Here at National we believe that children are a vital part of our worshipping community. We strive to create a safe and fun environment in which kids can develop their faith. Our NPC Children’s Ministries are committed to walking alongside families as they grow up together in Christ. We look forward to walking this winding and wonderful road with you!
Our aim is that children will connect with Christ as they hear about the love of Jesus and the Word of God, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Sundays, 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
This summer, kids, parents, and grandparents are invited to "Family Hour," where we'll enjoy breakfast as we unlock the meaning of Jesus’ parables through videos, skits, and hands-on activities. All ages are welcome at Family Hour! There is also optional childcare for children up to age 4 in the main church building.
Sundays, 8:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
We have separate, developmentally-specific nurseries staffed by loving, experienced caregivers. Both nurseries are located on the lower level of the main church building:
- Crib Room (Babies 6 weeks - Crawling): Main Church ground floor, Room 16
- Walker Room (Strong walkers up to 4 yrs.): Main Church ground floor, Room 7

Club 45 is an awesome group of 4th and 5th-grade students that gather together to build relationships and connect with God through Scripture, service, and fun! This summer our kids will figure out what it means to really live for God! There will be games, snacks, and a lesson.
Wednesdays, June 19-August 14 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room
(No gathering on July 3; on July 10 we will meet from 12:30-2:00 p.m. after VBS)
Like all church ministries, NPC Children depend on the time and energy of volunteers. We are deeply thankful for the parents, young professionals, NPC members, and seminary students who give their time to serve our kids. If you are interested in volunteering as a Club 45 leader, Sunday school teacher, or special event coordinator, please contact Cate McCrory.
