Welcome to New Leaf
This Saturday, November 22, at New Leaf we will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving feast - roast turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and all the fixings. The community is welcome-- but the focus will be on worship and giving thanks. As we sit at the table after the meal and enjoy a slice of pie we will also enjoy a time of reflection considering the roots of this holiday. It will truly be a time for giving thanks -- and we do have so much to be thankful for. Please join us and come as my guest. If you have a traditional Thanksgiving meal specailty you would like to bring to share that would great - but not required. Come as my guest as we re-focus our Thanksgiving holiday.
New Leaf Church meets for worship every Saturday 5 pm at the Children's Lighthouse (behind the Sonic and Valero Gas Station on FM423) -- as a young church we are"Re-Thinking Church". Just because "we have always done it one way" doesn't mean we have to continue that way. At New Leaf we are trying to change our way of thinking about "church". One way is to get practical --like serving in our community. Another way is in addressing felt needs like building relationships and making new friends.
If you have been turned off by the "traditional church" or "organized religion"; but still sense a longing or need for something more in your life come check out this young church. At New Leaf we want to be a church that is about relationships -- with each other and ultimately with God. In that process we are trying to truly discover and live out the motto, "Don't just go to church... Be the church!"
Please accept this invitation to make a change in your life this fall-- a change for the better. Try turning over a New Leaf.
