Living God. Loving People. Changing Lives.

Children

Is there anything better than hearing a child talk about Jesus or recall a bible story that they love?  At Northwest, we count it our privilege to show children the truths of God and the blessing of knowing His Word. As early as 18 months, our kids are hearing the Word of God and how much He loves and cares for them.

Early Childhood Team: (led by Angela Wolak and Melissa Hooverman)
Nursery - Newborn - 18 months
Toddlers - 18 months - 2 year olds
Our newborns are loved and cared for while guardians are hearing the word of God.  Toddlers have a fun time playing while hearing a story from God's word.

Preschool Team: (led by Amy Gergely)
Ages 3 - 6
Our preschoolers are fully engaged during their Sunday morning activities with a Bible lesson, activities, singing and crafts.

Elementary Team: (led by Katherine Dove, Melissa Smith, and Bill Newlon )
Grades K - 5
The elementary kids join together at 10:00 AM for their own worship time.  This hour of worship begins with what we call "Connections".  The kids have 20 minutes to connect through a variety of activities like Foosball, Air Hockey, Legos, arts and crafts, an organized sport or just hanging out.  After Connections, they are led in kid style worship with high energy praise songs, and an interactive Bible learning time.   At 11:00, some families may choose to stay for Northwest's "Huddles".  Just as adults gather in small groups to discuss what they just heard during the service, kids break into age groups (K-1, 2-3, 4-5 grades) and learn how they can apply the Bible lesson they just heard into their life.

(Because your child's welfare is of upmost importance to us, our volunteers have been screened and are required to go through background checks.)
