Next Live Service

Hot Springs Children & Student Ministries

We believe in the next generation. NLC children's ministry lays the foundation for knowing who God is and how to trust Him. Our students bring the fun and energy as they learn the Word in their services and life groups. From infants to young adults, we love investing in our future and current young leaders and their families.

Children's Ministries


Little Life – 0-5K

Little Life is for our smallest members of New Life. Our church is passionate about helping form a basis of truth for them, helping them understand God’s love for them, and teaching them to worship Him.

Kid Life – Grades 1-4 

Kid Life is our ministry for elementary-age kids. Here, we dive into who God is and their identity in Him. We believe in engaging their energy, imagination, and potential as we help develop them as children of God and the leaders they are called to be.

Four Twelve – Grades 5-7

Four Twelve middle school ministry meets as life groups and for worship services. Our leaders work to teach our students their value in Christ as they grow up into their teenage years. This ministry’s name is based on 1 Timothy 4:12, and our heart is to encourage our students to love and serve God.


Student Ministries


Real Life – Grades 8-12

Our high school students are a part of Real Life. Community with other students and their leaders are at the heart of this ministry, so most of what we do is with life groups. We want to equip our students to know God and impact people at their schools, jobs, and communities with the love of Christ.

NLC College – College-age Adults

Whether students are new to their city or transitioning from high school, NLC College cares about walking alongside college-age young adults, creating a community for them to continue their growth in Christ.
