Welcome to Kids Village! Harvestime's Children's Ministry
The Mission of Kids Village is to build lives of children to be firmly rooted and grounded in Christ, to help them become passionate believers whose lives reflect the life of Christ and causes them to reach the world around them!
Kids Cottage (ages Infant to Pre-K)
Kids Cottage is our Nursery Ministry for children ages Infant to Pre-K. It is a place for children to come and have fun, learn about Jesus, play with friends and be loved on. We want to help partner with the parents to prepare their children for their next steps in life. We provide a safe and caring environment for children and ensure that the services times are happy and learning times. We want every child who enters Kids Cottage to feel Christ's love and acceptance.
Kids Village (ages K through 5th Grade)
Kids Village is our Children's Ministry for ages K-5th. Kids Village is a place where each child can come and be equipped to learn and know the plan God has for their life. We want them all to feel loved and accepted by God and passionate about allowing God to change their lives and be encouraged to share the love of Christ with those around them. When a child walks into Kids Village we want them to feel as though they have walked into their own “Kid City”. Kids Village is to be a place of training and discipleship for each child and just like our core verse says it will make them like, “A city on a hill that cannot be hidden.” -Matthew 5:14
Sundays in Kids Village are lively and exciting as kids prepare to learn about God's word! Our 9am Service is a church service designed specifically for kids! Complete with worship, a message specifically designed for kids and a small group time for them to discuss and connect with the message on a more practical level, our first service is really their own "Kids Church"!
During our 10:45am service we offer Rangers and Mpact which are discipleship classes that connect Biblical Principles with practical life application. Children experience games, activities, scripture memorization and have the opportunity to earn badges as they explore Gods Word in their everyday life. For more information see our Rangers and Mpact page.
Kids are welcome to stay for both services on Sunday Morning and do not need to be checked- out in between services. This allows the adults to partake of our many Life Groups during one of the services.
On Wednesday Nights we offer Kids Cottage and Kids Village Services while parents attend one of our life groups or attend the Wednesday Evening Service. The Kids service is designed to dig a little deeper into scripture and teach kids the basic truths of the Bible in a fun and exciting way. Through Bible reading challenges and scripture memorization games and activities, we make diving deeper into God's Word something each child is excited to do and learn!
When You Arrive
When arriving please register at one of our check in stations either upstairs in Kids Cottage or downstairs in Kids Village. Your family will be assigned a number that you will need at the end of service to pick up your child.
In Kids Cottage you will be instructed as to what classroom to bring your child to based on their age. We will then have you give us some brief information about feeding and changing to make sure you and your child have the best experience possible. If at any time during the service your child needs you, your family number will appear upon the screen in the sanctuary to let you know you are needed. At the end of service please bring your number back to the your child's classroom for pick up.
In Kids Village students will enter through the Big Purple doors and will start in our game room until service begins. We serve a snack in between our 9am and 10:45am services, so please make our check in volunteers aware of any allergies your child may have. Parents are asked to stay behind the purple doors for security purposes and for ease of check in. If you would like a tour of Kids Village just ask one of our volunteers and we would love to show you all the awesome classrooms and spaces your child will experience.
At the end of service please bring your number back to the check in station and your child will be brought to you. If at any time during the service your child needs you, your family number will appear upon the screen in the sanctuary to let you know you are needed.
