Children’s Ministry

Ministry Mission

Our mission: To help children discover and develop a living relationship with Jesus Christ by providing Christian education, spiritual guidance, and an understanding of the basic doctrine of our faith.  We will fulfill our mission by creating family ministries that promote parental and community involvement, encourage consistent communication, address challenging issues, and build Christian values so children “….will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”  Isaiah 40:31

Children With Special Needs

We believe God has given us a wonderful and unique opportunity to support families by providing a safe, loving, Christ-focused program for special needs children while parent(s) and siblings attend worship, Sunday School, and serve at Hickory Flat Church.  

Child Safety

We put children first. We believe that a church should be a safe place for all children and youth. We have developed guidelines, policies, and procedures to reduce the risk of child abuse in our family of faith and for reporting and responding to an allegation of abuse. We have a Safe Sanctuary policy in place and all volunteers and staff who work with children submit to a background check. We also use a computerized check in/out system to ensure the safety of children while they are on campus.
