Children's Ministry

We love kids and we believe God works in and through kids in amazing ways. That's why we are so passionate about raising up kids in faith.

Faith Formation

One of the many things we are passionate about at New Day is raising up people of all ages in faith. We offer Faith Formation time Sundays after worship. This includes Sunday School for ages preschool-3rd grade and an adult study. Nursery will also be available for kids under 3. Youth are encouraged to come and volunteer to help lead, but the youth group will be meeting at a different time.

Youth Ministry

This past year, we had enough middle school and high school youth to start a small youth group. As most of our youth go to different schools and don't know one another very well yet, we're focusing right now on hosting one fun youth activity or event per month to simply get to know each other better. Some of these events have included roller skating, swimming, going to see a movie, going to I-Jump and anything else the youth come up with!


Several of our youth are also involved with worship on Sundays, serving our church community by singing or playing an instrument in the praise band, helping in the nursery, serving communion, etc.


Anyone 4th grade and up are welcome to join us for any event!
