NLC Kids is created to partner with the parents in leading their children to become fully engaged followers of Jesus. Through fun worship, engaging activities, and consistent leaders, children are exposed to God’s Word and challenged to apply it as they develop an authentic faith. We run parallel with our church purpose statement, We exist to lead people to become fully engaged followers of Jesus.
Our children’s services are fully staffed with background checked and trained adults and high school students who are committed to teaching and ministering to children. Our spaces are clean, safe, and specialized so you can be confident that your child is well-cared for while you worship. NLC Kids is offered during all of our weekend services, with doors opening 20 minutes before our services.
Babies and Ones:
A loving nursery with simple Bible lessons is provided for newborns through 1 year old.
From the earliest age, we provide clean, safe, and specialized spaces with trained staff and volunteers to provide loving care for your babies and one year olds. We want you as parents and caregivers to have the peace of knowing your children are being well cared for while you enjoy the service. Room leaders will seek specific care needs from parents to ensure the proper care is delivered. Children and families are also joyfully prayed for in this environment. We believe that this embracing care communicates to little ones that they are safe in their Heavenly Father’s arms.
Exciting preschool program including Bible lesson, worship, activities and crafts for children ages 1 through Kindergarten.
Pre-K is our weekly environment created for your preschool-aged children. We can’t wait to meet them! We know things are busy and your children are learning and growing in amazing ways. We are ready for them! We believe in an active, hands-on approach to learning with preschool children. Be ready for a lot of jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience. Fun crafts and big games too. Starting at the age of 2, we begin teaching them lessons through interactive activities and Bible stories.We look forward to helping your preschoolers learn more about God. It is our hope that your child will learn these three truths:
- God MADE me.
- God LOVES me.
- Jesus wants to be my FRIEND forever.
Elementary program including Bible lesson, worship, activities and crafts for children of elementary age.
We believe that learning from the Bible can be fascinating, worship can be fun, and every child should have a leader in their life who cares. Before kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure they learn these three things:
1. I need to make the wise choice.
2. I can trust God no matter what.
3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
In K-Town and Studio K, your kids will have high energy worship and receive engaging biblical lessons with a “Monthly Virtue” in a large group setting. The focus then turns to Small Groups where kids build friendships that will last, learn how God’s Word fits in to their lives, and learn how to talk to God.
NLC Kids Is Designed With These Core Values In Mind
We create safe and clean spaces for children to learn and explore their faith with grace and love. This means that we are strategic about our environments and team member training to create safety for every child.
We view everything that we do as an opportunity to team up with parents in order to help you raise your child with a strong spiritual foundation and a strong moral foundation as well.
Each of our different environments have different curriculum, music, and events that are designed to be age (phase) relevant, fun, and engaging for each child.
This means that each child will be exposed to a lot of the same teachers, small group leaders, and other children which will produce excitement about coming and comfort once they arrive.
This means that everything that we do will be focused around teaching children biblical truths and showing them how to live out those truths as they walk through life.
Fun and Engaging
We want your child to grow up loving church! We place our attention to experiences, activities, and lessons that will be enjoyable and memorable for your children. We want them to be excited about coming back.
