New Heights started with phrases such as “Come as you are”, “No perfect people allowed”, “Love God & Love Others” and “We want to remain, God-centered, Bible-based, Spirit-led, Outward-focused and Community-minded.”
At New Heights we hope to create a safe place for folks to come to investigate the claims of Christ on their schedule and God’s timeline. When someone discovers a personal relationship with Jesus, we expect them to learn with us follow Christ in all things He has taught.
AWANA is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. AWANA is a
children’s and youth ministry that focuses on the Bible. Bible lessons are shared each
week Game time is always fun. A portion of the weekly sessions include AWANA
Book Time. Each age group has a book they will work through, as they progress awards
are earned and “AWANA Bucks” are given to spend at the AWANA Store we prepared 3
or 4 times throughout the year. AWANA is in session during the school year and meets
on Wednesdays from 6:15 to 7:45 PM. AWANA starts in the fall with those 3 year old
through Jr. High students.
Base Camps (Small Groups)
We want everyone at New Heights to be in a Base Camp. Base Camp ministry is for all
age groups from birth through our oldest adults. Sunday mornings the preschoolers and
children ministries have their Base Camps during the worship times. The Youth generally
meet on Sundays at 5:00 pm. We have adults meeting at various times at church and in
homes. Presently we have a women’s group that meet on Sunday morning after the 1 st
worship service. We have two groups that meet on Sunday evenings, a group that meets
on Mondays, a group that meets on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Periodically there will be
a short-term ladies study on Tuesday evenings.
