But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life.”
Romans 6:22


The purpose of New Life Community Church’s Life Recovery Program is to fellowship and celebrate GOD’S healing power in our lives. Through the power of God’s Word, surrender, accountability, wise choices and love, you will see God work in your life and your family. Our Life Recovery uses the 12-step recovery model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) in the context of Scripture. This program is for men and women 18 years and older. Everyone is welcome whether New Life is your home church or not. Children’s Ministry is available for birth to 5th grade.

Our Life Recovery program is led by great leaders that will support you and help you through the process. Please
look through this brochure. If you have any questions please contact the leaders or call the church office. We look forward to seeing all God has in store for you.

God bless you,
Pastors Steve and Tami Abraham

Children's Ministry

Children’s Ministry for Life Recovery is a great place for your child! As you walk through the 12 steps in becoming healthy and whole, your child will hear a story from the Bible, sing, have fun activities and more.

It is our desire for every child to have an incredible experience in a safe and loving environment. The New Life staff and volunteer ministry teams go through training and a background check. We are committed to seeing children become strong followers of Jesus Christ knowing that He has created them on purpose and for a purpose.
