Children's Ministry

We offer a safe, fun environment for children to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our Children's Ministry serves hundreds of children (from infants to fifth graders) over the course of the school year and during the summer. We connect our kids to Christ through Sunday School classes, Friday Night Live, Summer Nights Live, a Children's Christmas Musical, and many special events.

Friday Night Live
“Friday Night Live” is a free community children’s program for kids age 4 through 5th grade. FNL is usually held the third Friday night of each month (September through May) from 6:30-8:30pm. We start each evening together with dinner and then we break up into age groups and travel from ‘station’ to ‘station’ learning through all of our senses. We have a story station, a game station, a craft station – and all are geared at connecting kids to Christ. It is a fast-paced, fun-filled evening for more than 80 children. This program is staffed with 40 adult volunteers and several teen helpers.

Summer Nights Live
“Summer Nights Live” is a free community children’s program for kids age 4 through 5th grade that is held for one week – from 6:30pm-8:30pm – during the Summer (in June or July). SNL runs the same way our traditional FNL runs – only we don’t provide dinner during the summer event – and we add music to our evening. It, too, is a fast-paced, fun-filled evening for over 100 children. Mishelle Soule is the co-director along with Pam Leskovac and we are staffed with 30 adults and many teen helpers.

Kid's Christmas Musical
One special event at HRC that takes place every Christmas season is the Children's Christmas Musical. Rehearsals for the Christmas Musical typically begin in the fall.
