Worship at New Life 

Centered in Word and Sacrament: Font, Table and Pulpit

The Baptismal Font

BaptismThe waters of baptism are central to our faith, and the font calls to mind God's unfailing promise made in those waters, As Paul says about each individual believer, our font is an "earthen vessel" which holds the extraordinary gifts of God (2 Cor. 4:7) so they can be shared.  

The Table

TableAt Jesus' Command, we share in the meal of his body and blood "given and shed for the forgiveness of sins" (matt. 26:26-28). This place, then, is foremost a table where Christ generously feeds us, rather than an altar for us to offer sacrifices up to God. Here, God comes "down" to meet us.

The Pulpit

PulpitFrom this place, God's word is shared in worship, as members read lessons from the scriptures, and as the Gospel is proclaimed and preached. As at the table, the focus here is on God's gift, the Word, to us.
