What To Expect

New To North Park?

Our Children's Ministry wing is located on the second floor, down the hallway to your left. Some of our classrooms are on the third floor as well. The rooms are clearly marked, but if you have any questions, contact our Children's Ministry Director, Kelly Laird.

Secure Check-In

Upon arriving at NPC, please stop by one of our Check-In Stations. They're located on the 1st and 2nd floors. Here you will sign in your child(dren) for any of our programs that day. Parents will be given a parent safety tag and a child identification tag. The ID tag gets placed on the child and the parents present the safety tag when returning to pick up the child.

Staff and Volunteers

Anyone over 18-years-old that is working with children at North Park is required to submit up-to-date Child Abuse and Criminal History clearances. Volunteers are asked to fill out an application each year. Paid nursery workers are interviewed and submit 2-3 references that are checked before hiring. Our nursery workers are currently certified in CPR, First Aid, babysitting, and AED training.

If you'd like to volunteer with our kids - fill out an application.

Child Safety Policies & Procedures

We have a Child Safety Policy that is reviewed and updated regularly.

Our Programs

Nursery

Care for our littlest ones (birth to 36-months) is offered during worship services, Sunday School, and other church events. We hire paid workers who have their current clearances as well as babysitting, CPR, First Aid/AED, and other lifesaving certifications. Nursery workers will welcome families and do their best to make a child's time with them pleasant and comfortable as well as fun. Be sure to let us know of any allergies or special accommodations needed for your child. If you have any questions or concerns, speak with our Children's Director.

3-Year-Old Program

Three-year-olds are cared for all Sunday morning by our loving volunteers and workers. A blend of playtime, storytime, Bible reading, prayer, and snack. This helps kids this age transition from the nursery to our preschool level program.

Kids' Worship

Sundays (September - May) | During Worship Service | 3-year-olds through 2nd grade

  • Children remain in the worship service until dismissal.
  • At KW, children are led in a small-group time of prayer, engaging Bible lessons from Explore the Bible Kids (Lifeway), mission, and Biblical application to their daily lives.

Sunday School

Sundays (starting September 12) | 9:00-10:00 a.m.

Classes are offered during the school year (September-May) for 3-year-olds - 5th grade. Our experienced, kind, and compassionate teachers use the Dwell Curriculum from Faith Alive Christian Resources. Children who attend Sunday School go through the entire Bible several times throughout their time with us.

Trekkers

Second Sunday of each month | 4:30-6:00 p.m.

Dates: September 12, October 10, November 14, December 12, January 9, February 13, March 13, April 10, and May 15.

Trekkers is a youth group-type program for 3rd-5th graders that runs from Fall-Spring. Kid's get games, prizes, Bible lessons, and applications in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Friends are welcome.
