“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light” - Isaiah 9:2

Join us in celebrating that the light of the world has come! We’ll be walking through the significance of the four Advent candles and singing Christmas carols as one, big family. (Don’t worry, we’ve got glowsticks and activity bags for the kids.)

Advent gets its name from the Latin word for “coming.” These four weeks celebrate God coming to earth as a man. They remind us that Jesus came to save us and is coming back again.

For the next 25 days, join your no ordinary family in reading the story of Jesus’ birth and remembering the promises He came to fulfill.

New to NewSpring?

If it’s your first time at NewSpring, you are our honored guest. We do church a little differently, so here are a few frequently asked questions to help you feel right at home.

Do I need to wear a mask?

Yes. To help everyone stay healthy, masks are required at all times while inside. (If you forget your mask, don’t worry. We’ve got extras at Guest Services.)

If you don’t feel comfortable wearing a mask or joining in person, please join us online. The service streams live at 9:15 am and is available on-demand for the rest of the day.

What are you doing to protect against COVID-19?

We’ve made several changes to help everyone stay healthy during the pandemic.

  • We’ve placed hand sanitizing stations throughout the building, and masks are required while inside.
  • We’ve also shortened the service so we can disinfect before and after every gathering.

If you have specific questions and concerns about COVID-19, from the cleaning products we’re using to how we encourage physical distance, we’d love to hear from you. Email hello@newspring.cc anytime.

How long is the service?

Gatherings last about an hour. We usually start by singing then hear from a member of the teaching team. (Check out past sermons to get a sense of their teaching styles.) At the end of the gathering, we create space to respond to what we’ve heard by singing, praying for one another, and bringing our tithes and offerings.

What should I wear?

Most people dress casually, but you are welcome to wear whatever makes you comfortable.

Can I attend if I’m _____________?

Fill in the blank with whatever fear you have about not being accepted: divorced, a single parent, broke, an addict, bi-racial, a skeptic, etc. Everyone is welcome at NewSpring. So come as you are, and we’ll see you at Christmas!


Still have questions?

We’d love to answer any questions you might have.
