Children

Goals, Programs, Rules and Policies at NVCC


Our Goal and Promise to You

  • To create a safe and positive learning environment with fun and engaging activities for all children to come to know God and grow in their relationship with Him
  • To safeguard your children and our workers by always having two or more adults or youth working with children at all times. (All NVCC children's workers over 18 undergo background checks.)

  • Worship Care - Offered every Sunday during worship for all children nursery-grade 2. An older sibling or parent may accompany younger ones for a couple of weeks to help in their adjustment to the class if needed.
  • Children's Worship - Offered every Sunday of every month during worship for all children age 3-grade 6.
