Children's departments

Below you will find a description of each department and location.

  • Nursing mother's room/Comfort Room

    Please avail yourself to the nursing mother's room located in the back of the sanctuary that is equipped with rockers, diaper changing table, low lighting, a view of the sanctuary and the intercom system.  We had you in mind as mother's of babies who really need to be filled up with God's word.  You will never miss a sermon and yet you still get to comfort your child as well as meet other mother's.  We also offer a ministry to mom's during the week with childcare called Mom2Mom. Email Valerie Fleming at outreach@harvestvalley.org.  Room is open for all services.

  • The cove

    Ages 0-New Walkers - 9am & 10:45am Sunday Services

    Located behind the sanctuary between the Nursing Mothers room and the Women's bathroom. This is a classroom with age appropriate toys, swings, rockers, changing table.  We keep in communication with you via our beeper system.  We will contact you as soon as the need may arise.  You are literally a few steps away from the sanctuary.  

  • the reef

    Strong Walkers-Kindergarten - 9am & 10:45am Sunday Services

    You will find these classes to the right of the sanctuary entrance, outside through the double wooden doors.  You will sign your children in and out at the entrance.  

  • surge kids

    1st-5th GRADES - 10:45am Sunday Children's Service

    Located in the far left of the church building.Kids come together for life lessons, music, worship, Bible stories, teams and competition. The Word of God is taught in an age appropriate way for children to understand. Kids Camp is also offered in the summer.  We will post the details as they come to us.  


Our Mission statement

We believe that children can be taught the same Word of God as adults if presented in such a way as to make it interesting and fun. We also believe that all the promises in God's Word such as Salvation, Baptism, Holy Spirit Power, HealingProsperity and Victory belong to the children.  We believe children are never to young to know God or to walk in daily relationship with Him.  We believe children can be witnesses and share the love of God with others and become a vital part of the body of Christ.

Security

All of our classes are staffed by teachers, parents, youth teachers and hired staff caregivers.  Each area of children's ministry is under the direction of our children's pastor, Tina Maxin.  Our staff has completed training and background screenings (only adults may be given background checks) in order to minister to your child.  Most are CPR certified in the area of infants, children and adults.

Baby dedications

Announced bi-annually

Children are a gift from God. Psalm 127:3 proclaims that "Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him." As believers we are called to recognize that children belong first and foremost to God. Because children belong to God and are given by grace as gifts to parents we would love to join you in dedicating yourself and your child to the Lord. If you are interested, please contact Valerie Fleming at outreach@harvestvalley.org.

we love Volunteers

Children are such a blessing to serve!  They are like sponges that soak up every ounce of love & kindness you give.  This ministry is built on volunteers who care.  If you are interested in serving in children's ministry please download this application by clicking on the word VOLUNTEER. We love to train those who take up the opportunities.  Any questions you may have, please ask Pastor Tina at her email - children@harvestvalley.org
