New Leaf Church DNA
New Leaf Church DNA
New Leaf is an interactive New Testament style house church that by nature focuses on relationships and personal change. NLC doesn't "gather for church" as much as learn God's word, support each other and go out into the community to share with others. We try to balance gathering for worship by going out to serve. As a house church, NLC is less about supporting a property and structure. Instead, we can be free to be more focused on relationships and ministry in the community. This past quarter NLC we hosted several Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) events, participated in local festivals, did community Prayer Walking and joined in Little Elm's Clean and Green program. These were planned as ways to meet people and to give back to the community. In fact, this month we have several community "Pop Up" events planned with the next one this Friday as we host a Christmas Child shoe box packing party. Come check us out.
Where to find NLC? (and there is food)
New Leaf Church normally meets every Saturday evening and we enjoy a meal together each week at 5:30 pm before the worship time at 6:30 pm. This is usually a light soup meal provided by NLC but about every other week we enjoy a theme based potluck. This Saturday the menu is a baked potato bar. The potatoes will be provided and everyone is encouraged to bring a topping. What goes well on a baked potato? Maybe you like chili, chicken and gravy or cheese and brocolli. It will be fun. Everyone is welcome but don't feel like you need to bring something. Just come as my guest. It is a great time to meet people and build relationships. NLC does life together! Mike and Elizabeth Spitzer host this house church in their home at 3104 Bridgewater Little Elm, TX 75068 (at the end of the street in the second cul-de-sac.)
Do you want more from life?
If you would like something more than the traditional church, a desire to grow in your relationship with God and with your neighbors in the area or just would like to be a part of something trying to reach out to make a difference in our community, come to check out New Leaf. Keep track weekly where the "Pop-Up" church is meeting and doing on the Serve tab above to find the Calendar of Events and share on Facebook. Check out an old Newsletter Blast to give you a feel of life at NLC. Join the mailing list from the link on the Newsletter Blast or our facebook page and get emails weekly where and when NLC has events.
Our next major "Pop-Up" event will be this Saturday October 20 as we participate at the Frisco Ranch community day. We will be Popping-Up, meeting our neighbors and giving away stuff. Call me for details if you would like to participate.
