Food Cupboard
New Life Food Cupboard - open 2-3 days per month: 2nd, 4th and 5th Thursdays of each month, 9:30 am - Noon.  Every Super Bowl Sunday is our Cereal Bowl Sunday when we welcome donations of cereal.  The Food Cupboard is supported by New Life funds, Foodlink, Boy Scouts, and individual donors of food or funds.

Youth Group
Children and teens gather Sundays for activities and learning, usually at 11am followed by lunch and usually at church when Monroe Milers is not active.  However, some Sundays include field trips to parks, performances or movies at other times and places.  Teens are led by Katrina Hebb and Summer Sattora in religious topics.  Younger children participate in lunch making, games or crafts. Neighborhood children are all welcome.

Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (RAIHN) is a not-for-profit, interfaith, culturally-competent organization that assists homeless families to achieve sustainable independence by supporting them with tailored services including shelter, food, personalized case management, and a diverse network of caring volunteers.

Vacation Bible School
Happens every July on our front lawn, welcome to all children and adult blanket sitters.

Nicaragua Mission
Members travel to Telica, Nicaragua bi-annually to build a house and teach vacation Bible school.  We  went in January 2016 for the third time.
