New City Catechism

New City Catechism is a series of fixed questions and answers used for instruction. Catechism is not only a way to learn and gain knowledge but also is a spiritual and communal practice of memorizing spiritual truths and doing that within a faith community whether it is a small group or your family. The teaching videos, small group guides, and app will help your family learn together.

Conversation Guide - Communion

As we participate in Communion as a church body, your kids may have questions about Communion and what it means to participate. This is a great opportunity for you to discuss salvation with them. We've created a Conversation Guide designed to equip you with good questions, wise words, and important next steps to help your kids understand this sometimes confusing practice.
