Welcome to HBC Kids!

HBC Kids exists to see children come to a knowledge of Christ that will lead to a life of faith as we plant, water, and grow the seed of the gospel. This will be accomplished through purposeful curriculum, intentional relationships, and partnering with families.

I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 1 Corinthians 3:6

Our desire is to encourage and support families as God leads. For this reason each ministry provided strives to encourage families and help chilren as they grow and transition from one stage to another.

If you have any questions about our Children's Ministry, known as HBC Kids, please contact Children's Directors: Janna Madsen or Claudia Bucher.

Children's Church

At Highland, we believe that "children are a gift from God; they are a reward from Him" (Psalm 127:3).

We want to help children bridge the gap between nursery and attending / participating in “big” church. It is our goal at Highland to have children join in worship with all ages rather than be segregated. For this reason we provide our Children’s Church Ministry only during the sermon time, for ages 3-6 years old. Ideally, these children will attend service until the sermon so that they may learn about worshiping God and get used to sitting in service with their families. With this in mind, our Children’s Church structure and program is designed to train children as we strive to help prepare them to participate in corporate worship. We provide "Power Packs" with a Bible, notebook, and other items to help children learn to listen and participate in the Sunday sermon. Children's Church workers will meet you in the foyer outside the sanctuary to receive your children and take them to Children’s Church; you can pick them up from their classroom after service. 

Sunday School for Kids

Our Sunday School classes are designed to be a fun, safe, and age-appropriate learning time for children. We want to help reinforce the biblical instruction they receive at home through fun Bible lessons, projects, singing, offering, and interaction with other children. Our Preschool class is currently using the Bible in Life from David C. Cook. This curriculum helps introduce them to biblical truths and how they relate to their everyday lives and relationships. Our Kindergarten through 5th grade classes are currently using a curriculum from Answers in Genesis that will take them through the Bible from Creation to Christ. This curriculum introduces them to some foundational theological truths, apologetics, and a chronological approach to the Bible in an age-appropriate manner. A more detailed scope and sequence is available by quarter.

We provide classes for ages 3 years and up from 9:30-10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings between our two morning services at 8:15 and 10:45 a.m.
