Novesta's Children Ministry

Our mission is to raise children to know and love the Lord with all their heart, soul, and mind. At Novesta, we strive with excellence to engage the youth in many different ways. Check out all the opportunities that your child can experience to learn about God's Word and make new friends. If you see something that interests you or your child feel free to contact Austin Keller for more questions. 

  • BIble school/ Junior Church

    Novesta provides a fun and exciting experience where kids ages 2yrs-5th grade get to dive into God's Word and understand it according to their age. For Bible School the children are studying the "Life of Jesus" through a program called "Dig In" and for Jr. Church (the children are going through a program called "Orange," in which they get to learn about different Bible stories and how it is applies to their life. Stop by anytime on Sunday and let your child get plug-in to our amazing programs.


  • Shine

    Our Wednesday after school Shine program happens during the Fall and Winter seasons and runs approximately 10 weeks each session. Shine is one hour of jam packed learning, fellowship, games, and worship! Transportation provided!!



  • Summer bible learning program

    Our Bible Learning Program takes place during the summer months of the year. The purpose of this program is for the kids to learn and memorize the Scriptures and hopefully tuck them away in their hearts.  Students earn points based on their age, and for those that earn their required amount of points, there is a special reward awaiting them at the end of the summer!  This year we had a pizza & beach party...those who earned a crazy amount of points also got to go to Splash Village! 




  • Pocket-pals

    Pocket-Pals is an awesome program where kids and adults get paired together to exchange notes, encouragements and getting-to-know you info, all in hopes of making a new friend at church, who just happens to be far out of their age range!  It's wonderful to see the kids and adults bridge the age gap and reach out to someone they may not have done on their own.  The program usually runs about a month long and ends with a fun breakfast time that the pocket pals share together.


  • vacation bible school

    Vacation Bible School is a awesome week long experience that takes place during the summer once school is out. Kids, ages 3yrs-5th grade, get to learn the truth about God's Word, create fun crafts, engage in energetic kid friendly worship, play exciting games and even learn about one of our supported missionaries!  Come see what all the fun is about!!

  • beginner bowl

    Beginner Bowl goes through much of the school year, beginning in September and ending in March. This program challenges the children to memorize and quote particular portions of the Bible and compete against other teams on a monthly basis. Beginner Bowl is an amazing opportunity for your child to learn the Bible in a fun, high energy, creative atmosphere; make new friends and even travel to fun places!  This year we will be traveling to Hershey, PA for a fall tournament, and in the spring, we travel to Louisville, KY for our national competition!

  • harvest fest

    Harvest Fest is a fun day in October where kids (up to 6th grade) dress up in their "non-scary" costumes and enjoy a safe, kid friendly, carnival style event created with kids in mind!  The church is totally transformed into all things fall with fun games, yummy carnival style food, great prizes and TONS of candy!   Come see what all the fun is about on October 28th from 11am-1pm!

  • Christmas Program

    Our Children's Christmas Program is an event where the kids share simple skits and times of special music with the congregation that help us remember the true meaning of Christmas, which is the birth of our Savior!  Does your child love making music or doing plays? This is would be a great opportunity for them!  So be watching for practice days and times so they can be a part of this awesome event!
