An Extension of the Local Church

At New Life, we serve as an extension of the local church in ministering to the various needs of the people in our communities. We strive to be thoughtful and intentional in the ways we come alongside and partner with you to best serve the communities we live in. God has called us to work together as one body. We are excited to see how He will use our partnership as a powerful force in this life-affirming mission: changing hearts, saving lives, building families, and restoring hope.

WAYS TO BE INVOLVED TODAY: TWIN CITIES

WALK FOR LIFE

We invite your participation and support as we Walk for Life on Saturday morning, June 11th at Normandale Lake Park in Bloomington. Invite your congregation to support the holistic, life-affirming ministry of New Life by walking with many others who want to honor life in the Twin Cities. This is an awesome opportunity for your church to support life and have fun while doing it! Our goal is to raise $100,000 through this event to propel us into the year ahead and we are hopeful that through the help of many, this can be achieved. If you’d like any promotional material (slides, posters, social media posts, etc.) to promote the Walk to your congregation, please email churches@nlfs.org.

Ways to participate:

– Invite your church leadership, small group, or another family in your church to form a team with you.
– If you have ministry teams, invite them to form teams and participate!
– Share this with your small groups ministry and encourage small groups to form a team.
– Share this event with families in your children’s ministry – this is our most-family friendly event and there will be plenty of kid-friendly activities!

PHILLIPS 

We’re so close to opening our fifth pregnancy center in the Phillips neighborhood in Minneapolis! With our grand opening on Saturday, July 23rd, we have plenty of upcoming opportunities to serve with NLFS. In the next two months, NLFS will need help moving into the facility, assembling the clothing closet, cleaning, building storage shelves, and more. We are also looking to fill our Every Family clothing closet with donations before we open.

If you’d like to, 1) promote these volunteer opportunities at your church and learn more details or 2) host a drive to help fill our closet with donations for our new clients, please email churches@nlfs.org.
