Buildings and Grounds:
The Buildings and Grounds Ministry is a service opportunity involving individuals who desire to help with hands-on building projects, landscaping, vehicle maintenance, safety and security procedures, or with setup and tear-down of special events. This ministry is vital and especially fitting for those who like to work behind the scenes with hands-on involvement and short-term projects.
Children’s ministries at Newark Naz are divided into two areas: Nursery and Kid City. The nursery cares for children from birth to 2 years of age, while Kid City reaches children age 3 through 5th grade.
Newark Naz is actively looking for ways to serve others in our community and around the world. Our food pantry serves people in our community on a weekly basis. Periodically, special community outreach events are designed to care for people, with no strings attached.
The Connect Team is responsible for ensuring that guests are greeted and offered assistance. Connect Team members serve during one or more of our celebration services and at special events.
The Finance and Offering Team helps with the counting of offerings and the development of the church budget and financial policies.
Guest Services includes various ministry opportunities (e.g. parking lot attendants, greeters, ushers, information center hosts, chair crews, refreshment greeters, and people who prepare refreshments) that help ensure every person entering the church feels important and welcome, and that they are greeted and offered assistance as needed. These ministry opportunities include personally welcoming people or working behind the scenes setting up chairs or preparing food.
Hospitality teams help to create a caring atmosphere by connecting with people through the preparation and serving of food during our Sunday celebrations and special events.
This ministry is designed for those who have an interest in sound, video recording and editing, operating cameras during the services, lighting, photography, or the website.
Office and Administration Team:
The office team provides office support in various areas such as making phone calls, mailing and various administrative jobs.
Newark Naz Student Community provides a safe place for students in grades 7-12. Students meet on a weekly basis to worship, celebrate successes, share concerns, and learn from God’s Word.
There are several opportunities for those who enjoy teaching or facilitating discussion on special topics. Training is also provided.
The van ministry provides people in our community with transportation to and from the church on Sundays.
The messages of our culture most commonly present themselves in the form of music and visual media. The worship team, praise band, metaphor team, visual team, and creative writing team at Newark Naz focus on using various talents to provide musical and visual enhancement for the weekend worship celebrations. Various gift-based teams gather weekly to build one another up and to strengthen their skills as they prepare for celebrations.
