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 to share God's Word, giving them the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
Hillside Kids is available on Sundays at 9 & 10:30 am. Children in Kindergarten-5th grades may attend one session and attend worship with their families during the other session. (Birth-Pre-K children may attend one or more sessions). Kids three years old through 5th 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 must undergo a background check, interview, and reference check and 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 in 2022: June 12 (Sunday 4 pm), July 13, August 13 (Saturday 11 am), September 14, October 12, November 9, and December 14.
Hillside Kids Harmony Choir
The Hillside Kids Harmony Choir for K-5th grades it meets Wednesdays from 5:30-6:15 pm in room HK-214.
Our desire is to inspire kids to worship Jesus by pointing them to the transforming power of the gospel. Hillside Kids love worship through singing, and we set aside time for it as a part of our normal schedule. As children engage, we have found that some develop a deep love of singing and a desire to help lead others. Our kids choir ministry will provide a place to cultivate those desires.
Although singing techniques will be taught, the bigger goal of Hillside Harmony Choir is to teach about what worship is, why we do it, and what it means to lead others in it. During each rehearsal there will be a special time to discuss Biblical principles on worship.

Parent Commitment Services
Every year, we give parents the opportunity to introduce their new babies or children to the church and to make public commitment before the church family to raise their children under God's direction and instruction. Parent Commitment is a two-part event with a Commitment Dinner and Parent Commitment Service. It occurs once a year in January.
We believe the church should be a place where everyone feels safe and welcome. If your child has any special needs that may require extra attention, we are happy to help them participate in our ministry! We have special needs ministry classes during the 9 and 10:30 am services for children who may be overwhelmed by bigger classes, as well as volunteers who can help your child attend class with their peers. For more information, contact Carrie Brooke.
