Children's Ministry at Northfield Baptist Church
Our children's ministry provides opportunities for kids to learn about God through Sunday morning and Wednesday night activities, special events, summer programs, and children's choir. We offer safe and comfortable childcare for infants and toddlers during our Sunday and Wednesday services, so you can know that your child is in great hands while you worship God and learn from His Word.
During the Morning Worship Service, children in Kindergarten and younger start in their respective classrooms (Nursery; 2s & 3s; Pre-Kindergarten & Kindergarten). Children in Grades 1-3 start in the Auditorium with their parents and will be dismissed part way through to their Children’s Church time.
Sunday School is offered for all ages at 11:00 a.m. Sunday School is an important part of the children's discipleship because it focuses on long-term, comprehensive Bible Study from all parts of Scripture. The children will become familiar with all the major stories, characters, and events of the Bible with lessons that are fun and applicable.
Olympians and Gopher Buddies
Our children's club ministries meet on Wednesday at 7:00-8:20 p.m.--Olympians for elementary age children (grades 1-6), and Gopher Buddies for early learners (age 4-Kindergarten). These Word of Life clubs encourage the children in many areas of Christian growth like: daily devotions, Christian service, Bible study with the group, Christian reading, and church attendance. The meetings usually include: opening and closing, Bible Lesson, small group time, and game time. Club "members" are encouraged to work toward different achievement levels, but children can join in any time and still learn and have fun.
Safety and Accountability
We will provide a safe environment for children to enjoy. We want children to be safe and feel safe, and parents to rest assured that their child is well cared-for while they are with us. For this reason, we will obtain an application and background check on every volunteer.
After you apply, a ministry leader will contact you about the opportunities to serve.
