New Life LINK (March 15, 2023)

New Life will be a congregation that:

  • Actively invites and welcomes all,
  • Demonstrates both desire and evidence of a living faith,
  • Has the space to meet the needs of a growing church and community.

Sundays 8:15 & 10:30

On the Journey to Jerusalem

There are two words that summarize the heart of the Christian response to God: thank you. These two words describe the essence of Christian worship.

~ Luke 17:11-19

Meet the Council

Lucinda Sperry

Board of Outreach

How long have you been attending New Life & what brought you here initially?

We have been attending New Life for about 8 years. Our family was looking for a local Lutheran Church to attend. 


What are your goals for your board/position for the upcoming year?

My goal as co-chair of outreach is to help our church tell its story to the community and connect our members to opportunities to assist others in need in our community. I believe there are new residents looking for a church home that don’t know what we are about or that we are here and what we have to offer.

What is your favorite pizza topping? 

Black olives

Dogs or Cats? I  love all animals so dogs AND cats. 

Lance Taylor

Financial Secretary

How long have you been attending New Life & what brought you here initially?

My family and I have been attending New Life for 9.5 years now. We moved from Illinois where we attended an ELCA church that we really liked. We were glad to see we had an ELCA church in Norwalk when we moved her because Sheila accepted a position with the school district. We've never regretted it at all. New Life is a wonderful church family!

What are your goals for your board/position for the upcoming year?

My goals for my position of Financial Secretary are to make sure I accurately document the gifts we receive and communicate with the council our financial standing. I also want to be better about getting quarterly reports sent to our members to make sure they can view and let me know if there are any discrepancies.

What is your favorite pizza topping? 

Sausage and mushrooms.

Dogs or Cats? I am definitely a dog person!
