Children are a gift from the Lord!  At NOEFC we believe it is just as important for our children, as it is for our youth and adults, to be growing disciples who know, love, follow, and lead others to Jesus.  

Our vision is to raise up a generation of children that leave the hand prints of Christ all over the world.

Our children’s programs and activities are designed to partner with parents to provide a safe and fun environment where kids can grow in their knowledge of God’s Word and develop a trusting and vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ.
