CONNECTING KIDS TO GOD’S WORD THROUGH STORY

The best way to reach a child is to tell a story.  Each weekend on all of our campuses, kids (babies to 5th grade) experience the life-changing power of Jesus and His word through worship and story.  We’ve designed our kid environments with your child in mind to be safe, fun, and filled with age-appropriate learning tools.

THE WEEKEND EXPERIENCE

Energetic Worship

We love to lift Jesus’ name high in worship and kids do this better than anyone.  

Kids learn both new and old songs, and hand motions to help them engage.

Creative Bible Teaching

We strive to captivate the hearts and imaginations of kids by creatively telling them the stories of the greatest book ever written…the Bible.  We use discussions, activities and crafts to help kids connect and apply God’s word to their lives.  

Relationships

We aren’t meant to do life alone.  We find it important to help kids build friendships, so kids are grouped by age and grade.  As families commit to attending the same service each weekend, your kids will see familiar faces, and their relationships will grow.

Age-appropriate

Classroom environments, materials, and activities have been designed in a way your child will understand.  Our desire is to make God’s word accessible to each age group.

Safety

When kids feel safe, they can relax and learn (and so can their parents!).  Each weekend your child is assigned a random code that matches to both their tag and your parent receipt.  All volunteers are screened through an interview and federal background check, and security personnel monitor each hallway.

Fun

Kids love fun, and when they’re having fun, they can’t wait to come back.  


FIRST VISIT

Each campus has a check-in desk designated for first time visitors, where we’ll meet your family, register your child in our database, and connect you with a volunteer to show your child their classroom.  

We’ll ask for the following info: name, birthdate, address, phone number and special instructions, like allergies.


 CHECK-IN

Our weekly check-in process is simple and user-friendly.  We’ll provide you with a barcoded tag, specific to your family, that you’ll use each week to check in.  Just scan your tag at one of our check-in kiosks, select the child you’d like to check in, and then grab the nametag and parent receipts that print.

Each time you check in, a random security code will be generated and will appear on both your child’s name tag receipt and your parent receipt.  Your child will wear the name tag portion and you’ll keep the parent receipt for pick up.  

In case we need to notify you during the service, your security code will appear on screens in the worship center. Please exit the worship center immediately and look for a HarvestKids leader who will take you to your child’s room.


BEYOND THE WEEKEND

Weekly Devotional

We’ve created a weekly resource that provides follow up devotionals and questions you can do with your child, helping to hit home what they learned.  

AWANA

Awana is our weekly program for kids that runs on Wednesday nights during the school year, where kids learn about Jesus through stories, games, and memorizing Bible verses.  

High Five

Our epic, unforgettable, high-energy, explosive-fun, kids-talk-about-it-all-year-long, elective-based day camp for kids is one of a kind and runs every summer on all of our campuses.  


SPECIAL NEEDS

We believe that each child matters.  Since not all children are able to learn in a traditional setting, we provide options for kids with special needs — including one-on-one’s within the classroom environment — that allow them to connect to God’s word on their level.
