Kids Ministry Director
Highland Kids is an exciting place for kids (Kindergarten - 6th Grade) to come and learn about God. Our goal is to give children many opportunities to explore God’s Word that they may see God and know His plan and purpose for their lives. Whether it is through our creative and meaningful lessons each Sunday morning in Kids Connection or our discipleship program on Wednesday nights at Kids Foundation, we desire to come alongside parents, to teach the truth found in the Bible.
Everything we do is designed to help children build relationships with their peers, leaders, but most importantly, a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We provide many opportunities for these relationships to develop through Sunday Morning programs, Wednesday night discipleship, camps, and special events. We encourage every child to be involved in all of these activities.

In Kids Foundation, we will equip kids with the Truth, empowering them to defend their faith as set apart followers of Jesus. We will partner with families to lay a strong foundation through Scripture, worship, and discipleship in fun and engaging ways.
Starting on September 1, Kids Foundation will meet on Wednesday nights at Highland from 6:30 to 8pm. Kids Foundation is open to kids 3 years old to kids in the sixth grade. Each age group will participate in large group teaching time, small group discipleship, worship, and games. There is a $10 cost for materials with scholarships available.
We will be needing people who love the Lord and want to share the Truth with children. Volunteers must submit to a background check.
We believe that families should worship together at one of the Gathering times which meet in the Life Center. Kids will gather for a time of learning each Sunday morning on the Kid’s Hall for Kids Connection/Connect 56 at 8:40 or 10 am. We encourage every child to be involved in Kids Connection/Connect 56.
Sundays mornings in the Kid’s Hall located on the 3rd floor of the Education Building. Kid's Connection uses “The Gospel Story for Kids” and "The Gospel Project" curriculums. Kids are taught how the Gospel of Jesus Christ weaves through every story in the Bible. These curriculums are a unique, three-year program that helps churches and families ground children in the Gospel story from Genesis to Revelation. At each age level, kids are taught the Gospel through age-appropriate illustrations, activities, coloring pages, object lessons, and memorization. There are weekly family-friendly devotionals that go along with the curriculum which is available for you to use at home.

Connect 56 at 10am introduces preteens to inductive study where they are taught how to investigate the Scriptures and discover for themselves what it means, apply it to their lives and defend their faith to others. We want preteens to study the Bible for God’s truth, instead of relying on teachers to tell them what is in the Bible.
We strive to provide a safe environment, both physically and emotionally, for all kids and families. One method is our electronic check-in system used on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. Check-in stations enable parents to quickly and easily check-in kids, and gives our staff a way to contact parents, if necessary, during the Gatherings. K-6th grade students will need to be checked in and picked up by an approved adult. A guardian receipt will be printed out at the time of check-in which is required to pick up your child from class.
We also require our leaders to go through a rigorous screening process in order to serve in Highland Kids. If you are interested in being a Highland Kids Leader, please Joanie Swingler.
This week we learned that Christ willingly gave up His life. The men who crucified Jesus did not force death upon Him. Instead, He willingly died that we might be saved. Because of this, we are to put off our old selves and live holy lives. We are to follow Christ’s obedience, not striking out on our own path.
