We are excited to support you throughout your child’s spiritual development. To provide the safest experience for your kids, we have a computer-based check-in system. If you’re checking-in children birth-5th, our check in volunteers are happy and ready to help you each Sunday morning or Wednesday night.
Our Kids teams are committed to help raise up a Christ-centered generation. Our staff and volunteers love caring for the littlest in God’s Kingdom and helping parents navigate these amazing ages. We’re available to partner in any way we can to serve your family! You can contact us at anytime by contacting the church by email, through our church or HiSKidZ NTCC Facebook page, or by making a note on your connection card any Sunday.
We care for your kids, birth through preschool by providing a safe and fun environment! These are fun and active stages in your child’s life. We believe in an active, hands-on teaching method with our kids. Services are divided into several segments: fun activities designed to grab their attention, creative presentation of Bible stories, worship, prayer, and teaching them what it means to talk to God. If your child has any allergies or special needs, please make sure that our check in staff has that information and be sure to inform the teacher.
Elementary-age kids are in a constant state of discovery. Think about all the different things they’re trying for the first time and what they’re learning every day – even how to make (and keep) friends. Our Elementary classes (K- 5th grades) are geared to intentionally help with their spiritual development. We believe that church and family were made to work together to raise our children to be Christ followers. When parents embrace their God-ordained authority and lead their children to know God, then we as a church can support and resource this faith step.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT KIDZROCK:
KidZRocK is our Wednesday night program for K-5th grade. The midweek program is held September through May and focuses on relating to children through small group times. Students meet together in their groups and attend stations together that include Bible teaching, large group games, high energy songs, service activities, crafts and more.
Throughout the year HiSKidZ celebrate Sunday Fundays. Special themed Sundays allowing them to invite their friends and their families to experience church in a fun and engaging way. These events have taken the place of our Vacation Bible Schools and involve creative teaching, crafts, snacks, music and games all in a Sunday KidZChurch setting.
Is your child interested in getting baptized or do they have questions? We have a study that parents and kids can go through together to help figure out if your child is ready to take that next step. Reach out to our Kids Team for any questions or to schedule a baptism time.
HiSKidZ at NTCC
While we offer KidZChurch for children grades K-5th grade, and early childhood classes for little HiSKidZ infants-preschool, we know some children attend service with their families. For these children, worship packs are available at our front door welcome center to help them engage with the week’s KidZChurch Online message and follow along with the pastor's weekly message. Fifth Sundays are "Youth and Family Sundays" where students help in all areas of worship and elementary students join their families for worship in the main auditorium. Early childhood children still have their classes on those Sundays, but are always welcome in the services, too.
