Get Involved & serve others!

There are many ways at New Joy Church to meet new people, grow friendships, and serve others in our community.

Click to check out the following opportunities:

Adult Ministry 
(Starting September 13th)
Family Ministry

We desire to partner with families in order to reach, and teach, kids for Christ. Our purpose is to model Jesus, and create a place for kids to meet and know Him.


From our Sunday School curriculum to the Kid’s Adventure Bibles, we want to make God’s Word practical and accessible to every kid! While we offer Sunday School classes for the kids during our 9am service on Sunday mornings, we also offer our Kids Worship program (Kindergarten through 5th grade), during the message of our 10:30am service.


We also have other events during the week that are geared towards engaging children and their families, throughout the year. Those events include things like Vacation Bible School every summer, Kids Club and Kids Choir seasonally, and quarterly Family Nights at the church!

Worship Ministry

The Worship ministry is a place where people bring their music, drama, and all forms of art to God and the community of faith. As God gives talents, we seek to use them for praise and adoration to Christ our Lord!

The New Joy Worship Team desires to use all areas of the arts, including music, drama, video and dance to present special experiences on a regular basis.

Axis Youth Group

Wednesday night youth group is a relaxed environment where students grades 6th - 12th can feel comfortable to come as they are.  This is a low-pressure time of fellowship, games, and learning that meets every Wednesday evening in the Youth Rooms (13 & 14). Join us from 6:45-8:15pm during the school year. See our church calendar for special meeting times and events during the summer months.


Our hope as a ministry is to:

Gather -provide an environment that students enjoy coming to, and are comfortable asking others to join them in.

Know -develop Christ centered relationships between students and leaders that encourage sharing life’s struggles and celebrating victories together.

Grow -provide a time of Biblical study, sharing, and prayer, in order to foster and grow relationships with Christ; both as a group and as individuals.

Go -encourage students to take the lessons and tools that God has given them, to go out into the world and change lives for Christ.
