WELCOME TO CHILDREN'S MINISTRIES

"At Northwest Kids, we believe that every kid matters. From nurturing babies in our nursery to helping sixth graders discover who they are, we are passionate about leading kids to know God at every age and grade.

My name is Dominique Lawley, and I am the Children's Ministry Director here at Northwest Church. I have always had a passion for hanging out with kids, while showing them God's love. I love engaging with kids to create meaningful relationships, while seeing them grow in their relationship with Christ. We believe that parents are a big part of God's plan for every kid and our goal is to partner with our parents to lead their kids into a growing relationship with Jesus. Our number one priority for this ministry is to point kids to Jesus and we accomplish this through three things; being safe, welcoming and having fun. We hope that you find Northwest Kids Park to be a safe place where your kids can have tons of fun, while learning how to follow Jesus."

NORTHWEST KIDS

Children from birth through 6th grade can play, sing, and connect with other kids their own age, and learn about Jesus. It’s a high-energy place run by a fantastic staff and trained volunteers with programs on Sundays and Wednesday evenings.

As a parent, you’ll want to know how we keep your kids safe. Every volunteer at Northwest Church is finger printed and background checked before they become a part of our ministry. Kids are checked in and out of their classrooms by parents and pagers are available in the nursery in case your baby requires assistance during the service.

We encourage you to bring your kids to their classroom on Sunday mornings. Even if they are a little hesitant ask them to check it out. Big church isn’t designed for little ones and they will have way more fun with kids their own age.

SPECIAL NEEDS

We believe that church should be a place where every child feels welcomed, loved, and secure.

Our Special Needs program is designed for children ages 4 through 18 and meets every Sunday at 9:30 and 11 a.m. in room 108. Your child will experience a unique and loving environment created for children with special needs. This includes: a time of worship, prayer, lesson, craft time and free time. Qualified volunteers will care for your son or daughter while you enjoy a weekend service. If you would like more information, please contact:

SUNDAY MORNINGS | 8:00 AM | 9:30 AM | 11:00 AM

Your child will be welcomed into a fun and friendly environment where they can play and learn with other kids their age.  No matter how old your kids are, they will play games, sing songs, do activities, and be taught lessons from the Bible in age-appropriate ways.  We make sure that every Sunday is fun because kids learn and connect with others when they are having fun!

We also use Orange curriculum for both our pre-K and elementary classes.  Our goal is to partner with parents to lead kids into a growing relationship with Jesus.
