New Beginnings’ junior and senior high school student ministry is called 180 as a reminder that when we repent and put our faith in Jesus, we turn away (or “make a 180”) from our sinful desires and turn towards God.
We seek to provide a fun, safe and caring environment for 7th-12th graders — a place where they can hang out and be accepted for who they are while learning about the love of Christ. We want to reach the lost, connect with others, and honor God.
180 meets every Thursday from 6:00 pm to 8:15 pm at the church.
Acts 3:19: “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out…”
Our goal is building relationships and making disciples. Our ministry will not back down from hard questions. We encourage youth to ask questions and seek the truth. We strive to engage in the student's lives and point them to Jesus. We do this with fun games, awesome worship led by our youth and relevant biblical teaching.
What does a 180 night look like?
A typical youth group night at New Beginnings includes worship led by the teens, game time to help them get to know each other and build relationships, group prayer time where youth pray for each other, and a lesson. The lesson is designed to encourage discussion by utilizing small groups and open-ended questions that force youth to turn to the Bible for answers.
Lesson topics over the years have dealt with such things as systematic theology so that youth understand what the Bible says and how to find answers in the Bible. We’ve looked at the differences between Christianity and other religions, studied Pilgrim’s Progress, what the Bible says about conflict and money, and have gone in-depth on various books of the Bible. We also address what the Bible says about current issues – such as mass shootings, transgender issues, and even politics. The Bible is relevant to all of these issues.
On the last Thursday of the month, we hold a “Free-For-All” night where the discussion is based on questions youth bring.
We strive to partner together to grow as disciples; women helping women by pointing to Jesus.
Ladies Connect: We regularly meet for fellowship, sharing our stories, and relaxing together.
We regularly meet for fellowship and learning together. Join us from 10-12 every 3rd Saturday of the month (except December). In 2018 our theme is more and our material is from "The Emotionally Healthy Woman" by Geri Scazzero. No need to come every one - just show up when you can! (Childcare can be provided upon advance notice.)
Past events have included luncheons, Spa Day, and learning about our colors. Contact Karina House at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to request childcare for Ladies Connect.
Weekday lunchtime prayer: Join us as we pray for the women of our church every day as we eat lunch – whether at noon, before or after!
Bible Study: Women in our church are welcome to join our Ladies Bible Study on Wednesday mornings during the school year. See the church calendar for more details.
Retreats: Our district Great Commission Women offers 3 retreats a year. Although it involves quite a bit of travel, we do strive to attend Spring Refresh with as many women as we can each April.
Special Events: We plan and host special events according to the interests of the group. If you have ideas for an event you’d like to help plan, or would love to attend, please let us know! You can contact the steering committee by contacting Karina House at
