New Life Students/Grow in Community and Reach the Community
This ministry meets every Tuesday from 6:45pm-8:00pm in the community room at New Life Church. Each week, during the school year, the students break up into small groups by gender. In the those groups the students share God’s word and how it applies to them. Students take an active role in leading these groups.
The Fourth Tuesday of each month, and during the summer, the small groups join together for different events. They might complete a service project together, enjoy a game night or just hang out and eat. What teen doesn’t want to eat?
NLC believes in getting students away from the noise of their every day lives. That’s why every summer our students travel to Pinecrest Camp in Fredricktown, Mo. for a week of youth camp. Students also take part in a weekend retreat in the fall, COG, Centering On God. In January students plan, and facilitate their own retreat.
New Life Teens take a mission trip every two years. Students have done mission work in Minnesota, Illinois, Tennessee, Missouri, Ohio, and Texas.
