Children

Please join us on our campus this weekend! Registration is required. 

Plan, pray, and prepare your family before attending the worship service!

What a joy it is to be returning to in-person services!  As we do so, we want to provide some information to families with younger children to help prepare them for some of the guidelines that are currently in place.

    • There will be no nursery or children’s programs available. Your children will join you in the service. We will provide activity pages and crayons/pencils to help keep your child engaged.
    • Please do not bring your child if they are sick, have been in contact with someone who is sick, or are considered high risk.
    • Please have your child use the restroom before coming to the worship service to limit restroom use at NCC. Restrooms in the Worship Center and the CMC will be available if the need arises.
    • Please keep your child with you and under your supervision at all times before, during, and after the worship service. If you need to leave the service, please take your child outside the building (not in the lobby or hallways).
    • The playground and children's classrooms will not be available for use.
    • Thank you for your patience and consideration of others as we begin to re-gather on campus.

Sunday Morning Notes for Kids


Day Camp, August 3 - 7, 202O

If you sent in photos, I apologize that they were not received. Would you please resend them?

I am so sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. Thank you for understanding!

REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Registration is still open! Our FREE, virtual Day Camp is our gift to you this year. The theme is “Mystery Island – Tracking Down the One True God” and it is geared toward children four-years-old through 5th grade - but fun for the whole family!

Although sad we cannot be together on campus this summer, we look forward to providing a virtual program that has all the elements of fun you would typically get at our live events. Worship, drama, lessons, PUPPETS, and more! Since our Day Camp is pre-recorded the videos will remain available for some time, so even if you register after the August 3 start date, you will be able to participate.

This year, we will be learning about some of  God’s amazing attributes and how that applies to our lives. We hope this virtual Day Camp is a blessing to you and helps your child(ren) track down and treasure the one true God! Questions? See our Virtual Day Camp FAQs.

Please register all children entering 5th grade and younger, who will participate.

VIRTUAL DAY CAMP FAQ's

Who can participate in the virtual Day Camp?
While Day Camp is geared towards children four years old through 5th grade, the whole family can participate! We do ask that you register each child who is entering 5th grade and younger. Remember, it is FREE! 

How will I access the Day Camp program?
If you registered prior to August 1, the instructions and link were emailed to you. If you registered August 1 or Later, you will receive instructions and the link to the pre-recorded videos in your registration confirmation message. If you did not receive the link and instructions, email Kelly at

How long is Day Camp each day?
The main video, which is our chapel time, will be 45 – 50 minutes. We will also have three supplemental videos with additional activities for your children. These will be 5 – 10 minutes each.

Do I have to participate in Day Camp at a certain time each day?
No! The blessing of having a pre-recorded, virtual Day Camp is that you may view the content at your convenience. By 8:00 AM (PST) each morning, beginning August 3, a new video will be released.  You can watch it at any time after it is posted and as often as you’d like. After August 7, all five days will remain available indefinitely. 

Can I share the link with my family and friends?
If you would like to invite others to join, please have them register at NorthCreekKids.org. This will allow us to send them the Day Camp information, the link to the content, and a follow up note. 

Can I register after Day Camp has already started?
Yes! You can register at any time through the month of August and have access to the pre-recorded programs. 

Are there crafts I can do with my child(ren) that correspond with each day’s theme?
Yes, but due to health concerns, we thought it best not to provide materials for crafts. However, we will email craft, snack, and recreation ideas, along with a simple supply list and instructions ahead of time. Brief instruction videos will be included with each day’s program to walk your child(ren) through these activities. 

Can I volunteer to help at Day Camp this year?
Since we are preparing a virtual program, there are very few volunteers needed. However, we would love you to partner with us in prayer! Would you commit to praying for the children participating in Day Camp? Please pray that every part of this virtual program will bring God glory as we reach out to children and their families with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you! 

I have more questions. Who can I contact?
You can email the planning team at , or call the church office at 925.210.9036 and ask for Children’s Ministries.


 In addition to Sunday classes, Children's Ministries holds classes, clubs, and other programs to help build a foundation of faith and Scripture knowledge in our children. Awana, a high-energy, fun-filled children's program emphasizing Bible memorization and application, meets on Fridays. C.A.R.S. (Children's Adventures Reading Scripture) meets Wednesday evenings (conveniently at the same time as many on-campus adult classes). Over the summer, kids enjoy Sports Camp and the annual favorite, Day Camp. The goal of all of these programs is to work together with parents to teach children the Word of God and encourage them in building their faith.


Sunday Mornings

Children are welcome to join their parents in worship during either service. We also provide children's programs at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM for children infants through 5th grade.

If you would like your child to participate in any of our Sunday children's programs, bring them to one of the check-in kiosks in the Courtyard or in the Nursery, before the service. A volunteer will help you to check-in and show you where your child's class is located.

9:00 AM – Truth:78

This doctrinally-based curriculum guides the next generations to know, honor, and treasure God—to set their hope in Christ alone and to live as faithful disciples for the glory of God. This curriculum is used in our two-year-old through fifth grade classes. Each age group meets in its own classroom.

11:00 AM – Generations of Grace

Generations of Grace is a three-year curriculum focusing on the narrative portions of the Bible to show God’s glory from one generation to another. This unified curriculum, where each class learns from the same passage of Scripture each week, is used in our three-year-old through fifth grade classes. This allows parents to interact with all of their preschool and elementary aged children on the same truths. Some age groups meet separately, some are combined.


Wednesday Nights (September - May)

C.A.R.S. (Children's Adventure Reading Scripture) takes place during the school year on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM. It is for infants through 5th grade.


Awana Clubs (September - May)

Awana meets on Friday evenings from 6:45 PM - 8:30 PM during the school year. Cubbies (3s-4s), Sparks (Grades K-2), Truth and Training (Grades 3-6), Trek (Grades 7-8), and Journey (Grades 9-12) spend the evening memorizing Scripture, learning from the Bible, and enjoying games and activities together. 


Family Dedication (May and November)

Family Dedication is a special opportunity for parents to make a prayerful and public declaration of their intent to train their child(ren) to respect and honor God and teach them about Jesus.  It’s also a time for the church body to affirm their intent to encourage and support these families.
Email  for more information.
