New Life Baptist Church, Scranton, PA announced on Sunday, March 22, 2015 that their offer to purchase a former Methodist church building was accepted. Presently the church worships in rented quarters that are less than helpful in their outreach efforts. Though visitors sometimes stop in, the downtown second floor location is not favorable towards building the congregation.
Chris Hindal added to the mission emphasis of Pastor Mike Stallard by preaching on the assignment given to the church in Matthew 28. Many people committed to pray for an opportunity over the next two weeks to have a spiritual conversation with a lost person. He used PowerPoint to stretch the horizons of the people as they saw what God is doing in unlikely places on the globe. The Lord is building His church and the church is actively engaged in spreading the gospel.
