North Side KidsChildren's Ministry
Welcome to NSK!
Our Children’s Ministry offers in-person service and online. You can find weekly lessons that are fun, engaging, and will support parents and families to reinforce that God loves and cares for our children even in times of uncertainty.
Just scroll down the page for pre-school, elementary, and pre-teen content.
We encourage you to share these with your children in addition to any bible study and family time you would normally have. Stay tuned for special event announcements for kids and parents.
For those of you who find yourselves at home for extended times with your children here’s a list of some things you may want to do at home with them. Hang in there 🙂

Preschoolers love trying to do things like grown-ups. They like to press buttons on computers and jump high to throw the basketball or stir the food to make something yummy to eat. Being able to say they can do things like their parents is a big deal! This month, we are teaching preschoolers something else they can do that’s a really big deal. They can love like Jesus! We want preschoolers to know that they can love like Jesus, and when they love like Jesus, it’s like tossing confetti everywhere! Serving others, showing kindness, helping and loving everyone—these are things that even our youngest children can do. And when they do, they love like Jesus.

GOD VIEW: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN FORGIVENESS AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY!
WORK IN PROGRESS: REDO, REWRITE, RESTORE!
This month, our Elementary & Preteens are learning about Forgiveness. Even Jesus chose to forgive those who were crucifying Him. Because God forgives us, we are to forgive others. Forgiveness is a process in which we commit to allowing the Lord to handle those who offend us. While apologies are courteous, with or without, we must release the debt to God by deciding that someone who has wronged us doesn’t have to pay. With God’s help, we can free ourselves from the weight of anger and bitterness. We can also set boundaries in order to feel safe and to heal. In some cases, the other person may have an opportunity to repent and ask God to forgive them as we ask God to help us navigate the compassionate road to forgiveness.
