Children's Ministry

K-1 Explorers is a place for children to encounter God’s love through wonder and play.  With live bible teaching, engaging games, and meaningful sensory stations, your child will experience the joy of knowing God in a safe and fun environment!

In Safari 2-3, children are inspired to ask questions, share ideas, and work together as they discover God’s truth.  Through live worship, interactive stations, and friendship building activities, 2nd and 3rd graders will have a blast while growing in their understanding of God’s deep love for them!

Meet Jenni Balderson

Elementary Team Leader

Hi! I’m Jenni and I feel so privileged to be part of the children’s ministry team here at NCCC.

I have been married 14 years to my sweet, spontaneous, John Wayne-ish, surfer husband named Jim. Together we get to care for the most wonderful little people: Ezra, Santiago, Violette and Tobias.

I feel most alive while reading the Word with my morning coffee, running the shoreline on a cloudy day, watching my kids in the waves with their dad, living and growing with community, and most of all, sharing the Good News of God’s love with your kiddos and mine!

It is a joy to be serving here and I truly can’t wait to partner with and build relationships with you and your kids!

Check out how much fun we had at our K-3rd Grade Family Beach Day!
