Local Outreach

Congratulations, New Life: Olive Crest 2023 Church Partner of the Year!
We believe that God has a heart for the city and we should too. Local Outreach is discovering everyday opportunities to impact your friends, neighborhood and workplace in Artesia, Cerritos, and the wider areas of Long Beach and Los Angeles with the transforming reality of Jesus.


A key initiative at New Life is our weekly food distribution. Every Saturday, volunteers serve between 100-250 families. We partner with the Food Bank and collect donations from church members, city organizations, other churches and beyond. Together we are working to feed the hungry.

We are always looking for food donations. This month we are in need of: cereal, mac-n-cheese and peanut butter.

Donations can be dropped off at the sheds on Friday mornings from 8-10am or in the brown bins on Sunday mornings.


Quarterly throughout the year, you have the opportunity to pray and give as we collect a special offering (spare change, cash, and checks) for our local outreach initiatives. We encourage people to collect their change (coins) throughout the year and bring them in during our quarterly offerings for the purpose of seeing change (impact) in the local community. Here are some of the organizations we partner with:

Kingdom Causes Bellflower
Every year we assemble hundreds of hygiene kits for Kingdom Causes Bellflower, a local outreach to those in our community experiencing homelessness. Each hygiene kit contains over 25 items including snacks, water, and an array of personal hygiene necessities. Kingdom Causes provides resources and assistance for local neighbors in need, and we are proud to partner with them throughout the year on various projects.

Olive Crest
Olive Crest works to prevent child abuse by serving at-risk kids and families in our community. We support, host, and sponsor various initiatives and events with Olive Crest throughout the year, including their annual Easter Egg Hunt Event. It is an honor to serve Olive Crest and the great work they do for children and families in our community.

Forgotten Children, Inc.
It is the mission of Forgotten Children, Inc. to rescue and restore victims of human trafficking in Long Beach and surrounding areas. We are proud to support their service to vulnerable women, men, and children in the name of Jesus.

Holiday Outreach

During the holiday months of November & December we have many community outreach programs. These programs include Thanksgiving Food Drive: a food drive for the Thanksgiving holiday to give more than 150 families a complete Thanksgiving Meal. Wrap-A-Family: in partnership with Olive Crest, we fulfill the Christmas lists and holiday meals of several at-risk families in our immediate area. Christmas Stockings: Every year we fill hundreds of stockings with toys, gifts, and more for residents of the Long Beach Rescue Mission to receive at their holiday party. We also support other various holiday initiatives of our local partner organizations.
