CHILDREN AND YOUTH
spark. expedition. ignite.
We believe that one of the most important ministries of the church is to the children. Here at Bend Church of the Nazarene we strive to provide our kids with an environment that will nurture and grow them in the truth of God’s Word
Our desire is to support families in raising a generation of children who know and walk in relationship with Jesus. Our volunteers are passionate and intentional about creating an environment that is warm and welcoming; bringing worship and teachings to life with age-appropriate Bible stories and activities.

5th and 6th Grade eXpedition
At Bend Naz our pre-teen ministry for 5th & 6th graders is called eXpedition. eXpedition is a relationship focused ministry that exists to encourage preteens in the growth of their faith in Christ. Our Wednesday night program focuses on encouraging our preteens to love God and love people. We explore God’s word, connect with caring adult leaders, play games, hang out and have fun with friends.
5th and 6th graders will be with their parents in the sanctuary until dismissed for Children’s Church. They meet in Room 9 for Sunday School.
5th and 6th graders will remain with their parents in the sanctuary for this service.

IGNITE Student Ministry
As a student you know how busy and challenging life can be. Living a Christian life and being part of a church can seem like just one more thing to cross off your to do list. However, developing a personal relationship with Jesus and being part of the church are some of the most important and life changing things you can do. We want to help you on your spiritual journey. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t sure if there is a God, or if you are searching for God, or even if you were born in a pew, we want to be there for you. Our goal is that you will realize that living life to the fullest is done by having a personal and active relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our Ignite Student Ministry meets for Sunday School at 9am in the Youth Room.
Our Ignite Student Ministry remains in the sanctuary for this service.
