AGM: March 9th

Thanks For Joining Us For Worship Today

Were delighted to have had you with us today. If you are looking for a place to explore Christianity and its lifechanging relevance, we hope that you will find New City Church to be a safe place to ask questions and to grow in your understanding of the person and mission of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you have any questions about New City Church, Christianity, or the uniqueness of Jesus of Nazareth, please dont hesitate to ask us.

Please make plans to attend our Annual General Meeting immediately after the service on Sunday, Feb. 16th. More than just a presenting of the 2014 budget, its also a vision of what we want to do as a church and a reminder of where we are going.

The Season of Lent: March 5 through April 20th

The season of Lent (from the Latin meaning Spring) is a time of the year in which Christians from all kinds of backgrounds set aside time to reflect upon the meaning of the death of Jesus (the season covers the 40 days leading up to the celebration of Easter beginning on Wed, Mar 5 and concluding on Sunday, April 20). During our Sundays together this season of Lent, well journey through a study called, Keeping in Step with the Spirit, as we look at the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit. Before His death, Jesus promised to give us His Spirit, Gods personal presence who enables us to live the Christian life.

Pray Great Things: Seek God for the City 2014

! Our Confession of Faith ! ~ Based on Romans 8:1, 29, 38-39 ~ ! Leader: Let us together profess our faith by saying ! Unison: We believe there is no condem! We are convinced that neither life, nor

nation for those who are in Christ Jesus; for we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to Gods purpose. death, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
