At New Church, we believe that no one has more potential to influence children than their parents. However, we also recognize that two combined influences have a greater impact than either influence alone. The home and the church partnering together have the greatest opportunity to affect the lives of children and adolescents for the cause of Jesus Christ!
Our goal is to partner with parents to fuel faith in the next generation! We want to help equip parents as they pursue their God-given responsibility to be the primary source of spiritual influence in their child’s life. New Church’s Next Generation Ministry approach is to provide a consistent second voice, so each of our programs are strategically designed with this philosophy in mind.
Every Next Generation volunteer has undergone a thorough background screening and has been cleared and approved to work with children and adolescents.
Newbies (birth – 4 yrs)
In Newbies, our goal is to help children Discover God at an early age. Babies from birth-12 months old are cared for and prayed over by nurturing volunteers. Toddlers (1-2 year olds), and Preschoolers (3-4 year olds) enjoy learning about God through songs, storytelling, and group activities.
NEWKIDZ (K5 – 5TH GRADE)
In Newkidz, our goal is to help children know God and to grow in their relationship with him and with others. We do this by providing age-appropriate experiences through lively singing, interactive storytelling, and small groups that are divided into three different age brackets: (K-1st), (2nd-3rd), and (4th-5th). All small group activities are designed to reinforce Biblical truths presented in the large group teaching time.
New Church Youth (MS – HS)
Because we believe our students are not just the future of the church, but rather a crucial part of what’s happening in the church now, they attend services in the auditorium with the adults each Sunday. Students are given opportunities to serve in volunteer roles as they are challenged to put their faith into action!
Students also meet in small groups with their peers on Sunday evenings to explore biblical truths presented in the previous Sunday’s message and discuss how to apply them to their specific stage of life. Monthly events are scheduled to bring students together socially outside of a Sunday morning church setting.
