A fun place for children (Crawling Babies - 5th Grade) to learn about God’s love & truth each Sunday through creative Bible teaching, active worship music, cool videos, small group discussion, and interactive activities. We want kids to understand and love God’s Word, learn how God's Story is connected to their story, and then share it with others!
There are a few things for our Parents to be aware of when dropping off their kiddos:
Two Simple Things for you to do before you arrive:
Are you new to Hillside and want to learn more about our Kids & Students Ministry? Do you want to meet other new families? Are you a new volunteer or thinking about volunteering in our Ministry?
If you answered YES to any of these questions then this event is for you!Sign Up
Stay up to date on all things Kids Ministry by following our Instagram account! We also have tons of on-demand content for you and your family to enjoy! From “Move it Mondays” to “Crafting with Staff” and even midweek devotions.
Kid’s Ministry is offered during the Sunday 9:00 & 11:00 a.m. gatherings. We have Kids Ministry Drop-off from Crawling Babies – 5th grade. Doors open 15 minutes prior to the start of each gathering. Please allow extra time for first-time guests to check-in.
We are thrilled to have you come and visit! Fill out our First-Time Family Form HERE. Then when you arrive on Sunday, stop by our First-Time Visitor counter and we will be happy to check your child(ren) in and lead them to the rooms and areas that they are assigned. After your first week, you will be able to pre-check-in while you are at home! Just download the ‘church center’ app! Welcome, and we hope you and your children love Hillside as much as we do!
We run background checks on all our volunteers. We offer a security identification and check-in/check-out system. If you need to be contacted during the gathering, you will be promptly notified through text message. For the health of the children, we cannot accept any sick child at check-in. Among our previously stated safety policies, these are our updates HERE.
We believe that parents are the primary spiritual leaders of their children. We are here to come alongside you as parents and help you as you raise your children in their faith in Christ. We strive to provide resources and tools to help you continue the learning at home that your children received at church. We also believe that children learn so much from seeing their parents model serving in their own environment, so we encourage parents to serve in their children’s areas. The Partnering with Parents Serve Team commits to serving in Kids Ministry at least once a month on a consistent basis. If you’re interested in serving, CLICK HERE.
For all children who need assistance because of a developmental or physical challenge, we provide a safe and loving environment. For Elementary-aged students who have special needs, we provide a class just for them called Super Squad. This class is only available at the 11:00 AM Gathering. If you are interested in learning more, email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This class is designed for parents who want to establish a commitment to raising their child to know Jesus, have a relationship with Him, and invite our church community into this walk with them.
In order to provide an intentional, safe, and loving environment for our kids we need parents & people just like YOU! Every single volunteer in our Ministry plays a huge role in God’s Kingdom work. Our check-in Team, our Special Needs Ministry, Our kid’s worship team, our tech team, our small group leaders, our Preschool leaders, our mid-week helpers, and our teen volunteers. We cannot do Ministry without people like you!SIGN UP NOW
