The Children’s and Youth Ministry of New Community Covenant Church endeavors to provide a safe and engaging environment for families to encounter, embrace and embody the Gospel of Jesus Christ. By creating age-appropriate and biblically sound experiences for children, youth and adults to hear the Gospel, build relationships, and learn the active connection between faith and life, we join in the mission of the larger church in a way that is uniquely suited to families.
Ministry in Practice
Each Sunday morning, families are invited to worship the Lord in song together at the beginning of New Community’s 9:00 AM or 11:00 AM worship service. Following our morning announcements, children and youth are invited to Kid City OR Youth Group, our Sunday morning children’s & youth ministry programs. While adults remain in the church service, children are able to learn about the Gospel in a fun, safe, and age-appropriate context.
Our Kid City & Youth teams are comprised of volunteers (both families and from our congregation) who have undergone background checks and are trained to minister to the children and youth in their respective age groups. Each class utilizes curriculum to create an engaging lesson that focuses on a Bible story/study, creative activities and games.
While our Sunday morning Kid City and Youth programs are central to our ministry efforts, we are a growing ministry focused on developing more opportunities for our families and volunteers to be supported in spiritual growth, building community and living out faith through ministry service.
Developing a strong base of volunteer and financial support is critical to our growth. We need committed leaders to disciple the next generation.
