“Whoever welcomes one of these children in my name welcomes me.”
During worship the nursery is attended by one professional child care worker and one adult volunteer. Check-in begins at 9:15 a.m. As a registered child care during the week, we pride ourselves on a clean, safe, and fun environment. There is also a private space available for nursing mothers. You are free to go in and out of the worship center as needed to take care of your little ones.
HEARTLAND KIDS (AGES 3-5TH GRADE)
We want kids to experience God in a way that is real, relevant, and age-appropriate. We believe the family plays the most important role in the discipleship of children (and research backs this up). So we want Heartland to be a place that encourages families to learn and grow together. Our Sunday morning worship experience is geared toward that vision. Kids begin the worship service with their families, singing songs together and saying prayers together. Then they are invited forward and blessed during the "Children's Blessing." Then they are led to the education wing for an age-appropriate learning experience we call "Heartland Kids." Two trained teachers lead this time together, guided by the Grow Curriculum for preschool and elementary.
Grades 6+ 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 morning worship (10:30-10:45 a.m.), there is time for coffee, snacks, and conversation. At 11:00 a.m. we begin what we call "Discipleship Hour."
For more information about all the offerings, including those for children, visit our Sunday Discipleship page.
Classes meet after the fellowship hour. Room locations for each class can be found at our Welcome Center.
