Our Opportunity to Help Victims of Hurricane Katrina

New Life Church has the opportunity to send short term teams to help with clean-up and rebuilding from Hurricane Katrina.

In partnership with Delta ministries, we can put together a team from New Life Church and join hands with a local church either in Mississippi or Louisiana. Teams would last 8 days and cost $650-$850/ per person plus airfare. We can go as soon as possible and any week until the end of the year. You can read a MS Word file of a letter from Delta to the leaders of our church by clicking here. It describes this opportunity in more detail.

This partnership involves New Life Church, Delta ministries, CBAmerica, Forward Edge and select local churches in the affected areas. Forward Edge has been given a $1,000,000 matching grant, which means that if you want to give through them your gift will have double value. Then, and this is one of the best parts, some of the money from that grant has been given to CB churches as project funds for use on these short term teams.

If you have questions or wish to volunteer you can leave a comment below or you can call the church with questions.

What an opportunity to actually put feet to our talk and show God's love to those truly in need! I hope NLC can send teams this year and next to help in the rebuilding of lives there.
