Welcome to our Children’s Ministry!
Hillcrest seeks to create an environment that teaches our children the truth about God and His word. Our Preschool is fully staffed for all services which includes a children’s church during the Sunday morning worship service from 10:30 to 11:30 am. All children’s classes are divided by age group for Sunday School. We offer bus rides for children who are at least four years of age, through sixth grade.
*Back to School Bash
Join us on Wednesday, August 8, from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Boswell Aquatic Center as we have an end of summer pool party. We would love to see all our kids from Vacation Bible School, Sports Crusaders Camp and Awana. Come have a great time before school begins. Admission is free!
We offer Sunday school classes for children age three and up to sixth grade. We encourage the children to “grow and become strong, full of wisdom and the grace of God” Luke 2:40 just like Jesus did as a child.
Wednesdays 5:55 pm-7:30 pm
What is Awana?
Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him.
Vacation Bible School
One of the highlights of our Children’s ministry is Vacation Bible School. What a great time to learn about Christ, have a lot of fun, and hang out with kids your age. Details can be found in information hallway. We welcome children ages 4 through those going into 6th grade.
The Upward Basketball program was developed to promote the discovery of Jesus through sports. This program is part of Upward Sports.

Sports Crusaders Camps
Sports Crusader Camps offer skill-enhancing sporting endeavors. You will find:
- Stretching—we don’t want any injuries!
- Skill time—breakdown the fundamentals of the skill of the day.
- Half-time—time set aside to instruct the kids on improving as an athlete and as a Christian.
- Skills Enhancement—drills that implement the skill of the day.
- Games—we don’t keep score, but we do keep “Big Dog” points!
Our camp runs Monday through Friday. The sessions usually run 2 ½ hours a day. Camps are led by trained college age Christian athletes. The camp will be for Grades K-3 in the morning and Grades 4-6 in the afternoon.
