Year-End Staff Gifts

From the Session:  The Session would like to give the congregation the opportunity to give toward a Christmas year-end gift for the pastor and staff at New City East Lake. If you would like to contribute, please place your gift in the offering this Sunday. We will do our best to make sure they receive it before New Year’s Day. Thanks for your support.

Volunteer Opportunities

Blessings for the ELECT students: This year, the YMCA has organized buying gifts for all of our ELECT students!  These gifts were organized by families at the church but will need to be distributed.  This is a wonderful opportunity to get out into our neighborhood, get to know some families from our community, and distribute the love of Christ.  Please join us on THURSDAY, (12/20/17) from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the church as we share the love of Jesus with our community.

Encourage and Support East Lake Elementary School!  On ThursdayJanuary 4, 2018 New City East Lake is providing breakfast for the administrative staff and teachers of our community school.  We want to show our support and encouragement to this group of educators who teach and care for many children in our neighborhood and most of the children in ELECT and Expression Engine.  Please join us in preparing “homemade” breakfast foods, i.e., breakfast casseroles, cinnamon rolls, muffins; fresh fruits and juice.  We are also looking for volunteers to help set up and greet the folks at East Lake Elementary.  Volunteers will need to be available from 7:00 – 8:30 a.m. Please email the church office if you are willing to help and let us know what you can contribute; baked goods, fruit & juice or meet/greet the teachers.
