Children & Youth

NVBC celebrates a strong, discipleship-focused set of children and youth ministries.

  • Sunday School for all ages begins at 8:45am each Sunday during the school year.
  • Children and youth are encouraged to join their families for worship at 10:00am.
  • Children ages 4 through 4th grade are dismissed for Children's Church partway through the service.
  • Youth group for 7th through 12th grade meets most Sunday evenings from 7pm to 8:45pm.  There are additional youth events that take place at different times through most months, and special annual events including youth retreats.
  • Karate for Christ is for all ages, including adults, and meets Tuesday nights in separate sessions for Beginners and Advanced.
  • AWANA takes place Friday evenings from 6:45pm to 8:45pm, with check-in starting at 6:30.  Clubbers are from grades K through 6, and teen leaders who have spent time in AWANA as clubbers are welcome to return to assist those coming behind.  AWANA lasts from September through April.
  • Vacation Bible School crashes a week's worth of God stories into a frantic summer week of games, crafts, snacks, dramas, puppet shows, songs, and stories.  The specific schedule will be announced as the time draws closer.
