What to Expect...

John 20:16, Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”).

Amid all of your other Easter preparations, the Good Friday red ribboning of your front doors, and other special plans, etc. here are a couple of quick reminders for Holy Week 2021.  


We are joining with the other Assembly of God churches in Bloomington/Normal for a 12:00pm, one hour, in-person Good Friday service at First Assembly of God, 800 East Vernon Ave, Normal.  This service may also be viewed online here or on First Assembly’s Facebook page.  We hope to see you there! 



In addition, if you are planning to attend Easter Sunday morning worship service at New Life here are a couple of reminders:

  • 8:30 - 9:30 AM - Breakfast (served in the lower level)

  • 10:00 AM Worship Experience/Baptism Sunday

  • Easter Egg hunt for grades PreK - 5th grade immediately following service


  • Masks will be made available to anyone who wants them.  But we encourage you to bring your own mask if you feel you need one. 

  • Mask wearing is welcome, but not required. 

  • Green and red (or pink) stickers will be available in the lobby welcome desk to help everyone identify your comfort zone, without having to say a word*:

    -RED/PINK STICKER - If you are attending and feel more comfortable wearing a mask and social distancing please wear your mask into the building and grab a red or pink sticker

    -GREEN STICKER - If you are attending and are comfortable with no social distancing please put on a green sticker

    *Remember to look for these colored dots as we may have a number of guests with us.  

  • If you are a guest with us please know that while we regularly disinfect our building we do not typically follow social distancing guidelines unless a person in attendance asks that of us by wearing a red dot.  If you do not wear a red dot or mask we assume you are not practicing social distancing either.

  • Finally, there are hand sanitizer receptacles, disinfecting wipes and Lysol aerosol cans around the building available for use. 

Come expecting to hear a message of truth, hope, and life this Resurrection Sunday as we celebrate the Risen Christ, our Victorious Warrior.  He will meet you right where you are at. 

We are excited to see you all!

Spoiled for the ordinary,

Pastor James
