The children's ministry at Northside Baptist strives to make each child feel welcomed, loved, and accepted as they grow in knowledge and grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This ministry is based upon Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." Our desire is to lay the foundation for each boy and girl to know Jesus as Lord and Savior as the Holy Spirit convicts and then to train them to serve God.

The purpose of Upward is to share the gospel with each child and their family. Sports is second to Christ. Sharing God's love is what Upward is all about. There is always equal playing time for each child and each child will have the opportunity to play every position because we believe that every child is a winner!
