Recess Kids Ministry
Recess Ministries is dedicated to teaching kids the gospel in a way that is fun, exciting and encouraging. We want to equip them with the tools necessary to lead a life free from the entanglements of sin and to help them grow spiritually. We aspire to teach them the importance of hiding God’s word in their hearts and the blessings that come from knowing Him. We also promote family unity, spiritual growth and of course, have lots of fun in the process!
Infants 6 weeks through 6 months are checked in at the counter right outside their room. Volunteers with a heart for babies will care for and tend to each child’s personal needs. Equipped with all the comforts of home, the Nursery provides modern toys that stimulate and promote physical as well as social development.
Children are promoted to the Toddler room when they turn 2 years old and are walking with confidence. After checking in at the Toddlers counter, children receive an age-appropriate Bible lesson with a snack, and then engage in free play with their peers.
Children who are 3 years old and potty trained are promoted to the Preschool room. Preschoolers are checked in at the classroom door of the preschool class. They will spend half of their time in free play promoting social and physical development. Preschoolers also enjoy an age-appropriate Bible lesson, singing, and a craft time.
Kids who are Kindergarten through 6th grade meet in the Gym during the 10:00 AM Sunday morning service. All kids are checked in at the door where they pick up their name tags and head in the door for a high energy, fun filled time of worship, teaching and small groups. Join us as we trek through God’s Word each week!
Wednesday nights from 7:00pm-8:00pm. All kids are invited to join us for an awesome adventure through God’s Word. We will meet in the age and grade appropriate classrooms in the Children’s Wing. Please look for signs to direct you to the correct spot. Your kids will not want to miss this great hour of ministry time!
Look for the schedule of Quiz Meets coming soon!

Get involved in Lifegroups!
We provide opportunities for men to gather and do activities that will grow relationships with other men and also to strengthen their love for God.
Activities include fishing trips, corn toss tournaments, pancake breakfasts, and more.
We want to encourage women to grow in their personal relationship with the Christ by equipping them for service and fostering an atmosphere in which Christ-centered friendships can bloom.
The 55+ Ministry at NAFCON is vitally important to who we are as a church. Our goal is to challenge those that are in the “Second Half” of life to make it their best half. No conversations about rocking on the front porch will be found here! We seek to encourage adults age 55+ to find out what God wants them to be doing in their “Second Half” and then help equip them to do it.
We love to have fun! We offer a variety of ways to connect through recreation. We have a bowling league, couples euchre nights, men’s basketball, co-ed softball, and corn toss tournaments. We’d love for you to join the fun.
These teams are made up of individuals who desire to help guests feel welcome in our Church. We understand the importance of people feeling loved and accepted. Its our desire to help connect individuals to God, our Church, and opportunities to serve.
