NPC Children's Ministry

Welcome to NPC Children's Ministry! 

Here at NPC we believe that children are a vital part of our worshipping community. We strive to create a safe and fun environment in which kids can develop their faith. Our NPC Children’s Ministries are committed to walking alongside families as they grow up together in Christ. We look forward to walking this winding and wonderful road with you!
 

Our Aim

Our aim is that children will connect with Christ as they hear about the love of Jesus and the Word of God, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
 

Sunday School

Sundays, 9:30 – 10:45 a.m.

Children are joining the whole church in participating in our programming of "The Story," a chronological telling of the biblical material from Genesis to Revelation using selected scripture from the NIV translation of the Bible.
 

Child Care

Sundays, 8:15 a.m. –  12:15 p.m.

When you know that your children are safe and well cared for, you can relax and concentrate on worship. We have separate, developmentally-specific nurseries staffed by loving, experienced caregivers. Both nurseries are located on the lower level of the main church building:
  • Crib Room (Babies 6 weeks - Crawling): Main Church ground floor, Room 16
  • Walker Room (Strong walkers up to 4 yrs.): Main Church ground floor, Room 7
 

Registration

In order to provide secure check-in/check-out for your child, we ask that you complete a brief registration the first time your child attends Sunday School.

  • 2nd Grade: The Apostle’s Creed
  • 3rd Grade: The Bible
  • 4th Grade: Communion

Club 45…Real Friends. Real Faith. Real Fun. 

Club 45 is an awesome group of 4th and 5th-grade students that gather together to build relationships and connect with God through Scripture, service, and fun! Club 45 gathers quarterly during the school year and weekly during the summer. 
 
 

Volunteers

Like all church ministries, NPC Children depend on the time and energy of volunteers. We are deeply thankful for the parents, young professionals, NPC members, and seminary students who give their time to serve our kids. If you are interested in volunteering as a Club 45 leader, Sunday school teacher, or special event coordinator, please contact Cate McCrory.
