There are many ministry opportunities for adults at New World. One of the largest and most active ministries is the United Methodist Women. This organization is involved with missions fundraising, organizing social events, and leading worship on UMW Sunday. All women in the congregation are welcome to participate in this active ministry.
Primetimers is the ministry for the older adults at New World. Activities include a monthly pot luck lunch at the church, breakfasts at Los Jarros Restaurant each month, and occasional trips to local attractions such as local theater productions. Our older adults have also participated in mission trips to Sager Brown Depot in Baldwin, LA as well as McCurdy School in Espanola, NM.
There is a wide variety of adult Sunday school opportunities at New World. Adult Sunday school classes are offered at 9:30 and 10:50 on Sunday mornings. The classes choose their own curriculum- some read the latest authors while others focus on Bible study.
There are also Bible study groups on Monday, Thursday and Friday which are mainly attended by women. Not to be outdone, there is a men’s group, the Cross Trainers, which meets on Monday mornings. This group reads and discusses the books of various authors.
