Restoring people to an authentic relationship with God in Canal Winchester, OH

NewLife seeks to carry out God’s loving and redemptive work amongst Canal Winchester, Columbus, Ohio and the World. This page can’t contain all of our different ministries, but these are a few important ministry groups at NewLife:


Life groups are small, authentic Christian communities that promote spiritual growth, meaningful relationships, and mission.

Life groups (our version of small groups) are gatherings of 6-12 people primarily from the same geographical area meeting in homes on a weekly basis for Bible study, prayer, and mutual edification. Life Groups are our primary vehicle for making disciples; as such, they provide opportunities for spiritual and relational growth, practical love and service, and evangelistic outreach. In a Life Group, you can be known, cared for, encouraged, and held accountable in the Christian life.

For many people, Life Group is the highlight of their week. We are so excited that you have chosen to be a part of what God is doing at NewLife. Find a life group!
