Help us help all
“I really missed worshipping together. I feel closer to God now that we have church.” “Thank God for our Food Ministry, you have fed our family of five children during this pandemic.” “I really appreciate your paying my water bill. After losing my job due to my cancer treatments, I couldn’t keep up with all my bills.” Through God’s help and your generosity, we have been able to serve over 350 families throughout this pandemic.
We finally resumed in person 11:00 a.m. Sunday worship at our church building on July 4th, Independence Day! Although COVID is still threatening us, with everyone vaccinated and wearing masks, we have not had a single viral outbreak at our church.
For those who do not feel comfortable about returning to in person worship, our sermons are on YouTube, Instagram, and our website, plus broadcasted on CPATV, channel 13, on Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. Fridays at 1:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 5:00 p.m. Because of your donations, our Food Ministry expanded during the pandemic, from once a week to four times a week. We do not require any paperwork for the 300 people who come weekly to our church for food.
Groceries are also delivered to refugees and elderly homebound, plus we share our excess with several local churches and low-income apartment complexes.
Although we have limited funds, the Lord has commanded us to help those in need spiritually and physically.
This year we provided $13,366 in emergency assistance for:
9 families and individuals facing eviction
104 tanks of gas for work, medical appointments, and food delivery
4 families whose gas, water or electricity was being disconnected
300 families with 130,000 lbs. of groceries (a 19% increase from 2020)
Reverend Greg’s Old Testament Bible study group has sent $4,764 to help orphans in Uganda, Kenya, and Colombia. Many children are abandoned, and orphanages are overwhelmed due to COVID-19 deaths.
We thank you for supporting our ministry of healing and hope to addicts, alcoholics, the homeless, ex-offenders, the incarcerated, gays, lesbians, transgenders, binaries their families and supporters. Those shunned by society and other churches have found a home at New Beginnings.
Remember our Lord’s promise,
“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and God will repay them for their deed.” (Proverbs 19:17)
