HARVEST KIDS

 

You need to be refilled

You need time to concentrate on what the Lord has to say about how you live. You need time to worship Him, and we want your children to do the same. Our desire as a ministry of Harvest Brantford is to come alongside parents and guardians to equip, support, and inspire them as the primary spiritual leader in the lives of their children.

Our role at Harvest Kids is to supplement the teaching supplied in the home with church-based programs, activities, teaching, and events in order to help children understand who God is and what Jesus has done for them.

We seek to lovingly evangelize and disciple your children toward faith in Jesus Christ, which will be the basis for a gospel-centered, Biblical worldview that will last for life. We provide a learning environment that supports the four pillars of Harvest Bible Chapel in a way that is engaging for children at various stages of physical, mental, social and spiritual development.

Our Harvest Kids ministry is for all children, ages birth through grade 5. It takes place during all weekend services.

 

Have peace of mind while you worship

You can leave your children with us, knowing that everyone who serves in Harvest Kids, from Nursery through Grade 5, has been screened and has had a background check.

 

What to Expect at Harvest Kids

Check-In

At check-in you’ll get printed name tags for your children and a parent receipt with a matching, randomly generated, 3 digit code. You’ll show this parent receipt to pick up your children at the end of the service. If your child needs you during the service, we will use this code to page you on the main screen in the worship centre.

If you are planning on attending for the first time, you can download this form and fill it out at home and bring it along with you to the Service, to save time before the service check-in.

 

Opening Activities 

After children are checked in, they head to their classrooms. They’ll meet up with their friends and class leaders and participate in some “warm up” activities prior to Large Group Worship and Teaching.

 

Worship

We love when children sing loud and dance during worship. We also love when they close their eyes and lift their hands and sing quietly. Both please the Lord and both forms of worship point to Jesus Christ as the King.

 

Teaching

Each week we open our Bibles and teach with authority in a manner that children can understand. Each week we show kids where they fit in God’s Big Story. We believe strongly that children should never be bored with the Bible, and we work hard to make sure that doesn’t happen.

 

Small Groups

The children experience a Harvest-style small group in an age appropriate format. Scripture memorization, prayer and fun, intentional activities are included to promote personal application of large group teaching.

 

Harvest VBS

Harvest VBS runs for a week in July each summer. It’s a week jam-packed with fun and adventure, with Jesus as our focus each day. Harvest VBS is for children in Kindergarten through Grade 5.
