Isaiah 60:1-4 (Paraphrase) Arise, New Life! Let your light shine for all to see, for the glory of the Lord rises to shine on you. 2 Darkness as black as night covers the area, but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you. 3 People will come to your light; the mighty will come to see your radiance. 4 Look, everyone is coming to New Life!
We are so grateful for the completion of our building on 28 acres across from the high school baseball fields and tennis courts in the rural community of Foley.
Prior to December 2015, we had been meeting in the schools since 2006 and are so excited to have our own space to reach out to the community and to have community groups use our facility. God faithfulness is evident in our building, property and location.
Isaiah 62:6-12 (Paraphrase) O New Life, I have posted watchmen on your walls; they will pray day and night, continually. Take no rest, all you who pray to the Lord. 7 Give the Lord no rest until he completes his work, until he makes New Life the pride of Foley. 8 The Lord has sworn to New Life by his own strength: “I will never hand you over to your enemies.”10 Go out through the doors! Prepare the building for my people to attend! Smooth out the road; pull out the boulders; raise a building for all to see.12 The people of New Life will be called “My Holy People” and “The People Redeemed by the Lord.” It will be known as “The Desirable Place”.
