With the uncertain times we are living in, the Church of Jesus Christ must do everything we can to tune out the noises around us and position ourselves to hear and obey the voice of God. Purposing to do this will position the church to be all that God has called us to be.
On July 20, 2020 Pastor Mark gathered the leadership of New Life and shared a vision the Lord gave him, to have the church wholeheartedly seek the Lord for a Spiritual Awakening through prayer, fasting and strategic gatherings. Like in the book of Acts, this awakening will take place by believers fasting and praying around the clock (24/7) and then gathering regularly in the intimacy of a home rather than a church building. We call them NEW LIFE WORSHIP SITES. We have opened more than 20 of these sites across our city, believing for a great awakening in our community.
Here are a few other pieces to the vision we are calling AUGUST AWAKENING:
- 24/7 PRAYER: Team up with other believers to lift up the name of Jesus in our city, nation and world 24/7.
- WORSHIP SITES: Join other believers right in your own community on Sunday mornings for prayer and worship.
- PARKING LOT WORSHIP SERVICES: Join us each Sunday night at 7pm as all our worship sites join together in the parking lot to lift up the name of Jesus corporately. (8101 Sunset Ave, Fair Oaks, CA 95628)
- POST WITH PURPOSE: With the rapid growth of social media, and the impact it has on our relationships, we are purposing to make every post an opportunity for God's love and power to reach those that view it. We are refraining from positing about politics and we are aiming to make social media an avenue for people to be encouraged by scripture, testimonies, and encouraging quotes. You can visit our Post with Purpose page to view and share weekly posts from our staff.
- 31 DAY NEWS FAST: We are taking the month of August to seek the Lord and learn the word of God. Anytime we would usually spend watching news we are diverting that time to being in the presence of God.
- REVIVE CONFERENCE: August Awakening will conclude with our annual REVIVE Conference. Join us for powerful services, in our parking lot, with Sean and Christa Smith on August 28th and 29th at 6pm, and August 30th at 10am with Jarrod McEachron.
