Our Motto: No Perfect People Allowed!

Children's Ministries


Here at Hillside Wesleyan Church, our mission is to come alongside each parent and raise a disciple who loves God and loves others. It is our goal that every time your child is here, they feel the love that their church, leaders, peers, and Jesus have for them. Along with our standard weekly activities, we have many opportunities each month to come together as a community and grow our relationships with one another. You and your child will be greeted with love and open arms each time you arrive! We can’t wait to meet your family!


Nursery (0-23 Months)

Sundays during our 10:15 service

Nursery is provided for ages newborn-23 months old during our Sunday School hour and during our Worship Service. All volunteers have had training from our coordinators and have passed the required background check. When you bring your baby in nursery, you can be sure they will be well taken care of. Each child will receive a name tag and the guardian will receive a pager in case a need should arise.

 

A Cry Room is available in the back of the sanctuary for parents.  It is equipped with rocking chairs, changing table and a live stream of the service. Feel free to use as needed.


Preschool (2 yr-preK)

Sunday School (9:00am-10:00am) (Temporarily unavailable due to Covid)

Preschoolers are invited to attend this Sunday School class designed just for them.  Our preschool coordinators will greet your child upon entering, and your child will enjoy play time, a snack, songs, Bible stories and a craft. Each child will receive a name tag, and the guardian will receive a pager in case a need should arise.

 

Children’s Church during the 10:15 service– Preschoolers are dismissed from service right before the sermon to have their own children’s church. Play time and bible stories will be shared with your child during this time. Preschoolers can be picked up immediately following church service.

 


Elementary Aged (PK-5th Grade)

Sunday School: (9:00am-10:00 am) Temporarily unavailable due to Covid.

After singing songs as a group, kids are divided by age groups to attend an elementary-appropriate and interactive Sunday school class geared to them. A sensory friendly classroom  is available for kids K-5th who tend to learn with different styles and in a low lighted setting!

 

The Kidz Kafe and General Store is open Sundays 9:50am-10:00am for  K-5th graders! It’s a time to hang out with other kids and grab a healthy snack and (once a month) purchase something from the general store with their sticker charts. Kids get stickers for bringing a Bible, bringing a friend, Bible memorization, and occasional good behavior or participation.

 

Wesleyan Kids For Missions - WKFM takes place on the last Sunday of the month in place of Sunday school. Kids will learn about different way to serve Jesus in their community, as well as nationally and globally. Each month we will take a special donation for the person/organization we are learning about, do an activity or craft we can donate, and bring in items as donations for their most-needed things.

 

Kidz Korner is part of our weekly bulletin. You will find an interactive worksheet put together by Pastor Kirk. Kids are encouraged to fill out during the service and turn in to him at the end of service for a prize!
