We are so excited to share with you what is going on with our kids here at Hardin. We hope that you not only feel welcome here, but that more importantly, you feel the Spirit of the Lord in our church.
Here are the commitments we emphasize in our Children’s & Preschool Ministry:
Commitment to the Safety of Your Child
Secure online check-in system powered by Kid Check. Read more about this system and register your child at www.kidcheck.com.
Teachers required to complete a Volunteer Orientation and a background check
Commitment to Help You as You Lead Your Child
Take home material reviewing the Sunday School Lesson & Memory Verse for the month
Handbooks to take home for Memory Verses on Wednesday nights
Commitment to Teaching Your Child About Our Lord & His Word
Bible lessons presented in a fun and memorable way that lift up our Lord emphasize that the Bible is God’s word to us.
Our preschoolers use North Point’s “My First Look” curriculum where kids learn: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend. Our children use North Point’s “252 Basics” curriculum where kids learn: I need to make the wise choice; I can trust God no matter what; I should treat others the way I want to be treated. In both the Preschool and Children’s classes, one key truth or virtue each month is taught through different Bible stories. Bible teaching is followed by fun activities that reinforce the lessons and give kids an opportunity to apply what they have learned.
The Barnyard and The Loft
Preschoolers will look forward to fun time in the play area known as “The Barnyard”. Climb over cows, slide down tractors, step into a huge barn, and more! Each class group will be on a rotation. Check with your child’s teacher for the exact time. Kindergarten through 5th Grade will enter “The Loft” for upbeat, rockin’ Worship through song followed by a dynamic Bible lesson. It’s a celebration every week! Kindergarten and 1st Grade Teachers will take their classes to the Loft #1. The 2nd through 5th Grade teachers will take their classes to the Loft #2. Check with your child’s teacher for the exact time.
To ensure security, parents or guardians must register their children. Registration is located on the first floor at the entrance coming from the church foyer. We also have a registration center located on the second floor.
