About

We exist to show God’s love through stories, songs, crafts, and interactive play.

Each Sunday morning and Wednesday evening, we provide our preschoolers, toddlers, and babies with a safe and welcoming environment where they participate in meaningful, age-appropriate worship and learning.

Ministry programming and care for all nursery/preschool ages is available for all three service hours on Sunday morning and during the Wednesday evening service. For events outside of Sundays and Wednesdays, please check the event information to see if programming will be provided.
For preschool aged children, the message of God’s love is presented through storytelling, songs, and games and crafts that help to reinforce the what they are learning. Kids can make friends, learn the Bible stories, move to music, and memorize Bible verses all while in a safe and engaging environment.

In our nurseries, infants and toddlers are lovingly cared for, played with, and comforted. They learn that when they are here, they are loved, safe, and can have fun.

Safety is a primary concern for our nursery and preschool programs. All our volunteers are screened and have completed a background check. We use a computer generated check-in system that prints a series of random numbers on the child’s name tag. Simultaneously, a receipt with the same series of numbers is printed for the adult to keep in their possession. To ensure safety at dismissal, children are only released to the adult who shows the receipt with the numbers that match the numbers on the child’s name tag.

New to NMC?

We are so glad you've decided to attend! If you would like your children plugged in, here are some helpful details: The KidMin Check-In stations are located next to the Welcome Center just inside the Visitor’s Entrance on the north side of the church. Here your child will get a name-tag(s) and appropriate room assignments. If you have any questions when you arrive, you can find a friendly face at the KidMin Visitor’s Center.

PreSchool Milestone Event

Going into Kindergarten is just as much of a big step for a child as it is for their parents. It can be exciting and intimidating. That’s why we hold the Preschool Milestone Event for incoming kindergartners each summer. At this one-day event, your incoming kindergartner will play games, listen to Bible stories, and sing songs all while becoming comfortable in their new classroom upstairs and meeting their new teachers. At the end of the event, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with and be encouraged by the K/1 Director as she gives you insight into what you and your child will experience in the fall.

This summer, your preschooler will go on a Bible Adventure to learn about God’s true story! They will hear important truths from Shine and Emily, sing-along with Mr. Music, memorize a verse with Guy the Bible Guy, and see how the Bible applies to an everyday situation with Blinky. So pack your adventure bags and join us for preschool programming this summer!
