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!
We would love to see you and your family visit NPPC Kids.
Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:30AM at our Family Outdoor Worship. This service will be geared toward families with elementary children and younger. The service will have child-friendly moments , special music geared for children, skits/object lessons, storytelling, and Bible readings as families worship together. Everyone is welcome at this family-friendly service whether you have children or not, but remember, there will be special elements designed especially for children and probably a bit of extra noise!! And that’s just the way we like it!!!
