Children at New Providence Presbyterian Church

At New Providence Presbyterian Church our kids (infant through 6th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way. In Matthew 19:14, Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Our goal is to nurture, teach and help lead children to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through early childcare, Sunday School, after-school Youth and Kid Clubs and Vacation Bible School (VBS). It is our prayer that through these programs, children will learn to connect with God in a personal, meaningful way and form lasting friendships with other children in their community!
