The teaching of God’s Word to children is a priority evidenced in Scripture. Concerning the commandments God gave to Moses for the nation of Israel, they were instructed to “teach them diligently to their children” (Deut. 6:7). Also, Proverbs is filled with practical wisdom we are encouraged to impart to our children, even stating that if parents “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” (22:6).
Based upon what we see throughout the Word of God, the emphasis of training kids in godly living falls on the shoulders of parents. HGC is dedicated to equipping parents in this role.
Should you choose to have your child attend our organized Children's Ministry offered during service times, they are meant to be a supplement and support to the Christ centered teaching kids should be getting at home as parents “talk of [God’s Word] when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise” (Duet. 6:7).
Simply put, when parents prioritize Jesus centered living, children follow. When gathering as the church, we want kids within this church family to enjoy relevant, age-appropriate, doctrinally sound, Bible teaching. Parents can be assured that the curriculum is sound and the oversight is done by competent, compassionate adults who dedicate their time in making our Children's Ministry successful.
During the 10am service, we have children's ministry from nursery to 5th grade. Awana has begun and runs through May 2017. This is a midweek children's program on Wednesday evenings between 6:30-8pm. Any children 3 years - 6th grade are welcome. To find out more information and to register your child(ren) online for Awana, click the button below.
