At New Life, our children’s ministry seeks to provide a foundation (the love of Christ) for children to grow on. It is our goal to aid parents in providing tools children need for a deeply-rooted faith in Jesus Christ, a desire to be obedient to Him, and a love for Him that will remain throughout their lifetime.
The children’s ministry theme passage is Ephesians 3:17-19. “So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:17-19, ESV).
Our children meet on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. at the New Life building for Children’s Church. The groups are broken down by age:
- Nursery (ages infant – 2 years)
- 3 year olds
- Pre-Kindergarten – Kindergarten
- 1st – 2nd grades
- 3rd – 6th grades (breakout sessions for 3rd – 4th and 5th – 6th)
Our children are taught using Children Desiring God curriculum (except 3 year olds). http://www.childrendesiringgod.org/
- The current series we are using are:
- Nursery—A Sure Foundation
- 3 year olds—based on the Jesus Storybook Bible
- Pre-K-K—Jesus, What a Savior
- 1st -2nd grades—Faithful to All His Promises
- 3rd – 6th grades—How Majestic is Your Name
Nursery is also available for children ages infant – pre-kindergarten on Sunday morning. Families are encouraged to worship together in the service and we love children to attend the service. New Life Christian Community sees children as a blessing from God and are not a distraction to the service. If children do get restless, we do provide busy bags geared for children age four – 2nd grade.
