Highlands Kids is a safe and secure environment for each child. All volunteers and leaders are carefully screened and supervised, and a stringent security process for all kids provides parents the assurance that their child is being well-cared for during the Sunday Services (gatherings?). In the same way that the adult worship service here at Highlands has been specifically designed for you, we've done the same for your child. We endeavor to make your children's time here the best hour of their week because the future of the church depends on effective ministry to children today.
Highlands Kids teaches The Gospel Project for Kids (by LifeWay). The Gospel Project tells a single story--the story of Jesus and His mission to seek and save the 'lost'. This curriculum guides the children on a three-year chronological journey through the Bible, Genesis to Revelation, to encounter Jesus and learn the essential doctrines of the Christian faith.
- Christ-Centered Study - helps kids understand all scripture from Genesis to Revelation
- Chronological Study of the Bible - that shows kids the bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story of God's redemption
- Missional Application - that helps kids understand how the Gospel empowers us to be outreach-focused and mission-driven
- Age Alignment - that helps Highlands build age-aligned disciples and equips parents to lead spiritual conversations at home.
- Essential Doctrine - that helps kids grasp the basic beliefs of the Christian faith.
6 - 18 months
For our babies, we have a nursery to hold and love on them. We have trained Highland Kids staff to comfort and hold your baby while you enjoy our service here at Highlands. We find it extremely important that the same staff serve in the nursery so your baby or toddler is at ease with the familiarity of the same staff each week.
18 months - 4 years
For our toddlers, we have created bible lessons and activities that are age appropriate and relevant. We want your child to have fun and learn Jesus in an amazing, exciting way! For your convenience and peace-of mind, we provide pagers that you can take with you to worship. This allows our professional Highlands Kids crew to contact you at anytime.
