Children’s Ministry

At NRUMC, we understand how children are the foundation of tomorrow’s church, even today’s church! There are a wide variety of children’s programs and activities to help them embrace the love of God and understand the teachings of the Bible and Wesleyan tenets of the Christian faith.
