On behalf of the entire team at New Life Community, we are thrilled to announce some of the new projects we have been working on.
Let’s start with the most obvious one, this blog! We began the process of redesigning and developing a new website more than two years ago, which we quietly launched last fall. Let’s be real. The journey has been interesting with all the twists and turns we’ve experienced. I know we’re not the only ones, most of us can testify to that reality at some level or another.
One of the new projects we’ve dreamed about is including a blog.
Well, here at New Life Community we value our community. Not just our church, but the neighborhood and greater community at large. We love our town and we love the ways we get to engage and interact. Truthfully, we are always looking for ways to connect and partner. So, what does that have to do with a blog, right?
The blog provides a platform to be able to share and talk about what’s happening here at New Life Community. Not because we like to talk about the church, but because we love to share God’s story of life transformation and healing. This blog gives us a place to launch encouragement and inspiration in a way that extends traditional reach. In this place, you will find access to teaching and practice resources to help in your spiritual life. And if you are passionate about encouraging and inspiring others, this becomes a rich resource for sharing the love!
Up next of our new projects is the launching of our new podcast!
Last year, after the stay-at-home mandate was issued, we began a weekly Facebook Live Segment called, The Pastor and the Counselor. This series was birthed out of an overwhelming need for encouragement and help. Those early days of Spring 2020 were pretty shaky for most people and so Pastor Ryan and two of the counselors from our resident partners, at In Him Christian Wellness, began a weekly conversation on the current issues concerning wholeness and wellness.
After more than a year on Facebook, we are excited to announce that we are launching a new podcast. The Pastor and the Counselor will move over to NLC Life Cast, but we will also add a sermon of the week.
Why a podcast?
The reality is, that while Facebook was initially helpful when we started this journey last March, it’s time for a change. It’s not that we want to change things just for the sake of change, because let’s be real, that’s never really fun. No, we’ve moved beyond what Facebook can provide in terms of platform and function.
NLC LifeCast is a podcast brought to you by New Life Community, where we have conversations, share stories, and collaborate with guests about what it means to practically take the next right step in following Jesus. We hope that in each episode you will discover that you are not alone, you are dearly loved, and are an important part of a much bigger story… God’s story.
The first episode of NLC LifeCast officially went live earlier today. You can find it anywhere you find podcasts, but you can also check it out by clicking the link below!NLC LifeCast | The Podcast
