Ministries for Adults

We believe that God made us uniquely.  Because of our differences and the need to join together in worship, relationship, support, and Biblical education, our church strives to encourage and connect as many people as possible by offering a wide range of ministries for adults.  

Our goal is to help people grow in life and in faith, and we do that by offering ministries geared towards women, men, those experiencing struggles, people who wish to hone their leadership skills or find a job, those who enjoy sports, people who need personal care and encouragement, and anyone who wants to learn more about the Bible.

Small Group Ministries

For anyone seeking a core group of Christians to share life and accountability through Bible study, fellowship, and growth in faith and ministry. We also offer a 34-week Disciple Bible study as well as various adult Sunday School classes.  See our Small Group page for more information.

Men's Ministries

Just for men. New Hanover offers groups for men who seek to share time with Christian brothers and learn what God intends for them through Bible study, informal get-togethers, special trips, and work/service groups.  Visit our Men's Ministry page.

Women's Ministries

Just for women. New Hanover offers ministries for women of any age to enjoy fellowship and learn together through Bible study, social occasions, informational meetings, larger Christian events, and retreats.  Visit our Women's Ministry page.

Support Ministries

For anyone who experiences hardships like grief, addiction, illness, divorce.  Also for those who want to support others who struggle with these life events through prayer, meals, medical assistance, even sending care packages to college students away from home. We host active Celebrate Recovery & Celebration Place programs, and offer a periodic 13-week DivorceCare program.

Personal Development Ministries

For anyone looking for a job, making a career change, or seeking more confidence in their work environment. New Hanover also hosts a Toastmasters International  Club and offers Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University, a 10-week class that shows how to find contentment in personal finances.  

Sports/Active Ministries

Sharing the love of Christ with others who also enjoy active pursuits.  In addition to sponsoring an annual 5K race, New Hanover offers softball, golf, basketball, volleyball, bicycling, karate, and even a group for motorcycle enthusiasts!
