"CHILDREN ARE A HERITAGE FROM THE LORD..." - PSALM 127:3
Due to the current COVID19 pandemic and current restrictions in place, we have temporarily halted all of our in-person activities for our youth and children ministries. Online interactions are in place to keep them engaged with HPAC.
we want your kids to love church
That’s why HPAC is committed to creating a safe and fun environment where your children are taught about the Bible and Jesus through relevant, age-appropriate services. Our hope is to see a generation of children come to know God at an early age.
We understand that your children are the most precious thing that God has given you. We want you to feel completely comfortable and at ease while leaving your kids in our care. You are welcome to come into the classroom at any time to check on them during our services. We have medical personnel onsite who are also prepared to provide CPR should the need arise. Our staff is very friendly and will do their best to care for your child during your visit to our church!
LITTLE LAMBS NURSERY
Our Little Lambs Nursery is our children's program that we make available every service for infants and toddlers, infants to 3 years old. Our state-of-the-art nursery is available as a 'cry room' for new mothers with infants during all services. At least two, background-checked, Childcare Attendants are in the nursery at all times. They are available to check-in your toddler 30 minutes before each service. Our nursery offers all of the essential items needed for new mothers and young toddlers including the following: changing tables, diapers, wipes, a rocking char, couches, nursing covers, age-appropriate toys, safety mats on the floor and more. We offer snacks to during service times and fun group activities.
