Northpoint Winter Camp 2019 Recap
Winter Camp for our 4th-6th graders was January 4-6, 2019! Our theme, from John 8:12, was Light of the World: “Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'” We learned that we didn’t have to walk too far from our cabins at Thousand Pines at night to get where it was really dark—probably darker than it is at home. In the same way, we don’t have to walk too far from God to be in another kind of darkness: the kind that keeps us separated from Him—forever. All it takes is one sin against God. Just one. Talking back to our parents. Sneaking cookies from the kitchen cabinet after we’ve been told we can’t have any. Just one sin and we are separated from God, in darkness, forever. And we’ve all sinned. Today. Maybe even in the last few minutes. Seriously bad news, right? For sure. But there is good news. At camp we learned why, like it teaches in John 8:12, that Jesus is The Light of the World who takes away the darkness.
Here’s what it looked like:

Northpoint Winter Camp 2018 Recap
We think we’re number one. We all do. It’s all about me, we say to ourselves. It’s about what makes me happy. It’s all about what I can get. And why not, when the whole world tells us that we’re right to think like that? But is that true? The Bible says no. The Bible says God’s #1 and it’s all about him. The Bible says we’ll only be truly “happy” when God’s first and we’re second.
At camp, we learned why, like it teaches in John 3:30, He [Jesus] must increase, but I must decrease. We learned why, when compared to God, we must say, “I’m NOT #1!”
Northpoint VBS 2017
Okay all you astronomers, we did it! We focused our telescopes on the marvels painted in the night sky by our amazing God at Northpoint’s Galatic Starveyors VBS 2017. We discovered the wonder among all wonders: that the God who created everything there is—the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible—wants a personal relationship with us. Thank you for coming to our clubhouse to learn about the God who is over the moon in love with you.
It’s our amazing privilege in the NP K!DS’ ministries to joyfully support you, our NP parents, as you shepherd your kids to be complete in Christ! We do that by helping to build a biblical foundation, by helping to encourage a heart of worship, and by helping to develop a witness for Jesus Christ. We offer Sunday Morning Programs for kids birth to sixth grade; a Wednesday evening program, AWANA, those 3 years old to 6th grade. In addition to the weekly gatherings, we also take kids to Winter Camp in the San Bernardino mountains each January, and a Vacation Bible School during one week each summer. You’ll find more for each program on this page.

Northpoint offers Sunday morning programs for children during both the 9:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. services. We break Sunday into two sections: Early Childhood and Elementary. Our Early Childhood program serves children birth to kindergarten, where we offer nursery care for children from birth to one-year-old, and Sunday school classes for children three years and above. The Elementary program is for kids grades one through six. Both sections use The Gospel Project for Kids. With it, we go through the Bible every three years to impact the three stages of childhood development from two years old through sixth grade. Our curriculum covers many of the main Bible stories from the Old and New Testaments to demonstrate how each story points to Christ’s redemptive work and our continued need for a Savior to redeem and restore us.

AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, which is a paraphrase of 2 Timothy 2:15. AWANA seeks to help you in training your children to walk in God’s pathways rather than those of the world. Our AWANA Clubs are part of a worldwide ministry, headquartered in Streamwood, Illinois.
