Churchwide Lenten Bible Study
New Life will be holding a church-wide study on Pastor Rich’s 2nd book Good and Beautiful and Kind during Lent this year. Our small group time will look a little different than it has in the past. We are hosting one-hour in-person small group discussions after both services every other week of the series (3/19, and 4/2).

Congregational Day Alone With God
Are you seeking to be refreshed and draw closer to God? Wondering how you can slow down enough to spend an extended time in God’s presence? Join us on a Congregational Day Alone with God, facilitated by Pastor Sherin Swift, where we will engage in various spiritual disciplines in a day long retreat at The Met Cloisters where we will experience a taste of the monastic life in the midst of New York City. This will be a special way to enter into Holy Week.
Together, we will reflect and pray as we remember Christ’s suffering and crucifixion. We will be gathering in person at 4pm and 6pm. Our 6pm service will be live-streamed.
At Easter, we celebrate the Jesus that defied death to give us hope and life in abundance! Invite your family and friends to join us in person or online. Our 11 am service will be available via live stream on our Facebook and YouTube pages, and at elmhurst.newlife.nyc/live.
