For babies through 5th grade

Jesus loves children and desires for them to come to Him and so do we! It’s our desire to complement your efforts as you raise your child to follow Jesus and become who He designed your child to be. If you are a parent, grandparent, or guardian we are committed to creating tools that assist you to bring your child close to Jesus.

Sunday Mornings

If this is your first time visiting our church - Welcome! Please stop by our Welcome Center, located right inside the main entrance. We will help you register your children and help you find your child's room. Our Sunday mornings are geared specifically toward the developmental needs of each child's age group. During the course of the morning, your child will experience a small group environment and a large group worship time uniquely designed to move them toward a relationship with Jesus. We want each child that enters our classrooms to be known, encouraged, and challenged. Children's Ministry is offered during our 9:30 and 11:05 AM services.  

Security/Check-in

Because child safety is of utmost importance, our Children’s Neighborhood is a secured area. Only parents and guardians with a Pick-up Tag for a child will be admitted to the area when classes are in session. Help us do all we can to keep this area safe.

Wednesday Evenings

New Covenant loves families! Our desire is to come alongside you as you disciple your children. We offer a gathering for the family unit four times a year (September, November, February, May). On the first Wednesday of these months, we will equip parents, engage kids and encourage you to connect as a family and with your community (or your neighbors). During the months between our gatherings, we will send you out on expeditions in the Cedar Rapids area.

MTAs (3rd – 5th Grade)  

Ministry Training Academies release children to experience being a partner with Jesus in ministry. MTAs train children how to serve in ministry while simultaneously helping them grow spiritually. In addition to keeping upper elementary children engaged in church, it activates them to be a contributing member of our church family. Ministries include worship, audio/video/sound technology, photography, set designs, drama, puppetry, and games.
