History

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.

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.

Community Gatherings

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.

Tutoring

This ministry has been a part of New Life for over 20 years! We are looking to expand ministry so that no child is left on the wait list and more can benefit from the one-to-one academic help and positive encouragement. Planning now for the 2020-2021 school year.
