Kids Ministry


Kids are a Treasure from God
We believe kids are a treasure, a gift from God. We want every kid to feel treasured by God and the people of NorthRidge. We read the Bible, memorize scripture, praise and worship God while fellowshipping with one another.

See below for our class and program schedule. To serve in Kids Ministry, or for more information about Kids Ministry at NorthRidge, contact our Kids Minister, Christina Van Vooren, 763-428-5115 x311.

Wednesday Nights – 2nd-5th Grade (Begins 9/19/18)

During KidsQuest, we seek the treasures of God’s kingdom, the real treasures God has written for us in His treasure map—the Bible.

KidsQuest is a fun time filled with upbeat kids worship music, active games, relevant Bible teaching, and relational small groups. Each Wednesday we will focus on a section of scripture. KidsQuest is a time for kids to invite their friends to meet Jesus.

Kids are a Treasure


Love God
In children’s ministry we study the Bible and memorize verses from the Bible in order to understand the character of God and the way he relates to people throughout history. Through this we begin to know God and learn to love him. We sing songs of praise to God and learn to worship him together. Kids are encouraged to attend worship with their parents as they are ready, to be baptized and participate in communion.

Love Each Other
NorthRidge Fellowship kids classes are designed to encourage each kid to connect with an adult leader and to develop lasting relationships with a small group of kids. The kids pray for each other and learn to know and care for each other as they grow together through the years.

Make a Difference
Within each Bible story there is a direct application to the kids lives. Kids are encouraged to apply biblical principles in the way they treat their families, their friends, and by living in obedience to Christ. We provide a weekly handout to help families apply Biblical principles throughout the week.

The kids have several opportunities throughout the year to Make a Difference including giving Christmas gifts to kids in need around the world, collecting school supplies and health and hygiene kits to send on our mission trips, and giving a regular weekly offering toward church ministries and missions. Also to attend summer VBS and other events and to participate in neighborhood parades inviting people in our community to church.
