The purpose of the Northminster Childrens Ministry is to provide education, music and fun for Infants to 5th graders. Our regular programs are:
Established in 1984, this is an education ministry for preschool-aged children. Northminster Day School is dedicated to providing children of our congregation and community with a Christian-based education through a variety of learning experiences that nurture the emotional, physical and spiritual development of a child. Classes range from twelve (12) months to five (5) years old.
Their phone number is 770-998-4992. Visit the website for the preschool at www.northminsterdayschool.org
Northminster provides nursery services for infants up to 1st graders, so that you can participate in the services and activities of the church. Nurseries are available for all regular service times and other events as scheduled.
Way Cool Sunday School
For 3-year-olds through 5th graders, Way Cool meets every Sunday at 10:00 am.
In the preschool class and depending on the lesson each week, the 3- and 4-year-old children may use all 5 senses, movement, singing, and different art mediums to learn about God and God's love. We use "Growing in Grace and Gratitude" curriculum.
For the elementary-aged children, Northminster uses a class rotational model for teaching Sunday School. The session's Biblical story or theme is taught multiple ways over multiple weeks. Our curriculum uses music, art, science, movement, and cooking to explore God's word! The children are divided into two groups: Kindergartners through 2nd Graders and 3rd through 5th Graders.
Worship & Wonder
This is a ministry for children 3 years of age through 1st grade. During the 11:15 am worship service, children are invited to attend Worship & Wonder to hear a Bible story, do a craft, and grow in faith in a more child-friendly way! If you are interested in volunteering, please sign-up here! Contact Jennifer Filpi ( ) with questions!
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Every summer for one week, kids 3 years old (who are potty trained) through 5th grade get to have fun, learn bible stories and discover God in very creative and hands on ways.
Chapel Choir (3rd-5th Graders)
The Chapel Choir meets with Noelle Hooge, Director, in the choir room on Sunday nights from 5:00-6:00 pm. They become Worship Leaders instead of Worship Watchers, and it gives them a sense of usefulness to the whole Church. Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade children study vocal techniques, music reading, and develop motor skills through established methods such as Orff and Kodaly.
