Family Framework

At Northview, we realize that every week matters. That’s why we have developed a family plan to help you make the most of each moment; we call this the Family Framework. The Family Framework is filled with activities and events for families with children ages birth through 18.

Where do I go on my first time to Northview?

When you arrive on campus for your first visit, please stop by our first-time guest information station. We have cheerful greeters ready to meet your family and quickly get all the necessary information to get your child registered for Northview Kids.

What’s the check-in process like?

When you arrive at Northview, you can sign in at any check-in computer located in the Lobby or in the Northview Kids wing. Simply search by your last name and then click on your family. Select the name of your child, then the Northview Kids logo, to be sure your child gets assigned to his or her correct classroom. You and your child will receive nametags and an ID number tag. Your child will not be released from his or her classroom until we receive the matching ID number tag back from you at pick up.

Is the environment safe?

Our volunteers must complete a volunteer application, pass a background check and submit references. For your child's safety, our volunteers never serve alone. Our rooms have open layouts so children are always in view, no matter where they are.

What if Northview Kids needs to contact me during the service?

During check-in, we will either get your cell phone number, or your child’s ID number will flash on our Auditorium screens. Trust us, we can catch your attention.

Is the curriculum the same for all services?

Yes. It is our desire to provide a creative, safe and exciting experience for every child. Having consistent programming at each service helps us reach that goal and gives our volunteers a common focus, vision and passion.


GraceWorks Special Needs Ministry ministers to families at Northview who have children with special needs or who are medically fragile. Our mission is to teach kids with special needs about Jesus, to create an environment where all children are accepted and loved, and to develop relationships with children with special needs and their families.

We offer an inclusion ministry at all of our campuses. Children can be paired with a buddy or “GraceGiver” and given extra support in their typical classrooms during weekend services.

At the Carmel Campus we have both an inclusion ministry and a special needs classroom, The Prairie, for children who are better served in an environment modified to meet their specific needs.

If your child would benefit from being served by this ministry, we'd love to hear from you.
