At NDCBF there are a wide variety of opportunities for children, beginning at birth. We believe all kids can learn and understand who God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are, as well as understand concepts such as the Bible, salvation, creation, church , people, family, community and world. Our goal is to introduce kids to Jesus and help them to grow in their relationship with Him. We want to disciple them so they are comfortable sharing the Gospel with the world around them.

Sunday School is the main extension of Children's Ministry and is for students 2 years old through 5th grade. Our programs use music, crafts, and games to help students discover their faith. All classes are taught by trained, enthusiastic volunteers who have been pre-screened to ensure that our Sunday School is of the highest quality. Sunday School is held on Sunday mornings at 8:30 and 11:15.
