Arkansas River Flood Relief

As the nation’s attention turns to the Arkansas River, New Life Church is taking an active role in the flood relief effort. The Arkansas River flows throughout our state with many NLC campuses located in cities along the river. This record-breaking flood will leave behind devastation, but New Life Church will be here to serve. 

Arkansas is our home. Its people are our family.

New Life’s flood relief efforts currently include:

  • We are partnering with organizations such as World Vision, The Red Cross, Convoy of Hope, and 8 Days of Hope to bring in supplies and volunteers.

  • We are sending volunteers to shelters to care for families.

  • We are continuing to fill sandbags to protect homes and property.

  • We are working with officials to ensure our church is helping in the most needed ways.


  • Pray for protection for flood victims and relief workers.
  • Pray for the levees to hold.
  • Pray for the rain to hold off in flooding areas.
  • Pray for those displaced and whose homes and land have been affected.

The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever. May the Lord give strength to His people! May the Lord bless His people with peace! Psalm 29:10-11
