“The Life-Giving Church” Toolkit

NewSpring is a life-giving church, marked by the presence of God, activating us to impact others. How does that happen? That’s the question we’re going to answer during “The Life-Giving Church.”

We’ll dig into what it means to be a church that serves, a church that gives, a church that connects, and a church for the generations.
