The holidays are the perfect time to be generous. Starting in November and going all the way through Christmas, New Life and the nZone are partnering to spread generosity in the community and around the world throughout the holidays.
Adopt a Family for Christmas
Once again, New Life Christian Church welcomes the opportunity to provide Christmas gifts to families currently residing at a local shelter. Last year, New Lifers blessed 19 families with over 70 gifts which helped to ease their burdens and brighten their holiday. This year the number of families at the shelter has nearly doubled at 31, and they are humbly requesting 110 items. We are confident that God will move the New Life community to give generously to meet these needs.
Please stop by the tree in the lobby at the nZone on Sunday November 26th to pick up a gift tag with a client’s wish and adopt a family for this Christmas! Gifts are due on or before December 17th.
For more information contact Karen Lensing.
Breakfast for Dinner with Santa
Okay, I know you may be scratching your head. This is our twist on a holiday tradition. Instead of serving breakfast with Santa in the morning we decided to serve breakfast with Santa in the evening of December 9th from 4-7 pm! We are using this as an outreach to our community. In addition to breakfast, we will provide pictures with Santa and ornaments to every family in attendance. All for FREE!! We are looking for you to join us as a greeter, host, food prep, food runner, set-up/teardown volunteer. At a time of year when families are feeling stressed we want them to understand we desire to give & serve. Why? Because Jesus came to serve & not be served and gave himself up as a sacrifice for us. Make time, join us, don’t stay on the sidelines this year! Email for more info or sign up here.
Pictures with Santa
Looking for a few volunteers to greet people and assist our photographer for one of the four FREE Pictures with Santa nights at the nZone on December 4th, 6th, 12th and 14th. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to interact with the hundreds of people coming through the nZone who do not attend New Life or any church. We will have crafts for kids and invitations to our Christmas Eve services. If you have a few hours on one the days we would love to have you join us! Click here to sign up to help.
On December 17th from 1:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the nZone, come be a part of one of the most unique outreach opportunities of the Christmas season. Every year we invite children from a local under-resourced community to Christmas shop for mom & dad. Absolutely FREE! While the children are shopping & wrapping their gifts. Mom & dad will be enjoying cookies, snacks & refreshments in the Keg Room. We are looking for cookie bakers, greeters, elves, set-up & tear down/clean-up help. Don’t miss this great opportunity to serve & share the love of Christ in a tangible way at Christmas. Sign up here!
