At NLC, we believe children should be at the center of our congregational life. We partner with families, realizing that they are the most important people in a child’s faith development, to help children discover God’s love and to live their faith in everyday life.

Faith Markers*

Faith Markers use significant milestones in a child’s life to connect families to each other and to the congregation, helping strengthen their relationship with God.

*Faith markers are currently on hold due to the pandemic.

First Communion

All are welcome to the table as baptized members of God’s family. At NLC, we invite children in grades 3-5 to their First Communion, though anyone who wishes to receive instruction is welcome, regardless of age. A parent/child instruction retreat is held during Lent and First Communion is celebrated at worship on Maundy Thursday.

Children’s Choirs

Children in kindergarten through grade 6 are invited to participate in our active choir program!
