Children's Ministry

“Let the little children come to me,” Jesus said. (Matthew 19:14)

At New Life Church of Hershey, children are a valued and vital part of our church community! All of our children’s programs are designed to provide a safe and welcoming place for your child to know Jesus, become more like him and to make him known.

Sunday Morning:

  • Nursery care for infants and toddlers (through age 2) is provided during the entire Worship Service.
  • Preschool children (age 3-5) have a class during the entire service.
  • Elementary children (grades 1-5) are dismissed for their classes part way through the service.


  • Preschool KidZone takes place on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month (September – May) from 6:45-8 p.m. This time includes a Bible lesson, crafts, and lots of fun.
