Living on Mission

Living on Mission means...


     • Developing as Christ-followers pursuing full devotion to God

     • Reaching out to those who may be far from God

     • Offering tangible expressions of compassion into our city

         and through strategic partnerships in the world


                  ...individually, as part of a small group, and as a church. 


We encourage one another to be involved in the community through volunteering with non-profit organizations and other charitable causes. Some serve individually or invite their life group and other friends to join them. New City partners with: 


        The Compton Initiative www.justdogood.org.  


    Global Mobility         LAMA        Family Promise South Bay


         Royal Family KIDS            Treasures             ZOE International

SERVING

Volunteers serve each Sunday to prepare a welcoming space for worship and fellowship.  Connect with others as part of a team:   


Hospitality Teams:

 

Greeters and Ushers welcome people as they enter for worship and assist people in finding their way and getting acquainted. What a great way to meet people!  


Set Up/Take Down  After worship stray papers and pens in the worship center and recycle, take down signs. Help with re-setting the stage and equipment is needed. 


Audio/Visual Team:

Run slides, videos and/or lighting. AV Team members rotate serving about once a month. No experience necessary. Training provided. 


Refreshments: 

Take turns with other to pick up donuts or provide other baked good and snacks for Coffee Hour.

LIFE GROUPS & Spiritual growth

Spending time with other Christ-followers is crucial for spiritual growth. A variety of types of groups are provided as opportunities for growth in community. Some groups are just few people catching up over coffee, while others are small groups that gather for dinner, Bible study, and prayer.  For help in finding a group or study to try, contact Melinda Ige.

CHildren's Ministry

We want the habits created in a child’s most formative years to be carried on into adulthood, and believe that children attending church with their families is an important aspect to this. Children ages 4 and up go to the Worship Center with their parents for the initial part of the worship service. (Nursery care is provided by children 0-36 months)  After the children’s sermon, children go with their teachers to their classrooms for Sunday School. After the service, parents pick up their child(ren) at their classroom, matching the number on their child's name-tag with theirs.


Children's Ministry also creates events designed specifically for families. And many activities are designed so that children are easily included. Keep an eyeout for announcements of opportunities throughout the year.
