New Wine Ministries

Community Insights and Resources

We believe it's important to be aware about what's going on in our communities and to have resources that point you in the right direction to pray, be actively engaged, and bring Kingdom influence.


Your community is your sphere of influence. God has called us to be the salt and the light in this world and it starts at home.  Know what's going on in your local area and how you can reach out and get involved.


Government is ultimately shaped by culture. As carriers of the Kingdom culture and American citizens we have the opportunity and responsibility to be engaged in local/national policy. Know who your local representatives are and make your voice heard.


Whether you have children of your own or not, you have the opportunity to pave the way for their future. What are your kids being taught, today? How does that effect their Christian worldview? Attend school board meetings, reach out to teachers, and be involved in the education process.

News Sources

We're in the digital age which has its benefits, but also some pitfalls. Many times we are drowning in information overload and still searching for truth. It's important to have solid research and sources you can trust in order to be correctly informed. 


Here are a couple resources that will help you get involved in the community, attend local events, pray for local leadership and seek opportunities for outreach.

We know that many attend New Wine that are outside of the Waterford area. We encourage you to research this information for your local area as well and get involved!
