Reconciled to be Reconcilers

God has called New Community to be “reconciled to be reconcilers”.
Here are some of the ways we are living out our mission in the midst of this pandemic.

Emotional Health and Community Support
If you are in need of emotional and community support during this season, we have several licensed mental health providers who are generously offering to share their skills with our community. Please contact for more information.

Sharing Your Story
As you experience God’s presence in this season, we invite you to share your story– as a testament to God’s faithfulness and encouragement to the community.

Love Our Chicago Neighbors During COVID-19
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the city of Chicago and its residents differently, we at New Community are committed to loving our neighbors by asking ourselves this question: “How might God be inviting us to demonstrate Christ’s love to our Chicago neighbors?” We’ve identified several specific groups of people that we want to invite our congregation to come around this season.

Check out these ways you can Love Your Chicago Neighbor!

Bless and Be Blessed Initiative
This initiative responds to the impact of COVID-19 by establishing a system for resource sharing for NewCom and beyond. Please take a few moments to complete this questionnaire to let us know both how you can support others and how you are hoping to be supported.
