OVERVIEW

KidSPACE is the children's ministry of Hilmar Covenant. We run a structured program with a curriculum to teach our kids about the Bible through a fun safe learning environment. KidSPACE is neither your typical Sunday school nor is it babysitting or childcare. Services include hands-on Bible activities, community building through small groups in our classrooms, and service projects kid-size.


What We Do:

At KidSPACE we strive to connect all children to Christ and to one another, to build them up in love through the gospel, and to serve locally and globally. 


Our Purpose:

To be a safe and inviting place for children, nursery through 5th grade, to come and LEARN about Jesus, EXPLORE their faith, and GROW with their families in their journeys with Jesus.

WHAT TO EXPECT

We are so excited that you are here to check out KidSPACE at HCC! We hope to answer any questions you have so that you know what to expect when you arrive at a service.


CHECK IN:


The KidSPACE check-in stations open 15 minutes prior to the service. You can easily find where you need to go...follow the big signs under the breezeway! For first time visitors, we have a Registration Card for you to fill out to register and check-in your children. We will gather basic contact information so that by the next time you come, check-in will be quick and easy.


We have a Coordinator available at each location available to connect you to our kids ministry and answer any questions you might have!


Upon check-in, parents and children will receive matching security badges. Each badge is assigned an image so that parents may be matched with their child upon pick-up and also texted if necessary.  


After completing the check-in process for Little Kids (infants up to 3 years old), your child can be dropped off in the nursery/preschool area in the Family Center. Be sure to label any of your child’s belongings! After the service, you can pick up your child and belongings in the family center preschool room. (They are still starting in the service with all the kids)


After the check-in process for Bigger Kids (Children ages 3 to 5th grade), children will go with you into the service. They are dismissed to their KidSPACE classes after worship. When service concludes, you can pick up your child right up the stairs by presenting your matching security badge.

what we do

During our services, kids are presented with exciting worship, a lesson from the Bible, engaging small groups, fun games, and meaningful activities where they can build relationships with one another and learn more about God. It is our priority to teach kids things that can be applied at home. We are committed to providing parents with tools so that they can continue what kids learn on the weekends at church throughout the week at home! 


Littlest Kids (babies - 36 months)

The littlest ones of KidSPACE are important to us! Our volunteers are loving people who will provide a well-supervised and engaging environment for your child. We believe that even babies can learn how much God loves them! Our hour with them is packed with a time of worship, an engaging lesson, and yes, even an activity or craft that your little on can do! Our Nursery/Preschool is located in the Family Center (follow the signs) and the check-in station opens 15 minutes prior to service. Upon check-in, you will receive a security badge. When service concludes, you can pick up your child at their class by presenting your matching security badge.


Junior KidSPACE (3-5 years old)

Our KidSPACE program for this amazing age group provides an environment where your kids will learn about God through stories in the Bible, games, and crafts that they can bring home! In each lesson, we seek to communicate three key phrases that we believe are important foundations. We teach them: God made me, God loves me, Jesus wants to be my friend forever. The KidSPACE check-in table in the main building opens 15 minutes prior to the service. Upon check-in, you will receive a security badge. After completing the check-in process, your children will go with you to the service. They are dismissed to KidSPACE shortly after. When service concludes, you can pick up your child at their class, up the main stairs, by presenting your matching security badge.


KidSPACE Kids (kinder - 5th grade)

Our elementary environment includes interactive worship, a Bible story presentation, activities, games, and small group time with a consistent leader. Each month, we focus on a virtue based on a Biblical principle. In each lesson, we seek to help kids understand three key principles: I need to make wise choices, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated. The KidSPACE check-in table in the main building opens 15 minutes prior to the service. Upon check-in, you will receive a security badge. After completing the check-in process, your children will go with you to the service. They will be dismissed shortly after. When service concludes, you can pick up your child at their class, directly up the main stairs, by presenting your matching security badge.
