Youth Department

Preparing youth for young adulthood and fulfilling God’s purpose in the earth.

We believe in creating a space where Bible stories and Biblical principles come alive through engaging activities, fellowship, and amazing experiences. Through these principles and experiences, we assist in preparing our youth for young adulthood and fulfilling God’s purpose for them in the earth.

Our ministry is designed for children aged four to 18, providing age-appropriate and meaningful interactions for each group.

Events for Kids, Family and Friends

We know how to throw unforgettable events that bring families and friends together.

At our annual Back to School Bash, students not only receive bags loaded with school supplies, but they also enjoy exciting activities alongside their loved ones and friends.

We've also had the pleasure of hosting a writing workshop with New Life member and author Tunisia Williams, where our youth learned how to transform their creative ideas into captivating stories.

Let's not forget Hallelujah Night, a safe and family-friendly celebration that allows kids and their families to enjoy October 31st in an environment filled with fun, food, candy, joy, and love.

As the holiday season approaches each year, our Christmas Toy Giveaway warm hearts by ensuring every youth present receives one or more gifts ahead of Christmas.

These events are just a glimpse of the amazing experiences we create for our youth.

Field Trips

Throughout the year, we embark on thrilling field trips that go beyond the boundaries of our church walls. These outings offer hands-on educational opportunities, allowing our youth to discover their community, develop essential life skills, and unleash their creativity.

From exploring the artistic wonders at Artsy Me in Evans, Georgia, to stepping back in time at Calloway Plantation in Washington, GA, movie nights, and picking fresh berries at Gurosik’s Berry Farm in North Augusta, SC, we make sure each trip is filled with joy and wonder. We've even visited the beautiful vegetable and fruit gardens of our very own New Life member, Vera James! The adventures are endless, and the memories are priceless.

Community Impact

We strongly believe in giving back to our community. Over the years, our Youth Department has led and participated in initiatives that support organizations in the Augusta, GA community that focus on youth. From donations to the Children's Hospital of Georgia and Ronald McDonald House Charities to supporting Jamestown Elementary School student and teacher needs, we strive to make a positive impact and spread love beyond our church walls.

Get Involved

We are passionate about youth growing their relationship with God, nurturing their budding faith, fostering friendships, excelling in school, developing life skills, and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

We invite you to join us on this incredible adventure where faith, fun, family, and friends come together. Let's embrace the joy of discovering God's love in a way that speaks to the hearts and minds of our youth and parents alike. Visit one of our services, letting a greeter know you’d love to become a member of the New Life family and get your children connected with our Youth Department.
