A place for kids to grow spiritually

Northstar Kids is a place where kids, big and small, learn that Jesus is on a quest for them and how they can be on a quest for Jesus. It is designed for children 3 months through 4th grade during celebrations. Our goal is to help build a spiritual foundation for children: a foundation of trust, self-concept and a growing understand of God. As your child grows with us, we will be sharing basics of a walk with God including experiencing worship, discipleship, and community. Our approach is rooted in Northstar's vision of Go. Love. Live.

our approach

Northstar Kids is founded on Northstar's vision of Go. Love. Live.

go to the missing

When we welcome a kid, we welcome Jesus.

Matthew 25:40 Then the King will say, “I’m telling the
solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to
someone overlooked or ignored. 

love the marginalized

We value connection over correction. 

Proverbs 22:60 Train up a child in the way he should
go, and even when he is old he will not depart from it.

live as god's kids

The reason we do what we do is because of one thing. Every kid is made in the image of God. Every kid has the divine capacity to love, relate and imagine because they are created in God's image. 

Genesis 1:27 So God created human beings (you, me, a preschooler, a baby, an elementary kid) making them to be like himself.
