Children’s Ministry at HCC partners with parents to encourage children to know, love, and follow Jesus. We seek to help guide children from infancy to teen years in both knowing God and making God known.
Our nursery is staffed by a trained coordinator (Nursery Coordinator) and assisted by volunteers. It is available during Sunday School times and during regular Worship Services for ages 0-2.
CHILDREN & WORSHIP
Sunday Ministries-children released during 10:30am Worship just after the Children’s Message.
Grow // Pre-K
With the youngest in our church, we offer basic sacred stories that focus on instilling in each child the truths that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever. By supporting families that desire to grow their children in the Christian faith, we hope to incite wonder, encourage discovery, and light sparks of passion in these fertile hearts of the next generation as the grow in their faith.
Wonder // K-3
The goal for these years is to create a special place of worship and wonder where children can come to encounter God, to be still with God, and to listen to God. It is a place where children come to nurture their spiritual life and their innate sense of God’s Spirit. The approach uses hands-on materials, allowing children to hear the biblical narrative while watching it unfold within a context of fellowship.
Discover // 4-6
These years are some of the earliest that children truly discover their place in the body of Christ. They are critical years as children begin to move from childhood into becoming young adults and fully participating in church. Discover seeks to foster and deepen the God given gift of discovery and excitement of learning and experiencing God as these kids begin to form their identify.
A highlight of the worship service! Children are invited forward to receive a Christ-centered message ad blessing, and they often teach us a thing or two!
We offer VBS and other special events throughout the year that help children engage with God and others outside of Sunday mornings.
HALF DAY PROGRAM
Harbert Church has the privilege of being across the street from Chikaming Elementary School. On days that the students have a half day of school, our church provides educational and exciting experience for kids. All from the school are welcome to come over to the church for the rest of the day and this is staffed completely by volunteers that coordinate activities, plan field trips, and communicate with the school and families. As a program of the church, it is simply an offering of love to families, working parents, our community, and of course the kids!
