New Life Church
Contemplating on a community to write about, a particular one stood out to me. New Life Church. This church was founded by Pastor Rick and Michelle Bezet February 4, 2001 in Conway, Arkansas at a shabby car dealership. There are fifty locations throughout Arkansas and one location recently opened in Florida.

I think that having God in your corner will alleviate the rough patches us young people will encounter.

With this assignment I hope myself and others will take into consideration what New Life Church offers and reflect as if they seem as the right fit as in enlightenment.
Observing this atmosphere was an uplifting experience. Previously, I indicated that I have attended this church sporadically back home which proves I am a newcomer that has so many questions about this community.
