    Gals in 6th-12th grade and their moms (or other female figure in their life) are invited to come to brunch and be encouraged as we celebrate Valentine’s Day! There will be games, a photo booth, laughter, and a time of teaching. Please RSVP online so we have enough food and other supplies.

  • Pulse High School Retreat

    March 1-3    Seneca Hills Bible Camp

    Pulse is a weekend discipleship retreat designed for high school students to grow deeper in community with one another and in their love for Christ. Our hope is that this weekend will give students a deeper focus on what it means to live and love like Jesus in their communities, in their families, and in their schools. The early-bird price is $99 through February 9. Then the price increases to $125 until the final deadline on February 16. Space is limited, so be sure to register soon!

  • Appalachia Mission Trip

    June 16-21, 2019

    For the past eight years, our church has served in the White Hall area of West Virginia. We have built an incredible relationship with Dave and Beth Luffy, who serve the people of their community through their ministry center, More Grace Outreach. Outside of our yearly mission trip, our church has helped to provide over a thousand bags of clothing for their center, food for their pantry, and toys for their donation center. This happens because of the mission trip we take every summer to help the people they minister to on a weekly basis. Please consider joining us this summer! Register here.

    If you need more information before deciding, please attend the informational meeting on Sunday, February 17.  

We are the youth!

We love our students! This moment in life can be both amazing and hard, and our community of students have shown love for each other and for spreading the love of Jesus to our community and beyond.

The vision of New Community Church Student Ministries is to guide students to Know God and Make God Known.  We seek to accomplish this through prayer, scripture, service, community, and worship. As we pursue that vision, we pray that God will transform our students to be HOLI:

Humble Owners of their faith, Loving people of Integrity

This is not just a vision. Parents are seeing this become a reality in their students' lives and they express their gratitude for the role that Adam and Joel play in their students' lives.
