FAQs

Where and when does New Life meet for service?

Our services are held at 1310 Clegg St. Petaluma, CA 94954
Our identical services start at 9:15 and 11am

How early should I arrive?

Services start at 9:15 and 11am and we promise to start on time! Even though our campus is pretty easy to make your way around, you’ll want to arrive 5-10 minutes early to take advantage of our coffee and tea bar and have plenty of time to find a comfortable seat in the auditorium. We have pretty clear signage around the building but feel free to ask anyone on our guest service team (they have special nametags that make them easy to spot) for help!

Our facility provides plenty of parking so rest assured, we’ll have a spot for you! There is no assigned parking so feel free to park anywhere in the lot.

If you have children grade 6 and below please allow a few extra minutes for check in (see our process here) and more if you would like to meet the classroom leaders.

How should I dress? What should I bring?

You do you! More often than not, our worship team and pastors are in a plaid shirt or a t-shirt and jeans. We also have people who occasionally wear their “Sunday best” and everything in between. Our only rule is, come in what makes you comfortable!

Other than that, you don’t need to bring anything!

You are welcome to bring a Bible (we generally teach out of the NIV translation) but we provide teaching notes with the verses printed right on them and they’ll be up on large projection screens too.

Do you have classes for my children/what do you offer for kids?

We have exciting and fun classes for children grades 6 and under every Sunday.* The teaching and activities are tailor-maid for each developmental stage and every Sunday your kids will go home having learned something new and having had some fun!

Security is very important to us! We have electronic check in, a children’s security team, background-checked adult volunteers, and a growing capability to live video monitor the classrooms.

For your older students, in 7th through 12th grade, we have ALIVE our student ministry that meets on Sunday nights from 6:30-8:30pm with a service specific for them.

*Club56, the class for 5th and 6th grade, happens during the 9:15 service ONLY.

How long is your service?

Our service is about 65-70 minutes. Every Sunday we have a live band leading us in worship (music) followed by teaching on a real-life topic.  Humor is a part of our learning process & volume is a part of our worship…we believe God is known for love and joy – we want to be that too!

And if you’re new, don’t worry, we won’t make you stand up and we won’t single you out. Also, if you are not ready to join in on the singing during worship or participate in any part of the service that’s fine by us! You can sample some of the worship here and the teaching here.
