The Women’s Ministry at New Beginnings is for all women – no matter your age, background or life stage. We want to meet ladies right where they are and come along side them – encouraging, supporting, praying and equipping them in their journey with God. We seek deeper, Christ-centered relationships with each other through women’s fellowships and mentoring. We seek to encourage and equip women to faithfully and fully use their God-given gifts to glorify God. As we worship and serve the Lord together, we want every woman to feel loved and accepted for who she is in Christ so that she is transformed and empowered to live out Christ’s love and grace.
Children's & Youth Ministry
Our Children’s/Youth Ministry desires children to encounter God, His works, and develop healthy lifestyles and relationships. Our mission is to have children experience the presence of God by investing time each week in worship, sharing, hearing testimonies, and learning how the Word of God impacts their lives on a daily basis. Our desire is for them to learn who God says they are and for them to grow to be all that God has called them to be.
Our home mission department serves as one of the outreach arms of our church. It seeks to bring the light and hope of God to others who may not be able to attend our church services regularly. Through the arm of the Home Mission department, we take our services to the homes of members who are no longer able to attend services, provide periodic Prayer in the Park services and ministry to local homeless shelters. We know that not everyone who needs to experience the love of God will come to our church building. However, our goal and aim is to take the love of Christ to them.
The ministry of ushering is a crucial part of worship because it is one of the most visible ministries in the church. In Christ, you have received God’s unconditional love, and, in Christ, you are called to extend that same unconditional love to others. Although an usher’s love is no stronger than the love found in the whole congregation of the body of Christ, nevertheless the usher performs a major role in ensuring that people see and experience that love.
The ministry of ushers can be summed up in a few words – making people feel welcome at church, assisting Pastors and teachers with people management, assisting with seating, collecting offering, and maintaining a safe environment.
The Men’s Ministry at New Beginnings is for all men. We want to meet men right where they are – encouraging, supporting, praying and equipping them in their journey with God. We seek to encourage and equip men to faithfully and fully use their God-given gifts to glorify God. As we worship and serve the Lord together, we want every man to feel accepted and welcomed in the house of God. Our desire is to equip men to be leaders in their homes and communities and to take a bold stand for Christ in every walk of life.
