Green Team

New Life, in the past, has had a group known as the Green Team. Green Team was a Lutheran Pioneer-like group, open for kids Kindergarten through Eighth grade. The Green Team met twice a month during the school year, and enjoyed a variety of different activities including the building of pine cars for an annual pine car derby. To restart Green Team, adult volunteers would be needed to run the program. Now would be the time to start planning for the 2017-18 school year. If you are interested in restarting Green Team, please contact Pastor Bauer.


Vacation Bible School will be held August 7-11.

Following Haiti's earthquake in 2010, several organizations in the WELS (WI Evangelical Lutheran Synod) responded with disaster relief and gospel out-reach. These efforts include nutrition programs and health care for eight orphanages. Lutheran elementary schools were established at three of the orphanages. In 2015, responsibility for ongoing operations of the schools was transferred to Branch Lutheran Schools of Haiti, Inc. a para-synodical, non-profit organization. The group has funded the schools since October 2015 and is committed to faithfully continuing and expanding the work in Haiti.

Currently, 200 students are enrolled from the orphanages and their surrounding neighborhoods. Instruction is provided for children preschool through grade five. The goal is to add more classes so children continue to receive education through age 18 when they must leave the orphanage. The orphanage directors are enthusiastic about the positive impact on the children and their community!

The bowling outing on February 19th served as a fundraiser for the school. Donations are still being accepted until the end of March. All monies will be matched dollar for dollar by National Mutual Benefit. If you'd like to contribute, please put your donation in an envelope marked "Haiti" and put it in the offering plate on Sunday morning.
