Intended for high school teens and university students, New City Church’s youth and young adults’ ministry prepares students to be followers of Christ and meaningfully engage our culture.
We believe that Christianity is worth thinking about, and Jesus is worth centering our lives upon. So we gather to consider these things, and to evaluate all things in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We'll open the Bible to see what it says, and we'll compare and contrast it with other major worldviews (Islam, postmodernism, secular humanism, Marxism, and New Age beliefs) in media such as movies, TV, news and music. We'll also examine how we are to interact with them as Christians.
NCC Youth generally meet on the second and fourth Fridays of the month:
(1) the second Friday of each month features a 30-minute session, followed by Q&A, and
(2) the fourth Friday screens a movie or video, followed by group discussion
