice personal gain for the benefit of their wives are living the grace that Jesus died to reveal.

The Bible never defines love as using another for personal benefit, but as using one’s blessings to bless another despite their undeserving or past offense.

When we discover the grace that the God of all power and authority sacrificially extended to His loved ones, then we begin to discern our mission to reflect that same heart to our loved ones.

Prayer: Father, thank you for your gracious care through your Son, Jesus Christ. Help me today to turn away from selfishness, or from holding onto past offense, in order to display Jesus to my loved ones. Help me love as He loves me.

Small Groups

We strongly encourage our congregation to gather together in one of our several Small Groups. These groups meet at homes or in the church building. Each is led by someone familiar with leading a small group, and most groups are attended by a church Elder. These groups take time to study the Bible in various formats, pray together, and learn to love one another better. We are always looking to begin a new small group while others complete their natural cycle creating space for a new group.

The different Small Groups are listed at the church with the leaders’ phone numbers, or you may contact the church office by phone (724-744-4760) or email for further information.
