CHILDREN, Kids with dads

Children @ NLC

Children are a key component in church life. They bring wonder and laughter into our lives. Children’s and Family Ministry gathers and celebrates children while fostering love of Jesus Christ in a warm and loving community of faith.

  • We help children discover God’s love and live their faith every day.
  • We offer an innovative partnership that recognizes parents as the most important person in a child’s faith development.
  • Both adults and children will grow in relationship with God and each other.

Communion Chalice


First Communion

All are welcome to the table as baptized members of God’s family. Choosing to begin Communion is a family decision and parents and children are encouraged to discuss together when a child is ready to take Communion. We invite all children in grades 3-5 to their First Communion, though anyone who wishes to receive instruction is welcome, regardless of age. A parent/child instruction retreat is held during Lent. First Communion is celebrated at worship on Maundy Thursday. Questions? Contact our Director of Children & Family Ministry, Kari Warnke at 952.977.9350 or
