New Life Lutheran Church
Where everybody is somebody
and Jesus Christ is Lord!
This Lent, we embrace the task of simplifying not just our junk drawers and closets but our whole lives. A simplified life is about living one to another. Our hearts, our calendars, our relationships and more all receive gentle, Lenten reflection all so that our lives can be emptied of that which never sustains and more room is made for God.
