The Church. More simply, we are people. Not the yummy Soylent Green kind of people, just people. Real, live, human people with all our human struggles. Just – like – you! The community at New Beginnings truly is an omnium-gatherum, a uniquely diverse combination of people, who under many other circumstances might not have come together! But we are also a people who understand the importance of new beginnings. It is in our understanding of the ultimate new beginning in Christ that we find our common unity!
Our story is long and fascinating, and we have seen God through the Holy Spirit move to draw together two distinct groups of people into one united body! In 2019 God brought our two pastors together and ultimately our two congregations! We still partner with and support both of our denominational movements—Church of God, Anderson and Mennonite Brethren. Together we have almost 200 years of ministry in Ulysses!
Who knows exactly what God has planned? Our desire is to do our best to keep following the Spirit, walk in obedience, and be the church where it’s needed! And, man, do we NEED the church now as much as ever. We pray that God continues to draw people to himself through each of us here and in everyday, normal, human, life.
What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at New Beginnings. We look forward to sharing our story with you and look forward to you sharing your story with us. And who knows…maybe we even get to be a part of each other’s stories. So, here’s to new beginnings and all that they bring.
