New to NewLife Church?

You might be wondering, what's it really like at NewLife Church? Simply stated, We focus on grace and truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. You won't be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. And we don't care how you're dressed or what candidate you voted for. Our church is made up of imperfect people with every kind of story imaginable.

We value your privacy and would never spam you (we're cool like that). :)

Want to know the best part? No matter what you've been through or what questions you might have about God and faith, our church is a place where you'll find the love, grace, and forgiveness that Jesus gives (and wants us to give) to everyone.

Our hope is that each person comes to:

  • Know Jesus
  • Find Community
  • Discover Purpose
  • Live the Mission

  • Plan A Visit

    What to expect upon your first visit to NewLife - Service times, directions, culture and more

    Getting to know each other

    We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at NewLife Church a great one!


    NewLife Church meets every weekend and offers two identical services in-person and one live service online:

    • Sundays at 9:00am | 10:45am — In-Person
    • Sundays at 9:00am — Online Livestream

    What can I expect?


    In total, a NewLife Church service is about 60 minutes in length. Services begin with the NewLife worship team leading the church in music – song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, one of our pastors will come out to share a message rooted in scripture. We strive to have every service seasoned with grace and truth. We hope that you leave with something practical each week that helps you apply faith to your everyday life.


    Sunday’s at NewLife are encouragingcasual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.


    We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week – and at NewLife, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our NewLife Student program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the NewLife Student experience. NewLife Kids is offered at every Church service for kids ages infant through Grade 5.

    Our Hope


    That they would engage “The Big Four.” Our hope is that each person would know Jesus and the fullness of assured salvation in Him alone, find community in a life-giving small group, discover purpose in service with their God-given gifts through our Discover Class & other opportunities, and that they would live the mission of Jesus outside the walls of our church more and more everyday.

    1. Know Jesus
    2. Find Community
    3. Discover Purpose
    4. Live the Mission

    We believe in these 4 things so much that we want you to know, regardless if you land with us as your “church home,” we still want these things for you.

    Learn more about these four things that are driven by our Mission & Vision!
