About Northgate Kids

The children of Northgate have a place to call their own! The Northgate Kids area is a place of wonder and discovery – where children learn Biblical truths.

Our goal for each weekend service is to create an environment that will be both educational and entertaining. We want to capture your child's imagination, intrigue them, and set them on a course of discovery and purpose. Areas are designed to help represent Biblical themes and stories. These places will help your child see the themes and stories of the Bible come alive!

When your child arrives on campus, they will be greeted by one of our children ministry volunteers. All of our carefully-screened leaders have completed an extensive training program and are committed to the safety of your child. A computerized process makes it quick, simple and safe to check your children into the classrooms.

Our children's program is as diverse as the children we serve. During all weekend services, Northgate Kids is offered for newborns through fifth graders. Each week's lesson is designed with the individual child in mind. Each child is taught in an age-appropriate environment. In each classroom, our desire is to see each child be cared for in an individual way. From loving care in the nursery to music in the elementary class, your child will be cared for in a safe, loving and encouraging environment.


If you are needed to return to your child's classroom, we will send a text to your cell phone. Please be sure to update your cell phone number and mobile provider at any check-in station and make sure it is on vibrate (not silent) when you go into church.

All children ministry volunteers have been screened and have completed a background check. They also participate in on-going training to better support your child during services.
