Children & Youth

We recognize at Port Nelson that each one of us is on a journey through life and that many people have a deep desire to grow spiritually. We believe that this growth happens in many ways through worship, prayer, study, service, action and more.

For more information about the following programs, please contact our Developer of Children’s Ministry, Developer of Youth Ministry, the Nursery Coordinator or the church office.
