At Heartland, we have a passion for Children’s Ministry! We love sowing into the next generation of world changers! We consider it an honor to encourage and equip people to invest in the next generation. Our Children’s Ministry, called Heartland Kids, is a safe and fun environment for kids to grow in their relationship with God and others.

 

Our next Child Dedication is coming up Sunday, October 9th! During the dedication service, family and friends will gather in an intimate setting while each child is dedicated to the Lord. We will also have a time of prayer for the children during the 11:30am worship experience! You can register to dedicate your child here or you can email tiana.gray@theheartlandchurch.com

At Heartland, we know that your child is a precious gift. That’s why we’ve created an environment that is nurturing, safe, clean, and inviting for you and your little one. It’s always a big step to trust someone with the care of your children, so our preschool teachers are trained and equipped to be the best caregivers possible! Our classroom program for kids 2 and older includes a simple Bible story, crafts, and music during each of our weekend services.

At Heartland, we know that the very early years of your child’s life is so precious and important. We start accepting babies at 6 weeks! Our team is equipped to care for your baby by giving them everything they need to feel safe and loved while in our care. Our team is passionate about praying over your child as they are with us because we know that it is never too early to speak life over their lives!

At Heartland, we know that you want your child to experience growth in their walk with God. That’s why we’ve created an exciting environment that is fun-packed and biblically centered for your child. It’s always a big step to trust someone with your children, so our Kid’s teachers are trained and equipped to be the best caregivers possible! This is a fun and exciting ministry for kids that is offered in each of our weekend services. Heartland Kid’s features worship, exciting teaching and fun in a loving and safe environment. We also provide Small Groups during this time that are grade specific where kids can grow relationally.

It’s that time of year when we begin preparing for our annual Heartland Kids Christmas Production! This year’s show is “A Christmas Yarn”! Directly from Unique Gifts from Luxurious Yarns, (U.G.L.Y), the world’s leading manufacturer of Ugly Christmas Sweaters! On December 11th, 2022 we will bring you the beautiful good news of Christmas through this light-hearted, silly, play put on by our very own Heartland Kids!

PLEASE NOTE: In order for your child to be involved, it is required that you register them and understand the calendar and commitment in the links below. 

We will have an in-person informational meeting, on September 18th, after both services. This meeting isn’t mandatory, but it is being made available for any questions about this year’s production that are not answered on this website. Below are some helpful questions that we know that you’ll have.

CHILDREN’S PRODUCTION FAQ’S

Why do we have a Kid’s Christmas Production?

Here at Heartland, we believe in building and empowering the next generation. We want the children of our church to have the opportunity to grow and develop the precious gifts God has given them. Our productions are centered around an aspect of the Christmas story with a fun twist! We believe it provides a space for kids and families to make some lasting memories. We are so excited to see your kiddos shine!

What areas of the production will my child be involved in?

We have three main sections of involvement for our production each year including choir, acting, and dance. Each Is important! Please note that while our acting positions are currently full at this time, we still have dance and choir roles available.

As you register, please select one area only for your child to be involved with. Each one takes time and dedication and comes with its own practice schedule! Again, please note that selecting a specific area does not guarantee that your child will be placed in that area. There are occasions when children have to drop out due to schedules and sickness, so please select the acting tab if your child is interested in this area.

How will I know what role my child has received? 

Unless you selected Acting or Dance, all Choir roles are given upon registering. If you selected Acting or Dance our leads for these areas will contact you after registering to confirm your child’s role. You will find the schedule corresponding to your child’s role below.
