Children Faith Formation

Welcome to Northminster’s Children’s Ministry. We are devoted to developing the  social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth of all children.  At Northminster, children learn that the church is a place where they belong, are loved, have friends, and find important service to do.   We have many programs designed to support your child’s faith formation throughout their childhood, all while keeping the grace and love of God at the center of our ministry.

At Northminster, we believe that children learn to worship by worshiping.  Therefore, we welcome children of all ages in our worship service.  The sound of little children reminds us all that Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.”  Matthew 19:14.

Nursery: Birth – Age 2

Northminster offers Nursery care to our littlest loves. Your child is always welcome in our nursery where they will be both loved and nurtured by our professional staff. Available every Sunday morning from 9am – 12pm, we provide a minimum of two adults to supervise the play and activities of all children. Background checks and reference checks are run on all our staff so that you can feel confident that your child will be safe and comfortable at all times.

Children’s Church: During Worship

Children’s Church is available on Sundays during worship for children ages 3 – 5th grade. At Northminster, children are asked to join their family for worship until after the children’s moment.  Children are then invited to gather in age-appropriate classes to examine the topics and stories that are being explored in worship that week. An effort is made to incorporate regular use of the Bible and to discuss the elements of worship with our children as they grow. Our goal is to provide all our children with a joyful and meaningful learning environment  where they are encouraged to know Jesus and to grow as followers of him.   We would love to have you come and join us for the fun!
