At New Covenant United Methodist Church, our goal is to partner with families, congregation and community to raise up a generation of deeply committed Disciples of Christ. Our hope is to draw us all closer in our journey to become the hands, feet, and voice of Jesus. We believe in surrounding our children in a loving and caring community where all can be nurtured in a Christ-centered church. We offer mid-week programming, Sunday morning worship, summer camps, and community events for all ages. Scroll down to see what is happening in Summerhill Family Ministry!

Summer Programs / Events
Each summer New Covenant’s Youth Ministry takes two mission trips- One for high school and another for middle school. Summer mission projects provide opportunities for the youth to serve others by being the hands, feet, and voice of Jesus, while also strengthening their personal relationship with him. The locations for each mission trip vary from year to year; however, the relationships made and the spiritual growth experienced is always impactful.

Confirmation is a spiritual journey which gives young people the opportunity to affirm or to reaffirm their faith in God. This process takes place every Spring and consists of a series of classes, along with a retreat, focused on Methodist theology. Once confirmed in the United Methodist Church, your youth then becomes a member of New Covenant United Methodist Church.
