Connect & Grow

"A community of God’s people who, through the Holy Spirit, are committed to… Discipleship & Ministry."

Spiritual and educational growth is something we at Northwood take seriously and enjoy immensely.  We connect and grow with a great mix of Bible studies, homework tutoring, Youth Group, Sunday and mid-week adult classes, small groups and fun events for the entire family.

Our Church Nursery is staffed by loving church volunteers each Sunday morning during worship.  The nursery is located on the left down the Christian Ed. hall.  Please sign in your child and we’ll get your cell phone number, or come and get you if we need you during worship.

 

Age 4 to Grade 12 –
Children’s & Youth Church, Sunday mornings, begins each week after the children's message/Time for the Young at Heart.  We cannot have this activity yet, so see you as soon as our Covid-19 health crisis is over!

We love children!  Our Children’s & Youth Church, led by a caring and qualified staff, meet each Sunday morning during worship.  Families with children are welcome to attend worship and then, after the 'Time for the Young at Heart' children’s message with the Pastor or a volunteer, they are dismissed to Children’s &/or Youth Church (junior and senior high) during the school year.  There, children and youth learn their own age-appropriate Bible story and do crafts or games that relate to the story.  This is currently on a Covid break.

 

Grades 1-6 – Homework Club
Mondays & Wednesdays, 3-4:30 PM during the school year.

Is your child struggling at school?  Homework Club has become the highlight of the week for a number of neighborhood children.  Twice a week after school, 3-4:30 P.M., we gather in our fellowship hall for individual homework help, educational games and snacks.  Our caring staff includes church volunteers and ministry staff.  While most of the children are walked down from Linwood School, any elementary-age student is welcome to attend.  Registrakidwithlegos.jpegtion is required after a child visits once. We start each day by meeting at the Flag Pole immediately after school and walk/drive to the church.  Parents please pick up your child at 4:30 PM at the back parking lot door.
