NMC Kids Podcast
We're thrilled to share another great resource for you to use in discipling your kids, a brand new podcast we've created called Talk of the Town. Episodes will release every Thursday on both Spotify and Apple podcast platforms!
Town Square Online
Even when your kids can't worship on campus at Town Square, they can join us on our NMC Kids YouTube channel every Sunday. There you’ll find a full curriculum put together by our amazing NMC Kids staff that will allow them to hear God’s Word, sing, pray, and, of course, have some fun! On the channel, you'll find age-appropriate content for all of our classrooms, as well as optional printable activities and parent guides to help disciple your kids through the lesson.

Books in Motion
The Books in Motion strategy is a fun multi-sensory approach that teaches students the books of the Bible. In addition to learning the books in order, the hand motions remind children of a story from each of the books and help them become independent readers of God’s Word. Enjoy!

Family Journal Pages
The Family Journal Pages are a follow-up activity from NMC Kids Sunday morning Bible lesson. There are Family Discussion Starters that give parents a launching point into great discussion with their kids about the Gospel. The Family Journal Pages also include the Bible stories that have been talked about in Town Square with comprehension questions to follow up the reading. This is a great tool to use as a family to partner together with NMC Kids.

Presenting the Gospel to Kids
The reason we chose The Gospel Project for our preschool and elementary curriculum is because it points the weekly Bible story to Jesus every time. The Gospel is the reason we open our doors every week! Because it’s so important, we’ve collected a few resources to guide you through some steps; from presenting the Gospel, to discussing the Gospel and to what we all pray for, a confession that Jesus is their personal Savior.
