CHILDREN'S MINISTRY


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."

Communion Class

Receiving communion is a faith milestone for kids and we want to help you prepare them for that step. If you have a child in 2nd grade or older who may be ready to take this step in their faith journey, please consider attending our Communion Preparation class led by Senior Pastor Adam Jackley on Sunday March 10, from 12:15-12:45 pm in the 4th/5th grade classroom. This class is for parents and children to attend together. The children who complete the class will be acknowledged and prayed over by the congregation on Palm Sunday, March 24. They will also have the opportunity to receive communion at the Communion Services on March 27 or 28 at 7 p.m. If you have any questions, please contact Marianne Smith via email msmith@nccinwexford.org or phone/text at 724-301-5352.

Christian Seder Meal

Gather your loved ones for a meaningful and interactive meal where you will explore the terms, elements and importance of the Passover Seder. Each group will be provided with everything including the script and symbolic elements. After the Seder experience, we will share a family style dinner together. Come ready to explore something new! Register here!

Walk With Jesus

Walk With Jesus is a unique group experience with interactive stations following Jesus from his triumphal entry into Jerusalem to his resurrection. Each station will have a hands-on activity and thought provoking questions.

 

Groups will begin the “walk” at noon and continue every 20 minutes through 2 p.m. The whole experience should take about one hour. We look forward to seeing you and your guests!

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.
