Everyone is welcome here!
All of our activities are open to single people, couples, single parents and families with children. We celebrate the whole household of God. Activities are planned for growth, learning and just plain fun! Our families come in all shapes and sizes and there is a place for you here in our Northminster family.

Parents with a Passion

We are parents of all ages, with kids of all ages - our common goals are becoming better parents and helping each other become better parents. Sometimes we use books about parenting to guide our discussions, but more often we just talk about our recent challenges, successes and funny kid stories. Our conversations are engaging, enlightening and very honest! We also adopt family-friendly, mini-mission projects that can be accomplished in one or two days - a great way to work together as a family and as a church family.

We meet 6:15 p.m. - 7:25 p.m. at the church and begin meeting August 20, continuing through mid-April- anyone can join the group anytime. Happily married, not-so-happily married, single, divorced, widowed, cohabiting, whatever - all are welcome! Feel free to contact Julie Shannon  with any questions at 317.251.9489.

Parents with a Passion welcomes all parents who are seeking support, encouragement, knowledge, and spiritual growth in their parenting and family life. Parenting is a huge undertaking & we are here to help! Wednesday nights starting August- April, we will meet to share, support, discuss parenting topics, & pray for one another. You may choose to come often, but all parents are welcome anytime. All sessions stand alone and are not dependent on previous or future meetings. We have great topics, some amazing baked goods, lots of laughter, strong connections to others & more parenting knowledge. We meet upstairs in the Knox Room! 

Mom to Mom
The moms' group is currently meeting monthly. This group is geared for moms of children kindergarten and under and meets on the 4th Tuesday of the month. We occasionally have a speaker or guest but always have beverages (wine included) and good food and time with the girls. Some moms work outside of the home, some are stay at home. There is a lot of laughter and support. New moms are always welcome and will find it easy to drop into this group. There is often childcare at the hosting home, but is up to the host mom. We also have a girls night out and a family gathering in the summer.

If you are not on the email list for this group and would like to be, email Julie Shannon.

Northminster Preschool and Mother's Day Out Programs

The Northminster Community Preschool program offers classes for children who will by three years old by August 1 of the upcoming school year. The classes for 3/4 year olds meet on Tuesday and Thursday with the option of a morning program at 9:15 - 11:30 a.m. or an afternoon program at 12:30 - 2:45 p.m. The classes for 4/5 year olds are for children who have turned four years old by August 1 and plan to attend kindergarten the following year. The 4/5 classes meet on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with the same morning or afternoon class time options.

The Northminster Mothers'-Day-Out program serves children who are 18 months old by August 1 of the coming school and not yet eligible for preschool. Children in the Mothers'-Day-Out program generally attend one day a week, on Tuesday or Thursday from 9:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. or on Wednesday from 9:15 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. The Wednesday class is specifically for children who are 2 1/2 years old by August 1. Mothers'-Day-Out programming focuses on social skills for young children and adapting to being in a different environment with other people. For many children, it is their first experience being away from Mom and Dad. The children in this program bring their lunch to school, and those in the Tuesday and Thursday classes nap in the afternoon.
