Northview Kids This Coming Weekend:
Hey parents! The sermon topic for this weekend has been changed so Northview Kids is NOT RUNNING (August 23 & 24). Lil Sprouts Nursery is still available for all services.
Northview Kids staff are working hard to prepare for a fun filled fall with lots of new and exciting things in store for your kids. We’ll be back in session on September 6 & 7.
What is KidCheck?
KidCheck is our way of ensuring your child’s safety. You are able to create a secure account where you can keep your family’s information current, and all updates can be done from your home computer. In addition, you are able to create a list of authorized or non-authorized guardians, provide pertinent medical information for your children, update contact information, and upload photos.
Creating a Free Account
If you are a regular Northview attender and have yet to make an online account, or if this is your first time visiting Northview, please visit go.kidcheck.com to create a free and secure KidCheck parent account. Read below to discover more about what KidCheck is, what are the benefits of creating a KidCheck account, and how you can Check-in a Friend.
Follow These Steps:
1. Go to go.kidcheck.com and see the option “I am a parent and want to create a free account”, click the “Register Now” link
2. Enter your contact information and create a username and password.
3. Enter Northview Community Church when it asks for your organization.
5. Set up your account by entering your mailing address, timezone, phone options and birthday. The ‘My Account” section is where you keep your personal profile information, child information, and your guardian list.
6. Make sure you add a picture. (This is very important, for security reasons)
7. Click Save.
8. Use the tabs to fill in your kids and spouse/guardian information and click save changes.
For security reasons we do not link parent accounts together. Each parent is free to create their own account, but if you want your spouse to be able to check your kids out, they will need to be listed as a guardian.
Now you are registered and you can change your information anytime, by logging in with your username and password.
For more information and questions about KidCheck please contact Adriana Bryce.
Registering your child’s friend?
If your child is bringing a friend to our Saturday evening or Sunday morning programs, we ask that their parent create a KidCheck account and enter you as a guardian. At Sunday morning check-in, our volunteers will be able to find that child under “other children you are listed as a guardian.” Your efforts here are very much appreciated, as it will eliminate any wait that you would have incurred at check-in.
For more information and questions about KidCheck please contact Adriana Bryce.

Noah’s Park – Pre School
A place where children Ages 2-Age 4 learn foundations of faith through Bible stories, prayer, singing, scripture memory, and activities.
The Preschool is located in the East Wing on the main floor. Each week your child will be welcomed by a caring and compassionate teachers and helpers. Your child will participate in singing, hear the Bible story be creatively taught, and be visited by Noah’s Park special puppet, Henrietta the Hen. Then it’s back to the classroom for prayer groups, Bible verse memorization, activity time, and craft. The activities relate directly to the Bible story and allow the teacher to re-tell and reinforce the Bible lesson. Prayer groups will allow your child to be personally prayed for each and every week they come.
At Northview Church, kids are important. We are committed to meeting their needs for love, security, understanding and acceptance in a world that is unstable, competitive and sometimes violent. Our programs are kid-oriented, our volunteers are carefully chosen and our curriculum is Biblically sound. It is a privilege to care for your children here. Together as a team, we are growing tomorrow’s leaders. Let’s give them the best. Let’s give them Jesus! After all, they are HIS kids!
Preschool children may check-in at one of KidCheck check-in stations located on the east side of the church, in the new building. If you are new to Northview, you may go to go.kidcheck.com and go to “I am a parent wanting to create a new account” to register your children ahead of time, and quickly check-in your children just prior to the service you are attending at one of our check-in stations.
As security is important in the Preschool Department, a security clerk is present to sign the children into their classrooms and see that they leave safely. Each child will receive a security tag and a call number system is also in place.

Grade School, Primary & Junior
Here we seek to sow seeds of faith in our children in Grade 1 – Grade 5 by teaching God’s Word, modeling godly character and displaying Christ’s Love
Our programs are kid-oriented, our volunteers are carefully chosen and our curriculum is Biblically sound. It is a privilege to care for your children here. Together as a team, we are growing tomorrow’s leaders. Let’s give them the best. Let’s give them Jesus! After all, they are HIS kids!
Grade school children register for class as early as 20 minutes before service. They then join their friends and Coaches in Town Square, located in the basement of new building, for a time of worship at the start of each service. Children then move into 3 separate teaching rooms for age appropriate Bible lessons. Upstairs, each age group meets in their own classroom for a time of activities, Bible study and prayer. Our children are taught the Word of God using Discipleland curriculum.
Each child needs to have a Bible. We use the NlrV Bible as it is very kid-friendly. This Bible is available for purchase at the Children’s Ministry Office for $25.

Imagine – Special Needs
Our desire is to provide children of all ages with an opportunity to discover Jesus in a safe, caring and loving environment while allowing parents the ability to attend church together. But we understand that leaving your child, teen or young adult in a new environment can be overwhelming for them and for you! With that in mind, our trained “care buddies” lovingly support your kids within the most inclusive environment possible.
What are our support options?
Saturday Nights // 5:15pm // Imagine Center (Children) // Rm 201 (Youth/YA)
For children who function best in a specialized setting, we provide a supportive group program with developmentally appropriate Bible stories, singing, activities and focused play.
For children who function best in an integrated setting, we have care buddies available to provide 1 to 1 support, enabling your child to participate in all levels of typical children’s programming (pre-school; grade school).
For those families with teens or young adults, we provide a supportive program with developmentally appropriate Bible stories, singing, games and activities. This group meets in a large classroom conducive to supporting individuals with various needs.
Sunday Mornings // 9am and 11:15am
While there is no current Sunday group programming, customized 1 to 1 support is provided for individuals and families who choose to attend church at 9 or 11:15am.
