Crossroads_1

This week, New Church Youth, is attending Crossroads Summer Camp!

We’re praying for our middle school and high school students, as well as their counselors, to have fun and make memories, but most importantly, we’re praying for God to work in their lives in a special way!

We don’t look at our students as the future of our church.  We see them as influencers and change agents in our church, and in our community, right now!  Join us as we ask God to do BIG things in each of their lives this week while they are away!

Summer Series

June 20, 2014

Join us this Sunday at 9 AM or 10:30 AM for our Summer Series! Over the next few weeks, you’ll hear from a variety of speakers, and we’ll have fun stuff planned for everyone in attendance!

If you’re thinking about checking out New Church for the first time this Sunday, we would be honored to have you as our guest! You’ll find a place with friendly people, excellent children’s environments, rock’n music, and practical teaching!

Check out the teaser video for our Summer Series below…

At New Church, we believe water baptism is an outward demonstration of an inward decision a person has made to follow Jesus. For us, that’s a big deal, so we like to celebrate by making it a party! Check out the video below of our most recent baptism party:

FIGHT on Father’s Day

June 12, 2014

Fight GraphicThis Sunday, on Father’s Day, we’re wrapping up our current series, FIGHT, by giving stuff away!  One lucky father in each of our services will take home a gift, and every man in attendance will receive something special to remind them to fight for the things that matter most!

We’ll also finish the story of Samson as we learn how to bounce back from failure and regret!

If you plan to attend New Church for the first time this Sunday, we would be honored to have you as our guest! You’ll find a place with friendly people, excellent children’s environments, rock’n music, and practical teaching!

Pride will prevent you from learning from your past.” (from Wk. 3 of the FIGHT series)

In BetweenWhen we hear the word “faith” it conjures sort of a fluffy, soft, ambiguous idea. We throw the word faith around so much, but do we really understand what it means, what it looks like, and how we should live it out?

In this three-week series, MS/HS students in New Church Youth will follow the faith journey of a teenager named Evan as he struggles with what his new decision to follow Christ really should look like in his everyday life. He interacts with friends who support him and others who reject him as he navigates through his newly found faith. During this series, students will learn how to have faith even when it’s not the easiest or the most popular thing to do.

Below is this month’s schedule for New Church Youth.  If you have any questions related to NCY, you can email our Student Ministry Director, Joshua Black, at joshblack.newchurch@gmail.com:

FriendshipThis summer, children in our Newkidz environment (k5-5th) will learn about Friendship!

Friendship is treating others the way you want to be treated.  Each week, we’ll take a look at a “one another” principle that gives us a framework for loving others the way God loved us.

This month’s memory verse is: “Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” (1 John 4:11 NIV)

When you get angry, ask yourself this question, ‘Is my anger a result of my actions?’” (from Wk. 2 of the FIGHT series)
