What Is The Purpose Of NEPC Kids?

The purpose of the Kids Ministry is to capture the hearts of children for Christ through creative Bible teaching and consistent sharing of Christ’s love.

Get Connected With NEPC Kids


NEPC KIDS is our student interactive teaching experience for kids Preschool and Elementary age. NEPC Kids connect through large group worship and Bible teaching. They are later dismissed to small group teaching.

“NEPC KIDS” runs concurrently with the regular worship services times

At 10:00 AM & 11:15 AM.

Preschool Nursery Ministries (infants through 2 year olds) runs concurrently with 10:00 and 11:15 services.

Drop off for all of NEPC Kids Ministry is located at the Kids Welcome Desk! Simply go to the lower level of the main building and guides will direct you to the desk to check in and where your child’s classroom will be.



Billy Bob’s Barnyard Theater

Over the course of theatrical history, a small handful of thespians have delivered performances that can only be described as genius!

Billy Bob and his unreliable band of barnyard actors are not among them. Not even close! In fact, for one reason or another, they can’t even seem to make their way on stage. No worries, though! As everyone always says, “The baby Jesus barnyard Christmas show must go on!” During “Billy Bob’s Barnyard Theater,” kids will jump to the rescue by acting out four different stories about the greatest gift the world has ever know—the gift of Jesus.

Ladies and gentlemen, kids of all ages—welcome to “The Great Shadow Show.”

During the “show”, preschool kids will see a series of shadows and guess what’s going on behind the curtain. With each guess, the Bible story emerges from the dark and sheds light on our great and mighty God. Without a shadow of a doubt, it’s the greatest show in church!
