Welcome to Children's Ministry!

We want learning about God to be fun and exciting!  We welcome children, grades 1-5, to join us each Sunday in a grade level LIFEgroup where they will:  

  • - be greeted by friendly, nurturing, and encouraging leaders;
  • - Learn, through Bible study, how to apply God’s word into their lives;
  • - grow a loving and lasting relationship with Jesus;
  • - create friendships with others.

It is our desire to share God’s love with every child to a point where they will choose to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.


LIFEgroups at Kempsville Road Location: 9:30 am and 11 am
LIFEgroups at Volvo Parkway Location: 9:30 am


To ensure the security and safety of each child we use the security check-in system Checkpoint. Parents will be directed to a kiosk to check-in their child. They will receive a name badge  for the child and a parent badge, which will show a new and unique matching number each week for security purposes. First time guests please sign-in at the Children’s Desk.


TeamKID: Going Vertical is a weekly discipleship study for all kids grades 1-5. TeamKID meets on Wednesdays from 6-7:30 PM in Room 220. Be sure to join us each week for exciting games, activities, and Bible study! For details, contact the Children's Ministry at children@firstnorfolk.org or 802-9516.


Grab your megaphones, lace up your cleats, and tune up those instruments! We're getting geared up for life's big game with LifeWay's 2018 VBS...Game On! We want to fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drum line so all players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize that God has given us His ultimate playbook. He wants us to join His team, train hard, celebrate salvation, and encourage one another. The game clock is ticking...VBS begins June 25-29, 2018!


We desire for every child to have a place where they can learn about God’s love and where families can worship and serve. We ask that parents register their child so that we may know best how to meet their needs. We use combinations of an orientation, short-term pull out class, and integration of special needs children into the existing LIFEgroups with ‘buddies.'
