In NFCN Kids Ministries, we believe children are a vital part of the community of faith! Helping children fall in love with Jesus and TEACH Biblical truths to them is our top priority. Mentoring them as they grow in their understanding of God’s love and SHARE in loving relationships within the community is intentional focus.. Including them in ministry opportunities at this young age is important to their spiritual growth, so it is our passion to help them realize their part in His plan as we all EXTEND that same love to others. Partnering with parents, who are the spiritual leaders of each home, is a necessary element to these goals; so, we encourage parental involvement through ministry at church and modeling the transformed LIFE in Christ at home.
We take a holistic approach to children's spiritual formation giving them opportunities for worship, discipleship, evangelism, and service. The vast majority of Christians accept Christ as children. This is the most fertile mission field. We have been given a valuable trust and it is our desire to prove faithful.
Special Needs Ministry
For kids needing assistance because of a developmental or physical challenge, we work with parents to understand each child's needs and provide a great experience for their child. Our goal is to help every child fully participate.
Psalm 78: 4, 7
4 We will not hide them from their descendants;
    we will tell the next generation
the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,
    his power, and the wonders he has done . . .

Then they would put their trust in God
    and would not forget his deeds
    but would keep his commands.
Our commitment to reaching children with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ begins with our Nursery Department, including infants, tumblers and toddlers.  During every session children are taught from curriculum specially chosen to meet their unique developmental needs.  Our purose is to take advantage of every opportunity to plant seeds of faith through experiences in which children can know and feel God's love.
Our Pre-school Department includes children ages two through Kindergarten.  We believe children learn many life truths through guided play and that, with intentional planning, active learning takes place.  All children's leaders are provided curriculum and materials that equip them for success and provide our children with a variety of learning experiences.
Our children are called to a life of holy living that involves the transforming work of God, who cleanses and fills their hearts with compassion and love for others.  As they walk out their faith, it is vital that the community of believers with whom they associate intentionally provide them with opportunities to receive, share and extend the truths and spirit of God.
Our weekly ministry opportunities for elementary-aged children in 1st - 5th grades are strategically designed with these necessary elements in mind.  Physical, relational, mental and spiritual growth are all pieces of this process.  We share life - we play, worship the Lord, study the Word and participate in ministry together.  Through these moments, we grow in community, in our knowledge of God and in understanding of our responsibility to share this LIFE with others.
