We believe practical acts of service are one of the best ways to show God's love. That's why serving our local communities is a big deal for us. We believe that we haven't just been called to have nice church services but that God wants to bless our cities through a community of people living out their faith in practical ways. We encourage people to get involved in their area of interest and volunteer for one of the many great initiatives and programs that are already existing in the local community. New Frontiers Church also provides a number of ways of serving our cities, whether it's clearing trash on Portsmouth's Market Square Day or serving at Dover's annual clean up day.
One of the things we are particularly passionate about is serving the under-privileged and needy, we believe it's an important part of following Jesus. So whether it's us supporting you in what you are doing, or you participating with us in what we are doing, together, we can have an impact.
Here are some of the things we are currently involved in:
Dover Apple Harvest Day
Every year we serve the City of Dover at Apple Harvest Day by doing any of the grunt work that they need done! From manning the customer service booths to directing traffic at the race, we're all over the place. Let us know if you want to serve the city.
From the people and the art to it's natural beauty and vibrant community, Portsmouth NH is a great city. And yet, many people feel disconnected from those around them and isolated from the community at large. While there is a desire to serve alongside others in the community, it is difficult to find an outlet. That's why we started REBUILD Portsmouth.
Rebuild is not community service - it's community renewal. Our goal is to serve the forgotten parts of the city we love. As we work side by side with neighbors and friends that we invite, we will see the community rebuilt, not only physically, but relationally and spiritually.
We started REBUILD in 2009 and have had a great time repainting the Connie Bean Center, the Portsmouth outdoor pool and doing much needed landscaping in some of the local parks. We are excited about the new ways we will be able to serve the city each year. Learn more by clicking here.
Restore61 is a non-profit we started to formalize our work with the disadvantaged on the Seacoast. The services we provide are informal and varied - from helping connect needy people with available services to providing food, clothing and temporary shelter to helping industrious homeless people start small businesses (and much more!) We are looking to see lives transformed, one person at a time. Find out more about Restore61 by clicking here.
