Faith at Home Events

Despite our grandest efforts on Sunday mornings, where do kids learn best? At home! At North Pointe, we aim to support parents both on Sunday mornings and as they teach their children at home day-to-day. As Church leaders, we are given an average of one hour per week with which to teach children about faith. When compared with the numerous hours that parents have daily with their children, it is obvious that there is a wonderful opportunity at home for children to learn from their parents about a relationship with Christ. But don't panic! 

Faith at Home is an integrated program that teaches parents practical ways that they can achieve this. Events are held during both Sunday morning services on a specified date. We currently offer the following Faith at Home events:

Baby Dedication 
2 & 3 year olds - "Blessings" 
4 & 5 year olds - "My Church" 
Grade 1 & 2 -  "My Bible" 
Grade 3-5 - "Communion & Baptism" 
Grade 6-8 - TBA
Grade 9-11 - "TBA" 
Grade 12 - "Graduation"

At North Pointe, we recognize the importance of families developing their faith at home.  We want to encourage you in this task as you face all the busyness and changes that come with raising children.
