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  
 
Upcoming Events:
 
Dec 24th:  Christmas Eve Services (children’s worship bags will be available to use and take home after the service)

Sweetheart Soiree

January 24, 5:30-7p (Fellowship Hall): Bring your sweetheart and join us for a night of dancing and desserts!  Each child will receive a flower and a Winter Wonderland will be set up for pictures in the Gathering Area. Remember to bring your camera!

$15 per couple ($5 per additional sibling). Payments can be made with cash or check to HFUMC (memo: dance) and turned in to Nichole Hall or Darla Hansen’s office. Forms are located on the Welcome Desk. All proceeds will go towards our 4th/5th grade retreat.

 

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 all children. We have been given different talents and gifts and we believe everyone should be included and accepted in all classes and activities.

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.
