Go Groups at New Covenant Bible Church are a fun and transformative Wednesday night gathering that trains kids from 3rd – 5th grade to get involved in ministry through hands-on experience. Students who participate in Go Groups are pursuing a relationship with Jesus, and they’re committed in the same way that they’d be committed to a sports team. Go Groups meet Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00 PM during the school year.
Registration is now open for Go Groups for the 2022-23 school year through September 30.
Who can participate in Go Groups?
Go Groups are for 3rd through 5th graders who demonstrate a desire to follow Jesus, reflect it in their behavior, and are ready to begin serving in ministry.
To participate in these ministry teams, children and parents must demonstrate an ongoing commitment and full engagement, just as they would on a sports team. In addition to Christlike behavior at home, church, and school, Go Group expectations include regular devotions, Scripture memory, and regular attendance on both Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings. Just like in a sports team, leaders or kids who don’t meet these team expectations may result in dismissal from the team.
What Go Groups are available?
Serve-It-Up (Care & Service)
The Serve-It-Up Go Group practices the ways of Jesus in how we love and serve our neighbors, our community, and our church family. Practical and tangible, Serve-It-Up challenges kids to help those desperately in need as well as find exciting ways to encourage those who serve us: pastors, teachers, military, and other local heroes. If you want to lead like Jesus, this Go Group is a great fit!

Turn-It-Up (Worship Group)
Turn-It-Up helps children develop leadership skills in the area of worship. Using high-energy song and dance routines, the Turn-It-Up crew ministers during Sunday services and special events.
Grow-It-Up (Leadership Development) - This group now closed
Grow-It-Up! This leadership discipleship group teaches the basics of caring for small children as well as the fundamentals of leading young children individually or in groups. Best described as coaching-meets-babysitting-meets-parenting, Grow-It-Up is a perfect fit for kids who one day want to serve in NCBC Kids or be a camp counselor. The practical tips shared in Grow-It-Up help kids relate to their younger siblings or cousins, too.
