Children

We welcome children of all ages to Northridge, with age-appropriate educational and fellowship opportunities.

For our youngest, we have a nursery staffed by loving, trained childcare professionals. They work hard to make sure church is a warm, welcoming place for infants and toddlers.

As our children grow, so do their opportunities to participate in the life of the church. Our Director of Children and Family Ministries coordinates our Sunday School program, as well as programming throughout the year that provides children of all ages with opportunities to learn, engage and serve. Children have opportunities to participate in events ranging from Mission Madness service projects to church-wide gatherings like Northridge Fall Fest to annual events like our Family Mission Trip, KidQuake kids’ retreat and Vacation Bible School.

Our 4th, 5th and 6th graders are welcomed into a 456’er fellowship group for monthly gatherings and service, and our 7th-12th graders can participate in our Youth Group, with weekly fellowship during the school year and a Mission Trip each summer. All families are welcome on our annual Family Mission Trip, which provides mission opportunities appropriate for all ages.

We offer non Sunday morning options for faith formation.

First Wednesday:

“First Wednesday” welcomes everyone to gather for a simple meal, discussion and activities designed to encourage community and spiritual growth for children, adults and teens.   Location:  Quillin Hall, the first Wednesday of most months from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.

L.I.F.T.

Northridge is looking forward to our new L.I.F.T. ministry on selected Sunday afternoons this fall and next spring.  L.I.F.T. (Living in Faith Together) builds relationships through cross generational Christian formation.   Everyone gathers together around tables to share food, fellowship and learning.   Please refer to the calendar for exact dates and come join us!

We also offer the Northridge Child Development Center, serving students age 2 years on Monday and Wednesday, and students age 3-5 years on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30-2:25.
