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 ages 2 to fifth grade. We meet the same time as Adult School of Discipleship. Our current curriculum is The Gospel Project and it teaches through the Old and New Testaments in three years. The children learn that all of God’s word points to Jesus Christ as their Savior.

Children’s Church

We provide children’s church during the worship services for children ages 2 years to second grade. Children participate in the beginning of worship with their parents, and are then dismissed to their own classes.

Special Needs/Disabilities

At New Life we welcome all children, including those with special needs and/or disabilities. We realize church can be a challenging environment when families are navigating developmental delays, learning challenges, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety, or severe allergies to name a few. Please contact Beth Anne Lesshafft at bethanne.lesshafft@newlifedresher.org to discuss how we can best serve you and your child’s needs.

Kid’s Clubs

Clubs 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.  Our 2018-19 Kids Clubs will begin on September 16.

Coffee and Kids Playgroup

Twice a month we invite parents/caregivers of babies and pre-schoolers to come and spend a morning for play, coffee/tea and conversation.  Our only agenda is to get to know each other better, and to allow children a time to play. A light snack and water is also provided for the children. Coffee & Kids is held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 9:30 – 11:00 am in the auditorium.  

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 in Motion is a three-hour morning program for children aged 3-5 or entering kindergarten. Kids-in-Motion is a full-day program for those from kindergarten to those leaving 5th grade, where campers choose either a sports or art track. The 2018 camp dates were July 30-August 3.  Registration for next summer’s camps will begin in early 2019, so stay tuned.

Current News

2018-19 Kids Clubs

Please join us on Sunday nights beginning September 16 for our Kids Clubs program. Children will run around and play games with their friends, enjoy a snack with their small groups, hear a Bible lesson in the large-group setting, and then spend a few minutes talking about the lesson with their small group. Sunday nights are a great opportunity for kids to build relationships with their peers, as well as learn about the most important relationship, our relationship with Jesus Christ. We encourage all parents to participate with their children, but our Boys Club program is run as a father/son night.
