Below are descriptions of our ongoing children’s programs. For timely information, see Children’s News.
Our nursery provides tender, loving care by mature adults for infants through age 3 during the Sunday School hour as well as the 10:15 a.m. Worship Service. Nursery care is also provided during Wednesday evening activities from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m..
We are continuing our walk through the entire Bible using “The Gospel Project” as our Bible study resource. It shows how Jesus fits into the entire Gospel Story, from Genesis to Revelation. More importantly, it illustrates where each of us fit into it, too! Each week our stories come to life as it presents the story of redemption that only comes through Jesus. We enjoy music, videos and activities together.

Northridge Friends Church offers a $100 scholarship toward each of our campers registrations. Register at http://www.efcmaym.org. Camp dates for the 2018 Calendar are June 2-6 for Kids Camp. (All grades are grade completed as of Spring ’16.)
At Northridge we invite kids from 3 yrs. – 6th Grade to come together to fellowship, learn, play for one week each summer. Invite your friends and to join in the fun. VBS this year will be held the week of July 17-20.
Northridge sponsors this Bible study club at McLean Elementary School in our neighborhood. This is a strong outreach to children, with many coming to know Jesus as a result of the loving teaching each Monday afternoon after school. You can volunteer on Monday afternoons or provide individually wrapped snacks by placing them in the lobby in the appropriate box. For more information contact Ruth Binford.
