Children & Youth 

New City Church welcomes and loves your children!

We believe each child can experience the wonderful love of God through the Children’s Ministry at New City. Our vision is that each child would know the forever love of Christ and know that God sent Jesus Christ to rescue them.

 

We desire to accomplish this vision by:

Establishing an atmosphere of love and laughter so that each child may experience the love of Christ from the volunteers caring for them.

Choosing curriculum that would teach and share the forever love of Christ with each child.

Sharing the love of Christ to the families of New City by ministering to the spiritual and physical needs of their children.

FAQs

Where do I sign-in my kids for child care and Children’s Worship?

Please sign your children in at the computer in the lobby before the service. You will receive a printed sticker to be placed on each child and a number for your family. Please keep your parent/guardian number sticker with you and show it when you retrieve your children from each classroom. If you lose your number sticker, please bring a photo I.D. for pickups. More detailed sign-in and registration information can be found on the sign-in table.

Where are the classrooms?

The Willows class meets in a designated classroom in the lower hallway and all other children meet upstairs. Maps are provided at the sign-in table and located throughout the building. Please pickup children from children’s church classrooms during communion through the stairwell in the back of the sanctuary.

How can I volunteer for the Children’s Ministries?

Volunteers are required to complete a background check, application and have been in attendance at New City Church for at least 6 months, and to have completed our children’s ministry training.  Parents of children in our kids programs are encouraged to volunteer. Please contact Emily Winter at emily@newcityindy.org for volunteer information, or sign-up during our annual volunteer sign-ups each September.
