Rooted Student Ministry


Rooted is a ministry committed to the discipleship of the students at New Castle Bible Church. Our mission stems from the words of the Apostle Paul in Colossians 2:6-7: “Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.”

It is our desire to see the seeds of the gospel take root in the lives of our young people through the teaching of God’s Word, thereby establishing mature disciples with a strong faith and effective witness.

We believe student ministries plays an integral role in our church’s vision to grow deeper and reach farther. As such we seek to expose students to the truths of Scripture, equip them for service in the local church, and send them out as lights into their schools and communities.

To learn more about what we believe about student ministry, we encourage you to view our “Philosophy of Student Ministry” page. We also encourage you to follow our ministries on Facebook to stay current on all news and events.

Jr. High and High School

Our junior high and high school ministries meet each Sunday morning (9:30-10:30am) in the Intersection to sit under the teaching of God’s Word. We are currently studying the Fruit of the Spirit.

Our ministries also meet every Wednesday night (6:30-8:00pm) during the school year (September-April) in the Intersection. Each ministry enjoys a separate time for games, biblical instruction, and small group discipleship. This fall (2018) our junior high students will be studying "Entitled - Putting Jesus in His Rightful Place", while our high school students will be studying the "Romans Road - Traveling the Path to Salvation."

Our ministries also enjoy special events throughout the year including Ice Camp & Ascend Camp (see links to side). Please download the student ministry calendar below so you don’t miss out!
