A fun place for children (Age 2 - 5th Grade) to learn about God’s truth each weekend 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, and learn how to apply God’s Word in their daily lives.
We have been grateful for the kids programming on Sundays in the Fireside Room, and are excited to bring things back UPSTAIRS. Now more than ever, we hope to provide intentional programming and safety for all kids and volunteers so we are asking you to please RSVP your kid(s) prior to arriving on campus for a gathering. You will be sent specific details on check-in and pick-up, in addition to safety precautions you can anticipate within our Kids Ministry.
There are a few things for our Parents to be aware of when dropping off their kiddos:
Three Simple Things for you to do before you arrive:
You can begin RSVP’ing your kids right now! All you have to do is download the church center app and you will be able to see all of the Kids Ministry Gatherings available under the ‘Events’ tab!
Big & Small – God listens to us when we have big feelings!
Have you ever been so upset that all you could do was cry? At this point in our story, Job has been through a lot of tough stuff, and he felt he needed to release all of his emotions against God. Job was so upset, he wanted to know where to go to find God. God listened to how Job was feeling, even though Job was sad and angry. Whatever we are feeling, whether it’s happy, sad, or angry, God will always listen to us. No matter what we may feel, God is there listening to us and wants us to talk about anything.
Emphasize to your kids that they always have a safe place with God. Even if we are angry, sad, or disappointed, God always wants to hear from us. God does not expect us to be happy all of the time! We see from this story in Job that God will always listen to us, no matter how we feel.
From “Move it Mondays” to “Crafting with Staff” and event midweek devotions, join our team throughout the week for opportunities to stay engaged with your Hillside family.
Kid’s Ministry is offered during the Sunday 9:00 & 11:00 a.m. gatherings in the Fireside room. Starting March 21st we will have Elementary Drop-off during both gathering times and starting Easter, we will have Kids Ministry Drop-off from ages 2 – 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! Please stop by our First-Time Visitor counters 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 with your child’s check-in number. 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 email@example.com.
This is a moment you can dedicate to raising and teach ing your child(ren) to know the love of Jesus.
In order to provide an intentional, safe, and loving environment for our kids we need parents just like YOU! As we gear up for Elementary drop off on March 21st and then Preschool - Elementary Drop Off starting Easter, we need to partner with our parents to make sure we able to serve all of the Families of Hillside!SIGN UP NOW
