"My kids wake ME up to go to church!"

"It's awesome!"

"It's my absolute favorite place to go!"

Jesus said, "Let the children come to me..." Matthew 19:14

Worshiping Jesus is FUN!
Activities are designed to show kids who Jesus is in an exciting, personal way, and that He is the reason behind everything we do!

At New Community, our goal is to partner with parents to help kids learn who God is, what He has done for us, and that we can trust Him no matter what.  
Sunday mornings are about serious fun - interactive worship, dramatic storytelling, and small group breakouts that help kids apply God's truth and build relationships.


We provide a full children's program during both services at 9:00a | 10:30a.  We have a secure check-in system that uses text messages as necessary directly to your mobile, so parents can engage in worship with peace of mind.

Ages 0 - 2

The Meadow is a loving, safe environment for little ones from birth to two years old. Our dedicated caregivers love to hold, rock, and interact with infants, our smallest guests. Older children have a full program of upbeat worship, fun and interactive Bible stories, simple crafts, and free play. It will be their favorite hour of the week!

Ages 3 - Pre-K

The Hollow is for kids three years old through pre-kindergarten. Our activities tickle all the senses, making mastering the concepts a blast. Crazy fun activities, crafts, large group Bible story, worship time – they’re all part of the plan to help children believe three key things: God made me. God loves me. Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

K - 5th

The Treehouse is a fun environment with dynamic kid-led worship, games, engaging Bible stories, and small group activities to connect Biblical truth to real life. Each child has a wonderful small group leader that cares about them! Our 4th and 5th graders start in the Treehouse for worship, then follow their small group leaders to the mansion for special preteen videos and activities. Parents can pick up 4th and 5th graders on the front porch of the mansion after the service. 

meet the kids team!

Kim Lubenow

Children's Ministry Pastor
I began volunteering in ministry with children and jr high students while I was in high school, and have been blessed to serve at New Community since 2001. I love seeing children develop their own faith, trust and friendship with Jesus, and discover that they can trust God no matter what. I get so much joy from seeing our team members develop as leaders and learn to use their gifts to serve kids and families!

Jen Amrine

Early Childhood Pastor
I’ve volunteered and worked in Children's Ministry for over 25 years. There are many things I enjoy about ministry, but my favorite aspect of it is the interactions I have with a child or a leader on my team. Working with kids to further their development and understanding that Jesus loves them no matter what is why I continue in my current position. This is where I feel God is using me every day.

Alison Schepel

Children's Ministry Coordinator
I have been involved in ministry since I was in high school. In addition to being part of the NC/KIDS team, I also volunteer with Women's Ministry at New Community and I help with Young Life in Maple Valley. My favorite part of ministry is definitely CAMP! Getting away to learn more about Jesus while also playing games and having late night talks and crazy adventures is the BEST!
