Kids & Youth Registration

Register now for the 2020/21 year at NRUMC!

We are all trying our best to navigat this year safely for all kids, families, and volunteers. At this time we do not have any of our typical muiscal or creative ministry opportunities. At this time, our children’s director, Cassidy Swanson, is putting together kits to help facilitate Sunday School lessons at home. If you are interested in a kit, please email her at 

For middle school through high school, some youth group meetings are taking place outside with masks and with social distance measures and online when the weather is not cooperating.  There will also be Sunday School on Zoom available. If you are interested in any youth activity, click the button below to get your youth signed up for Sunday night youth (High School), Wednesday night youth (Middle School), and Sunday morning Sunday School. 

Music and creative groups share in worship a few times each semester.
