Loop Kids
Welcome to Loop Kids, Park Near North's ministry to children from birth through grade 5. At NN Loop Kids, we desire to see every member of the family come to know God and make Him known. It is our joy to come alongside parents, grandparents, and caretakers to help equip and encourage them to do the important work that God has called them to do—discipling their kids!

Upcoming Events

Parent and Child Dedication

We believe that your commitment as a parent to helping your child follow Jesus is something to celebrate and announce to your church family. We also take this opportunity for our church family to declare our partnership with you and support your family in your journey to raise a child who loves and follows Jesus one day.
Our Parent & Child Dedication Orientation Class is the first step towards dedicating your child at Park Near North and publicly declaring your commitment to this mission as a family. The next classes will be held virtually on
Monday, March 18 from 8-9 PM and again on Monday, April 22 from 8-9 PM. This class is a required first step before participating in a Dedication Service at Park Near North. To register, please go here.

CIY SuperStart! (Grades 4-5)

SuperStart is a high-energy weekend event in which preteens (4th and 5th graders) can learn and grow in their relationships with friends, leaders, and most importantly God. 
Even though we will only be gone for 25 hours, we have a feeling that your preteen will not forget this experience anytime soon. Click here to learn more about SuperStart and to register.
