I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
3 John 1:4
Our goal is to reach, restore and release every individual to expand God’s kingdom, this includes our Kids! We want our kids to not just know about God, but be actively following Him.
We have classroom for ages 3 all the way up to grade 7 our newly renovated basement, as well as a Nursery for babies and toddlers under 3 right next to the sanctuary.
Where do I drop my child off?
Nursery: (Age 0-2) Can be signed in and dropped off at our Nursery, just behind reception in the lobby.
Lil Kids: (Age 3-Kindergarten) and Kids Church: (Grade 1-4) Can be signed in downstairs and dropped off at their respective classrooms.
Rock: (Grade 5-7) Can be signed in either upstairs or downstairs, but aren’t dismissed to their classroom downstairs until after worship.
Do I need to bring anything?
No, you don’t have to bring anything. You can always send your child with a water bottle and their Bible, but if they forget their Bible or don’t have one, we have extras they can use. We try and encourage kids to leave their toys at home, so they aren’t distracted during the lesson, and we have lots of fun activities outside of the lesson.
How do I get involved in the KidsZone as a volunteer?
Do I need previous experience to volunteer in the KidsZone?
You don’t need previous experience to volunteer in the KidsZone, our classrooms are a great place to learn. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Can my child come if they are sick?
No, we are following BC health recommendations and encouraging adults and children to stay home if they are sick.
Do you offer child dedication?
Yes, we do. We don’t have designated weeks for baby dedications we schedule them at the parent’s request. If you would like to dedicate your child during a service at Northside please email Rose at: email@example.com.
What curriculum do you use?
We use GO! curriculum for Pre-School and Elementary classes, an interactive curriculum, that utilizes multiple different learning styles. Our Grade 5-7 class is using Grow Curriculum, which functions more like a Bible study with lots of reading of scripture and group discussion. If you’d like access to the curriculum, email Megan.
Get Connected as a Parent!
We believe parents have the main role in supporting a child’s spiritual development. We encourage parents to get involved in volunteering in the KidsZone as a way to get connected to other parents who are also learning how to teach their kids about God. And if your child is grade 4 or older, there are opportunities for them to volunteer along side you and learn how to serve and minister others.
Is a group open for any age Mom, but specifically makes room for Moms with toddlers and babies. We understand it’s a challenging season for Moms to connect to small groups, while their kids are at this stage because they need a lot of care and supervision. Living WELL meets every Friday from 10-11am and provides child care for your little ones, so you can connect to other Moms and to God, as you go through a Bible Study together. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or join the Facebook Group.
This is an age group that has a lot of questions and Rock makes room for those questions, as well as connection, community and practical activations, so the kids don’t just learn about God, but have a chance to put what they’re learning into practice.
