New Day Community Church does not necessarily support all the content on each of these pages. First of all, since we are called to be "salt", it is imperative that we know what it is that we are "flavoring". Therefore, we want you to be informed. Secondly, as a community church, we feel responsible to provide you with information about the towns near us and the area surrounding them. Explore freely; most of the material represented here will be useful to you in many different ways. Finally, be aware that, today, much of what is considered "Christian" contradicts the Word of God. Therefore, when considering information found through various links, you should know that New Day does not endorse or recommend everything other ministries produce. Please proceed with caution and an open Bible.
