A place where meaningful connections are made!
ALL THINGS NEW. NOW.
On Tuesday morning, April 11, 2023, we officially closed on 1370 S. Winter St. and now own 38,000 sq ft of building and 4.4 acres of property just off the busiest intersection in Lenawee County. This whole journey has been a miracle from the beginning! We believe in God for something bigger in this next season at NewLife Church. As of right now, our goal is to be meeting and operating out of the Commons building by Christmas of 2023.
What is NewLife Commons?
NewLife Commons is a place where meaningful connections will be made. The Commons is a community center with many opportunities to connect with others through a church, an indoor park, a sensory room, a coffee trailer, a multi-purpose floor space that could accommodate a half-court basketball court/ batting cages/ workout space/ dance studio, creative spaces, and so much more!
What is the process moving forward?
We hope our complete dream for this space can happen sooner rather than later! With 38,000 square feet of space, the possibilities are endless! Currently, we are working to begin the process of separating the building from the existing mall facility. What that means is we have to build a giant wall! While we are building the wall, we are starting to clean up and phase out each part of the redevelopment.
The commons will be available for meetings of all sizes, with spaces ranging from 10 people to 500 people. It will also house community storage space for organizations serving the needs of Lenawee County. Our hope over the next couple of years is to develop programs for the community, from tutoring services to life skill classes that will be available for free to everyone.
We aren’t just building another church building. We are making a place for people to connect with others, and the church is one way to facilitate that dream.
The heart of NewLife Church is in the name “NewLife.” We desire to see All Things Made New. Now.
SO MUCH MORE
Since 2020, a group from NewLife Church has led the redevelopment efforts for the Adrian Mall property. Below you will find renderings of the property once fully redeveloped.
