kids ministry

Children are important to God, and are a vital part of our ministry here at NewLife. We offer Sunday School for children from 3 years old up to 8th grade, and nursery care for infants from 6 months up to age 3.

Sunday School – Children are dismissed to Sunday School before the sermon (usually around 10:25). The classes are taught by a rotation of mature Christians who are qualified, trained, and have passed criminal background checks. Our older classes use a Gospel Project curriculum that teaches the children the Bible while showing them how it all points to Jesus.  Our preschool classes use a curriculum by Gospel Publishing House.

Nursery – Children from 6 months up to the age of three can be left in our nursery. Our nursery uses a curriculum called 'Lil Sprouts' for our 1-3 year olds. There is also plenty of time for free play and an allergy-friendly snack. There are always at least two caregivers on duty in the nursery, and all caregivers have passed a criminal background check. We also have a private area for nursing mothers in the conference room to the south of the sanctuary, and cuddlers who are willing to hold and soothe infants so that you can participate in the church service.
