Northside’s Nursery Ministry is dedicated to our babies between the ages of 6 weeks to 18 months. Our caring leaders help cultivate a safe, welcoming space for your baby to learn, grow, and be loved. Our hope is that you, as a parent, are able to attend service and create a partnership with us in discipling your child. We thank you wholeheartedly for entrusting us with your most precious gift from the Lord.
When you step into Discovertown, you can expect to see, hear, and experience all the fun! Northside’s Early Childhood Ministry is dedicated to our littles between the ages of 18 months to four years old. We help to cultivate an exciting, engaging space for our children to interact with others, sing and dance through worship, and personally encounter the kind of love that God has for us! We pray that our children who enter the hallway can discover the beauty of all the wonderful things that God made, with the best being YOU and ME! We understand the importance of your child being with others that are the same age. In Discovertown, we provide four unique environments for your children to learn and grow alongside others at the same developmental level.
Our Early Elementary Ministry provides a safe and fun place for your children Pre-K through Second Grade to experience God in an age-appropriate way! We begin and end our services in small groups where your children have an opportunity to find community and build relationships with children their age and volunteers who lead them each week. During each service, we come together for a large group service where we play games, take offering, worship together, and learn about the Bible in a way that is easy for your child to grasp.
Every weekend, your child in third through fifth grade will come to a Kidside service where they get to experience dynamic worship and Biblical teaching. Most of their time is spent in Small Groups to give them the benefit of a consistent Group Leader and interaction with kids their age. Together, they learn about the Bible and how to have a relationship with God, as well as memorize scripture, and have fun developing friendships with each other.
This ministry exists to connect children with disabilities into the life and community of Northside Christian Church. We believe each child has an opportunity to hear the gospel and feel the love of Christ. To shepherd kids best, we provide a one-on-one buddy system to ensure that each child is immersed in an inclusive environment with the comfort of a buddy to walk with them throughout each of our weekend services. Our goal is to meet each child where they are and provide them with the services they need to understand the gospel at their level.

We intentionally partner with parents and shepherd kids by creating environments where they are...

Connecting with Consistent Leaders

Our leaders are dedicated, trusted, and equipped individuals who desire to know your child and bring excitement in learning about God and who He created them to be! Our goal is for your child to be with the same leaders each week. As they build a relationship with their leaders, we hope they’ll share, ask questions, and feel supported and cared for as they grow in their faith.

Making Friends

God designed us for community! We want to provide an environment for your child to build healthy relationships with other kids their age. Making friends and growing alongside their peers is an important part of their spiritual growth.

Learning through Age-Specific Lessons

Kids need different things at different ages, and we want to help your child understand and learn God’s Word at a pace that is easy for them to understand and retain. As your child ages through Kidside, the lessons will age with them to ensure that they are relevant and engaging for your child.

Engaging in Praise and Worship

We invite God’s presence into our lives through praise and worship, and we want your children to grow up understanding and experiencing the joy and benefit of worshiping Him.

Memorizing God’s Word

God tells us to hide His Word in our hearts (Psalm 119:11). One of the most important ways we help your children build a Biblical foundation for their lives is by filling their minds and hearts with God’s truth through scripture memorization. Each month we will have a new memory verse that we will learn by using motions, coloring pages, and lots of repetition!

We also encourage parents to download the Kids Bible App. It's a great resource to aid your children's memorization during the week!

Bringing the Love of Jesus Home

We aspire for your child to transfer what they learn at church and apply it to their life at home. In a broader aspect, our goal is for your family to grow together spiritually so that we, as a Church, can continue the mission of Jesus in reaching our community and making disciples. (Matthew 28:18-20)
