We are committed to providing great resources for teaching your kids about Jesus and navigating our world. We want to partner with you as you help your kids find and follow Jesus.

The Parent Cue App
This free app gives parents weekly, age-specific, cues for every one of your kids. The app will connect you with Bible stories and verses to discuss with your child, and it will cue you with words to say and things to do connected with the naturally occurring times that already happen every day. Create an account, enter your family info, and sync with New City Church (2500 CARMEL RD CHARLOTTE 28226).
