“Whoever welcomes one of these children in my name welcomes me.”
During worship the nursery is attended by at least one adult volunteer or more, depending on the need. Check-in begins at 9:15 a.m.. As a registered childcare during the week, we pride ourselves on a clean environment and trustworthy volunteers. There is even a private space available for nursing mothers. You are also free to go in and out of the worship center as needed to take care of your child/ren. (Many of our young parents do!)
Children Under 10
At Heartland we want children not just to learn about God, but to experience God. That’s why we prepare a special worship environment for children every week - so that they can sense the awesome wonder of God. Our trained leaders walk kids through the adventure of worship using “The Children and Worship Program,” based on the resource book Young Children and Worship.
Youth ages 11+
Youth ages 11+ remain in the worship center for the entire service. Worship and sermons are planned with this in mind. In an age of distraction, we make every effort to engage the attention and participation of everyone – including youth.
Sunday Discipleship Hour
After Sunday Worship, discipleship classes are offered for all children and youth, preschool age to high school. For more information about the Discipleship classes offered, visit our Sunday Discipleship page.
Classes meet after the fellowship hour. Room locations for each class can be found at our Welcome Center.
Students in 6th-12th grade gather every Sunday night at 6:00 p.m. Our brave and experienced leaders Tim and Margie Ropp strike a balance between silly fun and crucial conversation around God’s Word. Visit our youth group page for more information.
