Are you coming for the first time?

We know that showing up to a new place for the first time can be intimidating, but at New Life Community Church it’s our desire that you feel right at home from the moment you pull into the parking lot! As a first-time guest, you are VIP to us so we'll be there with you every step of the way!


A church for you and your family.

Our Kids Zone is available for children birth through sixth grade at every service. The care and growth of every child is our highest priority and our passion is to create exciting, Bible-driven, interactive lessons especially designed for your kids!

Leave the fancy clothes at home... if you want!

At New Life Community Church, there's no dress code (as long as you're dressed, we're good)! Some show up in suits or dresses, and others wear t-shirts and jeans. We want you to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable!
