NorthBridge

Families

A Place for the Whole Family


We believe that part of our calling as a church is to build a bridge to the next generation. That is why we put so much energy into our ministries for children, students, and young adults.

One of the best ways we can minister to children is to invest in parents. Our goal is to provide parents with helpful resources to equip them to make a lasting spiritual investment for their children.

Milestone Moments


Milestone Moments celebrate seven rights of passage that are key points in a child's physical and intellectual development. Each Milestone Moment celebration is preceded by a seminar for parents meant to prepare them not only for the Milestone Moment itself but for the season of parenting ahead. Throughout the year we walk with families through each of the Milestone Moments below.
