At New Denver Church, we care a lot about cultivating God-honoring, healthy relationships! Whether you’re dating, engaged, or married, we want to come alongside you to equip and support you. Some ways we do this are through fun events, groups, workshops, and retreats. For more information, contact Emily Schulz at [email protected].
Premarital Counseling and Weddings
We take marriage very seriously at NDC. Getting married is more than just signing a piece of paper! It’s entering into a lifelong covenant with God and your spouse. Our dream is that every engaged couple would spend more time and energy preparing for the marriage than for the wedding. Therefore, we require any couple wanting to get married at NDC or by an NDC pastor to complete premarital counseling before the big day. If you’d like more information about our premarital counseling process, please contact Stephen Redden at [email protected].
Couples in Crisis
We know that sometimes our relationships can get rocky, or may even feel like they’re falling apart. If you find yourself in this boat, know that you’re not alone, and that we’re here to help. We worship a God who is the master of redemption, and his heart is to redeem and restore all that has been broken. Our pastors are always available to listen to you and offer guidance, hope, and encouragement. We also see professional counseling as an incredibly valuable resource and are happy to refer you to a number of local counselors we know and trust. We’ll even help offset the cost, if that’s a barrier for you. To reach out to a pastor, or for more information about counseling assistance, contact Stephen Redden at [email protected].
The heartbeat of our ministry to kids and students is really our ministry to parents. At New Denver Church, you’ll hear over and over that what happens in the home is way more influential in the lives of kids and students than what happens at church. As parents, you are intentionally or unintentionally shaping your children every single day. Their values, beliefs, and character will be far more influenced by your example than by ours. It is your great privilege and responsibility to be the primary disciplers of your kids! Our goal is to come alongside you every step of the way. Practically speaking, we seek to equip parents through groups, workshops, tangible resources, and, most of all, relationships.
We have an amazing MOPS group for moms of kids birth – Kindergarten! This group meets regularly for community, encouragement, tons of practical ideas, brunch (yay!), and childcare (double yay!), all with the motto, “There are lots of ways to be a good mom!” If you’re a mom in this season of life and would like more information about how to get connected to MOPS, contact Emily Schulz at [email protected].
Note: The format of this group has been temporarily adjusted during covid, but is still doing some really cool things!
We strive to equip parents to be the spiritual leaders of their families. One way we support parents in this goal is by creating the opportunity for children to be involved in age-specific environments on Sundays that will encourage them to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and in community with one another. Each secure children’s environment is led by background-checked, trained, and fully covid-vaccinated volunteers.
Note: Babies and Toddler/Preschool (currently including Kindergarten) are reopened at the 10am service only. RSVPs are required. Masks are encouraged for kids ages 3 & up. Elementary will reopen at a later date.
If you have specific questions or would like to meet or speak to someone before attending, please contact Emily Schulz at [email protected].
Babies and Toddler/Preschool
The Babies environment is for children up to two years old. In this room, our volunteers play with and pray for your children.
The Toddler/Preschool environment is for children from two years old until they enter Kindergarten. In this room, our volunteers run games, crafts, worship, and a Bible story.
The Elementary environment is where children from Kindergarten through 5th grade meet in a blend of small and large group settings to learn about God and the Bible, have fun, and build friendships with other kids and adult leaders. In Elementary, we journey through the Big God Story, learning about who God is, how He has related to people throughout history, and how each of us has a part to play in His story!
NDC Students is our ministry for middle and high school students (6th-12th grade). At New Denver Church, we believe that parents are the primary spiritual developers of their children. However, we know that as kids get older, other relationships and influences begin to take a more prominent role in their lives.
The goal of NDC Students is to come alongside families to support the spiritual development of students at this critical point in their faith journey as they begin to form their own personal relationships with Jesus Christ. We accomplish this through a combination of Bible study, worship, community, events, and service. For more information about how to get connected with NDC Students, feel free to contact Blake Brunner at [email protected].
NDC Students meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30pm at NDC to play games, eat snacks, read Scripture, and discuss faith and life.
In addition to our weekly gathering, we organize regular special events where students can invite their friends and connect with one another.
