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.

Our students in grades sixth, seventh, and eighth meet on Sunday mornings at the 9 and 11 a.m. services during the school year. Thrive meets and sits together upstairs in the Worship Center in the section designated on the left side. After the worship time, students  head downstairs for a time of Bible study.

On Sunday, May 22, 2016, the middle school Thrive classes held question and answer sessions with Student Ministries Director Joel Friend and Senior Pastor Mark Bolton.
