Have kids? No worries, we've got you covered. Northminster offers programs for kids from birth through 5th grade. If you're visiting us for the first time, our friendly staff and trained volunteers will show you where to go when you arrive. We will meet your family, check your child into class, and answer any questions you may have. We can't wait to meet you!

In person and online, kids are meeting Jesus and his mission for our lives. Be sure to stay up to date with the NPCKids & Family Update email - subscribe now! For information on any of our children’s ministry activities, please contact Kathy Mallgren, Director of Children's Ministry.

PHILOSOPHY

Even the youngest children should learn about Jesus and his love for us. Through our interactive, engaging programs, children learn while having fun. We create a safe and enjoyable environment for kids to grow in their faith and become strong, confident disciples of Jesus Christ.

 

At Northminster we seek through the Holy Spirit to help children come to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, grow in their faith, and go out into the world equipped to honor God throughout their lives. Nurturing families is a primary goal at Northminster. We strive to provide a safe, child-friendly place where your family can learn, praise, and celebrate together in Christ.
