Coming Soon…Can You Imagine a Place
God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together. We see it taking shape day after day—a holy temple built by God, all of us built into it, a temple in which God is quite at home.–Ephesians 2:19-22 (The Message Bible)
“Building Hope for a New Life”
This… is a look at the future of New Life Family Worship Center! Although it’s just a vision right now, you can begin to imagine the possibilities of a campus that spans upwards of 40 acres to house a variety of functions, services, and activities. Our worship will begin with architectural inspiration. As you enter the property, your individual encounter with God will begin. Here we will be able to host a variety of outdoor events and activities. There will be ample parking, and a state-of-the-art facility designed as a centralized location to reach out to our surrounding community.
Now, let’s take a look inside the future of New Life.
The lobby will be expansive and able to accommodate our people as we connect in this warm and inviting space. A grand staircase will take you to the second level. There will be a Welcome Center for our guests, a fully stocked bookstore and a café with seating areas. With easy access to all areas within the building, the atmosphere and first impression of our new lobby will be a great place to meet before and after services.
Next, let’s take a look at the Sanctuary. This space will be designed to nurture and enhance the worship experience. We will have plenty of seating, stage room for the choir and band, and professional lighting and sound that will be second to none.
Our campus vision also includes a conference center. It will be equipped with the finest audio/visual capabilities, wireless connections, and dedicated meeting, registration and break space. This distraction-free environment will set new standards for the New Orleans area conference centers.
Our youth center will be designed for helping our young people build relationships. It will include a game room, Pool tables and air hockey, and their own auditorium for worship and teaching.
Other areas within the Main facility, or worship center include: [read where each visual can stand alone for a while without hearing next piece]
– a Computer lab
– Regular classrooms
– Health and wellness fitness quarters
– A gymnasium
– A bowling alley
– A library
– A formal chapel for private weddings and small events
– A swimming pool
– And even a recording studio for music and producing other radio and TV productions.
As you can see, our vision is big, because we serve a big God.
As we begin to imagine all the potential that God has placed before us, let’s use our imagination and creativity to dream about what can be done for His eternal purpose.
Know that our efforts are not focused on the details of the building, they are about changed lives that will come as a result of the facilities and the vision that God has given us for future generations.
As we begin to dream it, let’s plan to do it, together… to give, and to fulfill the vision that God has for us here at New Life Family Worship Center.
