BUILDING UP KIDS FOR CHRIST

HP Kids is a children’s ministry uniquely designed with your child in mind!

What is HP Kids?

Welcome to HP Kids where we believe in treating your kids the way Jesus would.  We focus on loving, teaching atmospheres in our weekend worship times and Wednesday evening discipleship programs.  No matter what your child’s age, we have excellent teachers ready to lead them in engaging activities and fun games while also presenting timeless, life-changing principles from God’s Word.

We would love to see you and your family visit HP Kids this Sunday.
Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!

How Check-In Works

You may check in your child at any available station. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag. After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen in the auditorium. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.

Special Environment

Mother's Room

Our Mother's room is available for moms with babies 12 weeks old and under. This is a "Moms Only" room for women with newborn babies to view the service in a more private and quiet environment.

The Ride Home

On your way home, be sure to ask your child questions like, "Did you have fun?" and "What did you learn today?" It's our goal that every child has a positive answer to these two questions, every week!

What We Value

Creative Bible Teaching

The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.

Relationships

We value children’s relationships within the small group setting as they relate to their leader and other kids in the group. As families commit to attending the same service each week, children are placed in a group of familiar faces where relationships can grow.

Age-Appropriateness

Our environments and lesson materials are created in a way your child will understand. We are so passionate about kids learning this way that we do not allow them into the service designed for adults and students 6th grade and older.

Safety

Every child’s name tag is matched to a parent-identification number, every volunteer is screened with an interview and federal background check, and every hallway is monitored by security personnel.

Fun!

Kids love fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus, including games, activities, singing, and live acting.

DO I NEED TO BE A MEMBER OF HIGHLAND PARK CHURCH TO DEDICATE MY BABY?

You do not need to be a member of Highland Park Church to have your child dedicated in a group or public ceremony at Highland Park. We do encourage parents to make sure they are calling Highland Park their home church. Why? In dedicating your child to God, you are stating that you are willing to partner with God and the church to raise your child in cooperation with God’s intentions. To partner with any church, a parent would be wise to decide if he or she agrees with its beliefs and vision, so they can be all-in in their partnership with the church.

BABY DEDICATIONS AT HIGHLAND BARK CHURCH:

• We ask parents to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

• We ask parents to be sure their beliefs line up with Highland Park Church’s Beliefs.

• We ask parents to be regular attenders of Highland Park Church’s weekend services.

• We ask parents to attend a baby dedication class.

• We ask parents who are living together and who are not married to take steps to acknowledge and surrender to God’s plan for their relationship before participating in a child dedication service.

We are open to having conversations with you on any of the above statements. If you are interested in dedicating your baby, contact Pastor Sarah Rodgers or call (863) 647-3518.

Thank you for your interest in baptism. All of our baptisms are scheduled for the last Sunday of each month. Please take a moment to fill out this form. We will contact you soon with details about your upcoming baptism. If you need immediate assistance, contact Pastor Sarah or Tyler.
