Children's Pastor

At Northgate, we are intentional about having our kids (infant through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.


It is important to us to have an educational curriculum that includes a variety of avenues like music, games, and crafts to make Scripture come alive to their young hearts!

Your First Visit

Now if you’re looking for the logistics here they are! After you check your kids in and receive a corresponding tag, each child will go to their age-appropriate class at the designated times!  What does “designated times mean” you may ask, well it simply means that during our 9:00AM and 11:05AM services the 4yrs-5th Grade kids will stay with their parents through the Music Worship time then be dismissed to go upstairs. If the Nursery is available then they can go directly in at the beginning of the services, and the same goes for the 10:00AM Sunday School Hour.  Everyone goes to their classes at the beginning of the Sunday School hour!

Right now Northgate is offering TreeFort Kids Children’s Church at the 9:00AM service for 4yrs-5th Grade combined.  No Little Lambs Nursery will be offered until the need is established.At the 10:00AM Sunday School hour all the Children’s Ministries are available! For those Infant-3yrs Old they will go to our Little Lambs Nursery on our first floor. If they are 4yrs Old-5th Grade they will go upstairs for our TreeFort Kids & Bridge Kids Ministries!  


Once upstairs they will split off into their age-appropriate Sunday School Classes! For those 4yrs Old-Kinder they will go to the Little Seeds Class, 1st -3rd Grades will go to The Acorns Class, and 4th-5th Grades will go to The Bridge Kids Class.  Then at our 11:05AM service we will offer the Little Lambs Nursery (infant-3yrs), Little Seeds Children’s Church (4yrs-Kinder), and Treefort Kids Children’s Church (1st-3rd; currently includes Bridge Kids 4th-5th).  

In order for a Child to be released to the parents or guardians the tag first given when first checked in must be shown that verifies that the person is indeed the one who brought them!  


Now we know that’s a lot, but at least you have a heads up of what it might look like for your family!
