Kids Ministry

Investing in our future

In our Kids Ministry, our mission is to help kids find their way back to God, connect with others, and contribute to changing the world. We believe that kids have the capacity to walk intimately with God, and we love to see them learn about Him and connect with Him through Bible stories, songs, and crafts.

A staffed nursery is available during both services, and Kids Point (age-appropriate classes) is available for Pre K-5th grades during the 10:30 service. Our volunteers lead their classes through lessons and crafts that help kids grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord (2 Peter 3:18).

When you enter the building, check in at the Kids Point office (just past the nursery) to get name tags for each child and a secure check-out label for parents.

On 5th Sundays, Kids Point is postponed so that families can worship together during our Family Celebration.


Northern Hills Awana is for kids 4 years old through 5th grade. We gather each Wednesday evening from 6:15pm-7:30pm. Get connected by emailing us. Click Here for the Awana Sign up Form.

Each night, age-specific clubs lead kids through Game Time, Large Group Time, and Small Group Time. Qualified leaders build relationships with kids, teach them the Gospel, and help them memorize Scripture.

We believe that Awana is one way to help kids in the Northern Hills connect with God, serve Him with their lives, and grow as followers of Jesus. Join us in this mission by sending your child to Awana or serving alongside an incredible team of volunteers! Contact Sean & Amanda Sailor to get involved.

Interested in Serving?

We would love for all of our parents to be a part of our Kids Ministry. We believe it's an honor and responsibility to share the Good News about Jesus with the next generation (Psalm 78:1-8). We would love to partner with you in helping your child grow in the Lord.

"Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court."
Psalms 127:3-5
