Heartland Kids vision statement:
To partner with families, to love children well and show them who Jesus is.
Partnering with and resourcing parents
We believe there are very few things in a parent’s life as wonderful as raising children. Our hope is that we can come along side families with resources, prayer and community.
Creating fun and engaging environments
We believe the Bible is always exciting and never boring. We believe worship is fun! Our hope is to get kids excited about Jesus and help them understand the big message and the big plans He has for them.
Teaching children about Jesus!
We believe kids learn best in intentional small groups where they experience consistent relationships and learn to apply God’s words to their lives. We want preschoolers to take a first look at who God is and understand that…
- God made me
- God loves me
- Jesus wants to be my friend forever
As kids transition to elementary school, we want to begin taking them deeper in their understanding of God by helping them understand that…
- I can trust God no matter what
- I need to make the wise choice
- I need to treat others the way I want to be treated
WHAT TO EXPECT:
On your first visit, we ask for the following personal information: parent/legal guardian names, child(ren)’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for each child. This information is entered into our database to help maintain our secure check-in system and serve you well.
Each member of our Heartland Kids Dream Team passes a background check, and receives training specific for the age group they serve. No one without a background check on file will be allowed in a classroom with other children. We use a security tag system for check-in and pick-up, and a texting system for parents/guardians in case we need to reach you during the worship experience.
What your kids will experience
Your kids will be dropped off in their age appropriate small group/classroom where they will connect with consistent leaders. Our morning includes a large group experience with engaging live storytelling or a video presentation of the Bible and dynamic worship. Children will then learn to apply the Bible lesson in their small group with fun activities, crafts and creative life challenges.
