Fort Smith Ministries


We believe in the next generation. NLC children’s ministry lays the foundation for knowing who God is and how to trust Him. Our students bring the fun and energy as they learn the Word in their services and life groups. From infants to young adults, we love investing in our future and current young leaders and their families.


Little Life is for the smallest members of our church. Little Life encompasses children from three months to five years old. We believe in helping children form a basis of truth for their lives by helping them understand God’s love for them and teaching them to worship Him. This ministry meets during our 9:15 and 10:45am services. For more information, contact Sarah Hansen at


Kid Life is our ministry for elementary-aged kids. Our goal is that these students learn who God is and discover their identity in Him. We believe in engaging their energy, imagination, and potential as we help develop them as children of God and the leaders they are called to be. This ministry is offered during the 9:15 and 10:45 Sunday services. For more information, check out @kidlife_fsm on Instagram or contact Sarah Hansen at

Student Ministries:

Youth Middle – GRADES 5-7

Youth Middle is our middle school ministry. Our heart for this ministry is to encourage your students in their walks with Christ as they grow into their teenage years. Youth Middle meets weekly during the 9:15 and 10:45 Sunday services and joins Youth for games and worship on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm. For more information, you can email Sam Hansen at
Youth – GRADES 8-12 Our high school students get to be a part of Youth. Community with other students and their leaders are at the heart of what we do, so life groups are a large priority in this ministry. We want to equip our students to know God and impact others at their schools, jobs, and communities with the love of Christ. Youth meets on Wednesdays at the church at 6:30pm.
