An important aspect of any worship service is the auditory part, or, what we listen to as we worship individually and as a church community. But, what if you were deaf? How would that change the experience, or would it?

Now that it has been officially launched, New Life Deaf Church offers worship services and bible study for deaf persons, provided by a deaf pastor for deaf church members. This is much more than having someone sign, or interpret, a church service. Many churches do that.

New Life Deaf Church is located at Hilldale Baptist Church on Madison Street. Sunday worship service is at 2:00 p.m.

The birth of this church goes back to Easter week 2011, when a group of deaf members held their first bible study. From that beginning of just a few people, New Life began to grow as more deaf people find out about the class.

In the months that followed, a motivating force to move the program forward was Artie Grassman, a long-time member of Hilldale Baptist.
