At New Life Church, we dream of equipping people for life. Part of that dream becomes a reality through our classes. Our classes focus on a few of the aspects of adult spiritual formation: biblical and theological development and practical theology lived out in everyday life. With Scripture as our foundation, each one of our classes provides a biblical overview and/or goes deeper into topics in Scripture. And each of our classes have interactive elements so it is a great way to connect with more people at our church. If you are new here, are a leader, or haven't taken a class yet, we suggest you start with Intro.  At Intro you will learn about our beliefs and doctrinal distinctives, our vision and values, and more! Please join us in the exciting journey of developing a stronger biblical worldview. All for the glory of God! 
Intro Class
Learn what we're about
This two-week class is for those who want to know what we’re about -- both newcomers and old-comers alike. We’ll share about our values, vision, history, statement of faith, and doctrinal distinctives. During the class there will be discussions in small groups so it is a great way to meet more people in our church. At each class, there are at least three members of our Elder and Minister Team so it is also a great place to meet some of our leadership and ask questions. In order to prioritize each person in our church attending this class, it is our only class we currently offer free childcare.

LGBTQ+ Class
This class is a combination of teaching, testimony, discussion, and reflection regarding how we as a church, while holding a traditional sexual ethic, can love well our LGBTQ+ siblings. In previous offerings of this class we have also had a panel with Q&A. We long to be a church that embodies grace and truth. This is a great class to grow in our knowledge and care for sexual and gender minorities.  Come learn with us!
