FISH Food Bank Secures Permanent Home

New Life Assembly is one of the sponsor churches for FISH Food Bank so we were happy to read the following announcement. When the FISH Community Food Bank opened its doors in 1971, it served around 500 people a year. These days, it’s not unusual to serve nearly 500 people a week. Simply put, FISH feeds people, and a lot of them. So when FISH at Snickelldoodles burned late last year, many folks wondered where their next meal would come…

New Men’s Group Starts This Wednesday

Join other men this Wednesday evening as Ted Bramble leads us in a time of prayer, study, and fellowship.  We will be going though a study called “Believe”. This curriculum’s objective is to give a solid overview of what is means to follow Jesus and how it is lived out in the real everyday world. We would love to have you join the guys this Wednesday evening at the church, 7:00-8:30 pm.

Experiencing a Migrant Headache.

As I wait to board my plane to home I thought I’d share a few observations of my experience of being up close and personal with the European refugee crisis. 1. The crisis is complex and fluid. It is politically complex and difficult is keep up with the tsunami of humanity. This is not one stream of humanity flowing from one situation towards a one specific goal. It is more like many rivers joining together to form the Mississippi trying…

Red face – Red shoes

So Sunday I went to the airport to fly off to Europe to minister to and with the refugees for a couple of weeks. Unfortunately, Europe wouldn’t let me in because although my passport was valid for the duration of the trip it would have expired within 3 months of my return (by mere days). Didn’t know that. They didn’t let me go. So, after much stress and meltdowns and with help from my family I expedited my passport and…

Upcoming Sermon Series

The Story of David:   Lessons from a Checkered Heart King David is one of the most beloved and familiar characters found in the Bible. His stories are legendary: he defeats Goliath with a rock, he falls in lust with a neighbor’s wife, he dances shamelessly in public, he pretends to be insane, and he faces the unimaginably pain of being betrayed by his own son. Epic narrative. But the goal of Scripture is not simply to get us into…
