At Northfield, we believe the greatest spiritual influence in the lives of your kids is you, the parents. We like to say that what happens at home is more important than what happens even here at church. Deuteronomy 6 calls us as parents to love God first with all that we are, and then to impress God’s commands onto the hearts of our kids.
We partner with families to train up children to trust, love, and serve God. We provide safe, secure and enjoyable experiences whereby each child can begin to discover their personal relationship WITH Christ and their unique purpose IN Christ. As the anchor of a child’s spiritual formation, we foster family relationships as well as consistent small groups. We continually re-examine, re-imagine and re-create the best method of communicating the truth of God’s word in age-appropriate and culturally relevant ways. We do this so that kids will be able to understand and apply truth easily within the context of their own lives. NOTHING that we do will be outside the truth of the love and life of Jesus Christ, for this IS a broken world and we are a part of a larger story in which we are responsible for “God’s kingdom” on earth as it is in heaven.
