15 Some people were even bringing infants to Him so He might touch them, but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16 Jesus, however, invited them: “Let the little children come to Me, and don’t stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 17 I assure you: Whoever does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” (Luke 18:15-17 HCSB)
Our desire is for children to flourish and grow in their knowledge of God and Biblical concepts as they grow physically. As a church we are doing our best to guide children in learning foundational truths that will help them as they develop into teens and young adults.
In addition to using structured teaching time, children are taught through music, interactive play, and at times, videos, missionary presentations, and through other special events.
Please note that here at Harmony Baptist we have volunteer staff who will interact with your child in a safe environment. All of the staff working with children have passed background checks.
The church nursery is for newborn babies through children 3 years old and not yet toilet trained. We know that often the first place a baby is cared for outside the home in a group setting is a church nursery. We know how important it is for you to trust that your child is in good hands. With Harmony Baptist, you can expect your child will be cared for in a clean and safe environment by loving and caring volunteers.
Families are welcome to drop their kids off at the nursery at any time during Sunday School or Worship. Some families have their children join them for the music and place them in the nursery during the sermon.
KidsConnect! is HBC’s Sunday School program. It features three classes: Pre-K and kindergarten, 1st through 3rd grade, and 4th and 5th grade. Teachers utilize LifeWay curriculum to deliver applicable biblical truth that reaches children at their level.
YouthConnect! is our Sunday School program for our youth aged 6th-12th grade. YouthConnect! utilizes the current LifeWay Sunday School material to lead teens into a deeper relationship with God through life-altering truth, fellowship, and accountability.
Beyond Sunday School
– PreK – Kindergarten extended Sunday School:
We understand that it can be hard for a 3-year-old to sit through a full sermon, so Harmony offers a great children’s church program for children 3-years-old (and potty trained) through kindergarten that features biblical truth presented in an age appropriate manner through staff members who compassionately engage your child with the love of Christ. If your child is not yet toilet trained they are welcome in our nursery during the service.
– School age Children’s Church 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month for 1st through 4th Grade:
Every Sunday our children join us for worship. On the first and third Sunday they are released before the morning message. On the first Sunday of each month our Children travel to the Life Care Center, a local nursing home, and assist with ministry to residents of this assisted living facility. On the third Sunday our Children have their own time of worship in the fellowship hall.
If you are new and interested in our school age programs we encourage you to visit our welcome center when you check out our Sunday services.
– TeamKid Pre-K through 6th Grade:
TeamKid meets every Wednesday evening beginning at 6:30 pm for dinner. The evening includes games, teaching, scripture memorization, activities and a closing program. It’s a great time of learn about God lead by an outstanding group of volunteers.
