For 3-year-olds through 5th graders, Sunday School meets every Sunday at 10:00 am.
In the Pre-K & Kindergarten class, the children experience God and God’s love through movement, singing, different art mediums, or the five senses. We use the “Growing in Grace and Gratitude” curriculum. Adult caregivers are provided resources for at-home faith formation.
For the elementary-aged children, Northminster uses a rotational model for teaching Sunday School. The session’s Biblical story or theme is taught multiple ways over multiple weeks. Our curriculum, “Deep Blue,” uses music, art, science, movement, and cooking to explore God’s Word! The children are divided into two groups: 1st through 2nd graders and 3rd through 5th graders. Contact Jennifer Filpi with questions.
Sign your child or your children up for Way Cool Sunday School.
Each summer, Northminster offers a week long learning experience. The week is filled with incredible Bible-learning that kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Crafts, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the activities that help faith flow into real life. (Because everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.)
Be on the lookout for updates on VBS 2020 starting in January!

You Belong Here Coffeehouse
Youth Sunday School has a combined class of Middle and High School students. The class now uses “Coffeehouse,” which is a topical curriculum tailored for tweens and teens. Each week, youth have lessons that help relate faith to everyday life! The youth meet in the “you belong here” coffeehouse in room 201! Join us for coffee, snacks, and great conversation!
Please contact Jennifer Filpi if you would like to know more information about Youth Sunday School.

Adult Bible Study: Where the Wild Things Are ~ A Bible Study Class
Bible study is sometimes like a school that is teaching to a test: facts, figures, doctrines, and Presbyterian theology. Scripture becomes as tame and predictable as a well-trained miniature show dog. We’re going to consider Scripture as a wild thing and let it take us where the wild things are. We’ll look for a wild and free God both on ancient pages and in our very lives. Bring your own seat belt and crash helmet.
We’ll start with Adam and Eve as a story, not of guilt and original sin, but of how to live a life of love. The goal is to leave our discussions saying, “I’ve heard that story all my life, but I’ve never thought of it that way before!”
“Let the wild rumpus start!”
Connections Class invites you to join a 6-week Marriage Class. Rev. Patrick Day will lead this 6-week class beginning on September 15th. This class is open to anyone who would like to spend intentional time building on the strengths of marriage whether you’ve been married for 1 year or 50 years!
Prepare-Enrich is a strengths-oriented assessment, designed for marriage education and enrichment. It assesses satisfaction levels in 6 relationship categories and provides personalized insights into personality, spiritual beliefs, and family systems. Patrick uses the Pre-Marital assessment in working with couples who are preparing for marriage. In this class, couples will complete an assessment specifically designed for those who are already married. They will receive a personalized report, from which they can share as much or as little as they are comfortable in the group setting.
Snapshot of the 6-week class:
- September 15: Introduction to Prepare-Enrich
- Between September 15 & 22: Take the assessment
- September 22: Strengths & Growth
- September 29: Q & A
- October 6: Personality
- October 13: Personal Stress
- October 20: Communication
TODAY @ TEN
This is a class for the curious where the topic changes each week. Each Sunday’s class will stand alone, allowing you the opportunity to drop in as you are able. Never any ongoing homework; occasionally a few minutes of prep work will be requested. You can expect a different speaker/facilitator almost every week.
In TODAY @ TEN this fall, each Sunday, a standalone topic will be presented so that you can attend when you want, to hear what you want, and to participate as much or as little as you want. Even so, each month from September to December will have its own overarching theme. Look forward to these upcoming topics:
- September—Missions and Me
- October—What Animals Can Teach Us
- November—Stewardship of the Earth
- December—Tripping Through Advent
