Children’s Ministry Highlights
Children during Sunday
Ignite at 9:30 AM
Children are invited to enter freely into the Ignite worship space on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am from September through May (except November 26th and December 31st, 2023). Volunteers are present to support families at this time.
Nursery during 10:00 AM Worship Service
Children ages 0 to 3 are invited to the nursery from 9:45 am until 10 minutes after the end of the service under the care of our SafeChurch volunteers. Sunday morning worship begins at 10:00 am.
Sunday School for Children during 10:00 AM Worship Service
Children ages 4 through 4th grade are invited to remain with their grown-ups in the sanctuary until they are dismissed for Sunday School during the service. SafeChurch volunteers will escort children to their classrooms for a Bible lesson, activity, and fellowship. (Children should be registered for Sunday School before going into the sanctuary.) Activity bags are available in the classrooms to be picked up before and returned after the service for children who prefer to remain with their grown-ups during the entire service. All children should be picked up within 10 minutes of the end of the service.
Children in grades 5 and above are welcome to sit together during the worship service, remain with their grown-up, or assist in the children’s classrooms during the service. Sign-ups are required.
We are always welcoming new leaders to our Sunday morning children‘s activities. Contact Jennifer Weitzel if you are interested in learning more.
Gym Jam will return in September from 9:30 – 10:30 am in Highland’s Gym! Parents/Guardians and kids 0-5 are welcome to come and socialize, ride all sorts of riding toys, bounce in the bounce house, slide, run, crawl, and play when the weather gets too cold to play outdoors.
Gym Jam will be every Wednesday from September until March.
