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.
