Our lives span the spectrum from awesome to mediocre and messy. At NCC, we know that life’s journey shouldn’t be navigated alone. Our desire is to connect with God and with others who share life’s ups and downs with grace, and not judgment. Small Groups do life together, building community through authentic relationships. .

Small Groups are the heart of our church and the perfect place to form lifelong relationships with other believers. When you attend a Small Group, you can look forward to discussing Sunday’s teaching and spending time in fellowship and prayer with one another. We hope you’ll consider sharing your journey with us. For more information, visit the Welcome Center on Sunday mornings.

If you've spent any time at New Covenant, you've heard about the tremendous impact our Small Groups are having in the lives of the people God has brought here. When you attend a Small Group, you’ll be able to discuss the teaching from Sunday and spend time in fellowship and prayer for one another. 

Currently, we have around 20 Small Group meetings— and we’re in need of Small Group Leaders! NCC is growing and we need leaders in every area of Albuquerque. We’ll provide all the necessary training to get your own Small Group up and running. Connect with Chad Smitch at or 505-857-9875.
