The Gathering, New Life’s quarterly joint service will be held on Sunday, July 31. Service will not be held at the East Campus location. Worship service will be held at the Central location from 10:00 AM until 11:15 AM (casual attire).
After service join us in hosting the Biggest Tailgate Bash in Bessemer’s History!
Do you tailgate at Football games, NASCAR events, concerts, or in the middle of a parking lot for no apparent reason? Do you have the coolest tailgating rig around? Here is your chance to show off your set-up and get a chance to win cash prizes – just because you are a true tailgate fan. Enter your set-up to compete in the biggest tailgating challenge around. Come and show your pride, bring your games, grills, tents, trucks, coolers, cookers, buses, RV’s or whatever you want. You must pre-register for a tailgate space by July 24, 2016.
There will be a DJ and music, game truck, and much more! Bring your trunk-load of food, family and friends for a day of fun and festivities! Festivities will be held on the grounds of New Life Interfaith Ministries and The Center of Excellence.
We will also honor first responders (EMTs, Paramedics, Police Officers & Firefighers), a special group of men and women who protect and serve the Bessemer community.
Are you the best Tailgate Cook in the city? Do you make the best chicken wings, ribs, fried fish, baked beans, or maybe downhome sausage? Are you more of a sweet tooth and make a mouth-watering apple pie, peach cobbler or pound cake? Tailgate Wars will host a cooking contest comprised of 4 specific categories. Here is your chance to show off your culinary skills! You have the opportunity to enter your entries into the following categories: Passable items (wings, sliders, etc.); Meats (sausage, hamburgers, chicken, ribs, bratwurst, etc.) Desserts (pies, cakes, cobblers, etc.), or in the Mixology category comprised of non-alcoholic drinks (lemonade, punch, fruit spritzer, etc.). Cash prizes for all winners! Registration forms are available at the Information Center.
