Children's Ministry

Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Loving Nurseries

At Hillside Baptist Church, we are committed to providing loving and caring nurseries for each child that God gives us.  Our care givers are hand selected to ensure quality care for our babies.  The nursery is located near the Sanctuary in case there is a need for the mother, and we provide a quiet room for any mother who wishes to be in services, but also needs to care for their child. No matter your child's age level, we work hard to provide for their needs while they are entrusted to our care.  

Toddlers

At Hillside, The "Terrible Twos" are the Terrific Twos!  We love kids at every age!  We work hard to teach these precious gifts God's Word in a fun and exciting way.  Each week they learn from God's Word, have an activity, and learn to apply God's Word during play time on the playground outside or inside in their classroom.  The Toddler Class is offered for every service at Hillside Baptist Church.  Bring your child to make new friends and grow in God's Word to the 2's and 3's Class just outside the Sanctuary. 

Kindergarten

What an exciting age, so full of discovery, fun, and messes!  Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarteners will find a fun and exciting home for them at Hillside.  The class is located just off of the Sanctuary, and has access to the small playground area.  We spend time teaching these terrific students all about Jesus who died for them and pray that each one will accept Christ as their Saviour!

1st and 2nd Grades

Games, excitement, learning, crafts and songs are just a few words that describe the Primaries Sunday school class at Hillside Baptist Church. During this critical age range, children's ability to memorize Bible verses and to comprehend more significant truths from the Bible really accelerates. Each Sunday morning at 10 am, Mrs. Andrea Stark teaches these students all about God's Word.  They meet in the Sunday School Wing Room B2.

3rd and 4th Grades

Third and fourth graders will experience classes and a Junior church service that is as full of energy, excitement, and hope as they are. They will learn powerful truths from the Bible that will stick with them for the rest of their lives. They will memorize Scripture, participate in games, and make great friends.  Cory and Bethany Lavallee help to develop these young boys and girls each Sunday Morning at 10 am.  They meet in the Sunday School Wing Room B3.

5th & 6th Grades

The preteen's classes, services and activities create an unforgettable life-building experience through the big ideas in God's Word, the Bible. Each week preteens will enjoy engaging classes with activities, games, and memorable lessons. On Sundays, during the 11:00 hour they combine for an energetic "Junior Church" for all students 1st–6th grade.  Travis and Rebekah Pentecost happily host these energetic students every Sunday at 10 am in the Sunday School Wing Room B4.

Special Needs Ministry

We care deeply about families whose members have special needs. It is our desire that you would find a safe and welcoming environment for all members of your family. Because there are many types of special needs, from developmental, to physical, to emotional, we are prepared to work with you on how to best serve your family. We want all children to learn about God's love for them and the special gift He has given them through His Son.
