If you are visiting for the first time with your children, we ask you for some essential personal information: parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birth dates, contact information, and any special things you want us to know about your child(ren) (i.e. allergies, special needs, etc.). Your information is entered into our data base to help maintain our safe and secure check-in procedures and parent paging system.
To ensure your child’s safety, all Heritage Kids volunteers and staff must pass a background check. The Children’s wing entrance and exit is supervised and only accessible by volunteers, staff, and parents and children who have an ID tag. Children and parents are issued a secure ID tag with a unique code to use in check-in and pick up. Should we need to contact you while your child is in Heritage Kids, we will notify you using the unique code on your child’s ID tag.
We provide infants and toddlers with a safe and loving environment. Our church nursery is staffed with experienced adults who are properly trained to care for your child and show God’s love to your child through interactive play.
3 years to Kindergarten
We introduce children to basic biblical concepts. Our classroom teachers are trained to use the First Look Curriculum and this curriculum uses an approach that repeats concepts so that young minds and hearts will grasp significant things about our great Creator.
During the weekend services, elementary children (Grades 1-5) participate in Kid’s Church. During large-group teaching time, the Bible is made alive in fun, creative ways. Each month we introduce a character virtue and Bible verse to memorize.
Following the large-group teaching, the children divide into grade-level small groups with teachers. In small group, children participate in lesson-reinforcing activities including games, crafts, prayer and discussion groups. 4th and 5th grade girls and boys have separate classes and the third weekend of each month the 4th & 5th graders attend a class called “VERITAS” that helps them answer questions about God, the Bible, faith, and how to live it in the real world.
Be a part of our children’s ministry opportunities working with children and teaching them about Jesus. We need your help during weekend services in classrooms and at the kiosk, and during the week with AWANA and HBA.
