Our Kids Church service happens each Sunday in every service. Kids in 1st through 3rd Grade spend time learning and worshiping in a high-energy, highly interactive format. We combine the kids for Large Group teaching, but the kids spend the majority of the service in their small groups where they have more personal, practical, and engaging teaching specifically designed for their grade level. Singing, dancing, video, drama, and interesting Bible teaching take place in a large group. When they gather in small groups with kids in their grade, they connect with each other and learn from each other and their leader while participating in activities and games that reinforce the main point of the day, Bible story & Scripture memory.
On your way home, be sure to ask your child: “What did you learn today?” and “Did you have fun?” This gives your child an opportunity to share what they learned and also helps to reinforce the knowledge they gained! Our elementary kids receive a family devotional each week. These cards give parents and kids opportunities to follow up at home to go deeper into what they learned at church by discussing the topic as a family. They can bring them back on their next visit for a small piece of candy. For more information about current series and updates, visit the NPKids Facebook page
At North Pointe Church, we believe we have a responsibility to minister directly to the unique needs of preteens. We understand that nine through twelve year olds are going through a very important time of their lives. They are facing a lot of changes physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. It is essential during this time frame that preteens embrace a new level of faith ownership.
We have a unique transitional ministry specifically built for preteens. Our 4th, 5th, and 6th Graders have their own worship experience that will prepare them to transition into the student ministry. Our preteens start out every week in the main service for worship. They sit together in rows with their leaders. This gives the kids an opportunity to join the corporate worship setting and experience authentic live worship as they connect with God. Before the sermon starts, the group slips out together to their classroom, where they spend about 40 minutes doing a highly interactive lesson written specifically for preteens. They make vital connections with their peers and with caring leaders who are passionate about discipling kids in this specific phase of their lives.
Discovery Camp is our summer day camp for kids entering Kindergarten through 6th Grade. Discovery Camp gives kids opportunities to choose a focus area and participate in activities like sports, science, cooking, dance, art, or building. We had an extremely successful camp in June 2019. We are looking forward to next year’s camp already!
