On Sunday evenings in the Fall and Spring, children age 3 through Kindergarten are invited to participate in the preschool Atrium, and the 1st through 3rd graders are invited to participate in the elementary Atrium. The atrium is a time when children are invited to wonder at the mysteries of our faith and search for our purpose in God’s plan using the Montessori method of teaching. Through experiencing prayer, understanding the liturgy of the church, learning about the bible exploring biblical geography, and reading scripture. Atrium leaders follow the curriculum of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd as adapted in The Way of the Child, a Cooperative Baptist Fellowship supported curriculum produced by Companions in Christ, to create an environment that allows children to explore their faith history and to develop a relationship with God that will last a lifetime.
Girls in 4-6th grades are invited to participate in Girls of Grace. Girls of Grace is where girls explore their faith and some of the gender specific issues that face this age group.Girls of Grace is offered to specifically meet the needs of pre-teen girls and to have small-group time with same gender peers.

I would love to come support your children in their activities and acknowledge their accomplishments. I often learn of their accomplishments from them, but it would be so wonderful to have copies of game schedules,dates when they will be in plays or performances at school, dance recitals, and any other activities where an extra cheerleader in the crowd might be meaningful. Please feel free to email me information on any of these events, so that I might support your children in their activities.
As many of you will recall, one part of Northminster’s Fiftieth Anniversary celebration was the commissioning of a book, chronicling our church’s first fifty years.
The book, Different and Distinctive, But Nevertheless Baptist, is now published, and copies have arrived at Northminster. Copies are available in the church office during regular office hours.
Each Northminster household will receive one free copy, so please come by the church to receive yours.
