At New City, our goal is to partner with parents and walk beside them while providing God-centered curriculum, teachers, and volunteers to aid in this journey. Here you will find a nurturing, spiritual, and educational environment for kids walking age through fifth grade.
Our mission is to create a fun and safe place for kids to transform into Christ’s likeness by connecting to God personally, connecting to God’s people, and connecting to God’s purposes.
Children are very important to Jesus. He took time in his busy ministry schedule to spend time with them. Children are important to us as well, and we structure our Sunday morning classrooms for children in order to facilitate their connection with God and with one another. Parents can sign in their children in the Welcome Area before service at 10:00 am. The kids worship with their parents for the first three worship songs and are then dismissed with their teachers at “Announcement Time.”
We offer a nursery for little ones walking age up to 3 years, a preschool class for 3-5 year olds, a lower elementary classroom for kindergarten through 3rd graders, and an upper elementary classroom for 4th & 5th graders.
We know it can be hard for little bodies to sit the duration of a church service, so we offer a nursery room to meet the needs of these little people! Children are lovingly cared for during the church service. Our nursery curriculum features a weekly Bible story lesson and accompanying coloring page as well as praise music. There are also plenty of toys to engage little minds and bodies.
In preschool, we teach lessons based off of the Jesus Storybook Bible. 3-5 year olds will come together to engage in an introductory activity and to listen to a Bible story. They will wrap up with a craft that ties to their Bible story while listening to praise music. At the end of the lesson, children have the opportunity to take a few moments to play before being picked up by parents.
Our lower elementary classroom hosts kindergarteners through third graders. We use the 252 Basics curriculum to teach about God’s character, and help kids apply it to their own lives. Each Sunday has a video lesson that teaches a character trait and a Bible story. We then split into small groups for journaling, memorizing Bible verses, and engaging in activities that connect to the lesson.
Our upper elementary classroom hosts our fourth and fifth graders. We use the 252 Basics curriculum to teach about God’s character, and help kids apply it to their own lives. Each Sunday has a video lesson that teaches a character trait and a Bible story. We then have discussion time as a group, followed by Bible verse memorization and an activity around the day’s lesson.
