There is no such thing as "the New Life Church neighborhood". That neighborhood that Cafe Velo and Mission Roasters are in is known as "Trailridge" and is considered by some as a part of the greater "Northgate" neighborhood. And officially (according to the Colorado Springs city government) New Life Church is in the Interquest neighborhood.
New Life Church adds nothing to the neighborhood around it but traffic (and numerous traffic violators) and an ugly blue roof. Few of them who live outside the neighborhood patronize the local businesses. The Chinese restaurant next to Cafe Velo even started closing on Sunday due to the lack of business.
