Children’s & Student Ministry
Our Kidz and HYP ministries include children and students ages 0–18, preschool through high school. In all these ministries, we have the same mission: to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered discipleship, gospel-centered community, and gospel-centered service.
A background check has been run on all of our volunteers that work with children. Every volunteer has also received training regarding child abuse prevention and Horizon’s Child Protection Policy.
Infants & Toddlers
Beginning with the wee ones from birth to preschool, we strive to show God’s love in the Kidz ministry so that mom and dad can enjoy Christ and encourage one another. We strive to create the first building blocks of a strong, gospel-centered foundation for our children. We sing, dance, and teach the Bible to your little ones.
(K4- 5th Grade)
In our elementary Kidz ministry, we work to continue building a strong, gospel-centered foundation for our children.
On Sunday mornings, we do this by taking our Kidz through the Gospel Project at 9 am. The children chronologically move through Scripture learning about God’s plan to rescue His children through Jesus Christ. By the time the students finish 5th grade, they will have a solid foundation and understanding of the whole of Scripture.
At 10 am, our corporate worship begins with the children sitting with their families. Just prior to the start of the sermon, the children are dismissed for Kidz Worship where they hear the same scripture the pastor is preaching on presented on a level that they can understand. This short lesson is accompanied by relevant skits, games, and songs.
The Bible is chock full of farming illustrations that paint how God grows his kingdom in our hearts. We weave these ideas into our lessons as we are Growing Kidz for God’s Kingdom. Our hope is to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children by creating environments, curriculum, and resources that center on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
At Horizon Youth Program (HYP), we are dedicated to loving students from 6th-12th grade well. We provide a welcoming, exciting, intentional, and biblically focused environment. All of our students gather together on Sunday mornings from 9:00-9:45 for fellowship and to eat donuts, drink coffee, and spend quality time in God’s Word. High school students meet on Sunday nights from 6:30-8:00 for a weekly Bible study and relationally driven small groups. Middle school students meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00 for our mid-week youth meeting and small groups. Whether your student is looking to get plugged into a close-knit community, enhance their knowledge of the Bible, or develop a deeper love for God, HYP is the place for them. We hope to see y’all there!
