1-Sun Adult Singles Life Group
Leader: Tom Price

Sign Up - Adult Singles Life Group
The Adult Singles Life Group has been in existence since the beginning of New Life's organized Life Groups ministry. Our group targets single adults 40-plus in age, whether never married, divorced, separated, or widowed, even though anyone of any age is welcome. We are not a Christian dating service, even though the Lord in the past has used New Life Singles to bring people together. We are not a "moan and groan" group, even though tears have shed during times of sharing. Many singles have experienced difficulties being a single adult in a married world, even in the church! 50.2% of Americans are single! The goal of the Adult Single Life Group is support & encourage one another, while becoming what God has created us to be!

Leader: Bob Brown

FULL GROUP AS OF 9/6/2020

Have you ever wished you understood the "Big Picture" of the Bible and not just a jumble of
stories you may have heard. Join Bob Brown for a fun, yet challenging Survey of the Bible. Bob
is a retired pastor and Navy Chaplain. He and his wife, Cindy have been members at New Life
for 3 years now. He serves on the Host Team as a Prayer Partner. He is the Chaplain for the
Marine Corps League detachment here in Gillette and is a volunteer at the Rockpile Museum.
Using the creative methods developed by Bruce Wilkinson of "Walk through the Bible" fame, get
a handle on the books, places, story, people and periods of the Old and New Testaments. This
course will help you put the Bible stories you learned in the larger context of whole Bible.
Anyone can memorize and master this course. You will be amazed at what you will learn! This
course will make a difference in your Bible reading and understanding. You'll also have the
opportunity to discuss what you're learning with other group members in a private group text.
We will meet at the Brown's home, 1661 Pathfinder Circle, GIllette on Tuesday evenings at 7:00
PM. Limited to the first 10 people.

Calling all couples that are new to New Life or haven't been in a Life Group yet! This is the group for you! We have been attending New Life for 7 years since we first moved to Gillette and have been in life groups since they started. We led a young families group for a few years then were in a outdoors life group the past couple of years. We have loved all of them and the friendships we have made through them!

Jason teaches P.E. at Meadowlark Elementary and coaches volleyball and soccer at Sage Valley. I teach Pre-K at John Paul II and our daughter will be a kindergartener there this fall. We also have a 6-month-old that we adopted from birth. Jason serves on the Worship team and on New Life's local board of administration. I serve on the Host Team and in KidZone. We love New Life and love Gillette and are excited to meet you and have you join us!

We are starting this group because we feel passionate about helping those new to Life Groups see what they're all about. New Life is a big church but quickly becomes family the more involved you are and Life Groups are an amazing way to get connected, grow deeper in your faith journey, and have intentional community around you. We will meet at the church and childcare will also be available.

Please reach out if you have any questions. We promise you this will be an inviting, fun, and great group to start out Life Groups with!

Hey, I'm Valerie and I am in 9th grade. I am homeschooled and a competitive dancer. I love ice skating, movies and talking with friends. I have been attending New Life for almost three years now. I also love going to New Life Youth. Sometimes I wish we had more time to talk in our small groups, so I thought that a life group would be a great way to spend more time together. My hope for this life group is that we can encourage each other in our walk of faith and grow closer to Jesus. If you're in ninth or tenth grade (and a girl), I hope you'll join me this Spring!

Do you have a loved one who struggles with alcoholism? Do you know what it's like to live through the daily ups and downs, the broken promises, the broken relationships and broken hearts that alcoholism causes? If this is you, I'm hoping to encourage you and share the hope and joy that I found in God through my own journey of loving a family member who struggles with alcohol addiction. This group is a safe space where we can talk and encourage each other.

There. Is. Hope. Always.

Hello! My name is Brittney Elsasser. I am a wife, mom, substitute teacher, college student, and Life group leader. Phew! I find that time for myself is something that I lack, but something I also strive for. This group is a place where women/moms can get together and spend some time on themselves through laughter, snacks, and heartfelt conversations. It is a place where you can get some one on one time with God and rediscover who you are and just what you are created for. God has big things planned for each and every one of you and I can't wait to share that experience with you. I am praying that this group will impact your life for the better like it has mine. So come join me Wednesday nights at the church! 🙂
