Kids in Worship

Children's Time & Children's Chapel

We love kids in worship! Children in grades K-5th grade are invited to the front during the service for a children's message. After that, they may exit to the Chapel for a special time of learning together during the sermon. Teachers will return them to their parents in the Sanctuary before the end of the service.

Club 45

In the summer we will meet on Wednesdays, weekly for 6 weeks at 4:00-5:00 pm.

Club 45 is a unique way for our 4th and 5th graders to grow in faith and fellowship and have fun! We offer an opportunity for your 4th and 5th graders to have some fun and fellowship time together outside of Sunday School. We will meet in the Youth House (campus map). The kids will be encouraged to hang-out, play games, and have some devotional time.

If you are interested in attending, please contact npckids@nationalpres.org for more information.

May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:5-6​

Milestones in Worship

From Kindergarten to 5th grade, children at NPC have the opportunity to learn about and present an element of worship. Each grade will have an introductory lesson with their parents, opportunities to practice the milestone at home as a family, and a date to present in the worship service.

Registration

Prior to your child's participation in our children's activities, we ask that you complete a brief registration.
