Children & Youth

Sunday School

Sunday School is available every Sunday for children ages Kindergarten through 5th grade. While children are always welcome to stay with their adults for Worship, Sunday School presents a wonderful opportunity for children to learn, worship, and grow in community with their peers. Our program is a fun, engaging way to build faith, knowledge, and community in our youngest members. Instruction is delivered by our lead teacher, Courtney Johnson, with the assistance of at least one church volunteer each week. Weekly lessons are based on the “Shine: Living In God’s Light” curriculum.

Additionally, childcare is offered weekly for infants, toddlers, and pre-K.  Learn more about our childcare.

What to expect


Sunday School and childcare takes place across the street from the Church at the NCC Parish House. 

Where to meet

Each Sunday, families with children gather in the Sanctuary for Worship at 10am (with the exception of Communion Sunday* the first Sunday of every month.)

After a Children’s Moment, around 10:10am, the children are released to the care of our Sunday School leader and walk across the street together as a group.


Sunday School education is based on the Shine curriculum and features fun and engaging teacher-led faith-building activities.

Pickup & Fellowship

At the end of the worship service, parents reunite with their children at the NCC Parish House where both adults and children are welcome to participate in Fellowship for coffee and refreshments.

*Communion Sunday — the first Sunday of every month

On Communion Sunday, the first Sunday of each month, families drop children off at the NCC Parish House for Sunday School and children return to the Sanctuary to participate in Communion at the end of Worship.

Faith experienced at an early age is the foundation for all other growth. The good news we share with our children has the power to transform lives and revitalize communities. So, let’s prepare the ground for a new tomorrow, send down roots anchored in love. Let’s sow in them seeds of mercy and plant them by the river of life. Let’s teach our kids to shine in this world.
