Children's Ministries

TNC wants to reach as many children as possible and help them develop a personal relationship with Christ that is rooted in their everyday lives.


Through the demonstration of real life examples of Christ and His love, we train teachers and volunteers to reach children deeply with unconditional love. We partner with parents in developing a child's spiritual walk on a daily basis. We deliver the "Good News" in an interactive way that children can relate to with enthusiasm.

Your children can be involved in life-changing experiences here at TNC.


Connect with Pastor Debbie Hallman, Children's Pastor, to get more information on these fun learning activities.

  • Caravan

    Meets Wednesdays, 7:00–8:00 pm, September through May

    "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men" Luke 2:52

     

    The Caravan ministry exists to help elementary-age children become more like Jesus by encouraging their growth in the four specific areas mentioned in Luke 2:52: mental (wisdom), physical (stature), spiritual (favor with God), and social (favor with men).

     

    Caravan is a time for children to learn how they can grow in all areas of their lives. It also helps children develop an appreciation for and understanding of Nazarene heritage and beliefs.

     

    Through TNC, Caravaners earn badges while learning Core Values, the Articles of Faith of the Church of the Nazarene, and various skill badges. Many are earned while on our two annual camping trips. The district holds a Caravan Winter Retreat where TNC Caravaners join in the fun and learning.

  • Quizzing

    Meets Sundays, 6:00 pm

    "Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds;…Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up…So that your days and the days of your children will be many…" Deuteronomy 11:18–21

     

    Bible Quizzing is a fun-filled experience that can make a life-long impact in the life of each child. Each child has the opportunity to memorize God’s Word in a fun way. The teamwork involved teaches them to learn and compete together, spending time practicing and quizzing with other teams. Another important aspect of Bible Quizzing is the mentoring that takes place between the coach and the team. It is an awesome opportunity for a coach to pour into the lives of each quizzer in a personal and spiritual way.
