What's New at New Life
CROP Walk »Allentown CROP Walk – Sunday, Oct. 12, 2014 In the last 20 years, CROP Hunger Walks have raised more than $294 million to help people struggling to feed their families – both around the world and around the corner. In fact, 25 percent of the funds raised by CROP Hunger Walks benefit the communities where they take place, by supporting local food banks, pantries, community gardens and other hunger-fighting initiatives. What makes CROP Hunger Walks different? They are community-based and interfaith. They have an impact locally and globally. And Walk donors may designate their gifts to other approved international hunger-fighting agencies. The 2013 Allentown CROP Walk raised $32,000.00! 25% of these funds are granted back here to the Allentown Ecumenical Food Bank and Lehigh County Conference of Churches Daybreak program. For 2014, we will carpool from New Life after the 10:15 service on Sunday, October 12, or meet at the front of St.Timothy’s Church at Ott Walnut St. Allentown at 12:45 pm. The walk starts promptly at 1:30 p.m. and generally lasts about two hours, covering 3.1 miles (5K). Please download the registration form below to participate.

Return your Estimate of Giving Cards »A Tool We Need to Use Thank you to the many New Lifers who have already completed and returned their Estimate of Giving Cards. This is a critical tool that we use to help budget for next year’s ministry. If you have not done so, please consider what portion of your income God desires for you to offer back to support his work at New Life, then complete and return your card to Debra Hunsicker, New Life’s financial secretary, right away through the church office. Only Debra sees the information and then forwards congregational totals to the budget planning team. Replacement cards are available through the church office. We’re counting on you - without this card it is impossible for us to responsibly budget for next year’s ministry spending. Download Estimate of Giving Card here (images/stories/Giving.pdf)
