For the week of April 22, 2018

Pray for the "Incomplete" Rally!
This Saturday teens will hear how God wants to make a beautiful story out of their lives...
        Everyone feels overwhelmed at times...but especially teenagers. When you are a teen, sometimes it seems that every problem in your life is huge and immediate. Unfortunately, some kids try to cope in ways that are self-destructive. Teens need to hear that there is hope and help to be found in Christ!
        That message will be proclaimed loud and clear this Saturday night at New Salem, as we host the "Incomplete" Teen Suicide Prevention Rally. There will be live music from Soul Gate 7, a stirring testimony from our own David Weathers, and an inspiring message from Dr. Lance McConkey. There will also be lots of door prizes, including gift cards, a set of Skull Candy headphones, and a PS4 gaming system!
        If you know any teenagers, please invite them to this event. We are expecting groups from several other churches to join us. And please join us in praying for this event, that teens will hear the message that God wants to make a beautiful story out of their lives!  
"For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus."  (Philippians 1:6)
Join Us this Sunday for 

        This Sunday in our 10:45 AM service, our praise team and choir will lead us celebrate Jesus with songs like “Great Are You Lord”, “Crown Him”, and “His Name is Wonderful.” Pastor Alan will continue his series from Romans with a message entitled “Remnants and Rebels.” Bring a friend!

Got Plans for Lunch Next Sunday?

        Next Sunday make plans to stay after the morning service for a delicious lunch served by our student ministry, followed by a dessert auction! Admission is by donation, and the proceeds from both the lunch and the auction will help send kids to camp this summer. Want to help even more? Donate a dessert for the kids to auction off! See Student Pastor Greg Sluder for details.

Moms Are Special at New Salem!

        On Sunday, May 13, in our 10:45 AM service, we will celebrate moms and dedicate babies! We're asking that parents bring all kids from preschool up into the auditorium that day for one big family service (nursery care available, but no children's church that day). Every mom in attendance will receive a special gift, and every parent who has had a child born in the last twelve months is invited to take part in our baby dedication ceremony (registration required—contact the nursery staff or the church office). Please note there will be no evening activities at New Salem on May 13 in honor of Mother's Day.

We're Making Room to Grow!
        As part of New Salem's strategic plan, we committed to take steps toward accommodating growing Sunday School groups and creating spaces for new groups. Work is underway in three key areas, thanks to some wonderful volunteers and the leadership of our Building & Grounds committee. We are updating one of our senior adult classrooms, adding additional space for our growing young adult group, and creating a larger space to place a planned new group. Please be patient while the work is in progress. Thanks to everyone for pulling together to make this happen!
