Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not
hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Matthew 19:14

And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.  Luke 2:52

Children's Ministry

Children’s Ministry at Northern Hills is for children who are newborn through 5th grade.  Our staff and volunteers are passionate about helping children understand the love of Christ through age-appropriate lessons, play, and music.  Children’s Ministry includes everything from rocking babies in the nursery to a mission week for 5th graders, VBS, and everything in between.  It’s a busy, but meaningful ministry, and we’d love to partner with you in raising your kids to know Christ!

Children's Moment

Children's Moment takes place during each of the morning worship services.  Children are welcome to join their parents in church for the beginning of the service and then are invited to Children's Moment.  They can then go to Sunday School or back to join their parents for the remainder of the service.  Adult staff and volunteers lead the kids to Sunday School after Children's Moment.

Children's Bulletin

There are children's bulletins for your child, so that they can follow along with the service.  You will find them at the back of the Worship Center or Sanctuary.  Don't forget to grab a bag of coloring pencils for the picture on the back of the bulletin.

I'm new!  What do I need to know?


Save time by registering your children early! 

We always want to know the specific needs of your family, so we can take care of your kids best. For this reason, we have all new families fill out a Family Registration form.  If you'd like to come prepared, email our director to get the form ahead of time!

Email Katherine

Come early

Don't be stressed about making it to service on time!  Be sure to come early to give yourself plenty of time to meet the team, drop your kids off, and grab a cup of coffee before heading into the Worship Center or Sanctuary. 

How do you screen teachers/volunteers in Children's Ministry?

All Children's Ministry staff and volunteers have background checks.  Volunteers also attend Safe Gatherings training, that is mandated and run by the conference.
