In 2007, the completion of the long-anticipated project that culminated in the 43rd district was the grand opening of the Dorothy M. Higgins Community Center. The Center's heart focuses on spiritual enrichment programs and community outreach initiatives that provide social, economic, and educational programs and services.
The Center hosts a multitude of activities, such as a Youth Development Center, Senior Community Activity Room, and other facility amenities to accommodate the community's growing necessities. New Christian works in partnership with the community to engage the senior population by encouraging active and healthy lifestyles through our senior's program designed to provide recreation, education, and a place of worship that helps other adults.

As a dynamic speaker and great leader, Pastor Walter Bronson, Jr.'s pastorate features innovations, first, and unique contributions.
The following are some of the highlights of the achievements and contributions under his leadership:
Under the pastorate of Dr. Bronson, New Christian has been instrumental in the lives of ministers such as the late Elder Martin Jacob, of Shiloh Christ Deliverance Church; Reverend Jimmy Baldwin, who now pastors Shiloh Christian Community Church; Reverend Edward Ferguson, now pastor of the New Life Church; the late Reverend Dwight Caldwell and Reverend Tyrell Lassiter was youth ministers.
During his services, Pastor Bronson has exhibited personal concern for all by using his skills and resources in the area of counseling and guidance. Standing ever by his side are his devoted wife Irma, his children, and his grandchildren.
The loyalty and contributions of the membership and our friends through the years have been great. The horizon of New Christian Memorials’ future is still greater. We are proud of our Youth, who are the church of today and tomorrow, which must convey our hopes and aspirations in the future. Ministers at New Christian Memorial Church who support the pastor.
Reflecting over the journey we have come, we surely cannot take credit, we feel like Paul in his letter to the Corinthian Church, “I have planted, Apollo’s watered, but God gave the increase.” We resolve to rededicate ourselves to the service of God and do more for the building and glorification of His kingdom.
