Since NorthPointe has moved online, that means you’ll be doing church together as a family while at home (or at the park, or wherever!). At our NP Kids at Home page, you can find suggestions on great ways to make worshipping together fun and meaningful for everyone.
We’ve also provided some important Family Resources that will help you talk with your kids (from a Christ-centered perspective), stay connected with your church family, and get updated information and tips.
If you’re new to NorthPointe, continue reading below to learn about the ministry of NP Kids. You’ll learn why we feel it’s so important to reflect God’s love to your child in fun, relevant, and meaningful ways.
When you come to NorthPointe, our NP Kids signs will direct you to our children’s buildings, in each room you’ll find our children’s check-in stations. Our helpful team members will ask you to relay some brief information about your family, and will be available to answer any questions.
The littlest ones of NP Kids are important to us! Our nursery is staffed with professional, caring adults who provide a safe and fun environment for your child. We believe that even babies can learn how much God loves them! The Nursery is divided into two classes based on mobility: Babies, for infants from birth to age one or until your child is walking, and walkers, for children walking up to 2 years old.
The nursery is located inside our main worship center, and opens for check-in 15 minutes prior to service. Upon check-in, you will receive a set of stickers with with a family identification number for you and your child. When service concludes, you can pick up your child at their class by presenting your matching sticker. No child is released unless the matching identification sticker is presented.
What to bring: Please feel free to bring a diaper bag with a change of clothes, pacifier, bottle, sippy cup or anything else that your child may need during their stay. In case you forget your diaper bag, we have extra diapers, wipes and even some extra clothes on hand if needed.
What to leave at home: Please leave other snacks, especially those with peanuts or peanut butter in them, at home. We have many children who have allergies.
We operate a well-child environment. For the protection of all the children in our ministry, we cannot accept a child with a runny nose, fresh cold (four days or less), fever, rash, persistent cough, diarrhea or any other signs of illness. We request that you not place your child in the program while they are at risk of exposing other children. Thank you in advance for helping us to keep NP Kids a healthy place!
NP Kids offers a place where elementary aged children can discover and develop a passion for God. Through worship, teaching and a variety of fun activities, including small groups, children are exposed to God’s word and challenged to grow in their relationship with God.
NP Kids are divided into classes for 2 & 3 year olds, 4’s & Pre-K, 1st & 2nd grade, 3rd & 4th grade, and 5th & 6th grade. Upon check-in, you will receive a security badge (2nd grade and younger, only). When service concludes, you can pick up your child at their class by presenting your matching security badge.
Growing from a kid into a teenager can be an awesome time in life. The Outlet is designed to help 5th and 6th graders discover who God is and feel confident about who they are in Him. The Outlet is a fun environment filled with games like xbox, air hockey, foosball, basketball and much much more. At The Outlet, we want kids to discover how they can get plugged in to God!
Look for one of our guest services team members, we will meet your family and direct you to your child’s classroom to check-in. At check-in we will ask for the following personal information: family member’s names, children’s names, and birthdates, family address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child.
Upon check-in, you will receive a set of stickers with with a family identification number for you and your child. When service concludes, you can pick up your child at their class by presenting your matching sticker. No child is released unless the matching identification sticker is presented.
We exist to SHARE Jesus with the kids in our community, TEAM them with other Christians, help them ACTIVATE their spiritual growth so they can REACH their world for Christ and SURRENDER their lives to God.
Our Ministry Goal:
We want to team with parents to unleash Christ-centered, Biblically anchored world changers!
Our Ministry Strategy:
We will accomplish our mission and see our goal met as we are intentionally serving kids on a weekly basis through 3 key elements:
‘Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?’ Jesus replied, ‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart,you’re your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself. The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.’ – Matthew 22:36–40 (NLT)

I should treat others the way I want to be treated, I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what!
Love Others by Desiring to Make a Difference (5th and 6th Grade)
