Prayer for Today

Grant me never to lose sight of
the exceeding sinfulness of sin,
the exceeding righteousness of salvation,
the exceeding glory of Christ,
the exceeding beauty of holiness,
the exceeding wonder of grace.

Bridges To Change Giving Report

THANKS to all who have contributed food, clothes, or money for our ministry to Bridges To Change. We have been supplying an average of 12-15 boxes of food per month, which have been very gratefully received. As we go through the cupboard rather quickly, please don't forget that this is an ongoing ministry. If you could pick up a few extra items when you go grocery shopping it would be much appreciated. Please leave the non-perishable items at the manna cupboard, in the foyer of the Riverfalls campus. A sample of the items needed: peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti noodles and sauce, boxed complete meals, canned meats, hearty soups, cereals, canned vegetables--shop those sales!!! Please contact Evelyn Hall or Kathy Fuentes with any questions. "Give and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down,m shaken together, running over..." Luke 6:38

Coffee Cart Update

The "Coffee Cart" is a ministry of New Life Church, simply designed to bless and encourage the students on our doorstep at West Linn High School. Now that school is back in session we've had a great first week with the students. You don't have to be a Starbucks "barista", or even know your latte from a cappuccino in order to join us, you just have to be willing to help! More volunteers are urgently needed--early morning, weekday shifts. Please see Elaine Hochstetter, or call the church for more information, or to sign up. We need YOU!!

Missions: The Holladay Family Needs Your Help!

Rick and Mary Beth Holladay are our Global Outreach missionaries to the Art Factory in Germany, where our GO team ministered this summer.

The Holladay Family will be here arriving from Germany December 15th with their four daughters. The family will be traveling during part of their stay. Can you provide wheels for the Holladays? If you have a car or minivan you can loan, please call Jeff and Carol Carlson at 503-656-0970.

Men's Roundup 2007

A note from Lee Bennett: Even though the cook trailer wasn't completed yet, it still functioned extremely well. The plaque was very encouraging to see. There were several first timers there and it gave us the opportunity to explain to them why we have the trailer and the plaque. I think that Rick would have been very excited to see long time Christian men spending a good deal of time with these first timers. As the plaque says, iron sharpens iron.

A big thank you to Bill Kramer, Del Florea, Tom Elliott, Alex Fuentes, Billy Ferguson and Mark Hannifan. For all your hard work on the cook trailer, You guys rock, some of you cook!
