CHILDREN, Kids with dads

Children @ NLC

Children are a key component in church life. They bring wonder and laughter into our lives. Children’s and Family Ministry gathers and celebrates children while fostering love of Jesus Christ in a warm and loving community of faith.

  • We help children discover God’s love and live their faith every day.
  • We offer an innovative partnership that recognizes parents as the most important person in a child’s faith development.
  • Both adults and children will grow in relationship with God and each other.

During your child’s preschool and elementary years, join us for Sunday School and Faith Markers.

Celebrate their First Communion with us.

Communion Instruction 

Saturday, March 18 | 9:00-11:30am

We extend a special invitation for Communion support and instruction for all families with children in grades 3, 4, and 5, but also welcome instruction for younger children and their families.  Whether this is your child’s First Communion or your child has communed for many years, this instruction is a time to find deep connection in this Sacrament of the Lutheran Church. We invite you to join us for this year’s retreat in preparation for your Communion recognition which will be celebrated on Maundy Thursday, April 13 at 7:00pm.
