There was a need for a Lutheran church in Bolingbrook and in March of 1969, New Life was the name chosen because of all the growth and new life springing up from cornfields. In March of 1970, we were an official church serving the Bolingbrook community. While the town might look very different, meeting the needs of people in Bolingbrook and surrounding communities has not changed.

POSTPONED - A celebration of the exact day, 50 years later, that we became an official ELCA church; March 15.
New Life has been gathering for meals in peoples homes for 50 years. We celebrate breaking bread together and building our connections one conversation at a time. Schedule TBD.
Summer Faith Project
New Life started by personally going door-to-door to talk with people and inviting them to experience New Life. We invite you to have a new adventure while sharing your faith in the community with a modern twist. Details to follow.
New Life started shortly after Bolingbrook was incorporated. We remain an active and visible part of the community. We would love to meet you at one of the many festivals and picnics held in Bolingbrook this summer.
Gods Work Our Hands
A whole weekend devoted to service in our community through many different types of projects like free car wash, park clean up, and picnic for local organization for adults with special needs. This will be taking place August 28-30.
Micro Food Pantry
Building on New Life's long passion for feeding the hungry, we will be partnering with a local school to provide and stock a micro food pantry for local families. Launching in September.
On November 1, everyone comes together for one worship service with ELCA Bishop Jeffrey Clements from the Northern Illinois Synod. This will be followed by the culminating celebration with catered luncheon.
