Among veterans of every generation there is an unshakable bond and camaraderie that transforms us into brothers and sisters forever. People say war is "Hell." Veterans are affected by war like no other experience in our lives. War creates a sense of anxiety that can really put us on edge. It can destroy our peace of mind and bring nightmares, flashbacks, anger, stress, depression, isolation, lack of concentration, intrusive thoughts, and guilt. There are many experiences that veterans go through that only fellow veterans can understand. Some veterans have paid the ultimate sacrifice with their own life, some have been emotionally and psychologically wounded forever. We thank all our veterans for their service and unselfish sacrifice to our nation.
"Veterans for Jesus" is a Christian support group for veterans here at New Life. This group reaches out to the veterans in our church and our community, seeking to cover them in prayer and offer a Biblical perspective on the issues they face. “VFJ" is not a place of judgment, but a place where God is free to work in a veteran’s life and meet their spiritual needs. Join us at our next event as we pray, socialize, and, most of all, feel a sense of belonging.
