"Now, more than ever, we no longer just GO to church. We have an opportunity to live up to our calling and BE the church."

- Pastor Tom Kang

Every crisis is an opportunity to share God’s love by tangibly serving those who are affected by it. Although we are carefully entering into a post-pandemic season, there are still significant needs, concerns, and suffering that are affecting individuals in our church and our community. As a church, we remain rooted in the love of God and the hope we have in Christ Jesus. We are reminded in Matthew 25 that we are called to love and serve the least of these, as though we were serving Jesus. 
The needs around us will be constantly evolving as new challenges arise and the seasons change, but our call to BE the church -  the presence of Jesus' mercy, compassion, and hope - will not change. We will continue to update the resources and services we have available, as well as the needs that are most pressing and the opportunities we have to give and serve. We want to meet you where you are at in this time - whether that means you have something to give, or you are in a place where you have a need. You are welcome at NewStory Church!
