The Big One will be happening on Sunday October 3rd, 2021. It is going to be a single outdoor worship service where the entire body of New Life Community Church comes together. Many elements will feel quite similar to a normal Sunday morning while there are some amazing things planned to celebrate being together!

"What about bad weather?"
// In the case of inclement weather, the leadership of New Life will make the decision earlier in the week and move the event to on our current property (17935 S Moonlight Rd) with multiple services like a normal Sunday. More information will be released as we get closer. Make sure you download our app and turn on notifications for the most up-to-date info!
"What is the site currently like?"
// It's a big old field with a mix of weeds, some grass, and a good portion of dirt! It has been rough graded so it is very walkable, however we recommend large wheel strollers for kids and having someone help you if you have limited mobility. Keep your eyes open, and stick to our designated walking areas that should be the smoothest terrain.
"Will there be seating provided?"
// This is a BYOS (bring your own seat) event! We highly recommend camping chairs or bringing a blanket that you don't mind getting dirty. The property is still partially dirt, so it's not going to be nice and fluffy like a lot of youth sporting events where there is solid groundcover to sit on.
"What about bathrooms?"
// Porta-potties will be on-site for restrooms. Please do not attempt to use bathrooms in nearby local businesses.
"What about water?"
// We're bringing a BUUUNCH of water. Thankfully, as far as heat goes, October is pretty forgiving in Kansas but we want to keep you hydrated."
"What is the parking going to be like?"
// We have been given access to park on the grass plot to the west of our property. (Big thanks to the land developer!) There will be a gravel drop-off loop that can be used to drop off kids and those less mobile. We highly encourage carpooling to the event and taking advantage of the drop-off loop. We will also have shuttles running from the current church building (17935 S Moonlight) to the site.
"What else should I know?"
// Show up early! We have approximately 1200-1400 people who call New Life Community Church "home" and that could mean it will be a lot of people to get parked and over to the stage. If you typically show up right at service time or 5 minutes in... don't do that! We're bringing "THE ENTIRE FAMILY" together so giving yourself time to see people you might not typically see is half the fun!
