New City Parish is a non-profit urban coalition of eight Evangelical Lutheran Churches located in Los Angeles, Inglewood, and Compton. As an organization, we focus on transforming our communities through collaborative, holistic ministries and social outreach programs. We seek to proclaim a message of hope, to advocate for the poor and marginalized, to teach people how to think critically for themselves, and to heal and comfort those who are hungry and suffering within our communities.

Thank You for Your Support!

New City Parish recently completed our multi-site Summer Camp named Everybody Matters.  Since June 23rd, three of our congregations have been hosting week-long summer camps for children within their neighborhoods. All camps were under the direction of  Aaron Tidwell and assisted by volunteers within each congregations. We served over a hundred children between the three sites. We would like to thank all those who made this camp experience possible. Without your continued support this camp experience would not
