Member Visitation: When members are hospitalized or confined to their homes due to an illness or disability; the pastor, minister and/or deacons/deaconess, and other caring members will visit them to uplift their spirits and provide support. They will serve communion and pray for their healing and comfort. If you or a loved one are in need of visitation, contact the church office or complete the Request Form located in our Contact Us link.
Grief Support Services: Transitioning through the death of a loved one can be one of the most challenging times an individual has to endure. Knowing this, New Life Christian Church has ministries in place which are specially designed to extend much needed comfort, encouragement, and support to bereaved members and their families.
Prayer Partner Ministry: The purpose of this ministry is to provide prayer, comfort, and support to bereaved members and their families. Ministry members visit the homes of the bereaved at least once or twice to offer their condolences as well as minister to and fellowship with them and their families as appropriate.
Pastor's Counseling Services: Pastor Sargent has a caring and true heart of love. You can meet with Pastor Sargent one on one to discuss anything that's troubling your heart, mind, and spirit. We all go through some hard times and just need someone to talk to. Pastor Sargent is available and will talk with you without judgment as well as guide you in the right direction and provide spiritual advice according to God's Word.
Wedding Planning: The ceremony of marriage is always a cause for celebration. New Life Christian Church has a special ministry designed specifically to assist you with the execution of your wedding ceremony and reception. We can provide a Wedding Planning Guide to help you through the planning of your wedding and/or reception, which includes the service(s) we offer and fees. Contact the church office to schedule an appointment with a member of our Wedding Ministry team.
Infant Dedication: Dedicating infants to the Lord can be traced back to the Old Testament when Hannah, who was barren, was blessed with a son, Samuel, whom she dedicated to the service of the Lord because she was grateful for the Lord’s grace and favor (I Samuel 1:19-28). You can show the Lord your gratefulness for your child as well by giving him/her back to the Lord and identifying godparents who can assist with rearing your child in a godly manner. Infant dedications would need to be scheduled through the church office. When you make the appointment, ask about how you could add music and photos of your family to the service.
Baptism: At New Life Christian Church, we hold that baptism by water is a symbol of baptism by the Spirit. If you join the church as a candidate for baptism, you will be baptized as a symbol of your faith and the burial of your old life (i.e. plunging into the water) and the emerging of your new life in Christ (i.e. rising up from the water). Baptisms occur after meeting with the pastor, then on first Sunday morning immediately following service, you will receive the right-hand of fellowship as a new member of New Life Christian Church of Westland.
