North Point Kids
North Point Kids is based on Psalm 139:14 “I will praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made”. We are all created by God and created exactly how He wanted us to be. We strive to instill into each child’s heart that they are a child of God that is loved more than anyone and in ways we can never imagine. His plan for us is perfect. Children are a high priority to Jesus and they are here at North Point too!
North Point Church Children’s Ministry serves children from birth through 5th grade and is offered at both 9 AM and 11 AM Sunday services.
We have been extremely blessed by those who have chosen to worship with us each week. We continue to evaluate and monitor our growth and the effectiveness of our programs to ensure that your child will be ministered to in an effective way.
Nursery: Infant & toddler
Nursery is for children from birth to the age of three. Please label your diaper bag and any other personal items brought to the nursery. We offer two age appropriate nursery areas.
Toddlers have a worship time during their playtime in the nursery. They participate in a short Bible story, related activity, game, or craft and singing. Even the littlest ones can learn that “Jesus Loves Me!”

The Gospel Project – Preschool (age 3) through 5th grade
Our preschool through 5th graders use the curriculum The Gospel Project. This program is different from traditional curriculums as this is a chronological walk through the Bible on a three-year schedule. Bible memory, and key points are emphasized weekly.
Kindergarten – 5th grade children are dismissed following the music portion of the service. We start out together for a large group teaching and then split into age designated small groups.
Preschool age children have the option to go directly to their classroom after check in or wait until the elementary age children are dismissed. The teachers have organized activities and games based on the bible lesson ready to keep the early arrivers busy until all the children are present. . The Bible lesson for preschool will not begin until all the children are in the room.
To protect the health of all children, families, and leaders, we do require that you keep your child out of the nursery or other children’s classrooms if they are showing any of the following symptoms. If any symptoms arise during the service, you will be immediately notified. We will discuss the nature of the symptoms and removal from the room may be necessary. We appreciate your cooperation.
Colored discharge from nose or eyes
Fever higher than 100 degrees within 24 hours
Has vomited or had diarrhea within 24 hours
Extremely tired or irritable
Any contagious disease (ex: strep throat, chicken pox, head lice). If your child contracts a contagious disease, please notify Amy VanPutten so families can be notified of possible exposure. Some symptoms are unnoticed yet contagious before you even know your child has it. Your name will be kept confidential.
Be sure to let us know of any food or other allergies.
We offer electronic check in for our children’s ministry. The first time you attend, be sure to register at our “new family check in” station. After your initial visit, you will be able to use the self-check in stations using the phone number provided on your family information sheet. Registration team members are ready to assist you with any questions or problems.
If we should need to reach you, the parent, during the service, the number/letter code printed on your pick up label will appear in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Please respond in a timely manner. This pick up tag is also required when you pick up your children.
If I can help you or answer any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
