"Permit the children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." Luke 18:1
 

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

At North Hills, we understand that at a very early age, children need to be taught God's word and share an active place in the church. 
 
North Hills is a place for your child just as much as it is a place for you. Children are a vibrant part of the North Hills family. Their energy and playfulness pervade the group in ways that raise our spirits to the aspiration of being true children of God. Their innocence and dependence are reminders of the words of Jesus in Matthew 18: “that unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Their meekness prompts further the words of Jesus, “whoever humbles himself like this child will be greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
 
Our children are important to us. Their knowledge of God’s word and his saving grace are top priorities for the North Hills church. We provide Bible classes for all ages of our children ranging from our cradle roll class for infants up through classes for our teenagers.  There is a Children’s worship for those 2 1/2 years old through 2nd grade during the sermon portion of our worship service. This provides the children with the opportunity to have their own period of worship and instruction in an atmosphere just for them.
 
Our children are incorporated into the other areas of ministry as ways of instructing them in God’s service. Visiting nursing homes with their parents, sending notes to troops overseas, or delivering plates of food to elderly friends are ways that they are part of the ministry of North Hills.
 
There are occasional special parties, events, and trips just for the children. The children also have the opportunity to spend a week each summer at Raccoon Creek State Park attending Camp Concern where they enjoy nature, learn about God’s will for them, and establish friendships that last a lifetime.
