BLOOM is our preschool ministry at Northstar Church which includes nursery, toddlers and preschoolers. Our hope is that your child will BLOOM in their relationship with Jesus Christ and start to understand three basic truths: GOD MADE ME, GOD LOVES ME and JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER.
Seedlings (0-14 months old)
We have curriculum through song and repeated phrases for even our very youngest members to teach them that God loves them. Our nursery is staffed with adults who love to hold babies and our low ratio allows it. We want all parents to feel free to worship while we care for their kids in a safe place. We offer nursery at all worship services.
Sprouts (1 Year Olds) Buds (2 Year Olds) Blossoms (3-5 Year Olds)
Our Toddler and Preschool classes are full of fun! Currently, we combine our Buds and Sprouts classes to make one toddler class of 1 and 2 year olds. Our preschool class is for children 3-5 years old. Our teachers use fun and engaging activities to teach the three basic truths. Each Sunday our toddler and preschool classes hear a Bible story then play games and do crafts that reinforce what they have learned. We also have an amazing BLOOM worship team that visits classes allowing children to praise God through song and movement.
JUMPSTART is our ministry for elementary aged children. Our Jumpstart groups are divided by K-2nd grades and 3rd-5th grades. We want church to be a place where kids have fun and hear truth! We encourage relationships with friends, teachers and most importantly, Jesus! Each week children will hear a Bible story, and participate in worship, games, activities, and small group time. When kids leave Jumpstart there are 3 basic truths we want them to know: I CAN TRUST GOD NO MATTER WHAT, I SHOULD TREAT OTHERS THE WAY I WANT TO BE TREATED and I CAN MAKE THE WISE CHOICE.

What to Expect on Your First Visit
When you arrive on Sunday morning you will be greeted by a children’s ministry team member. We ask that you complete a family registration form and security stickers for each of your children. We will help you direct your children to their classrooms where they will be greeted by their teachers. You will use a security sticker to pick your child up at the end of the service. Our hope is that you feel welcome and at ease with leaving your children in our care with our amazing volunteers!
