We offer a safe, fun environment for children to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our Children's Ministry serves 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. For more information, contact Pam Leskovac at pam@harlemroadchurch.org or at (740) 965-4543.

Friday Night Live (FNL)

Friday Night Live is a free community children’s program for children age 4 through 5th grade. FNL is usually held 6 times throughout the school year on the third Friday night of each month (September - November and February - April) 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 children. This program is staffed with 40 adult volunteers and several teen helpers.

We ask that parents bring their children in and sign them into the program at the beginning of the evening, and that parents come into the building and sign their children out at the end of the evening.


Summer Nights Live (SNL)

Summer Nights Live is a free community children’s program for children age 4 through 5th grade that is held 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 is also a fast-paced, fun-filled evening for children. Kate Steele is our Director and we are staffed with 30 adults and many teen helpers.

Summer Nights Live 2019 will be June 10, 11, and 12

Join us for "Maker Fun-Factory Created by God for a purpose!". SNL is a three-night event from 6:00-8:00. Registration is available in the church lobby or online https://kideventpro.lifeway.com/myChurch/?id=51308.

Children's Christmas Musical

One special event at HRC that takes place every Christmas season is the Children's Christmas Musical for children 4 years of age through 5th grade.
