In need of some financial assistance to attend a trip or event? Have multiple kids in your heard and want to make sure they all can come? Worried that they might not be able come to all of their events? Those are all things your Northside church family does not want you to be concerned with. We want to make sure that any child/youth wanting to attend any trip or function has the opportunity to go. We can always work out payment plans, help with scholarships and much more. Please do not hesitate to ask. We love all of our children and youth and want all of them to enjoy every program and event that is offered in our church family.

Ways you can support our Sunday School Program?

  •  PRAY: Pray for our Sunday School Teachers and their families. Ask for God's protection for their health and family life, for His blessing on their weekly lessons of the Gospel as they teach our children and youth. Pray for our students that they are able to explore their curiosities, learn about their faith and grow into a deeper relationship with our church family and our Lord.
  •  

    MODEL: Teach our children and teens to honor and respect their Sunday School teachers and God's house. And teach what it means to be a Member of our Church Family. Show your desire to grow closer to God by attending a Bible Study, event or activity at church. Make family devotions and prayer a daily family activity.

  •  

    ACT: Get involved in Sunday School as a Teacher, Substitute or Assistant. Offer to chaperone events or lead activities for Sunday School Events like at our Halloween Event, Advent Workshop or Easter Workshop. Ask our Sunday School teachers if there is a classroom item you could provide.

  • INTRODUCE YOURSELF: Get to know our Sunday School Teachers and our students by name, learn about who they are and give them the opportunity to get to know you. Say “Hey” to them in the hallways, at coffee hour, offer to help them sing out of a hymnal during worship, and/or ask if their families would like to sit with you for Worship. 

 

Acolytes

We need two acolytes every Sunday! Please sign up on the Sunday School Bulletin Board to participate in our morning services.

If your child has never been an acolyte before, Evy is more than happy to meet with you and your child to practice! Each autumn season, an Acolyte Class will be held where children learn how and why we acolyte in our congregation as well as receive a certificate.
