Partnering with the Chief of Police, NorthStar leads the Alcohol/Drug Abuse Prevention Coalition in developing "The Chief's Kids". This ministry focuses on the five truths each week: Christ, Character, Community, Citizenship & Challenge. Our target age is K-5th. Chief's Kids meets every Monday at 6:00.m. in Springdale Apartment Complex, and now in Bristol Housing Authority. "Sheriff's Kids" began in August, in Damascus, Virginia. Chief's Kids and Sheriff's Kids will have a Christmas Store for the children on December 15th. This store gives the children an opportunity to buy Christmas toys with their points earned for attending their meetings on Mondays. Check out the Chief's Kids Page.
