New Hope Student Ministry exists to equip and empower middle and high school students to live out the Gospel together. We strive to create exciting environments that give teenagers opportunities to build relationships with peers, caring adults, and the God who loves them fiercely.


We meet every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:45am in room 212. We play games, eat treats and dive into God's Word! Students are encouraged to join us afterwards at our 11am Contemporary Service!


Wednesday nights at Common Ground are centered around building community within small groups, helping students develop a spiritual appetite for God and his Word, and having fun! Wednesdat night CG will start back up on January 12, 2022. Check the calendar below for other student ministry events in the meantime!
