Why do we meet every Sunday?
The Gospel is at the center of why we meet. The Gospel is simply the good news of the saving life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This good news saves us from our sins and creates us into a new gospel family. Simply said, salvation is a community creating event. In Christ, we are united into one family, diverse in age and race, yet unified by grace and bound together as God’s people. The greatest expression of this reality is found in the local church–a community formed by the gospel which reflects the unity of Christ in loving relationships.
How do my children check-in for Hill City Kids?
Sunday mornings begin at the HCK check-in center in the lobby, where children from infants to 5th grade will get a name tag, while parents get a matching security code label that will be used for child pick-up at the conclusion of the service. Children are then able to be taken to their classrooms.
What is the Hill City Kids Curriculum?
We are currently teaching the Word of God through LifeWay's the Gospel Project for Kids, which walks kids from Genesis to Revelation and unfolds God's rescue plan for humanity, the gospel of Jesus Christ! Kids can expect to hear the Bible read, watch creative videos that retell the Bible stories, and be engaged through games, activities, and crafts that reinforce the gospel message. We also pray for one another, play and sing with friends, and enjoy a snack together (allergy safe), which is just our way of saying a sweet good-bye. Parents are also equipped with a mid-week devotional to take home to share with their kids.
What are the steps taken to ensure safety for the children?
Our desire is to create a safe environment for the children in our church to be engaged with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Rest assured that every volunteer working with The Hill City Kidz has completed a live scan background check and harassment awareness training.
All classrooms are equipped with first aid kits, and sensitive to the needs of children with allergies. Additionally, volunteers are members and actively involved in
community group life.
Once children are settled in class, parents are to return to main building until service is over, unless contacted by a teacher.
