Our vision in New Life Kids Church is to help elementary kids find and follow Jesus. The Orange Strategy is used across all age groups at New Life. In our ministry, we use the 252 Basics curriculum. This curriculum combines the critical influences of the church and the home to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. Weekly resources are used in our ministry and provided to families to ensure that every kid grows up believing ......
- I can trust God no matter what.
- I need to make the wise choice.
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Crews have a rotating schedule of the following 3 stations:
The kids do craft service projects to be a blessing to other people. These vary month to month. (check out the schedule below)
The kids play games to build community with their Crew and Crew Coaches.
Sometimes they are traditional games (kickball, freeze tag) other times creative new activities to match and help illustrate the lesson for the month.
The kids enjoy a snack, often a sweet one since it is after dinner time, with their friends and Crew Coaches.
Sometimes a simple treat, other times a creation of its own to complement the lesson!
