Our Outreach Ministries

Open Doors of Westfield
We continue to be a strategic partner with Open Doors of Westfield. They work to improve the quality of life for Washington Township residents through food and clothing assistance, referral to community services, and spiritual guidance.

Habitat for Humanity
We are building a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indy supporting their building projects in Central Indiana throughout the year. Their mission is to seek to put God’s love into action by building strength, stability, and self- reliance through home ownership.

Family Promise of Hamilton County
We have committed to help Family Promise, an organization committed to lifting families in our county out of homelessness. Family Promise recognizes that families experiencing homelessness in Hamilton County are in need of services including temporary housing, meals, transportation, financial literacy education, job placement assistance, mentoring, and affordable housing.

Food 4 Souls
Food 4 Souls serves our homeless community with unconditional love and acceptance by providing hope in Christ, meeting daily needs and aligning resources to those who are ready to move into a life beyond homeless.

Zanmi Fondwa
The mission of Zanmi Fondwa is to help families find stability through housing, education, and economic development and one of the ways they live this mission is to hire local people to build stable houses for those in the community. New Joy traveled and worked with Zanmi Fondwa on their 2019 Mission Trip to Haiti.

Mission Trips at New Joy

Mission Trips
We continue to look to partner with organizations to facilitate mission trips each year for members of the congregation, broadly focused under the umbrella of food and families.
