CK's Purpose


CK's Purpose


The HCC Children’s Ministry is called “Community Kids” (CK). We are a "community of children who love Jesus, ourselves and others." There are 3 core areas of CK - Nursery, Pre-K and Elementary. It is our goal at HCC to teach your child about Jesus in a manner that is clear, understandable, and fun.

Nursery


Nursery


Children are precious at HCC. We take care of our “littlest” Heritage members (children ages 2 and under) in our three nursery rooms. They will be cared for by nurturing volunteers who love children and a team of nursery Room Mothers who have a special gift for ministering to babies and toddlers.

On your first visit to HCC, please let the nursery attendant know it's your first time, and he/she will be sure to explain everything you need to know, including registration, our check-in system, and more. We look forward to seeing you and your little one this week.

Nursery Availability  |  Sunday Mornings: Opens at 8:45am and closes after 11am service (or 12:30pm)

Wednesday Evenings: Opens at 6:45pm and closes at 8:30pm


NURSERY FACILITIES

PURPLE Room Nursery  |  This room was created especially for babies and early walkers. 


ORANGE Room Nursery  |  This room is designed for toddlers who are on the move! When your child turns 3 years old, he/she will move up to Pre-K (with a group of peers) on one of two Nursery Move Up Dates (either in September or March of the current school year).


Parents’ Room  |  This room is for parents and their little ones who, for one reason or another, will not stay in the nursery for a particular week. It's a safe place where parents and their small children can go together and watch the service via live-feed.

The GREEN classroom is the perfect place for our dear 3 year olds. The GREEN classroom is the first classroom on preschool path. Your child is registered in GREEN for the entire CK year (September 2017-August 2018) if he/she was 3 years old on September 1, 2017. The first Sunday of March 2018, our toddlers who turn 3 years old between September 2, 2017-March 2018 will move to the GREEN classroom.

 

The BLUE classroom is special for our preschoolers! The BLUE classroom is the second classroom on preschool path – it’s the ideal space for 4-year olds. Your child is registered in BLUE for the entire CK year (September 2017-August 2018) if he/she was 4 years old on September 1, 2017 or 5 years old and not in Kindergarten. (Note: For the 2017-18 CK year, the BLUE ROOM will be open at the 11am service only. Children assigned to the BLUE ROOM who attend the 9am service will combine in the Yellow Room with the Kindergarten class.)

 

The YELLOW classroom is perfect for our fantastic Kindergartners. It is the third room on preschool path – loads of happiness and smiles occur in this cheery room. Your child is registered in YELLOW for the entire CK year (September 2017-August 2018) if he/she is in Kindergarten this school year.

Elementary


Elementary


Welcome to HCC’s Elementary Stop for 1st through 6th graders. It’s a great place to grown and learn. We have implemented a “Motivation Rotation” at HCC. Our elementary ministry tailors to all styles of learners - so the children rotate to various classrooms throughout the month while studying one major theme of the month. Our classes are taught by special teachers who love sharing Jesus with our children.


Celebration Sunday  |  On the fourth week of the month, we call it "Celebration Sunday," children remain in the CK Chapel for the duration of the service for Children's Church. This is the day we celebrate all we've learned that month while bringing excitement and energy to the day.
