Next Steps

We are compelled by our desire to tell the generations about the Lord and His mighty deeds.


We desire to be a welcoming place where children have fun, feel safe, and loved. We strive to come alongside families in their efforts to point their children to Christ. We believe all scripture is inspired by God and able to equip for every good work. We desire to build trust so we may share God's Word which is able to give them the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.


Hillside Kids is available on Sundays at 8:30, 10, and 11:30 am. Children in Kindergarten-5th grades may attend one session and attend worship with their families during the other session. Kids —three-years-old through fifth grade (during the school year) can also attend our Wednesday night program at 6:15 pm called G2 designed to be an extension of our weekend curriculum with a focus on discipleship (growth) and missions (go).


Safety and Security

Our goal is to ensure to the best of our ability, the safety, and security of our church members, beginning with our youngest and most vulnerable ones. We take every precaution possible and adhere to a three-fold approach to safety:  (1) worker training and screening, (2) on-site security personnel, and (3) secure child check-in system.  Furthermore, classroom doors have windows so that activities are visible from the hallways and video monitors observe activities around entrances and hallways.

Reducing the Risk (RTR) training is a mandatory qualification for every person working with children (birth through 5th grade) and students (6th through college) at Henderson Hills.  It is also required of all Ministries of Jesus Ministry volunteers.

Early childhood classrooms are staffed with two people at all times and are regularly monitored by supervisory staff. Before working with children, each volunteer leader and paid staff member is required to undergo a background check, interview, and reference check, as well as complete a 'Reducing the Risk' (RTR) training session.

RTR takes place on Wednesday Nights at 7:45 pm in Room HK-213

Upcoming RTR Training:
November 11, December 9
