Sunday Morning Services for All Ages
8:05 am / 9:30 am / 11:00 am
Our Sunday morning focus is worship.
At Heritage, we believe parents are the most important teachers in the life of their child. Children learn by watching and experiencing.
We also understand that the decision to include children in worship is up to the individual parent. To help parents in that transition time, we offer several opportunities for children.
Infants - 2 Years Old
Children are checked in through the age-level classroom
This is a simple praise and teaching time for our youngest worshippers. The children sit (around 6 months of age) in a seat at a table with other children and a teacher. It is a hands on learning and singing time. The hold a Bible and sing and look at pictures of Jesus. At times simple or seasonal crafts are done with the children.
3 Years Old - Kindergarten
Children can be checked into the classroom OR attend worship with their family and leave at the beginning of the sermon with the older children
Interactive worship time with traditional pre-school Sunday School songs. During the ‘sermon’ time children are taught to sit and quietly and listen to a Bible story for 3-5 minutes. At the end of worship and ‘sermon’ time, the children play games and do crafts related to the Bible story that they heard.
1st - 3rd Grades
Children sit with their family until they are dismissed at the beginning of the sermon
Children attend worship with their family, then at the beginning of the sermon time, children are dismissed to CC. Children hear Bible teachings and learn about our faith.
We ask that ALL children be checked into our computer check-in system. Parents are given a security parent-pickup tag that corresponds to the child’s tag.
Older children who were dismissed from the 8:05 & 11:00 services will are returned during the last song to the sanctuary. At the 9:30 service we ask that parents p/u children in the Backyard due to the congestion in the hallway between services)
4th & 5th graders are welcome to attend Children’s Church, the curriculum used is geared to 1st-3rd graders.If parents attend a discipleship class during one of the services, their children will sit with a Children’s Ministry staff/volunteer leader during that worship service.
