Aspire Together’s
BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN
Sunday, June 23rd
We will kick off our 4th annual Aspire Together’s Baby Bottle Campaign to help fund their work in providing support for women facing unplanned pregnancies, as well as supporting couples and families, through all stages of their journey free of charge.  They are now offering STD testing free of charge, so are looking to help increase their tiny budget.  And, in light of the recent focus on unrestricted, unlimited abortions in this state it’s more vital than ever to help make this faith based pregnancy support available for women.   Baby bottles available Sunday, June 23rd through July 28th Please feel free to take one or more home and fill with your loose change (and/or bills, if you so desire), and return the bottle by July 28th.  Please know that in donating to this ministry you are helping to save the lives of unborn children.

PRAISE AND PRAYER NIGHTS
Sundays 6pm
and
Thursdays 7pm
and
Fridays 6:30pm
At New Life Christian Church 34 Centre Dr.  Milton
We are praying for revival.  Revival of our love for the Lord.  Revival of our passion for our neighbors.  Revival always starts at the source. Our source is our Heavenly Father. Jesus gave us a great pattern. He would go to the Father, pray, get His mission and then act. If Jesus had to pray, I suppose we ought to. Please consider joining us. We will keep it to one hour. We will pray, praise and draw closer to the Lord and each other. Revive us Lord!

KISSED BY THE SON
Revive and Reform Conference
July 12, 13 & 14
Moody Center at Northfield

58 Winchester Rd., Northfield MA

Workshop speakers include:

MARK FEE
“Loving the Jesus Way! Parts 1 and 2”
Saturday Afternoon Sessions
Part 1 – Re-imagining our time with God: in order to love the Jesus way, as He has loved us, we have to spend time with Him . . .
Part 2 – The “Love Verse” and “God-sighting” practices: Come discover how to experience prayer, scripture, and community as paths to experiencing God love you “up close and personal” like the disciples did through Jesus.

PHIL ZALDATTE
“Rethinking the Prophetic as Kingdom Ambassadors”
Saturday Afternoon Workshop
God has been preparing His Esthers, Daniels and Josephs to fulfill their call as His Kingdom Ambassadors. They will not be known just for their prophetic gifting but also for the weighty Holy Spirit presence they will carry. How is God transitioning these ambassadors to prepare them? Time to Arise and Shine!

DICK KEYES
“The Strange Modern Invention of
Being an Image Without God”
Saturday Afternoon Workshop
In Alice in Wonderland the grin of the Cheshire Cat remained “for some time” after the cat had disappeared. We might expect events like this in fantasy literature. But it creates more serious problems for a nation when God is abandoned yet we try to maintain the human dignity and equality that depend being in His image. We will look at some of the ways our Declaration of Independence is understood today.

PHIL ZALDATTE
“Putting God’s Power on Display”
Sunday Morning Service
Moving from words to deeds, to bring about cultural reformation in your sphere of influence. What is the Gospel of the Kingdom according to the Bible? How can we demonstrate the proclamation of the Gospel of the Kingdom? How can the Body of Christ move from cultural irrelevance to relevance? Remember, it all begins with you!
