Family • Parents • Marriage • Relationships

As part of New Life Online we are launching “Advance”. Join us virtually online using the Zoom platform and engage in live video podcasts with guest speakers along with New Life hosts. There will also be opportunities to ask questions and engage virtually with these experts who specialize on challenging topics such as mental health, wise parenting in a digital world, the threat of pornography, thriving in your marriage and family in the age of coronavirus, and lots more.
We will be doing family, marriage, youth and parent “Advances” weekly over the next couple months. Family Advances will be happening on Thursday nights at 7pm and Youth Advances will be on Friday nights periodically as part of our virtual youth group ministry.
