Spring Hope

In just a couple of weeks, we will turn our clocks ahead one hour. Living in the Northeast in the winter puts many people into hibernation, but soon we will awaken to the sound of summer songbirds returning home, to green vegetation, and the vibrancy of new life that comes with the Spring. Some of us, I fear, have been hibernating for the past 2 years, but the future is filled with hope. Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy…

God is in Control

2022 is here, we don’t know what the new year will bring, but we do know that God is in control no matter what. I hope that encourages you, it does for me. He has carried me this far, whatever His plan holds for each of us will be used for His glory. Let us commit more to God this year than we have in the past. Happy New Year! Pastor David

Thank You Church

Officially my first Pastor’s Note as Senior Pastor of New Life Church. As November brings remembrance of things we are thankful for, I am especially thankful for all of you and all that God has done for this church for 21 years. It’s an exciting time and God will continue to use us for His Glory as we are obedient to His will. Leaves fall only for new ones to take their place; same tree, different season. God Bless! Pastor David…

Worry Not

Hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the tragic day of 9/11. It was a moment in time that we will never forget. But like many tragedies in our lives, emotional and physical scars cause us to look at the future differently; sometimes with fear or worry. But when we worry about the future we fail to trust God. Trust that God already knows and controls the future and whatever He has for you in this life pales in…

Call to Freedom

Gal 5:13 For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. – We have been given an incredible gift in Jesus; but if you look around, freedom can give people the ability to do things that are unholy. The liberties that American freedom provides has lately been perverted to not only allow, but to celebrate sinful behaviors of all kinds. Let us get back to the Christian…

Return to Relationship

It appears like Saul, we are on the way to de-mask-us! Praise God for getting us through this past year together. Sadly for many, we took Social Distancing and turned it into Relational Distancing. Let us return to building our relationships within the Body of Christ and “Be devoted to one another in brotherly love…contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.” Rom 12:10-13 — Pastor David

Who is He?

Mark 8:29b “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered and said to Him, “You are the Christ.” This is a question that every one of us must answer. Yet if we agree with Peter, then there comes a responsibility to not only recognize Him, but to place our trust in Him. Jesus wasn’t simply a “good teacher” or a “prophet”; He is the Son of God who died to pay our debts, which we owed to God, on the Cross…

Why is Love Greater?

1 Corinthians 13:13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love. Why is love greater? Some would argue that faith is most important since it is what allows us to trust in God for salvation, which is our hope. But without love our faith is worthless. Love is part of God’s character and it’s His love that enables these three things to operate in our lives. We are not told to choose between the three,…

Keep it in Order

Keep it in Order We all know that this time of year is when we get ready for the colder months ahead; we budget for the heating bill, we pick up the yard, and finish our outdoor projects so that our house is in order. It’s also a great time to make sure that our spiritual things are in order; to get back into our devotions and prayer time if we’ve let them slip. It’s much more important to keep…

Back to Church

Back to Church It has been a long two months, but we are finally back to church. I want to thank you all for your support and faithfulness toward your pastors and church during this time. We are truly blessed by God to have each other and I believe that it will only make us stronger to face what lies ahead. If you are like me, then you probably have been reminded to be thankful for many things that we…
