New Life Christian Church would like to invite you to join us for the return of our weekly Bible Fellowship to take place in-person at New Life and online via Zoom.
These studies will begin on Thursday April 15th, 2021 at 7pm in the New Life Café Fellowship area and online via Zoom. We will begin with the weekly series study of One Blood.
Did you know that nearly two dozen pastors from churches all over the East Bay have been meeting in fellowship, prayer and discussion for several months hoping to change the spiritual climate of our communities through the Gospel? What brought us together initially was our empathy toward those hurting and in pain because of the injustice and racial inequality that is evident in our society. I have personally been meeting with this group of pastors and have found our fellowship to be so enriching and beneficial for my own walk with Jesus and also in pastoring our church.
Last fall, we as a group of pastors led the members of our churches through a six-week small group experience where all the churches were represented. This group is now organizing for another round of this experience and I am inviting our New Life Church Family to join me in this multi-ethnic, multi-church experience.
Beginning April 15th and continuing through June 10th, you can experience a nine-session small group study with a mix of members from churches throughout the East Bay. The meetings will be held on Thursday evenings from 7pm-8:30pm via Zoom and in-person at New Life. The small group material will be the book, “One Blood,” by John Perkins (Moody Press, 2018).
Each week, the small groups will cover one chapter of the book led by facilitators from the various congregations participating. The meeting format will include a welcome from one of the pastors, a presenter who will summarize the chapter contents for the evening, followed by a 40-minute small group discussion time before coming back when the host for the evening wraps things up. These positions rotate so there’s new faces leading each week. You will find this to be a very transformative time for all participants and I hope you will consider being a part of this special opportunity. If you are willing to participate, registration only takes a minute and you can do so here:

Join us every Thursday for our food pantry from 3pm-5pm. Thank you to all of our volunteers and members that have been patiently waiting for our food pantry to restart back up while we were on hold, due to Covid-19 guidelines. We are glad to say that we are now back up and operating. If you know of anyone that has need of food please let them know that they can come to New Life and receive it. No residency requirements necessary.
The number of families in need of food in our community has outgrown the capacity of our aging refrigerators. Will you consider making a tax-deductible charitable donation to our non-profit? Your compassionate donation will go towards the purchase of a new refrigeration system and will equip us to continue to help alleviate hunger and build a healthier community.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 150,000 people in Alameda County live in poverty and more than 25% of them are children. Located in downtown Hayward, the food pantry at New Life Christian Church has distributed groceries to those in need in the East Bay for the past 14 years. Every week we serve nearly 100 families including the homeless, elderly and underserved.
