runs during all weekend services
You need to be refilled.
You need time to concentrate on what the Lord has to say about how you live. You need time to worship Him, and we want your children to do the same. Our Harvest Kids ministry is for all children, ages birth through grade 5. It takes place during all weekend services.
Have peace of mind while you worship
You can leave your children with us, knowing that everyone who serves in Harvest Kids, from Nursery through Grade 5, has been screened and has had a background check. We offer pagers to parents of infants and toddlers (or any parent who feels they need one). We also have a private nursing room for moms, and our toys are sanitized every week. In our nursery, we have a ratio of one adult for every 2-3 infants.
What to Expect at Harvest Kids?
At check-in you’ll get printed name tags for your children and a parent receipt with a matching, randomly generated, 3 digit code. You’ll show this parent receipt to pick up your children at the end of the service.
After children are checked in, they head to their classrooms. They’ll meet up with their friends and class leaders and participate in some “warm up” activities prior to Large Group Worship and Teaching.
We love when children sing loud and dance during worship. We also love when they close their eyes and lift their hands and sing quietly. Both please the Lord and both forms of worship point to Jesus Christ as the King.
Each week we open our Bibles and teach with authority in a manner that children can understand. We believe strongly that children should never be bored with the Bible, and we work hard to make sure that doesn’t happen.
The children experience a Harvest-style small group in an age appropriate format. Scripture memorization, prayer and fun, intentional activities are included to promote personal application of large group teaching.
Beyond the weekend…
AWANA is an international children’s discipleship ministry centred on the Gospel and focused on scripture memory. AWANA establishes welcoming, supportive environments where kids learn how a personal relationship with Christ affects their everyday lives. As kids in AWANA discover God’s love and their identity in Christ, they become disciple-making disciples who reach out to their friends.
Every Child Ministry
In Harvest Kids, we want every child to feel welcome. The first purpose of our Every Child Ministry is to provide a social environment appropriate for children with special needs that focuses on God’s word, prayer, and worship. The second, and equally important, purpose is to give all parents an opportunity to attend church and to be ministered to by the word of God.
Harvest Summer Kids
Harvest Summer Kids Camp runs for a week in July each summer. It’s a week jam-packed with fun and adventure, with Jesus as our focus each day. Harvest Summer Kids Camp is for children age 4 through Grade 5. Four year olds attend camp for the morning only. Children in SK-Grade 5 choose two electives, one for the morning and one for the afternoon.
