  • Hospitality Ministries

    New Life Church seeks to be a welcoming place for friends and strangers and a source of comfort for those who are hurting. Hospitality volunteers help us do that by preparing coffee and refreshments for Sunday morning, coordinating and assisting with fellowship meals, and providing food and meals for the sick, the hurting, and the bereaved. If you'd like to assist with any of these hospitality ministries, contact the following point persons: Sunday morning coffee or Memorial Service: Marge Walz; Fellowship Meals: Pat Stark; Mercy & Bereavement Meals: Connie Sheie. For questions, contact Pat Stark.

  • Sunday Service Operations

    We are blessed to have access to the assembly space at The Brunswick Center for our Sunday morning worship and other corporate gatherings. Transforming that space into a space for worship requires the assistance of a number of volunteers to set up chairs, tables, audio/visual equipment, etc. Additional volunteers assist with greeting, parking, and clean up. If you'd like to volunteer to assist with our Sunday morning operations tasks, please contact our administrative assistant Pat Stark.

  • Brunswick Senior Resources, Inc

    Brunswick Senior Resources, Inc. (BSRI) is a non-profit organization serving the needs of seniors throughout Brunswick County. The Brunswick Center at Calabash is a local outpost of BSRI, serving meals and providing programs for seniors in the Calabash area, with plans to offer after-school programs for children and youth in the future. As a tenant of The Brunswick Center at Calabash, New Life Church considers BSRI our neighbors whom we seek to serve.

  • Music ministry

    Music is an important part of the worship services at New Life Church. Our praise & worship music is a blend of traditional hymns and contemporary songs, and complemented occasionally by choral music specials. Generally speaking, our music rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings, with rehearsals alternating between our praise team one week and the choir the next. If you're interested in singing in the choir, contact Elaine Sprinkle. If you're interested in singing or playing instruments with the Praise Team, contact Carole Maner.

  • Mission Teams

    From time to time ministries we support, local and global, as well as other agencies involved in mercy and outreach, invite individuals from New Life Church to participate in teams to perform specific tasks or support particular missions. These individuals and teams build and repair buildings, assist with medical clinics, provide services in emergency & relief situations, etc., lending a hand and a tender heart where active compassion in needed. Contact contact Pat Stark if you'd like to make yourself available for mission teams. 

  • To be determined...

    Service opportunities often emerge right in our midst, beginning with a need we discover or a request from someone in our church or community.  As we settle in to our new location in Calabash and listen to the needs of our Brunswick area communities, we anticipate discovering new opportunities to love and serve our neighbors.
