Easter Potluck- NLC used to prepare lunch on many Sundays. We love the social aspect of meeting together. The Meals ministry decided to bring that feeling back again! We are having an EASTER Potluck and need volunteers! Here are all of the details. https://mealtrain.com/3d8g41
Impact Team From Faith Bible College- NLC often partners with Faith Bible College International. This week, some of you heard Gabby Black speak briefly about Impact. Impact is a program where FBCI sends their students to serve at churches along the East coast for a 10-day period. We are super excited to have both CC and Gabby Black here to serve during this Impact session from April 1st- April 10th.
Youth Convention - Our Youth is headed to Youth Convention in VT for a 3 day time of worship and fellowship. For so many this can be where the Lord reveals the call he put on their lives. Please be in prayer for all of our children and leaders during this formative time from April 21st - 23rd.
Jews for Jesus - April 10th during both services, Jews for Jesus will be presenting Passover Seder meal significants ON Passover! Have you ever wondered what the real traditions of Passover look like, how they are performed, and the significance they have to the adopted family of Christ? Mark your calendars.
Ministry Spotlight - Service is often thought of as how we serve others, but the real work is what God is doing in our own hearts as we are obedient to His call. Pray about where you fit in the body of Christ! Sign up with a ministry by emailing info@NewLifeRaymond.org with the subject as the ministry type!

Food Pantry - The pantry will be handing out Easter Baskets to the families the April 14th, the Thursday before Easter and would love some additional help. We have 2 families who attend the pantry with relatives in the Ukraine. Please be in prayer for them. Dottie is also asking that you cover the pantry in prayer that those who attend come to Jesus. Our faithful volunteers pray with and for them, but intercessory prayer from the whole church to move them into a relationship with Jesus would be fantastic!
Worship Team - is looking for a piano player. If you are interested in trying out, please contact Dave Watson @ David.Watson23@gmail.com.
