During Sunday Morning worship service we have a Bible Hour program for kids ages birth-8. Newborns to 2 years old meet in the nursery to play, eat snacks, and sing songs. The 3-4 year olds meet in classroom #1 and the 5-8 year olds meet in classroom #2. The children sing songs, make crafts, have a snack and play together.
Northgate Sprouts: Moms and their young children meet up every Friday morning during the summer from 9:30-11:30 so the kids can play together while the moms can chat (as much as the kids will allow).
We are in the process of building our kid’s Bible class program, so if you are looking for a place where you can get plugged in quickly and make an immediate impact, we could certainly use you!
We do not have a teen class on Sunday mornings yet. We are working toward getting a youth program implemented, so if you are looking for a place where you can get plugged in quickly and make an immediate impact, we could certainly use you!
The young adults get together once a month at someone’s house for dinner. We eat, talk, and have a good time together. Check out the calendar to see when our next dinner is, and if you’d like to join us, give the Church a call (602-677-3550) and we’ll let you know where and when we’re meeting.
Young at Heart
Young At Heart meets every Tuesday at Northgate Church of Christ at 10:00am. Young at Heart was organized to provide fellowship and opportunities for outings for our members who are age 50 and over. Our goal is to try to have one activity each week. We travel together in groups so as to provide transportation for those who may be unable to drive or are uncomfortable driving long distances alone.
The group plans events and outings. At each get-together we discuss with the group any ideas or suggestions they might have for activities in the months to come. We also try to keep those in the group informed of the needs of any who might not be there or might not be able to attend.
Activities range from trips to local restaurants to day-trips to historical places of interest in Arizona and surrounding areas. Some months we just have potluck luncheons in our fellowship hall. We have had cookouts. We also have enjoyed game nights in member’s homes when everyone just brought snacks.
With weekly donations this year from our group, we have provided food for special outreach occasions, for families with a loved one who is ill. When someone losses a loved one, we provide and serve a meal at the time of the Memorial Service. We have a card ministry that sends, Birthday, Anniversary, Sympathy, Missing-You and Get-well cards and YAH recently purchased storage cabinets that were needed for one of our classrooms.
If you have any questions regarding our Young At Heart program, have recommendations for upcoming events, or would like to become involved in this ministry, please contact Max Bell.
