Our kids have fun; learning to know God and make Him known through exciting and engaging teaching of God’s grace-filled plan for mankind found in Scripture, memorization of God’s Word, and the joyful discovery of God’s redemptive purpose in their lives.

At New City Kids we strive to come alongside parents as they are a child's primary discipleship leader. Over the years we have listed, created, and gathered many resources we believe will be helpful. This is an ongoing collection, so please let us know if you are aware of anything that should be added.
It is important to us that our children know that this is not just their parents' church. As the Apostle Peter made clear in his first sermon (Acts 2) the Promise is for us and for our children. The Book of Church Order reminds us (6-1) that the children of believers are, through the covenant and by right of birth, non-communing members of the Church. They are entitled to the sacraments of baptism, to the benefits of pastoral oversight and instruction - all with a view toward their coming to embrace Christ personally - making their parents' faith their own.
About once a year we offer a Kids & Students Covenant Partnership Class in which we focus on the essentials of our faith and work alongside our children to help them develop the ability to articulate their understanding of the gospel. Once they can give a credible profession of faith and demonstrate the ability to examine themselves beforehand, the elders will make communion available to them.
