Dear New Life Christian Church,

We thank God for you! Your gift to Vertical Church in 2011 is greatly appreciated.

Because of your contributions, our church has been able to support the work of Jesus Christ locally, regionally, and around the world.

How we impacted the West End/Vince City community of Atlanta, Georgia in 2011…

  • We hosted a campus cleanup on 9/11 (National Day of Service) at Morris Brown college, a college recovering from the loss of their accreditation years ago.
  • We have adopted N. Metro GNETS, an under-resources K-12 school in the West End to meets the needs of its students and staff. This school servces students with emotional and behavioral disabilities and is in desperate need of support (i.e. library resources, equipment and stduent mentors).
  • We supported a college student who taught conversational English in China through a 6-week teaching missions program.
  • We provided a gift basket for the GNETS staff after a week of intense monitoring & observation from the state department of education.
  • We worked with a local Barnes & Noble to host a fundraiser for the GNETS book drive.
  • We gave out over 45 college care packages with food, drinks and devotionals to college students. One student’s response: “You gave us real stuff.”
  • We have adopted a single parent family from the Vine City community for the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays and provided much needed food, clothing and household items.
  • We provided hats and gloves to children in the community by supporting the Keeping Kids Warm Project.
  • Over 120 hours of community service logged.

Once again, thank you for your generous commitment to the work of Jesus Christ through this church.

Living vertical,

Damian L. Boyd

Lead Pastor
