Come check out Student Ministries at NCC!

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.

Edge: Middle School

The Edge is a large group gathering of our middle school students. The purpose of this time is for students and their friends to laugh with each other and learn something new about God. We value every middle schooler who walks through the doors, and we use our time to get to know them and their friends.

The Edge meets from 6 - 7:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings at New Community during the school year. We will resume Thursday, September 21!

Contact student ministries with any questions.


Revolution: High School

Revolution is a large group gathering of our high school students. Our time is designed for students and their friends to find a place in our community and a purpose in their relationship with God. We want our high school students to know they are not alone, because God is with them and we want to walk with them throughout their high school years.

Revolution meets from 7:15 - 9 p.m. on Thursday nights at New Community, during the school year. We will resume Thursday, September 21!


True North is a monthly gathering of our entire Student Ministries which happens on the last meeting of every month from 7 - 9 p.m. at the church building. It's a night where all 6th-12th grade students gather to hang out, have fun, worship in song, hear testimonies from their peers, and pray for their communities. Come check it out during the school year!
