Where do I park?


Parking is available in the deck along Kingswood Drive. If the parking deck is full, please use the parking lots at North Atlanta High School but please do not park along the street.



Where do I take my child if I’m a first time visitor?


During your first visit to Northside, we ask that you come by our Children’s Welcome Area on the first floor. Signage in the building will direct you to this area from the time you enter. Once you complete a simple registration form for your child(ren), you and your child(ren) will be personally escorted to their classroom. Classrooms for preschool children (birth through age 3) and Pre – K through 5th grade are located on the first floor.




Can I bring my child into the adult service with me?


We have creatively designed our Children’s Ministry environments and activities with your child in mind. Please partner with us and allow your child to experience God’s love on their level. However, you are always welcome to bring your children to worship with you and worship packets are available in the Narthex and back of the Faith and Arts Center.
