Prayer Focus for the week of Mar. 20th

New Life Church has a prayer focus each week. Our prayer focus is broken down into three categories of ministry: 1. We pray for another local church that is proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. 2. We pray for a Global Outreach Partner who is proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. 3. We pray for a ministry of New Life Church that is proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ locally.

  • March marks the second full year that our ministry has been involved serving with the Shepherd's Door ministry of Portland Rescue Mission and our students continue to show up each month with a servant's heart.
