Youth and Children’s Ministry

NLBC has a great group of young people. While we believe the father and mother are to be to primary disciple-makers of their children,
we understand that the Lord uses various other means to impact young persons in a Christ-ward way. For this purpose we seek to offer opportunities such as: Small Groups on Sunday morning, occasional fellowships after church on Sunday evenings, Fall Fusion (a fall youth conference), and an annual Summer Camp. The name of this ministry is “Four-12 Student Ministry” after 1 Timothy 412, which says, “Let no one despise your youth be be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” It is our prayer that each of our young people would become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ.  

Our mid-week program is NLBC Kids is a fun, educational, and Scripture saturated program the teaches our children about the Gospel and what it means to follow Jesus Christ. We have a wonderful team of ladies who work faithfully each week to plant and water the seed of the Word in our children’s hearts. The children also learn rich songs and hymns that they will sing occasionally on Sunday mornings as a part of the worship service.
