West Little Rock Ministries


New Life Church is passionate about the next generation! From infants to young adults, we love investing in the future and believe that the future is exceptionally bright. Next Gen ministries are focused on providing age-appropriate opportunities for spiritual growth and development, discipleship, and community in fun and engaging environments. We are committed to our church-wide mission of reaching our friends and family with the life-giving message of Jesus, to see them become fully devoted followers of Christ.



Little Life is for our youngest New Lifers, 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 in an engaging and age-appropriate setting. 

This ministry meets Sundays at our 10:00AM service. For more information, contact Kristen Sides at



Kid Life is our ministry for elementary-aged kids. Our goal is for every child to learn who God is and discover their identity in Him. We want to pave the way for each of them to make Jesus the boss of their lives! We believe in engaging their energy, imagination, and potential as we help them develop as children of God and the leaders they are called to be. You can expect exuberant worship, small group time, game time, and Biblical truths that encourage growth in their relationships with Jesus.

This ministry is offered at 10:00AM during Sunday service. For more information, check out @kidlifewlr on Instagram or contact Kevin Little at



Youth Middle is our ministry for middle school students. This ministry strives to encourage students in their walks with Christ as they approach their teenage years. We are committed to partnering with parents as we offer relevant and Biblical teaching, fun, life-giving community, and a safe space to learn and grow in these formative years. We are intentional about teaching students how to study God’s word and that their true identity is found in Christ. We desire for every student to come to know how desperately God loves them and that they have been intentionally created with a purpose for their lives.

Youth Middle meets weekly on Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00pm. For more information, check out @nlcmiddle.wlr on Instagram or email Madie Drabble at



Youth is our ministry for junior high and high schoolers. The Youth are the future of our church, and we believe their future is now! Our prayer is that our students can encounter God’s presence alongside life-giving community. We strive to teach the truth directly from the Word of God because the Word inspires people and ignites real life change for all ages. We want to equip our students to know God and impact others in their schools, jobs, and communities with the life-giving love of Christ. 

Youth meets on on Wednesdays at 6:30pm. For more information, visit @nlcyouth.wlr on Instagram or email Tanner Bezet at

Adult Ministries:


YA is the young adult ministry of NLC. YA is for anyone post-college age, single or married, without kids.
