New Life Community Church organization service

Classis Hudson celebrates God’s gracious provision to New Life Community CRC of Staten Island, NY which was able to install its first elders and deacons in a joyous worship service on July 6, 2014.  Rev. Hong Kim, pastor of the church, presided over the installation which was attended by a number of guests from various churches in our classis and beyond.

It is our prayer as a classis that God would richly bless the ministry of New Life Church and the leadership of Rev. Kim and the officebearers, to the glory and honor of Jesus Christ in the Staten Island community.
