Whether you've attended church your whole life or never stepped foot in one before, we know it's not easy visiting a church for the first time. Where do I go? Where should I park? How should I dress? How long does it last? What about my kids?
We want your first experience at New Life Community to be relaxed and for you and your family to enjoy the service. So, here is some information to help you know what to expect:
WHAT TIME IS THE SERVICE?
New Life Community meets every Sunday
morning at 10:15 and the service lasts between
about 75 to 90 of the fastest minutes you'll
ever spend. We encourage you to arrive a
few minutes early to find a good seat and get
situated because you won't want to miss a single minute.
WHERE IS THE NEW LIFE COMMUNITY CAMPUS?
The New Life Community Campus is at 7197 Craft Road in Olive Branch, Mississippi. We're just a stone's throw north of the Walgreens at the corner of Goodman Road and Craft Road on the west side of town. If you are using a GPS you may have to put in 7197 New Craft Road even though all the street signs simply say "Craft Road". Click here for a map and directions.
WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I GET THERE?
When you arrive, you will be greeted by some of our most awesome people and will receive a program on your way into the auditorium. This program will include message notes, important information, and a CONNECT Card, which you will turn in at the end of the service.
And on your way in, if you have any questions, just look for one of our courteous and friendly volunteers. They're easy to spot and always happy to help!
HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
We care more about you than with what you wear, so the dress is always casual. At New Life, you'll find that most people dress casually in everyday clothes. Dress how you are most comfortable, and you will fit right in.
WHAT ARE THE MESSAGES LIKE?
Our goal every Sunday is to teach the timeless truths of the Bible in a way that is engaging and applicable to your life. You will find that the messages are practical, easy to understand, and grounded in Scripture.
WHAT ABOUT THE MUSIC?
The music is plugged in and always rockin'! New Life Community features a live band with guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums every week.
WHAT'S AVAILABLE FOR MY KIDS?
If you have children, they will have
a great time as everyone stays together
for the first part of our super kid-friendly
time of worship. Most kids love the
upbeat music. Children up through 5th
grade will be dismissed to The
PowerZone (Kindergarten through
5th Grade) or Little Blessings
(Birth through Age 4) about half way
through the meeting for a time
of high-energy, fast-paced activities,
fun games, and Bible teaching on their
level. We want this to be the
best hour of your child's week!

WHAT'S AVAILABLE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE?
At New Life Community, we have
a great group of teens who meet
in 3D NewLife Groups during the
week and once a month all together
for a big 3D Meeting in the gym.
The rockin' music, casual dress,
and relaxed atmosphere during the
New Life Community Sunday
Worship Celebration makes for the
perfect place for teens to worship
God and grow in their faith. For this
reason, we encourage all teens
to participate and serve in the main
