The scholarship ministry exists to provide basic knowledge of the College Admissions process through workshops and other related sessions. We aim to ensure that young people know about the various opportunities to pursue a higher education. We realize not everyone is interested in attending a four-year institution, so we introduce and provide information for alternative educational avenues. Whether it is vocational or technical schools, we are committed to providing resources and knowledge so students can make informed and sound choices when choosing a college and career path.
Intercessory Prayer Ministry
The Intercessory Prayer Ministry exists to intentionally seek God for the needs of the church, the church families, the community, the body of Christ, those who are in authority in our world, and our ministry partners, and to expect God's miraculous powers to be displayed. Join us online on Tuesday evenings to pray.
The transportation ministry exists to assist persons in getting to functions and worship services. Rides are provided via the church van and member pick-up. Persons requesting transportation should telephone the church office no later than one day before the event they wish to attend.

Grow and Serve Ministry exists to involve New Canaan's disciples in various ministries that deeply touch the lives of our neighbors. Our partnership with our neighbors provides an avenue for service driven by Jesus' teaching to love our neighbor. Also, we regularly sponsor special days of service when many of our church family will work together on a significant project for the sake of the larger community.
