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

Children’s Ministry

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.

Sundays, 10:00am

Nursery is open for kids 2 and under. Ages 3 and up will be with their parents during the main service.

BEND NAZ KIDS: Wednesday Nights!

Our Wednesday Night Kids’ Program is back on (masks required). Bring your kids to enjoy an evening of fun with friends, while learning and growing in their love and knowledge of Jesus!

Wednesdays, Gym, 6:30-7:30pm (8:00pm for those whose parents are in a Wed. night Bible Study)

eXpedition (5th and 6th grade)

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.

Sundays, 10:00am

5th and 6th graders will remain with their parents in the main service.

eXpedition Wednesday Nights

We meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8pm in the Gym

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 where you’re at in your walk: if you aren’t even sure if there is a God, if you are searching for God, or if you were born in a church 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.

Sundays, 10:00am

Our Ignite Student Ministry remains in the main service.

Ignite Youth Group
