Education

True North Education Ministry is committed to serving the parents and children at our church. Whether they’re in the nursery or in high school, our mission is to equip children to be disciples of Jesus who love and serve God, one another, and our community.

At True North, kids engage in Gospel-centered worship, Bible stories, crafts, games, and activities - all while guided by our caring group of volunteers.

OUR GOAL

As kids hear about who God is and what He has done for them, they are invited to believe in the good news, receive God’s love, and act in faith. Our goal is to partner with parents in discipling their children and to create a safe, fun, and engaging space for kids to hear the gospel of Jesus.


We believe that the nursery and toddler stage is an important time of growth and learning. In this room, our caring volunteers serve our little ones through playtime, prayer, and worship. Snacks and water are provided, but if your children has additional needs, we ask that every family supply their own items (ex: diapers, food, favorite toys, etc).

NURSERY/TODDLERS (0 - 2.5 YEARS)

We want to begin introducing first and second graders to God through stories of the Bible. At this stage, we teach children more about God’s good works through Jesus and provide a space where they can make safe, loving relationships.

LOWER GRADES (1ST - 2ND)

Middle school and high school is an important time for spiritual growth. At this stage, they are developing relationships with their families, friends, and God. We want to help our teens and pre-teens understand more difficult biblical concepts and what it means to have a personal relationship with the Lord.

MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL (6TH-12TH)

Each week, our Pre-K and Kindergarteners have a time of learning, activities, snacks, and playtime as an interactive way of understanding the Gospel message. Volunteers are trained to care for, engage with, and introduce kids to Jesus.

PRE-K/KINDERGARTEN (2.5 - 5 YEARS)

Upper elementary schoolers will go beyond Bible stories into actual biblical concepts and principles that shape their faith. Our teachers will help guide third, fourth, and fifth graders to apply the things they learn into their everyday lives.

WORSHIP

At both 9:30 AM and 11:30 AM gatherings, we encourage families with children (ages 6-18) to worship together in the main auditorium after check-in. Younger children in Nursery, Pre-K, and Kindergarten will be guided to their appropriate rooms. Our hope is to integrate students into the life of the church where they can worship with their parents and church community.

CLASSROOMS

After worship, kids will be dismissed with our True North volunteers to continue service in their classrooms with age-appropriate Gospel teaching, games, and activities. We begin first as a large group to hear God’s Word, and then split by grade for discussion.

COMMUNION

At True North, we believe that Jesus is always giving us an opportunity to walk with him and follow him. One way we teach kids to respond to Jesus is through Communion. The breaking of bread signifies Christ's broken body, and drinking from his cup signifies the blood he shed for our forgiveness. Every first Sunday of the month, kids are invited to join their parents for the Lord's Supper if they are baptized and/or confirmed.
