Encouraging children of all ages to know Jesus

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Hillside Kids

Our Children’s Ministry, Hillside Kids, encourages children of all ages to know Jesus. We are committed to teaching them God’s Word so that they will know who He is and the life and hope He offers us through Jesus. Our hope is that anytime a child visits Hillside Kids, they will experience a welcoming place, full of fun, while worshiping God and knowing Jesus more through His word and the relationships with friends and leaders. The only way we can get to these mattering things is through our first priority, that both the child and family know they are safe and secure in our care.

Hillside Kids offers age-level groups for children aged birth - 5th grade during all of our weekend services.

baby dedications

Parenting is not for the faint of heart. A lot of love, endurance, and support is needed as we disciple our children toward their own faith in God. Baby dedications provide an opportunity for the church community to praise God for their children and petition God for the grace to point their kiddos to Jesus. We offer Baby Dedications twice a year. Parents who are interested in participating in our next baby dedication ceremony, please click the button below.

Special Needs

Hillside has a heart to serve all children as well as love the whole family by providing support specific to each child’s individual needs. We do this through community and worship where everyone knows they belong.
