Children's Ministry

Ministry 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  

Join us in Sunday School! (All ages)

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. Hickory Flat Church wants you to know that your child is safe with our workers and volunteers.We believe that a church should be a safe place for all children and youth. We have leaders and teachers who are certified CPR and First Aid certified caregivers in each of the classroom areas. We have a Safe Sanctuary policy in place and all volunteers and staff who work with children submit to a background check and training. 

Service Opportunities For Children

Children learn to be servants by serving. During regular Sunday and Wednesday ministries, the children have many opportunities to serve through small mission projects. Vacation Bible School week always highlights a specific outreach mission opportunity.

 

You can always contact us with any other questions or ideas! We look forward to being in ministry with your children and family!
