What to Expect

Sunday Gatherings, Come As You Are

You’ll find out quickly New Ground Church is pretty casual.  We come together to celebrate how God has been working in our lives, connect with others, and receive encouragement on how to live the way of Jesus in our world.  We do this through song, prayers, teaching, and connecting with others.  You’ll find we have people from all sorts of life experiences: socio-economic, religious, social, and age.  You don’t have to worry about dressing up; just come as you are.  In fact many times, our pastor is dressed in jeans and a shirt.  Enjoy coffee, lemonade, and doughnuts in the worship center, and feel confident with your children as we have programming for kids birth-5th grade.

You’ll find our teachings encouraging, challenging, and Scripturally informed.  If you want an idea, head to our Sermons page or subscribe to our podcast on ITunes or Google Play.

A Strong Emphasis on Children

We are a church that continues to value the voice of children.  The first Sunday of the month, we have all children stay in worship with us.  We also try to find ways to help our children be part of the life of our community worship.  We acknowledge that children and youth will be future leaders of our church, but we also want them to live in that now by providing opportunities where they are partners with us.

The other Sundays, excellent children’s programming is available during the service for children ages birth through 5th grade. Our classrooms are broken down into age-appropriate groups to ensure that not only do our children learn about Jesus, but have a fun time doing so! We invite our K-5th-grade children to worship with their family and then dismiss them to their classrooms — children Pre-K and under are in their classes for the entire service.

Please stop by the Child Registration / Information Desk in the lobby to check in your child or get for information. Please check out our Children’s Ministry page under the “Connect” tab to learn about our Children’s Safety Policies.

A 7-Day-a-Week Church

Church is not about a Sunday event, and it is not the building, but the people. At the center of New Ground is the desire to know God, discover our identity, develop healthy relationships, and serve others. We believe that our faith is a call to follow Jesus in every moment and every day. We are always asking the question, “How are we loving God and our neighbors today?” So come ready to be encouraged, challenged, and equipped to help bring redemption to this world—7 days a week.

A Community Church

We believe that we cannot walk the way of Jesus alone. We all need people to lean on at times, and be a support for others. This is why Scripture emphasizes the importance of the local church and the encouragement that comes from it (Gal 6:1-2; 1 Thes 5:18; Heb 3:13, 10:24-25). We walk out our faith in relationship with others throughout the week by engaging in Community Groups, Discipleship Groups, as-well-as Men’s and Women’s Ministries. You can learn more about these opportunities from the “Connect” tab.
