Jesus said, "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of heaven." We love ministering to children at N.B.C. and provide many opportunities for children to grow and for adult volunteers to serve. In the following paragraphs, you'll learn more about our various children's ministries.
Sunday School: We offer Sunday school classes for all children ages. Our goal in Sunday School is to teach children the content of the Bible. We provide our Sunday School ministry with a scope and sequence that ensures we are teaching our children all of the Bible as they grow up in our church. Each week they will sing Bible-rich songs, learn a Bible verse, and be taught a Bible lesson. Parents enjoy receiving "take-home papers" that inform them of what their child learned and provide them opportunities to review the lesson and truths with their child.
Children's Church: We have two children's church divisions, one for k4-1st and one for 2nd-4th grade. When a child reaches 5th or 6th grade they are encouraged to attend the main worship service with their parents. During junior church, both age groups enjoy a service that is geared right for their age level and helps them learn to worship God today. Parents pick up their children at the junior church after the worship service concludes.
Parents/Kids events: Throughout the year, the church plans weekend activities for both child and parent to participate in. We believe that creating opportunities for parents and children to create fun memories and build stronger relationships is very important. A Saturday afternoon spent in the park, sledding down a hill, doing arts and crafts, or even a work project can help strengthen the bond between child and parent. We understand that life gets busy, but we want to do our part in helping you create memories with your child.
