Adventure Kids
Welcome to Adventure Kids!

Most people who confess to know Christ as their Savior did so as a child. Therefore, we believe that children are a critical part of the church. We know that these precious children are ready to hear and experience Jesus Christ through the teaching of His Word and the kindness of our volunteers. We are so excited that you are considering joining Adventure Kids this Sunday. We currently have kids ministry for both services. 

Nursery (birth-24 months*)
Our nursery is a place where children from birth to 23 months come to enjoy the loving care of our wonderful volunteers. We desire to encourage parents by nurturing their children. The nursery uses a digital check-in system to help provide security for your child and convenience for you.
*The 2 years in the nursery include children who will be 2 after October 1st.

We provide a variety of activities to our preschool children in order to begin building foundations for faith. During this special time of development, we engage the children with interactive Bible lessons, playtime, and snacks. The preschool uses a digital check-in system to help provide security for your child and convenience for you.

Elementary (1st - 6th Grade)

The elementary years are when many children make a profession of faith. Our desire is to stir their love of Christ through a greater understanding of Jesus and the Bible. This occurs through our kid’s worship time, called Blast Zone, at 10:30.

Coming Fall 2023

Team 56’s vision is to nurture a culture of love for Christ and his church in our 5th and 6th graders through community building, theological training, and spiritual development. 

Adventure Kids has a fun and challenging ministry just for the 5th and 6th graders of Heritage. We call it Team 56!

Some special events are community-building events and service projects. Team 56 will begin regular meetings in the fall of 2023 at 10:30 AM in the Senior High Room.

Wednesday Night Ministries


Awana is a special kids program that encourages Bible verses memorization, discussions about Jesus, and fun! Registration is required so that books and other items can be purchased.

Awana is available for 2 years old preschool kids to those in the 6th grade. It meets Wednesdays at 6:45pm during the school year.

Global Kids (Summer)

Global Kids is an exciting, missions-focused ministry for kids, held Wednesday nights during the summer. Our kids in preschool and kindergarten will hear stories about missionaries, and our 1st–5th graders will learn about different cultures around the world and how the good news of Jesus can be shared in these places today. Our 1st–5th graders will also be given opportunities to practice thinking beyond themselves as they learn the significance of the gospel for their own lives and its implications for those around them.
