Highland Kids:
Birth-6th Grade

What We're About

We want to come alongside you to teach your children to know and love Jesus. Find out more about our Early Childhood, Elementary, and 5th and 6th Grade Ministries below. Tips and resources for your family are being shared on our Early Childhood, Elementary, and 5th & 6th Grade Ministry Instagram accounts.

Early Childhood
Birth-K

The Early Childhood ministry will grow your child’s understanding of God’s love through their interactions with caregivers, Bible stories, songs, and age-appropriate activities

Sunday Mornings 

Sunday Classes are available through EC Live, our engaging online platform that includes worship videos, scripturally-based teaching videos, and at home questions and activity ideas to help bring the Bible stories to life in a developmentally fun and appropriate way.

Once we are able to be back together at HP Pres, we will continue to offer EC Live online as well as the same curriculum in person so all Early Childhood families are learning the same truths together.

Mid-Week

During the week, keep your eyes on our Early Childhood Instagram page where you will find our Monday Memory Verse, a weekly verse for your family to learn and explore together, and our Friday Story Time, a brief story time led by our Early Childhood team that includes a collection of Bible Stories and favorite children’s books.

Elementary Ministry
1st-4th Grade

The Elementary ministry is a place that teaches kids God's love in a way that helps their faith become real and their own.

Sunday classes are available through HK Live. Our team has created special lessons that includes worship songs to sing along with, engaging & inspiring lessons, and activities for the kids. We hope to connect with kids and families on a weekly basis as we move forward during this unique time. You can always re-watch the broadcast, but we have unique opportunities for our live audience.
