The mission of New Hanover Evangelical Lutheran Church is to utilize the dedication of our church family, the strengths of our programs, the resources of our facilities, and history of our congregation to serve as a beacon of worship, welcome, peace, and support for our community.
The vision of New Hanover Evangelical Lutheran Church is to love our neighbors as ourselves, and live and serve as an example of God’s Grace for our community and our world.
In spring of 2020, NHELC set out to tackle the challenge of addressing hunger in our congregation and community. Over 50,000 meals have been provided to homebound geriatrics, persons with low or normal income, and individuals in mental/substance recovery.
NHELC’s Garden of Hope project is the direct product of Loaves and Fishes’ efficacy and establishes a reliable food source.
In partnership with Trellis for Tomorrow, NHELC is a participant in the Food for All raised bed garden program. The Garden of Hope is a 3,000 square foot garden which engages a robust volunteer program which feeds the hungry, offers agricultural experience, utilizes church-owned vacant land, and inspires hope that creates lasting positive change.
Peer Support Recovery Ministry began in February 2020 offering one on one and group support to those experience mental health or addiction issues. This ministry is supported by NHELC and services are offered free of charge.
