Ministries of New Life

All of these ministries help in New Life’s mission to have people come as they are and become who God created them to be.

New Life Kids

New Life has an intense passion to engage children with biblical truth in an environment that is fun, safe, and effective. Our extraordinary children’s volunteers, leadership, and facilities prove New Life will spare no expense or effort to attract and teach kids about Jesus. Please visit Plugged In and “Sign Up” to expedite the check-in process for your children on Sunday morning. See what your child is currently learning here.

New Life Youth

New Life Youth meets on Wednesdays during the school year at New Life Gillette Church. 7&8th graders meet from 6-8 pm and 9-12th graders 7:00 – 9 pm. Students need to experience the unconditional love of God. When we teach and demonstrate a Godly lifestyle to students, we are influencing future generations as they grow in their relationships with Christ. We serve to equip teenage students with the tools they need to know God’s truth, trust His love, and serve the mission of His family.

Blessings In A Backpack

Blessings in a Backpack is a community-based program designed to provide snacks and meals to kids who may need a little extra help between lunch on Friday and breakfast on Monday. We feed between 1,000 and 1,300 kids per week in 20 schools throughout Campbell County depending on the faithfulness of dozens of weekly volunteers and many donors for this vital ministry.

Life Groups

Life Groups reflect the importance of spending time with other Christ-followers outside of Sunday morning at church. Life Groups at New Life meet weekly over the course of a fall and spring semester to discuss Sunday’s message, pray for each other, encourage each other to grow in faith and serve the community together. This is a reflection of how Jesus set up the early church of believers to worship and fellowship together.   Check out all the groups here.

Purchased Project

The Purchased Project supports New Life missions through fair trade partnerships. By shopping at the booth in the lobby, you support Christian missions in giving a living wage to talented artisans. The proceeds from each sale goes to fund many other missions that New Life supports. For more info click here.

Faith At Work

God is at work where we work, so we serve the higher interests of the kingdom while leading with excellence in the marketplace. Faith At Work will equip Christians to integrate their faith and influence their workplace, by making disciples and unleashing the kingdom of God wherever they are.

Meal Ministry

The mission of New Life’s Meal Ministry is designed to provide meals to New Lifers in need.  These meals are provided on a temporary basis for those who have a need including major medical, new babies, and deaths. A request for a meal train does not guarantee that one will be provided. Meal trains will be considered on a situation by situation basis and will be provided depending upon the availability of the team.

Our goal is to bring joy and comfort through physical nourishment to our New Lifers.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.”      ~ Matthew 25: 35

To request a meal train, please email Julie Smith at

Include the following information in your email:

  1. Name and phone number of the person requesting the meal train.
  2. Who is the recipient of the meal train?
  3. What is the situation (major medical – explain, new baby, death)?

New Life Ladies Craft Show

New Life Ladies’ purpose is to provide opportunities for women at New Life to come as they are and become who they were meant to be. We do this through Bible studies, journaling groups, fellowship meals, live simulcasts, and community events such as our annual craft show.
