The children's ministry at Harvestfield Church in Rainbow City provides a safe, fun environment where kids learn how to know and follow Jesus from caring leaders who are committed to advancing the gospel one child at a time.
At HFC Kids, every child has a place to belong and encounter the gospel! While kids of any age are always welcome to worship alongside their parents on Sundays and Wednesdays, HFC Kids provides weekly discipleship experiences and special events tailored to kids by age and grade level.
Every Sunday morning beginning at 10:30am, HFC Kids offers fun, Bible-focused, Christ-centered gatherings in welcoming, safe, age-specific environments. Infants and K1-K5 children gather in our preschool area where babies receive attentive care in our dedicated nursery while preschoolers enjoy music, coloring/crafts, creative play, a snack, and a Bible story in their own rooms. K-2nd grade children and 3rd-5th grade children gather in separate areas where they experience worship through song and fun, interactive Bible studies designed to help them engage the truths of God's Word on their level.
Here's what a typical Sunday morning looks like at HFC Kids:
Parents accompany their children to one of the check-in stations to sign them in, drop them off with our vetted team of caring adult leaders, and receive a numbered security tag.
As children arrive, they enjoy fun games and activities, share time together with their friends, and build relationships with their teachers.
Children are led in gospel-centered worship through song by talented live musicians.
Our teachers present a gospel-centered message from the Bible using the Gospel Light curriculum, which is designed to guide kids to a deeper understanding of Jesus through mentoring relationships with teachers and parents with a strong emphasis on evangelism and discipleship. Our curriculum is structured to take children through the Bible five times by the time they complete 5th grade.
Parents return to the check-in stations to present their security tag, pick up their children, and receive materials for at-home discipleship.
No worries! You won't feel like a newbie for very long. We're here to answer any questions you may have so that your first visit to Harvestfield Church and HFC Kids goes as smoothly as possible.
The HFC Kids wing is super easy to find. As you enter Harvestfield Church through the main entrance, just look to the left, and you'll see the HFC Kids logo on the wall. Walk down the hall to the left of our logo, and you'll find the preschool check-in station about midway down the hall and the main HFC Kids check-in station at the end of the hall. A member of our host team will be happy to walk along with you to show you the way, introduce you to our children's ministry leaders, and hold your diaper bag while you get your kiddos checked in.

Your child's safety and security is of the utmost importance to us! Here are some of the measures we've taken at Harvestfield Church to help ensure the well-being of your kids:
1) When you check in your child at HFC Kids, you'll receive a numbered security tag that identifies you as the parent/guardian of your child and that must be presented at check-out/pick-up in order to ensure that your child goes home only with you. 2) We require all children's ministry staff and volunteers to undergo a thorough criminal background check and training process before being allowed to supervise kids. 3) We require a minimum of two adults in every classroom. 4) The electrical outlets in the nursery and preschool rooms are all positioned out of your child's reach and equipped with plastic outlet covers. 5) Every classroom door has a viewing window to keep kids and leaders in sight at all times. 6) You will have an opportunity to communicate your child's allergies, dietary restrictions, special needs, etc. to our children's ministry staff and volunteers at check-in/drop-off. 7) Our trained security team keeps careful watch over the HFC Kids wing during all gatherings and special events.
