UPDATE as of February 24, 2021
IN-PERSON WORSHIP SERVICES RESUME
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28TH, 10AM
Beginning Sunday, February 28th, 10am, New Life Church will resume in-person worship services at the Brunswick Center at Calabash, posting service recordings Sunday afternoon for those unable to attend. On February 24th, the NC Governor announced an easing of COVID-19 restrictions beginning on February 26th that make it possible for NLC to resume in-person worship services with adherence to capacity limitations, social distancing, and the wearing of masks. Health guidelines still generally advise those 65 and over and/or those with compromised health conditions to avoid being indoors with those outside of their own households, so we encourage everyone to evaluate his/her own fitness for participation. For those unable to attend in-person services, recordings of our message and/or worship service will be posted Sunday afternoons at /sermons-media/new-life-sermons.
