Life Groups

Join a life group

At New Life, we believe that life is better connected and that circles are better than rows. We encourage everyone to be part of a Life Group circle throughout the week and we offer a large variety of groups. 

The Fall Life Group semester begins the week of October 11th.

If you have any questions please contact Karen Baughman.

1-Sun Adult Singles Life Group  
Leader: Carl Campbell

Sign Up - Adult Singles Life Group
The Adult Singles Life Group is primarily for single adults, whether divorced, widowed, separated, or never-married. This group has been functioning since New Life started its formal life groups ministry. Because you are single, you may feel you do not "fit in" the church. However, Many of the early church leaders, including Jesus, were single. Most members in the past have been 39-plus in age, even though anyone is welcome. We are not a Christian dating service! We are not a "moan & groan" group! Christian singles will find acceptance, ministry, encouragement, fellowship, laughter, & food in the Adult Christian Life Group! Tom Price (widowed) & Carl Campbell (never married) are the group's co-leaders. According to Barna Trends, less than a quarter of the average church is single, while over 40% of the average community is single. Our goal is to reach & minister to that often overlooked population!

Leader: Roy Wilson

Sign Up - Bible from a Historical Perspective
For you older ones such as me, our generation has done an immeasurable amount of work marrying our Bible with archaeological and secular history. It is amazing how much history and archaeology substantiates what we already believe is a book that is holy, accurate and straight to us from God. We will be spending time looking at history and archaeology as we review many passages of God's Word. It will be an exciting journey. Come join us!

Learn how to move on when the other person refuses to change and never says they're sorry. Walk through a step-by-step process to free yourself from the hurt of your past and feel less offended today. Discover what the Bible really says about forgiveness and the peace that comes from living it out right now.

My name is Travis Tate, married to Audrea with 3 kids, Dylan, Lily and Natalie. I am the Field Service supervisor for Summit ESP, an oilfield service company. During my recent spiritual journey of discovering a relationship with god and the true calling of being a "man", it has become apparent to me that I was a not alone in the struggles it takes to stay being a man in gods eyes. This group will be for the men who want help/encouragement in staying true and authentic to being a man when called out or during times of struggles. This will be a group where input from all who attend will only help all of us become better men and great Christian leaders for ourselves, wives, kids, friends, employees, coworkers and random people we interact with on a daily basis. I look forward to seeing you there.

Each week we'll take a different New-Testament Bible book, watch a short video that gives us the context for why the book was written, & skim through the book together discussing how to connect its wisdom to our life, home, relationships, and work.

We are a group of women who spend a lot of our time ensuring our children are able to live their best lives. Sometimes we get so busy being moms, it's nice to have this group to spend time with. I am a mom of three, Tanner (14), Triston (12), and Ava (6). My husband is a coal miner. And while the his are long, I'm so grateful he's a team player, because this raising kids business cannot be done alone! I love being outdoors, crafting, cooking, and spending time with friends and family. I also love to serve and currently do so in NL Kids & NL Kids Jr.
