Children are important to God. Jesus tells us in Mark 10:14-16 to "let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.
Hillside believes children are a very important part of the church, and our desire is to help nurture each child's faith through fun and interactive activities that are designed to help teach kids about God and help them grow in their faith. We are committed to providing a fun, safe and comfortable environment for each child.
WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE?
Our Kids Alive Nursery program (Sundays, 10 am) serves children from birth through 2 years of age. HCC provides three Nursery classrooms for ages 0-2 years old. The infant classroom caters to children from birth to to 1 year old (or walking); the 1 year old room is set up for 1-2 year old children; and our 2 year old classroom enjoys curriculum for toddlers ages 2-3 years old.
Our Kids Alive program (Sundays, 10 am) is split up into two groups. Junior Kids Alive focuses on 3 years-Kindergarten. Kids Alive focuses on 1st through 5th grade. Each week children participate in an interactive lesson, worship, crafts and games that are geared towards the appropriate age group. Kids in both groups learn about Jesus and how to apply his teachings to their everyday lives (example: forgiveness, loving others, kindness, etc.).
Hillside Christian Community uses the same curriculum (Orange Curriculum) from 3 years old through high school. This is to help ensure that leaders, parents and volunteers have a comprehensive plan for kids from the time they start Kids Alive to the time they graduate.
