Children’s ministry at New Life is dedicated to providing safe, secure environments where children, from the very earliest ages to fifth grade, can learn about the promises in God in Jesus Christ. The various programs encourage positive social interactions with other children and nurturing relationships with adults who model faithful Christian living. Children’s workers undergo background checks and are approved by the elders of the church for service annually.
Our desire is to disciple our children in the faith. Our curriculum emphasizes the grace of Jesus Christ for all the needs in our lives. At the same time, we use crafts, games, parties, and extra activities outside the classroom to convey the loving community we long for as children of God.
What programs do we offer?
Nursery: Sunday mornings nursery care is provided for children 0-2 years old. Our caregivers provide a loving secure environment for our littlest ones in safe, clean rooms.
School of Discipleship: This is for all boys and girls age 2-fifth grade. This meets the same time as Adult School of Discipleship. Our current curriculum is by “Show Me Jesus” and teaches through the Old and New Testaments. It teaches the big picture of God’s word, while helping children understand the love of Jesus.
Children’s Church: We provide children’s church during the worship services for children ages 2 years to 2nd grade. Children participate in the beginning of worship with their parents, and are then dismissed to their own classes.
Kid’s Clubs: These are held on Sunday evenings during the school year for boys and girls, Kindergarten through 5th grade. Parents are invited and encouraged to participate in these programs.
Mom/Tot Playgroup: Twice a month we invite moms of babies and pre-schoolers to come and spend a morning for play, coffee and conversation. Our only agenda is to get to know each other better, and to allow children a time to play.
Summer Camp: Toward the end of July or beginning of August we sponsor our annual “Cubs-in-Motion” and “Kids-in-Motion” day camps. “Cubs” include children aged 3-5 or entering kindergarten. This is a three hour morning program. “Kids” is a full day program for those from Kindergarten to those leaving 5th grade.
