New Life Church wants to be a blessing, not only to the people who walk in our doors each Sunday, but to our entire community. We do this by serving others and sharing the love of Jesus. 


There are many ways to serve others through our Community Outreach team, Helping Hands ministry, and our Celebrate Recovery program. 


The New Life Outreach team strives to be a blessing to the City of Lakewood through partnering with local businesses, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and other organizations by providing them with volunteers for various events they may have throughout the year.


You can find current volunteer opportunities on our New Life Church Outreach Ministry Facebook page.

If you have any questions or know of any opportunities around the city, please email our Director of Community Outreach, Eric Stephens eric@lnlc.org 


In May 2016, NLC launched the Helping Hands ministry to serve the homeless in the Cleveland area. We partner with St. Malachi’s house in preparing and serving meals and every Saturday we send a team of people to St. Malachi’s with prepared lunches that we serve to 100-120 people.

We also partnered with Laura’s House (City Mission shelter for women) by serving meals every third Sunday of the month, and with Crossroads (City Mission shelter for men) by serving meals every fourth Sunday of the month.



Celebrate Recovery is a Christian based 12 step recovery program powered by Jesus Christ and the perfect word of God. It is continually growing, expanding, and evolving to reach people right in the midst of their Hurts, Habits, and Hang-ups.

Celebrate Recovery offers a healthy, open, safe, and welcoming place to recover from the trials of life. All are welcome to experience healing through Jesus Christ.


We meet every Thursday, starting with a free meal at 6:30 pm followed by the meeting at 7 pm and ending around 8:30 pm.
