Children & Youth

Through the Children's and Youth Ministry at Northside Drive, each child and youth is given a place to learn, play, and grow to be the people that God created them to be. From the earliest age, Church School classes provide a safe place for children while teaching them about God and God's love and care for everyone.

Believing that all human beings are spiritual in nature, we seek to cultivate that innate spirituality through Bible study, fellowship, and worship in ways that encourage and teach children to cherish these spiritual practices and to continue to grow in the knowledge and grace of God in Christ. Regular fellowship builds a strong community among our children, uniting them despite age ranges and different school districts.

We take seriously the responsibility of caring for your children, and our volunteers and childcare workers all undergo screening and compliance with our Childcare Protection Policy.

During church school and worship, nursery care is provided to care for children 3 and under. All nursery rooms are always staffed with two trained staff members, who have also passed background checks. The NDBC Nursery is located on the ground level of our building, and is directly on your right, as you enter the church through the porte cochère entrance.

Inclusive, inquiring, involved
