New Life’s Children’s Ministries
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 of 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?
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 by Show Me Jesus and teaches through the Old and New Testaments. It teaches the big picture of Gods word, while helping children understand the love of Jesus.
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.
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. CLICK HERE for more information and to register online. CLICK HERE for the Fall Schedule.
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. Mom & Tot will start on Tuesday, September 25th, and it will be from 9:30-11:00 am. It will be held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.
2018-19 Kids Clubs – Begin September 16
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. CLICK HERE for more information and to register online.
