Children’s Church

We welcome YOUR children to NMCC!2016-Childrens-Church-IMG_2492

Children 4 years old through 8th grade are welcome to attend Children’s Church following the Children’s Message each Sunday.
If you haven’t done so already, please complete a registration form, 2016-2017 Registration, for your child(ren) and email it to , snail mail it, or bring it to Homecoming Sunday on September 11, 2016.

Please see our Children’s Church calendar below for the year at a glance.
The children of our church are seen as ALL of our children, and they are guided through our Children’s curriculum by a dedicated group of parent volunteers. We use Buzz curriculum which combines scripture, games, fun and thought provoking questions developmentally targeted for each of our classes.

Volunteering with children calling your name? Please contact Rene Chin at or Karen Murphy at to teach, lead a Children’s Message, help with Junior Youth Group, join the Board of Christian Education or help in other ways.

Your support fills us with love and gratitude.
