Our Home Dinner

On June 23, join Dave & Becca Gibbons for a meal at their home.

As we gather around the table, we’re excited to share about “Our Home” and our vision for the future of our church community. At the heart of this vision is our commitment to invest in the next generation of leaders, spanning across all ages and backgrounds, and build upon the foundation laid down over the past 30 years.

“Our Home” represents an exciting chapter in the journey of our church, and this evening of fellowship will focus on this evolving dream, with a lovely meal, thought-provoking conversation, and the opportunity to become pioneers in shaping the future of Newsong.

We look forward to sharing this special evening with you and exploring the endless possibilities that lie ahead for “Our Home” and Newsong’s next 30 years.

Introduction to Prayer

Many people wonder about prayer and ask soul-searching questions about prayer…

  • What is the real purpose of prayer?
  • What does it mean that, “prayer moves the hand of God?”
  • Why are my prayers sometimes answered and other times they are not?
  • Do I still need to pray, even if I don’t have “the gift of prayer?”

These and many more questions will be answered in this interactive workshop. We will examine some different modalities of prayer and how each one is an invitation from God to set into the intersection of the seen and unseen realms. This workshop promises to be a transformative experience for anyone who wants to learn how, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” (James 5:16b, NIV)

About the Introduction to Prayer Workshop Presenter:

For the last 19 years Ed Salas has served as the Spiritual Formation Pastor at Newsong Church, a multi-site international church based in Santa Ana, CA. Ed is the author of the book, The Praying Church, Discovering What the Heart Longs for Through Prayer.

Newsong Orientation

Newsong is the “Home of the Misfits.” It’s a vision that inspired us from the very beginning.

Dave G. always wanted to create a place where his mom could come and feel accepted. Going back to when his dad left, he saw her experiencing so much pain and wondered: does a church exist that could handle a story like hers? Newsong was meant to be the answer to that question.

Over the years, the vision has been further defined – we like to say, “We are a 3rd culture academy of Spirit-led misfits.” But what does that really mean?

Newsong Orientation is a place for us to break that down and introduce what it looks like to live that out.

We hope all kinds of people who feel like they don’t belong anywhere else in the world can find their place here.

Young Adults Bible Study

GOSPEL OF MARK – INDUCTIVE BIBLE STUDY

Facilitated by: Daniel Allen

  • This study is expressly for young adults (20’s to 40 years old)
  • Eight Consecutive Sundays, January 21 – March 10

 

Daniel Allen has been a member of the Newsong Family since 2015, and currently serves on the worship team playing drums. He works with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship directing campus ministers who serve students at colleges and universities across Orange County. Daniel currently lives in Tustin with his wife Charissa, who is a Marriage and Family Therapist in Santa Ana, and their daughter Talia, who excels at being cute.

Daniel, why are you excited for this inductive scripture study at Newsong?

“A huge part of my job is creating spaces for young people to fall deeply love in with the Bible and allow scripture to impact their lives and relationships. I’m hoping that this will be a similar experience for our Newsong young adults. I’m excited for this gathering to be a space to meet new people and study the Bible in an engaging way.”

Third Way Dinner

At Newsong, we endeavor to love, accept, and include every person who comes with a sincere desire to cultivate a love relationship with Jesus Christ.

We recognize there are significant matters regarding which not all Christ followers agree. Rather than run from this, we choose to press into meaningful, even difficult, conversations with others. Our purpose is not necessarily to come into lockstep agreement with one another. Instead, the goal is the dialogue itself, doing the hard work of love.

Life together happens around the dinner table. Family members are not first required to agree on all issues before sitting at the same table to eat together and enjoy each other’s fellowship. Third Way Dinners are an opportunity to experience what that looks like in practice.

At this table, we want to hear each other’s stories, honor all voices, and ask grace from each other should we misstep along our journey of learning and understanding.
