We are SO BLESSED to be able to minister to your precious kids! We firmly believe and practice Proverbs 22:6 “Start children off on the right path. And even when they are old, they will not turn away from it.” It is OUR JOY to partner with you in their Christian education, to lay a foundation in Christ that they can build upon for the rest of their lives!
NH Kids is a special worship service for elementary-age children. We are pleased to offer separate Sunday services for kids K-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade. This split makes it possible for us to make our worship times age appropriate and for the kids to really dig into what they’re learning and apply it to their lives. Our NH Kids service is designed to effectively communicate God’s Word through music, stories, interactive media, games, drama, crazy characters, and much more! NH Kids meets on Sunday mornings during both the 8:00 AM and 10:30 AM services. On Sundays, our K-2 Kids Church meets in room 222 and our 3-5 Kids Church meets in room 230.
On Wednesday nights at 6:30, kids K-4th graders meet in small groups with other children in their grade at the beginning and end of our service time. These groups are critical to building relationships and learning to apply God’s Word in practical ways. Between small group times, we meet in a large group setting for worship, scripture memorization, Bible lessons, and much more!
