Psalm 145:4 says “One generation shall commend Your works to another.” At New Covenant Bible Church, we love the next generation and desire to see them raised for God’s glory. We seek to serve families who are raising teens to bring glory to God through Spirit-transformed lives by the beauty and power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Foundational Priorities of Youth Ministry…
The Glory of God. Whatever New Covenant does to serve families and teens must fulfill this purpose: to bring glory to God. One of the ways that we bring glory to God as a church is by helping parents and teens to be intentional about beholding God’s glory (2 Corinthians 3:18).
The Gospel of Jesus. As a church we seek to bring glory to God through Spirit-transformed lives by the gospel.At New Covenant, we want to assist parents in raising teens who will be gripped by the gospel. We want to help families to delight in the glory of the gospel and to live by the sin-conquering, fruit-bearing power of the gospel.
God-Given Means of Youth Ministry…
The Family. The primary means for youth discipleship in the Bible is the relationship of the family (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). At New Covenant we hope to serve parents by equipping them to do the work of the ministry of raising families to know, love, and fear the Lord. Parents are always welcome to join us during any of our activities or teaching times.
The Local Church. We also believe that the church should partner with families for youth discipleship. We look for ways that the church can equip and build up the saints who are youth (Ephesians 4:11-12). We also want to teach the teens that they are part of the church and should learn to use their gifts to serve the church. Our youth ministry is one good place for the teens to grow in their love for serving the church and developing godly friendships.
New Covenant’s Process of Youth Ministry…
Sunday Morning – 9:00 AM – Our main purpose in this hour is to equip teens with a better understanding of God’s Word. We do this through a mixture of lecture and group discussions. The middle school has its own class, but the high school students can choose an adult class to attend.
Wednesday evening – On Wednesday evenings, the youth group meets from 6:30-8:15. This is an informal time to hang out and study the Bible together.
Activities and Events - Throughout the year we have a variety of activities for the youth group. These include service projects, bonfires, game nights, mission trips, camps, etc.
