What’s been going on at New Clover Creek!
One of Jimmy Buffett’s most memorable songs is “A Pirate Looks at Forty.” It is a song about a man who turns 40 and looks back on his years so far.

You’ve heard us talking about it for a while now, and it’s finally here! Our new website is now up and running, and if you are a current member or regular attendee of New Clover Creek, we hope you’ll take a moment to share the link (http://newclovercreek.com/) with all of your friends and family – and more especially those who you believe need a good church to call “home”. We pray this resource will help make others aware of our church, and that they’ll be encouraged to come hear what the Lord has for them to hear. We also pray we can expand what this website will do in the future, to better serve those looking for a church home, as well as our members.
