New Hope Student Ministry exists to equip and empower middle and high school students to live out the Gospel together. We strive to create exciting environments that give teenagers opportunities to build relationships with peers, caring adults, and the God who loves them fiercely.


Normally, we'd gather together with all middle and high schoolers for a time of learning, games, and community building. However, until it is safe to meet in person again, we encourage all our families with middle and high school students to tune in to watch our online worship services together on Sunday morning. They are available here and updated every Sunday.


Wednesday night at Common Ground is centered on building community in small groups and helping students develop a spiritual appetite for God and His Word. Even during covid-19 we are striving to meet these goals. For the month of May we are premiering our lessons (and other funny videos/content) on YouTube every Wednesday at 6:30pm. Visit Experience New Hope to watch with us every week! Afterwards, students join a small group zoom call with their leaders to connect with and encourage one another. The links to those zoom calls are texted to students/parents the day of and are also posted in the description of that week's YouTube video.


We learned a little bit about spiritual gifts on Wednesday, May 27 at Common Ground (if you missed it, check it out at If you want to learn more about your own spiritual gifts and discover how God has perhaps uniquely designed you to be a part of His story, download this assessment and find out what some of your spiritual gifts might be!
