We believe that SMALL GROUPS are the best place for kids to be known and grow in their faith.

We are a PLACE TO BELONG: If you want to influence what kids believe about God, themselves, and the rest of the world, then give them somewhere to belong!

We are a SAFE PLACE for kids to be real, ask questions, and get to know other kids and adults who are following Jesus.

Sunday Experience

On Sundays at Northshore Kids, you will learn about Jesus and get to know a group of kids who will grow in community all year! In this group, with the help of a Life Group Leader and the Bible, kids will walk through the church's mission by PASSIONATELY PURSUING JESUS, RADICALLY LOVING ONE ANOTHER, COMPASSIONATELY SERVING YOUR NEIGHBORS and RELATIONALLY DISCIPLING ALL PEOPLE! Our Northshore Kids Ministry Team believes it is never too early to start!

New Child Registration/Update


Child Dedication is a time for parents and the church family to commit themselves to raising a child in ways that nurture their relationship with Jesus. If you are interested in having your child dedicated, please fill out this form and we will start the process with your family.



The next step, after your child has invited Jesus to be their Lord and Savior, is BAPTISM! Below you will find a great resource for you and your child to walk through to better understand baptism and to determine if you think your child is ready for this step in their walk with Jesus.

My husband and I have 2 adult daughters, Emma and Isabella. Homeschooling them were some of the best years of our lives. I have been in Children’s Ministry since 2006, sharing God’s word with the children. I love every minute of it. I love taking walks with my family and my 2 dogs, browsing antique shops, and curling up by the fireplace with a good book and a delicious cup of tea.

When I’m not teaching kids, playing with kids, all things kids, I love to read, paint, and camp. I have an unusual knowledge of most songs and love to play Name That Tune! My husband Michael and I have been married since 2000. We have two adult daughters, Abigail and Victoria. Along with our daughters we live with two sassy cats way out in Granite Falls. I love gardening and cooking for others. Biscuits and gravy are my specialty!

Hi! I’m Taylor, and I’m the 3rd-5th grade coordinator. My two favorite things are Jesus and my wife, but I also love sharing Jesus with kids. I may look like a goofball, but deep down I am.
