Are you coming for the first time?
We know that showing up to a new place for the first time can be intimidating. 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!
What about my children?
Our Kids Zone is available for children birth through sixth grade at every service. The care and spiritual growth of every child is our highest priority and our passion is to create fun, Bible-driven, interactive lessons especially designed for your kids!
What should I wear?
At New Life Community Church, there's no dress code and no judgement. Some show up in suits or dresses, and others wear t-shirts and jeans. We want you to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable!
Meet Our Pastor
Pastor Juan and Rosa Sanchez

They were Fusion ministry leaders and Elders at Newlife Midway before being launched out in the Spring of 2014 to plant Newlife Garfield-Ridge, where they led services at Kennedy High School. In the Fall of 2016 both the New Life Garfield Ridge and New Life Cicero church families merged into one new dynamic body of Christ, which Juan and Rosabel now pastor. Both Juan and Rosabel are life-long residents of the City of Chicago and both work as educators for Chicago Public Schools. They have a shared passion to see healthy, vibrant and spiritually equipped individuals and families grow and thrive. Together, they have four children and a beagle named Zoe.
Pastor Samuel y Violeta Sotelo
Samuel y Violeta Sotelo, originarios de México, no imaginaban que Dios bendeciría a una pareja como ellos, con el privilegio de servir a otros a través de la salvación, bautizos, y crecimiento espiritual. Un grupo de estudio bíblico se convirtió en la congregación que llevan hoy. Aun en medio de circunstancias difíciles, el ministerio de nueve años, sigue creciendo gracias a la fidelidad de Dios. Junto con el amor y apoyo de la congregación, su familia espera continuar haciendo un impacto para Cristo.
