Preschool (ages 3&4)
The youngest at Heartland are provided a safe and loving environment to learn about God with experienced teachers. Through the Little Lambs curriculum they enjoy guided play, simple stories and crafts, and beloved rituals. They are also introduced to the basic stories of our faith through colorful God Loves Me Storybooks. Led by Kathy Summers and Chelsea Summers
This year our elementary children will discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus and part of God's big family. The new curriculum "Deep Blue: At Home with God" is a comprehensive Bible study for chilldren. Beginning with Jesus' own family, kids will see how families care for children, build loving relationships, and belong in God's big story.
The lesson incorporates family-themed Bible stories, service learning, arts and crafts, animated video storytelling, and games into a lived-faith experience.
Depending on class size, kids may be divided into K-2nd and 3rd-5th. Led by experienced teachers and mothers Sharon Howe and Wendy Maxson.
Conversational discipleship (all ages)
The goal of discipleship is transformation, not information. Often times information is helpful. But sometimes transformation into Christ's image happens best through conversation. So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. Meet a stranger and discover Christ's presence within them. Share deeply with a trusted friend. Encourage one another, pray for one another, and "stir up one another to love and good works" (Hebrews 10:24).
