Get Involved In A Group

“In circles not in rows is the way a person grows!” This somewhat silly phrase is a way to describe a deeply held conviction at Newday. In order to become a passionate follower of Christ, we need to grow. And people don’t grow best sitting in a row at church. People grow best in circles with other like minded people, looking one another in the eye, sharing one another’s journeys. This is the way Jesus grew His disciples. He gathered 12 of them and spent time with them, teaching them and encouraging them. If you want to get involved at Newday, and more importantly, if you want to grow, our groups are a great place to start. Contact us to learn more about how to connect with a group near you.

Get Involved Serving At Newday

Following Jesus means becoming a servant. Jesus said, “I have not come to be served, but to serve” (Mark 10:45). Serving at Newday doesn’t only give us the ability to follow Jesus, but it also gives us the opportunity to meet new people and work with fun teams. Below is a list of some of the volunteer positions currently available at Newday. Contact us for more information on how to get involved on a service team. We can help you find a great fit!

Newday’s care team seeks to demonstrate the love of Jesus in tangible ways to those with specific needs. More specifically, the Care Team provides meals and other forms of support during times of need to the Newday family and those close to us. Members of the care team also assist in preparation for communion services, baptisms and potlucks.

Get Involved Serving Our World

Newday believes in following Jesus outside the walls of our building to meet needs “Glocally” (we serve needs both globally and locally, thus glocally). From local community partners like the Parker Adventist Hospital and the Parker Task Force, to international partners like World Vision Rwanda and Global Health Initiatives, Newday can help you use your gifts and talents to touch your world here and abroad.
