op_christmas_child.png  Operation  Christmas  Child  

I know it seem early but I think its never too early to start planning for Christmas.  Once again New Beginnings Church will be collecting shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.  Samaritan's Purse has been sending these shoeoxes and the message of the Gospel overseas since 1993.  We will be collecting the boxes November 16th & November 23rd.  For more info on how to build your own shoebox, see Joanne Milasus or log on to the webiste: www.samaritanspurse.org/OCC



And Paul wrote... "For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes."  (1Corinthians 11:23-26 NIV)

We will celebrate the Lord's Supper during Sunday worship on November 30th.  Hope to see you there.

sunday_school.pngHey Kids!!!


We have a fun and educational Sunday School program here at New Beginnings Church.  After the morning worship songs, children our dismissed to attend Sunday School held during the Pastor's morning message.

   September-October Sermon Series   

During 2014 we are going to focus on Empowering Discipleship.  What does a life- transforming relationship with Jesus look like?  We want to KNOW, SERVE and OVERCOME.  

Have you ever noticed how hard gifted musicians or atheletes or craftsmen have to work to perfect their skill, game or craft?  Consider the level of discipline required to, day in & day out, practice and hone their movements, motions and talent.  Whether it's an Olympic Gold medal, an Emmy Award or a Vince Lombardi trophy, to the victor goes the spoils... but the practice and exercise required to acheive victory such as these is nothing story of astounding.

As Christians we are saved by God's grace through Jesus Christ, but we struggle daily with sin that beats us down and defeats us.  Throughout the New Testament we see certain practices exercised by Jesus, his disciples and the first church to help them live in the VICTORY of their salvation.  We are going to look at these Spiritual Disciplines!

Join us and see what God's Word has to reveal to us today.

Psalm 146:1-3, 5 KJV

Praise the LordPraise the Lord, O my soul!  While I live I will praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.  Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.  Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the Lord his God
