Parent Resources

It's just a don't miss it

At New Life Church, we hope to be an influence in the life of your kids. However, we know that we aren't the only influence. In fact, “whereas a church only has 40 hours of potential influence with kids each year, the average parent or guardian has 3,000 hours of potential influence" ( Because the world moves fast and it is hard to keep up with the latest trends, we want to help! We believe that when the Church and parents work together, we can have a much greater influence. In other words, we are better together. We don’t claim to know it all, but here are a few resources we want to make you aware of:
