Russellville Children & Student 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.
