Our communities help us to connect and grow in smaller groups.
We invite you to learn more and to reach out to our team leads.
When kids have fun at church, they cannot wait to come back and bring their friends! We value creating fun, safe environments where kids can learn about Jesus through games, activities, music, laughter and interactive experiences. Read about our New Community Kids Values and Safety Guidelines. Joining us for the first time? Learn more about what to expect here.
Ages 3 months–preschool: We offer a program for your child for the whole service.
Kindergarden-5th grade: Kids join their families for the beginning of worship and then go with leaders to their own program before the sermon starts.

Middle school and high school students
We want every student to feel and know they are loved by God and that there is a place for them at New Community Church. In much of our lives, there is a lot of focus on what we do. In our Student Ministry, we remind kids that it is enough to be.
Middle School: Meets Sundays at 10:20 upstairs in our student room (depart from worship service). Contact: Justin Verbo
High School: Meets every Wednesday in the Fireside Room between 8 pm-9 pm. Contact: Jaron Cheung
All young adults age 20+ are invited to join us every Wednesday evening, 6 pm, at the Creative Studio just off the parking lot. We’ll enjoy food, talk about life, and get to know each other. Home Groups are also meeting in San Carlos, Menlo Park, and Mountain View. On Sundays, we meet for lunch after the service. Sign up here to learn more.Contact: Jaron Cheung
Spiritual formation & Discipleship
Jesus invites us into a way of life. Following him doesn’t mean we are perfect, polished and complete. It means we trust him with the care and feeding of our soul. Your soul is that central aspect of you that makes you, you! Your soul informs decisions, interprets events, manages experiences, negotiates relationships and develops character.
Our spiritual formation and discipleship team holds mini-retreats and classes. We also sponsor the annual Women’s Retreat. You can find current offerings on our Events page. Contact: Team leads Ann Carter and Dave Peterson.
Our team discerns how we as a church can best come alongside our local community through prayer and lively conversation. We’d love to have you in the conversation. Are you part of a group that serves in the community together? Please let us know. Our greatest value is supporting the programs our that the NCC community supports. Contact: Katharine Sherwin, team leader.
Worship & Music
Worshipping as a community is a transcendent experience that brings us closer to each other and to God. We invite you to learn more about worship and volunteering in worship or tech at New Community Church. Contact: Associate Minister Aisea Taimani.
