Investing in our future

The mission of New Community Church Children's Ministries is to partner with parents to raise godly kids. 

This mission is based on Deuteronomy 6:4-9:

"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates."

Fall Family Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat is a fun fall costumed event for all! There are 3 ways to participate: decorate your car/suv truck and give out candy; bring kids to receive candy and vote on your favorite trunk; or both! Register here to participate.

Family Ministries Workshop

This interactive workshop will provide deeper insight into the “Identity in Christ” step of the Family Faith Pathway. During childhood and adolescence, children will begin to ask, “Who am I?” For a Christian, the most central and stable feature of their identity is Jesus Christ. By prioritizing their identity in Christ, and with your support and encouragement, children can best learn what it means to live and love like Jesus. The workshop will consist of several breakout options that will equip you with resources and materials that you can take back to your family and put into action! Join us as we explore this theme together and learn about how families can build an identity in Christ together. Lunch will be provided and childcare is available. Register here.

Children's Ministries includes:


    KIDS' KINGDOM is our Sunday morning ministry for any child from newborn through 5th grade. Age-appropriate worship and biblical teaching are offered in Kids' Kingdom during each Sunday morning service, at 9 and 11 a.m., while students in 6th through 8th grade attend THRIVE, and adults worship in the Sunday services. It is our prayer that Kids’ Kingdom is a vibrant community where children KNOW Jesus Christ, GROW up in Him, and GO out for Him!

    Our mission is to partner with parents to lay a spiritual foundation that will guide a child toward becoming a growing disciple of Jesus Christ, and develop a team of volunteers who are skilled and equipped in ministry to children.  



    AWANA is our mid-week discipleship program for children in preschool through 5th grade. AWANA encourages children to engage in weekly Bible verse memorization, while also offering worship and biblical teaching, along with the popular "game time." AWANA is held on Wednesdays from 6:15 to 8:00 p.m., during the school year. We are offering AWANA will resume in January 2022.



    KidZone is our week-long Vacation Bible School held in the summer, typically the second week in July. Daily key points and Bible verses are reinforced through worship, Bible time, small-group huddles, games, and crafts. The cost is usually $50-60 per child (scholarships are available), and all children entering kindergarten through 6th grade are invited to attend. Students in grades 7-12 and adults are invited to be leaders of groups, games, crafts, and more during this special week of community building and Bible teaching at NCC.
