CHILDREN’S MINISTRY 

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 kids  “to love and live supernaturally, for the sake of God and the sake of others.”

 
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.

Children’s Choirs – Our Little Seekers choir is for Pre-K (kids in the year before Kindergarten) and Kindergarten aged children, and is led by Molly Baker (molly7100@hotmail.com) & Jennifer Storrow. They meet at 6:15 pm in the current Pre-K classroom, and learn from an early age how to be a worshiper of the Lord through song. Our SonSeekers choir is for grades 1-6, and is led by Nancy Yachanin (nancyyach16@gmail.com) and Kristen Leibolt. They meet at 6:15 pm in the sanctuary. Both choirs sing a few Sundays during the year and also work on a musical performance (spring or Christmas).

Club FX is our midweek children’s discipleship program that meets during the school year for kids Kindergarten through Grade 4 in the Conference Room.
Club 56 is our discipleship ministry for preteens in Grades 5-6. This is a vital transitional ministry for children in grades 5-6 who start feeling too old for children’s ministry and our not quite old enough for youth ministries.  This ministry will include studies in God’s Word, activities, and service projects.  They meet in the Upper Room.
