Outreach – N.E.W. Ministry: N.E.W. Ministry stands for Neighbors Evangelizing by Welcoming. We will deliver welcome gifts to new members of the Windsor Locks and surrounding communities. This outreach is intended to show people that we care about them. If you have never done this outreach before, you’re encouraged to come out and try this low-risk, non-confrontational approach to letting people know about the Lord and our church. If you would like to distribute packets at another time than the above scheduled time, please le the church office know.
