God loves children—and so do we. It is our joy to partner with you and the Holy Spirit
to see your kids delight in God and be devoted to Him.
Every Sunday morning, while you are experiencing the hope offered to us in the preaching of God’s Word, your child can engage in an age-appropriate safe learning environment filled with songs, encouragement and a story from the Bible. Care is available for Toddlers beginning 15 minutes before the service begins until just after communion. Pre-K through 5th grade worship in song along with their families in the main service and are dismissed to classes just before the sermon.
Here are our four age groupings.
- Nursery Room (for infants and a parent)
- Nursing Mother’s Room (coming soon)
- Early Elementary, Grades K-2
- Elementary, Grades 3-5
PreK Focus: Guide the little children to know they are loved and made by God.
K-2 Focus: Encourage young children to experience the true wonder of God.
3-5 Focus: Invite children to find their place in God’s story.
Coming alongside of you
We are parents too. We recognize that, as parents, we have the God given responsibility to disciple our kids, but helping our kids grow spiritually can feel overwhelming. We are committed to come alongside you to offer resources, encouragement and prayer as you aim to help your kids grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Kids love stories! They are powerful mediums to help communicate the timeless concepts of God’s nature and the way he interacts with mankind. In January 2020 we will be using a new curriculum from David C. Cook ministries. We chose this curriculum for children PreK-5th grade because God is at the center of every lesson; it explores scripture chronologically and tells Jesus’ story through story-telling, activities and games, and draws the children into worship. Check it out online at www.truministry.com/curriculum/.
Take-home Learning Tools: Because parents have the primary role of influence with their kids, we have turned the traditional model (where parents review what was taught on Sunday) on its head. Here, parents are the ones who teach during the week and on Sunday children’s classes review what the parents have already taught. As we progress through the Bible, we provide Home Front Weekly that encourages families to spend time together during the week in God’s Word and introduces children to Sunday’s lesson. We look forward to partnering with your family!
Prayer: Please know that we are praying for you. God is a parent too – he gets you. And our prayer is that as you take steps – little or big – to teach and model a life devoted to God, that you’d sense His presence and blessing over the long haul.
UPcoming Children's and Family events
Date Night Out (date/time TBD): Drop off your child/children for a date night out with your spouse. During this time, we will provide a loving and fun environment for the children while you and your spouse enjoy time building your own relationship. We will do fun crafts and games as well as watch short movie.
It is truly a partnership and a blessing serving the families at Union Hill church. Our Children’s and Family Ministry is expanding; we are opening two new class sessions and hoping to add a fully staffed nursery. We could use your help! If the Lord is calling you to serve or even just to help for a short time, fill out the form below and a member of our staff will contact you.
