Community Service Schedule
At New Life, living our faith out in the community is part of who we are. We go out to meet our neighbors, know our community, and serve.
Several Sundays a year, we make our service part of our worship - worshipping together on the land and moving out together to serve, having communion at the work site - the work is part of our liturgy. Projects fall under two umbrellas: EARTH & NEIGHBOR, following our mission statement: "Sharing God's love outwardly in community and outside in nature.
In addition, we have ongoing weekly, monthly, and annual service projects that happen on other days of the week, plus special collection times. Below is a working schedule for the coming year--mark your calendars and stay tuned for details!
