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! We would love to have your family join us for our Sunday School hour, at 9:00am where there is a class for children of all ages. Currently we are offering classes during our 10:30am worship service for children 0-35 months during the entire service, and for children ages 3-6 after musical worship.

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, Kids Bible Club and occasional 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.


Join the Worship Team

If you have gifts that you would like to bring to the Worship Team, contact the church office at

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.
