RCNAZ offers several outstanding Christian programs throughout the year for kids of all ages. We offer a positive and exciting learning environment fit with age-tailored Bible lessons and activities. We strive to follow along with the message of Sunday morning service to encourage family unity and discussion in the Word. Our nursery is open for children ages 0 to 3 for care with a qualified adult. For grades 6th to 12th, please check out our RCNAZ Youth page.


* COVID GUIDELINES UPDATE: At this time, we recommend that children remain in the care of an adult of their same household while attending services. There is no nursery worker provided at this time, but the nursery is open for children with an accompanying adult. Sunday School and Children's Church are not meeting in church (but we hope to return very soon!) Coloring kits are available during 9:00am & 10:45am Worship services. We look forward to seeing our families together in the Sanctuary. See more info. below...

We are encouraging our kids to read while they learn about Nazarene Missions all over the world. We will share a children's Missions Book during Sunday Children's Church. They will discover the value of following Christ through the engaging stories of our missionaries. Each lesson is followed by a fun craft which is inspired by the story. We are building a foundation for our children to learn about serving the God we love and the people He loves.
Each child who participates in our Missions book day will be eligible to attend our annual Nazarene Mission Book Readers Ice Cream Party! (Missions book days vary. Children's Church is every Sunday at 10:30am.)
Kids are encouraged to borrow our children's Nazarene Mission Books to read at home or have an adult read to them. For every book completed, they will receive prizes, rewards and is also eligible to attend the NMI Missions Book Readers ice cream party! Share as a family good discipleship in the Lord and the love of others. 
*Children's Missions Books are free to check out and are available in the Children's Annex. Books are limited. Please don't forget to write your name in the check-out log and return within 30 days.
Thanks for Reading!
