Adventure Kids

Preparing Kids for a Journey with Jesus! 

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. 

All kids ministry classes are now open for both services.

    Welcome to Adventure Kids!

    In Adventure Kids, we are dedicated to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for the children at Heritage. All volunteers undergo background checks, and we monitor rooms and hallways throughout the church.  If you have questions about our kids ministry please email us at kids@hbclynchburg.com.

    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 Sunday School classes at 9:00 am and our kid’s worship time, called Blast Zone, at 10:30 am.

    Team 56

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

    The goals of Team 56 are to:
    1. Encourage active church attendance and participation
    2. Provide a vehicle for leaders to connect with the 5th and 6th graders
    3. Give 5th and 6th graders an opportunity to build community among themselves
