Harvest Kids

INFANTS - GRADE 5 
Sundays @ 9 & 10:30 AM

Ministry Contact: Terry Cox

Harvest Kids is our Sunday morning children's program. It is designed to be safe, fun, and form faith in children.  First-time guests and weekly students are welcomed and introduced to God's word through scripture readings, story time, song, and interactive play.  Our goal is to partner with your family as you raise your children or grandchildren to be people who love God and love others.

First time at Harvest Kids: When you arrive, you will find a designated check-in at the double glass doors down in the Harvest Kids Wing. Helpers will teach you about our check-in station, collect necessary information, and help your child get to their Harvest Kids classroom.  For our Check-out process, please arrive at the glass doors and present the Check-out security sticker that you received at Check-in.  A member of the Harvest Kids team will retrieve your child and bring him/her to you. 

Preschool (infants - VPK): Meet in the Harvest Kids Wing @ 9 & 10:30 AM. The Nursery/Preschool environment is a safe & special place filled with love, laughter, and learning. We believe that children are a gift from God and can experience and learn about God's love right from the start. Your child will receive professional care from a staff of background-screened and trained caregivers.

Snacks are served in our VPK rooms.  Please make us aware at check-in of any food allergies that your child has.

In our preschool program, we want our students to learn these three truths:
-          God made me.
-          God loves me.
-          Jesus wants to be my friend, forever. 

Elementary (K-Grade 5): Meet in the Harvest Kids Wing. At 9 AM we meet as one large group (K-5). At 10:30 AM we begin and end in small groups (grade specific). Small groups are led by consistent leaders who have been background-screened and trained. In small groups we play, create, and learn together about a new Big Idea each month.  We gather together as a large group (K-5) to experience the Bible story in a fun and creative way.

Illness: Please keep your child at home or with you in worship if s/he has a fever or is experiencing new symptoms that could indicate something contagious.

Big Idea: Every month we focus on a new characteristic of God; what God is doing inside of us to change the world around us. All month long we learn skills to take home and share our new skills with others. 

When our Elementary students leave our program, we want them to know these three truths:
-          I can trust God no matter what.
-          I need to make the wise choice.
-          I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Communion

If you opt to check-out your child early so that he/she can participate in communion, please keep your child with you for the remainder of the worship gathering. 

Mission

We want our younger members to know that God is using them right now, as they are, to help and serve others. No matter how big or small or rich or poor, God uses us to do the work of the church. 

For the year 2019 Harvest Kids will be doing a combination of hands-on projects outside Harvest and in-class projects too. There are opportunities for kids of all ages and their families to participate.
