Connection Center

Our online connection center is our way of describing everything that is available for you and your family to serve and grow in faith. We’re a vibrant church with God-centered ministries and Jesus-loving people. That means we are active, enthusiastic and enjoy spending time with one another, living out the Bible. From Sunday school classes to small groups, children and student events, volunteer opportunities and everything in between you can find it here.

Upcoming

Almsgiving at Bonhomme | April 7 

Harambee is a ministry of Restore St. Louis and it is the recipient of the Bonhomme Lenten Almsgiving. Harambee is a Swahili word which means “let’s pull together!” Harambee Youth Training has its roots in a small ministry of New City Fellowship Church (NCF), which began in 1996 to give job training and mentoring to a few young men. Today, Harambee has grown into a separate 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization which partners with many other local churches, businesses, and organizations. We use a combination of volunteer community service projects and classroom training to give at-risk urban youth an opportunity to learn a healthy work ethic, self-discipline, confidence, and team dynamics as well as profitable skills in the construction trades. For more details and to give, CLICK HERE.
