Our children’s services are fully staffed with adults and high school students who are committed to teaching and ministering to children. You can be confident that your child is well-cared for and having a great time learning about God while you worship.

 

In our 1st — 5th grade environments, our purpose is to help kids know God and connect them with others. Our children’s ministry team delivers top notch services that are sure to wow your children while also teaching them about the principles of God’s Word. Through Bible-based object lessons, engaging Bible stories, character applications, and small group activities, kids learn all about Jesus.

 

Heartland Kids Ministry is offered during both of our Sunday services at either 9:45am or 11:30am.

NURSERY

Our nursery is divided into two classes:

 

  • Infants – Newborn to 18 months
  • Babies – 18 months up to 36 months old

 

Our nursery is staff with professional, caring adults who provide a safe and secure environment conducive to the child’s physical, social and spiritual growth. When you are confident in leaving your baby in the care of our team, then you are able to worship with a sense of security. We have taken great care to prepare our nursery rooms to be the best environment for your baby with age appropriate toys and an opportunity to interact with others. As we hold babies, we pray for them to receive all that God has for them in life. We believe every child we pray for will be touched by God.

 

Heartland considers the nursery to be an important area of ministry, both for the parent and the child.

Preschool

Our preschool is divided into 2 classes: 3 years old and preschool – kindergarten. During services, your child will be in the care of several trained volunteers, all of whom meet required background standards.

Our goal is to encourage preschoolers in a growing, loving relationship with Jesus Christ and others in an atmosphere where they feel a sense of belonging. We present biblical learning materials with a hands-on approach to help establish in the hearts of the children an active faith toward God and His Word. We have designed age appropriate classes just for them. We teach the simplicity of the Gospel through a variety of stories, crafts, Bible action songs and other activities. Every lesson taught reinforces Bible truths. Children can be ministered to individually during this time.

NEXT CHILD DEDICATION SERVICE – COMING IN THE FALL

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 second service.

Frequently asked Questions:
HOW OLD DOES MY CHILD HAVE TO BE TO ATTEND SUMMER BLAST?
Summer Blast is for children 4 years old to entering 5th graders.

WHAT DO I DO TO CHECK-IN WHEN I ARRIVE WITH MY CHID?
We will begin checking in at 8:30 AM EACH DAY. At that time you can take your child to the designated areas where they will meet their group leader.

CAN MY CHILD BE IN THE SAME GROUP AS THEIR FRIENDS?
Yes; however, it is important that you note the names of their friends on their online registration forms. Additionally, please understand that if your child and their friend are vastly different in age, it will be difficult to put them in the same group.

CAN MY CHILD JUST MEET ME OUTSIDE AT THE END OF THE MORNING?
Safety is the number one priority at Summer Blast. Because of this, you must pick up your child in their small group area at 12:00 PM each day. You must present your child’s claim ticket to their small group leader and then AGAIN at the exit doors, so please keep your ticket with you. If you have designated someone else to pick up your child, please make sure that you have either (a) given the pick-up ticket to that person, or (b) received written permission from our Children’s Director, Mikey Faulkner.

WILL CHILDCARE BE PROVIDED BEFORE, DURING, OR AFTER SUMMER BLAST?
Childcare will not be provided before or after Summer Blast unless you are serving with us. Doors open at 8:30 AM each morning, and the program will end at12:00 PM. Please be prompt when picking up your child.

WILL LUNCH OR SNACKS BE SERVED DURING SUMMER BLAST?
Snacks will be served each day. Lunch will not be provided. If your child has a food allergy, please make sure to note it on the online registration form.

WHAT IF I CAN SERVE BUT NOT EVERYDAY?
We need lots of people serving to make Summer Blast a success! Even if you cannot commit to serving every day, we would love to have your help. If you are interested in serving, please register online, and you will be contacted by the Summer Blast team.
