Kids Ministry Launched

Newlife church has launched a kids ministry on Sundays. We are using the Mayflower Bible Lessons curriculum that has activities for children of all ages. As our numbers increase we plan to split the kids into age levels and start a youth ministry.

 

Seminar on the Prophetic Gift with Phil Wilthew

Saturday’s seminar was a huge success. We began with worship, and then a teaching session from Phil that explained the biblical basis for prophecy. Practical exercises started with encouraging one another.

As we moved into the afternoon, Phil and the team talked about obstacles such as fear and a spirit of proud self-sufficiency and there were lots more opportunities to put what we were learning into practice as we prayed for one another.

  • Many people have the idea that the church is always trying to get money from people, so our intention was to show that God’s love is free by handing out free water.
  • All 500 bottles quickly went, thanks to our great team of “hander-outers”
  • We also wanted to dispel the myth that Christianity is boring by showing that Christians have fun
  • A group of people hung out on the front lawn all morning, singing worship to God and just enjoying being together
  • Many passers-by read our posters, and several engaged in conversation.
  • Almost all our literature packs were taken by interested people
