Kids Ministry

Change the world of someone who will change the world.

Fun

Your kids will have a blast!

Safe

Committed to keeping kids safe.

Clean

Our rooms are kept spotless.

Birth To 2 Years

Your baby will experience personal care from our team. We keep our nursery rooms ready for your little ones with age-appropriate toys that are thoroughly cleaned. We also take time to love and pray for your baby each week.

3 Years – 4 Years

In preschool, children start to engage more with their church experience, so we help them interact and build their faith through stories, crafts, and songs that give them Biblical truths. They also start to form relationships with other kids and their teachers.

K – 5th Grade

Every weekend, your children Kindergarten through fifth grade come to a Harvest Valley Kids service where they experience dynamic worship and Biblical teaching. Together, they learn about the Bible and how to have a relationship with God, memorize Scripture, and have fun developing friendships with each other.

What To Expect On Your First Visit

Check-In

Your child is important to us. On your first visit, we need the following personal information which is entered into our secure database check-in system: parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number and any special instructions(allergies, special needs) for each child.

Want to save time and fill out the information prior to attending?  Use our Pre Check-in Form.

Next, you and your child will each get a sticker with a matching code. If for any reason we need to reach you during the service, we will display your child's security code on the screen. Your security code sticker is also what you’ll use to pick up your child after the service.

Bathroom Policy

Nursery (0-2 Years)
We do not change diapers in the nursery. If a child needs a diaper change, you will be notified (see Notifications During the Service below).

Preschool (3-5 years)
Two team members will take your child if they can independently use the bathroom. We will remain outside of the door and will not assist them. If your child is potty-training, please take them to the bathroom before service. If your child needs assistance using the bathroom, you will be notified (see Notifications During the Service below).

Elementary (K-5th)
Two team members will take your child if they can independently use the bathroom. We will remain outside of the door and will not assist them. If your child needs assistance using the bathroom, you will be notified (see Notifications During the Service below).

Nursing Mother’s Room

The Nursing Mother’s Room is available to mother's who are nursing. This private space is located near the restrooms.

Safety

All Harvest Valley Kids volunteers pass a background check, and we have our own safety team to ensure your child’s safety. When you check in, you will receive a security tag that matches the tags placed on your child(ren). Please have your tag ready for the teacher at the door. Only parents/guardians with a tag will be allowed to pick up their child(ren).

Notifications During the Service

Your security tag number will be shown on the screen if we need to contact you during the service. If your tag matches, please promptly go to the Kids Check-in table.

Child Dedications

The purpose of Child Dedications is for parents to present their child before God and the church, committing to seek after His grace and wisdom in carrying out their responsibilities. If you would like to dedicate your child to the Lord, we are excited for you! To sign up, please fill out the Connect Card.

Harvest Valley Kids

We exist to assist parents in their child’s spiritual development so that, in God’s time, the child will come to have a personal and growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We want to engage your family with Christ and live in community.

We provide a child-centered environment where children learn the Biblical narrative about the person of Christ, the role of the Holy Spirit and pursue transformation so that children can recognize His voice and heed His call.

We also believe that spiritual formation is dependent on a partnership with parents because parents are primarily responsible before God for their child’s spiritual journey.

With that in mind, we are honored to partner with families on their faith journey by providing inspiration, resources, and support.
