heartland kids

our vision

  • We want to share the love of Jesus and the message of the Bible to children and plant seeds in their hearts that will blossom into a beautiful relationship with Jesus Christ, as they grow closer to Him. 

  • Teaching them to:

    • Read scripture daily

    • Pray daily

    • Listen to the Holy Spirit

    • Share the Good News 

  • Taking one step at a time.

  • All of our children are precious, so we take their safety very seriously. In order to help us care for your children it is important to make a visit to the children's check-in table in the lobby before you send them to class. A helper will be available to walk you through the electronic check-in process and answer any questions you may have. Our kids from infant through 1st grade go directly to class after check-in. Our 2nd through 5th grade kids join the adults in the service, and are released from the auditorium to class. If you arrive after the check-in table has closed, please go with your child when released from the auditorium to check them in at the classroom. All of our classrooms are staffed with two screened adult workers at all times.

  • It is important to remember to notify the check-in helper if your child has any allergies or medical conditions each and every time they join us so we can care for them in the best possible way. Also remember that the portion of the name tag given to you when you sign in your children must be redeemed in order to pick them up after class.

sunday morning check-in

infants and toddlers

The nursery and toddler rooms are places of loving-kindness and nurturing. This ministry is the beginning of leading a child to Christ. Little by little we build a Godly foundation for our young children. The physical needs of these children are met here through God's loving embrace. They experience that embrace through care, stories, and songs provided by caring teachers and assistants.

preschool

These children are growing in their understanding of Christ and His Word by working through weekly lessons that move them chronologically through Bible stories. They learn through many different methods using stories, songs, games, crafts, prayer, and hands-on activities. They also have a monthly memory verse.

kindergarten and 1st grade

These children are learning to live in relationship with God and each other. They are beginning to think more outside of themselves.

 

Their lessons are Christ-centered & chronological. They move from Genesis to Revelation. All scriptures give testimony to Jesus & has a missional focus to respond to God.

 

What they learn aligns with what they are doing in Inferno so the kids can have conversation with friends and family.

ignite (2nd-3rd Grade)

These children are learning about God and how important it is to live a life of faith in a relationship with Him. Their lessons are designed to present the material, including Bible stories, in a way that displays the greatness of God & gives testimony to Jesus. They are part of a large group gathering for worship and teaching, along with a more personal, small group time with their leaders.

Blaze (4th-5th Grade)

At this level, students are taught about the greatness of God and how He empowers them to live a righteous life. Practical, everyday application of Biblical truth is highlighted in a less structured environment, with lots of time for discussion. These students also begin to participate in Communion with their parents and the church body.
