New Light Ministries

These are some of the New Light Ministries that you might like to be involved with, including a contact phone number for the organizer.

LGBT Library:

New Light MCC maintains a LGBT themed Library. We have fiction, non-fiction, and reference books available. If you'd like to borrow a book, please feel free to do so. It doesn't cost a thing. Also, if you have an LGBT themed book suitable for the church library that you would like to donate please see one of our co-pastors.

Food & Friends:

Delivers groceries to persons debilitated by the effects of HIV/AIDS. Alternate Saturdays in conjunction with the food pantry. Drivers needed. Volunteers are scheduled in rotation, presently once every six weeks. All welcome.

Food & Friends currently has an opening for two more drivers. Contact Bruce Brooks at if you can help.
