NewLife Community Lutheran Church of Swartz Creek, MI


Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’    ~Matthew 19:14


At NewLife, we invest in the lives of the next generation of believers. From infants to young adults, we have programs specific for spiritual growth during different developmental stages. Our goal is to provide a safe and caring environment where children of all ages can grow in their faith and learn about God and what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. At NewLife, we give kids and their families the tools to become His fully-devoted followers!



We understand how difficult it can be to worship with small children. At NewLife, we provide your infant and toddler with a safe and loving environment in which he or she will can play, cuddled, be fed or changed. It is professionally staffed with experienced adults who are properly trained to care for your child.

Our nursery is located off the north side of our Worship Center and easily available for you to peek in or even stay with your young one. You are more than welcome to stay in the nursery with your child and, as a bonus, we have technology so you’re still able to hear the worship service!

The nursery is available to you during our 10:30 AM worship service and during our Wednesday evening classes.


During our 10:30 AM worship service, kids will experience Bible truths in ways they enjoy and understand. As kids dig into the Bible with creative activities, they’ll soak up life-changing lessons that will really stick. Plus, they’ll build relationships with one another, apply Bible truths to their daily lives and even pray for each other.


Our Kids Church Ministry Team has designed a unique learning experience for this year. We will be focusing on three themes:

  • God Loves Us – How do we know?
  • We Love God – How do we love Him actively?
  • Because of God’s Love, We Love Others – How do we love others actively?

Using the Cross Explorations curriculum by Concordia Publishing House, our teachers will be helping your kids understand the truths of God’s Word in meaningful and relevant ways that engage both their minds and hearts.

Classes are customized for each age group. Lessons are designed to prepare NewLife kids for their eventual participation in pre-confirmation and confirmation classes, as well as offer all children an opportunity to learn more about God working in their lives.

If you are looking for an environment to help your kids love and follow God, come hang out with us at 10:30.
