Northside Kids Parent Promise: 1. 2. 3. 4. Because Children are important to God, we screen all volunteers. Because we believe that the most important relationship a child will ever have is with our Savior Jesus Christ, everything we do will focus on how to get, build, and maintain that relationship. Because we believe that Gods Word is the foundation for all we do, we will make it the focus of our activities and model that mindset in our daily lives. Because we believe that the family unit is Gods perfect plan to grow a child, we will gladly walk beside you as you train up your child, and will offer programs to support the Biblical nurture and admonition of each child that will come through our doors.
