MINISTRIES

New Horizons Baptist Church Nursery

The Church Nursery is located in the downstairs of the church hall. The nursery provides a space for parents to leave their small children to be cared for while the church service is in progress. If you have a young child, you will have to keep them with you in the service until 11:30 AM as the nursery is not available until 11:30 AM. All children ages 4 and under are welcome.

New Horizons Baptist Church Sunday School

The Church Sunday school is a part of our children’s ministry. Here children learn about their faith and the Bible in a way that is understandable and engaging for them. Sunday school begins at 10:00 AM each Sunday morning before service during the course of the school year. Children from grades primary to six are welcome.

New Horizons Baptist Church Children’s Choir

We are so blessed by our children. SAESO – Saved and Empowered Singing Out, our children’s choir is another aspect of our children’s ministry. The choir is directed by Sherri Borden Colley and accompanied by our church musicians. Children in the church and community are welcome to participate.

New Horizons Revival Choir

The revival choir consists of born again baptized believers who love the Lord and love to sing His praises! Our role is to spread the gospel through song with the hope that someone will be inspired by our message to have a closer walk with the Lord or come to know Him!

New Horizons Youth

Who: YOU! Anyone ages 13-25

What: Youth Group

When:  Saturdays, time varies

Where: While the church building is under renovation, the Youth Group meets in various places as called by Youth Leader, Crystal Skinner and Associate Pastor of Youth & Family, Minister Grace Skeir.

Why: 1 Tim 4:12: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

Men’s Brotherhood

This is a fellowship of men of all ages who work as the male complement to the Ladies’ Auxiliary. They hold various events throughout the year to encourage men in their walk with Christ and to raise funds for the church. During the summer months, the Brotherhood mans the grill for our community BBQ’s and the church picnic. And they can surely cook! The Brotherhood also works to make opportunities for our children, such as sending kids to camp.

They meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. Location and time vary due to church building construction.

Women’s Missionary Society

The WMS has been active for over 150 years! These women selflessly serve to see the gospel message spread in our own community and around the world. They are actively working to support missions’ efforts at home and internationally. If you have a heart for missions, then consider serving alongside the women of the WMS as they serve missionaries at home and abroad.

The Ladies Auxiliary

This group of women is phenomenal! They are the helping hands of the church. The Ladies’ Auxiliary holds all kinds of activities that not only provide food, fun and fellowship for the entire community, but donates the proceeds of those activities to the church for its operations and special projects. Annual teas, dinners, and yard sales are just a few of the events that keep them busy throughout the year.

The Ladies’ Auxiliary is comprised of women of all ages. New participants are always welcome!

Seniors

Our seniors are active throughout all the ministries of NHBC.  Check regularly on our events calendar for special events and seminars specifically for seniors.

Outreach: Ray of Hope Prison Ministry

Our prison ministry team visits inmates at correctional institutions around the Maritimes. The ministry welcomes new members. We especially need men on the team. If you are interested, please contact the Church Office at 902-429-5573 or email rayofhope2009@hotmail.com

“Changing Minds, Changing Lives” After School Tutoring

This was a fantastic program that ran for five years. It is now closed. Tutoring is offered by the Black Educators Association on Gottingen Street.

Worship

The worship ministry at New Horizons Baptist Church is made up of many different parts. We have a praise team, children’s choir, sanctuary choir, and tech team that all work together to lead our congregation in worship on Sunday mornings and at services through the week.

Praise Team

Our praise team is made up of both musicians and vocalists. This team works together to open our services by leading us into worship.

Tech Team

This team serves in worship “behind the scenes” or in our case… in the balcony. This team controls the audio-visual/technical aspect of leading worship.
