At Work in the Community
Streets of Hope Homeless Shelter
On the 3rd of each month, New Light Lutheran Church gets busy in the kitchen whipping up a delicious meal for those staying at the homeless shelter! You can help out too! Sign up in the hospitality room at church.
Christmas Boxes for Seafarer's International
Seafarers are away from their families for months at a time and often on their own for the holidays. New Light joins in the effort to put together shoeboxes full of items to make their Christmas celebrations a little brighter. You can help to collect these items by signing up at church.
In partnership with the social worker at a local elementary school, New Light will provide thanksgiving dinners with all the trimmings to 10 families in need in our community.
Gifts that Make a Difference: Global Barnyard this Christmas
This Christmas we are working to make a difference in the world by partnering with ELCA Good Gifts. Ornaments featuring different animals are on the Christmas Tree and worshipers are invited to take an ornament and make an offering of the amount requested. The church will forward your offering to the ELCA who will bring that animal to a family around the world who needs it. Imagine the difference a flock of chicks could make to a family- a source of food and income for years to come! Learn more here:
