Help us love on the Phoenix community and bring the hope of Jesus beyond our walls! During New City’s “Love our City” day, we’ll have a wide range of service projects set up for volunteers to participate in, including: Habitat for Humanity, Phoenix Rescue Mission, Hamilton Elementary School, and more! You can review the project details below and choose the project you want to participate in during registration.
