Northside Kids is our K5 through 5th grade Ministry. And from personal experience, kids really do say the darnedest things! At the end of every gathering, we walk away laughing about something that was said. From "I picture Jesus to have the cutest hands," to "I carry my New Testament .... always." Our team has heard and love it all!
Do you enjoy teaching biblical truths, through Scripture, stories, crafts and games? Do you love the contagious energy of working with elementary aged students? Have you experienced the joy of seeing a child's face when the love of God makes sense to them for the first time? Are you interested in joining our Northside Kids Ministry Team?
You can volunteer in the following ways:
1. Leading or Assisting in a Sunday School Class -
a commitment of two Sundays a month during the 9:45am study.
Our Sunday School teacher's are provided with the curriculum ahead of their week, allowing enough time to prepare properly. Teaching a Sunday School class is a great opportunity to make a lesson more personal for the kids, since they are broken up into smaller groups.
2. Leading or Assisting in Children's Church -
a commitment of one Sunday a month during the 11am service.
Similar to our Sunday School teachers, our Children's Church team is provided with the lesson and materials needed to succeed ahead of time so that they may prepare properly. This is an opportunity to connect with all of the students from ages K5 to 5th grade. Children's Church is excused from the 11am service immediately following worship through music, and lasts during the remainder of the time.
During this time we introduce the children to biblical truths in an age-appropriate manner, encourage them to ask questions, participate in discussion, as well as make it fun through crafts and games.
3. Leading or Assisting in Northside Kids -
a commitment of leading one to two months per year.
Northside Kids is similar to Children's Church on Sunday Mornings. The Northside Kids will begin with joined worship through music with the Journey Youth Ministry (6-12th grades), then will be dismissed to be taught a lesson that is altered specifically for their age group. This lesson will be curriculum based, provided ahead of time, and you will be given with the entire month's plan at once in order to allow time for best preparation.
