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.
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 5:40 pm-7:30 pm, from August to May – coinciding with the school year. If there is no school (cancelled for a Holiday or Weather, then there is no Awana or Family Meal).
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.
Upward Basketball and Cheerleading has an emphasis on character development, drills and game play and skills training.
