Welcome to Northway Preschool
At Northway preschool our goal is to partner with families to give your child the infrastructure they need to start a healthy spiritual walk with the Lord. We give them the starting tools to know who God is and how that relates to their life. Our hope is that when our children leave preschool ministry to take their next steps in Northway Kids that they will know Who God is, what Jesus did for them, and that they were made unique and dearly loved by their creator and Savior.
Kim Michael, Director of Preschool Ministries
Our 9am preschool worship meets in age-divided classrooms. Leaders incorporate a lesson, a game, snack, memory verse practice, and other fun, hands-on activities. Teachers are trained parents, grandparents, and volunteers who have been carefully vetted and background checked.
During the 10:30am worship hour, each preschool class comes together for large group worship where they get to learn, dance, sing, and get silly with engaging videos, skits, puppets, and more. We look at the Bible story from the 9am hour in a different way and incorporate 20 minutes of arts and crafts, 20 minutes of play time often on the playground if weather permits, and 20 minutes of worship.
Northway Babies – The purpose of our baby ministry is to give your child exposure to God and church through age appropriate play, music, and books. We want you as a parent to know that you can have your time to worship and serve while your child is being cared for in a loving, safe environment.
Small Group (2k-4k) – The purpose of small groups is to give your child a foundation for their blossoming faith. Through Bible Stories, crafts, and interactive activities; our goal is to bring life to important Bible stories and spiritual truths. Our prayer is that the gospel will root in your child’s heart from an early age. Once they have learned these truths then they will be ready to apply them as their spiritual lives mature.
Large Group (2k-4k) – The purpose of large group is to help reinforce what your child has been learning in their small group classrooms. This is a fun time each Sunday where your child will be able to sing, dance, and be given a visual to go along with what they are learning. We also take this opportunity to introduce new concepts that may have not been covered in our lessons such as tithing and missions.
