DOING GOOD is one of the five missional practices we learned about in our Joining Jesus on His Mission series. It’s why NewLife has partnered with a number of ministries to offer help, kindness, hope, grace, and the truth of Jesus Christ. 

If you would like to be part of the mission work at NewLife, please contact the church office or visit our My Church app.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) 

Flint Mission Network

As a congregation, we have a timely opportunity to redefine what it means to serve others. The needs are great in Flint’s east side and a partnership has been formed with Franklin Avenue Mission to help meet the basic needs of this community. It is our privilege as a church to be able to support this organization by serving alongside the workers, community members, and volunteers.

My Brother's Keeper Monthly Servant Event

NewLife has a wonderful missional opportunity to serve on the third Friday of each month. My Brother’s Keeper is a homeless shelter in Flint that provides a meal, a bed and a devotional time for men in need. For more than 10 years, we have had the privilege to serve these men by providing a warm, nutritious meal, sharing a devotional, and sitting with them around dinner tables.

Whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for Me.   ~Matthew 25:40

Feed The Hungry Collection

A special third Sunday offering is collected each month to support Our Savior Lutheran Church’s food pantry, Lamb of God Lutheran Church’s meals for the FAM Diner, and My Brother’s Keeper, a men’s shelter in Flint. Your generous donations help feed many in our community who would otherwise go hungry.

Puerto Rico Missionaries

Rev. James and Deaconess Christel Neuendorf serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as missionaries in Puerto Rico. Both have served as missionaries in this region since 2008, based in Panama and then in the Dominican Republic.

James serves as a church planter and pastor in the city of Ponce, Puerto Rico. His focus is to establish a strong Lutheran presence in this city which will boldly proclaim the Gospel and meet the physical and spiritual needs of a community that is hungry for the Gospel and for hope. As a deaconess, Christel is involved in the long-term disaster relief efforts at the mission’s various Casa de Amparo y Respuesta al Desastre (House of Refuge and Disaster Response) mercy houses. She is also engaged in assessing needs in the community and coordinating efforts to meet those needs as a congregation and mission.
