New Life Kids believes that following God is an adventure. We want to invite your family on the adventure of knowing God by cultivating an authentic faith in the lives of kids from birth to 5th grade. 


Kids enjoy Bible-based lessons using Orange curriculum, with age-specific teaching, games, worship and activities that reinforce the week’s lesson. Our newly renovated children’s area has separate classrooms for different ages and developmental levels during both Sunday Services:

The Meadow (Infants and crawlers) | Hill Top (walking through 2 years old) | Sweet Water Falls (3 & 4 year olds) | Base Camp (5 year olds and Kindergarten) | The Summit (1st through 5th grade)

A mother’s room is also available adjacent to the auditorium, featuring a live video feed of the Sunday worship services for mothers with infants.


On Wednesday Nights NL Kids has programming for preschoolers and elementary children. Your kids can expect high-energy games and an extended worship and teaching time. Check-in opens at 6:45PM.


Your first stop will be the New Family Registration Desk located on the lower level. Here our NL Kids team members can greet your kids and introduce them to peers and teachers.

For more information contact Pastor Brian at or (678)880-9324.




If you are (or have) students that are in the 6th - 12th grades, then NL Students is for you! Our meetings have balanced attendance across those age/grade groups, so connecting with other peers is easy!


NL Students is the student ministry at New Life Church. Students who call New Life Church home are asked to get involved in everything we do. They’re plugged into NL Groups. They volunteer. They give their resources and are passionately inviting their friends and family to our weekend/midweek worship services. They’re not waiting to make an impact. Students are making an invisible God visible, right now.


Our weekly gatherings are Wednesday nights at 7:00p. Students can connect and grow with peers as they walk through life with Jesus. All students are also invited to participate in our Sunday worship services as well.


In main auditorium (where Sunday worship services are held).

LEAD is a leadership program designed to develop 8th grade – 12th grade students into who God created them to be. Our goal in LEAD is to encourage your student to connect with God in a deeper way, provide an opportunity for them to flourish in their gifts, build community with one another, be developed as leaders, and cultivate their personal walk with Jesus. In the process, they get to be a catalyst for change and spiritual impact in their own student ministry and in this generation. “We get to LEAD because we choose to serve,” and students have the opportunity to learn how to live by a code - making decisions out of integrity and honor. Our heart behind LEAD is to equip your student to walk boldly in the purposes God has for them, knowing him deeper than they ever have before! Fall 2018 semester signups open soon. For questions about Fall 2018 feel free to email 


Online registration for our Winter/Spring Semester of Groups IS OPEN NOW:

Registration will close at midnight on: January 27th.


How to manage the page: When you click the link above, it will take you to our small group database where you can scroll through and see all of the groups available! When you click on each group, it will open the window where you can get more information on where the group is located, if they offer childcare, who the leaders are, and the estimated cost of materials. If you have specific needs for your group, such as it meets a certain day of the week - you can filter the group choices at the top of the database page. You can select the day of week you are available and all of the groups that meet on that day will show up.

Once you’ve found a group: Okay, you’ve found a group you like. How do you join it? Once you click on the group you want, there’s a button on that group’s page that says “Join This Group.” When you click on that button it will ask you for your email address. You then must check your email to continue the registration process and secure your spot. We do ask that all couples register individually, so we can ensure the groups don’t become over crowded. We try to keep our small groups around 12 people total, and once a group reaches 12 people it will automatically close.

If you need assistance with registration or were unable to find a group please contact

NL Groups have one simple vision in mind: bringing people together. We know that being in community is a vital component to growing as a Christ follower. The example of a Christian church in Acts stresses the importance of ministry "house to house," which is why our small groups meet in homes all over the North GA area weekly. Jesus Himself walked through life surrounded by 12 disciples and through that they were encouraged and empowered to do His work. We know that God created us to live in relationship with others -relationships meant to fill you, sharpen you, and help carry your burdens. Joining a small group provides an opportunity for accountability, spiritual growth, and fellowship. That's why small groups exist at New Life - to make these meaningful relationships accessible to you.

- FAQS -


  • What is a semester?

We know life can be hectic and schedules can be full, so committing long-term to a small group isn't the easiest decision for your calendar. At New Life, we offer two "semesters" for small groups a year - Fall & Winter/Spring. When you commit to a small group, you commit for only one semester at a time, which is typically 10-12 weeks. 

 Upcoming Semesters:

Winter/Spring Semester 2019: February 3rd - May 5th

Fall Semester 2019: September 1st - November 3rd

  • How often does a small group meet?

Small groups meet once a week for about 2 hours. In the semester system, there are typically 12 weeks offered and your group is encouraged to meet at least every other week during that time. We know with school vacation schedules like Spring Break, Winter Break, etc... - some weeks will need to be skipped. Your group and group leader will establish your specific schedule at your first group meeting!

  •  What happens during a small group meeting?

A small group meeting is simply people joining together in a home, enjoying food and fellowship, and discussing topics in the curriculum. Small groups are not meant to be a classroom setting with pressure or homework, but a group of people enjoying life with each other and growing in their faith. 

  • How long does a typical small group stay together?

Groups will stay together for the entire group "semester." This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. After every semester, we want to give you the opportunity to meet new people, join a new group, or even step up to lead a group for the next launch!


  • Is there childcare available?

- Childcare varies from group to group, but the groups that offer childcare will be labeled clearly at the Group Launch Event. There are plenty of groups that will provide childcare, although some families choose to hire a personal sitter.

  • Are there certain groups for married and single people?  

- Yes! Depending on what leaders step up to lead each semester, there is always a variety of groups offered. In the past, we’ve had leaders passionate to lead a marriage group, or a women’s group. However, most small groups are interest based or general faith studies - meaning anyone, from any stage of life is able to join those groups, including singles and married.


  • Can I invite my neighbors or friends to my small group?

Absolutely! Our goal is for everyone to be involved in a small group. However, we do ask that they register online during the registration period to best accommodate our leaders and the space available in their home. We believe that starting and completing a semester together allows for the greatest connection. Small groups are meant to be a safe place to open up and share, so adding new members in the middle of the semester could make the growth of your group more difficult. Any friends or family interested in joining a group can register online during the open registration period.

  • What if I don't like the small group I join?

- The best part about joining a small group is that God already knows and orchestrates exactly who will be in that group. Some groups are meant to fill you while others might be meant to stretch you. We encourage you to commit to the meetings with your group and allow those relationships to grow. The simple strategy to finding success in small groups is to not give up! We believe there is a group that's right for everyone - including you! 


  • How can I become a small group leader?

Leading a small group isn't about being perfect or having a theology degree; it's about serving others by giving them a place to connect. We strive to equip all small group leaders with the tools to make their group successful, by providing leadership training and relevant curriculum. Every small group leader is required to go through Discovery Classes and attend the Small Group Leadership Training. If you're interested in leading a small group, please contact Codi Henson at
