Dear New Life,

Summer is either here or around the corner!

We've got some important transitions happening this week. Both our Campus and City Home Groups have all come to a close in the last week or two (or three) which ushers us into summer mode. This summer we are doing something new. We are inviting our whole church community to Summer Home Group. Whether you are a student in college or in kindergarten, whether you're working, or hoping to work, married or single, you're all welcome! Our campus and city staff teams are combining forces this summer to lead one combined Home Group that will meet on two different nights (Wednesdays & Sundays). Both evenings will have the same content so come join us on whatever night works best for you! We'll have some weeks where we discuss the Bible and questions springing from the our Sunday Service teachings, and some weeks when we just gather to have fun together.

If you're new to our church, this is a great way to make some new friends. If you've already got some great friends here, this is an excellent way to make more! This summer is a great way to get to know parts of our community that might not normally be in your circle.

Our first groups start this week (Wed 5/17 & Sun 5/21). Come on out and join us! Click here for more info, and check out this preview of our Summer Home Group reading plan.

I'm looking forward to seeing how God will grow and strengthen our community this summer!
