Nothing is more important than your children. They are important to God, to you, and to us. For that reason, we’d enjoy the privilege of partnering with you in your work of raising your children to know and love God. Please take a minute to learn about the ways we can help you do this at North Park Baptist Church.
Life Bible Study (Sunday School)
Sunday Mornings at 9:00 a.m.
Children grow and have fun in Life Bible Study at North Park. Small classes, caring teachers, and Bible-based curriculum assure that your children will have a rewarding and spiritually enriching experience in weekly Bible study. Starting when they are two years of age children have their own weekly Bible study classes at North Park. Age-graded classes extend all the way up through high school and into adult years, so that no matter a person’s age, he or she can participate in regular group Bible study at North Park.
Life Bible Study is the foundation of our ministry to children. We’d be glad to welcome your child or children into their Life Bible Study class this Sunday.
Preschool and Children’s Worship
Sunday Mornings at 10:30 a.m.
Our older preschoolers and children share the first part of worship with the adults and teenagers in our auditorium, then are dismissed for their special worship programs. They enjoy age-appropriate Bible study, singing, Bible memory work, handcrafts, and games. When adult and teen worship is over, their parents pick them up in their worship areas.
Elevate Children’s Ministry
Thursday Evenings from 6:00-7:00 p.m.
Elevate is a fun and faith-building time for children from kindergarten to 5th grade.
Elevate actively involves children in learning how to live out the principles of God’s Word in their day-to-day life. Bible stories, games, activities, songs, and projects keep children going from the first moment of Elevate to the conclusion 60 minutes later.
Our Elevate kids take what they’ve learned outside of class, as well. They have ministered in nursing homes, at the police and fire stations, in our worship services, and by putting together shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.
Vacation Bible School
Every summer children 5 years old – 5th grade get to spend five exciting evenings in Vacation Bible School at North Park. Open to all children of the community, Vacation Bible School features stories, music, recreation, crafts, snacks, and lots of fun helping children learn more about God, his creation, Jesus, and having a personal relationship with God. We’d enjoy having the opportunity to have your child or children in Vacation Bible School this year.
Outings and Special Events
Every year there are a number of special events for children and families at North Park. Here are some examples:
- Angel Christmas Breakfast: At Christmas our children and their friends enjoy a great breakfast, hear the first Christmas story, and make a gingerbread house to take home. We encourage them to bring a friend.
- Easter Egg Hunt: After worship on Easter Sunday all children and their friends gather on the back lawn of the church for a giant Easter Egg Hunt. Beside the eggs, the Easter Bunny usually makes an appearance providing some kid and family photo ops.
- Silverman’s Farm Outing: Our outing to Silverman’s Farm each fall is hugely popular. Families have a picnic lunch, then feed the animals at the animal farm. Some stay to pick apples afterward.
- Fall Family Outing: In October we have an outing to an area farm where we go through their Corn Maze, award prizes to the teams who get through the maze the fastest, and top off the afternoon with cider and donuts.
You can find photos of these and other activities in our photo gallery.
This is a great place for you and your children!
With everything offered for children, teenagers, and adults, North Park is a great place for you and your children. We hope that you’ll take part in every activity that you possibly can.
