Note About Recipes for the NLICC Cookbook
If you attempted to submit recipes for the church-wide cookbook via a smart phone or tablet, there is a chance that your recipes were not received due to technology issues. If you have concerns that your recipes were not received as a result, please contact Amy Auker.

Order Your Copy of the NLICC Cookbook by April 1
Order a copy of the cookbook during the month of March for $8 each. Checks can be made payable to New Life in Christ Church. Please write “Cookbook” in the memo line. Please give your check to Amy Auker by April 1. Also, consider purchasing copies for your child(ren) to have when they are grown, or, even a daughter-in-law that enjoys cooking. Please note that additional cookbooks will not be ordered; the total number of cookbooks purchased as of April 1 is the number of cookbooks that will be ordered. Cookbooks will be available for pick-up at New Life in Christ’s 40th Anniversary Celebration in July.

Talents to Treasure Mini-Conference | Saturday, April 25,  8:30 am – 1:00 pm
Please feel free to join us beginning at 8:30 am in Room 100 for a light breakfast buffet and mingling. Our official “opening” will begin at 8:45 am. Three total mini-sessions will be offered: Session I from 9-9:45 am, Session II from 10-10:45 am, and Session III from 11-11:45 am. Please stay and join us for a potluck-style Soup & Salad Bar at noon in the Fireside Room. The conference itself is free, but, some sessions might require a small donation to cover supply costs. These sessions are labeled as such on the registration form. We have 13 different leaders graciously sharing their talents over the duration of the morning; these talents range from DIY/craft-related, ministry-centered, and lifestyle-focused. A comprehensive list of these mini-sessions (with their corresponding descriptions) is provided on the online registration form. The online registration form will be made available next week. Please note that women will choose three sessions to attend on a first come, first serve basis as space is limited in various sessions. Look for more information soon! Contact: Amy Auker
