FAITH AT HOME  PRAYER  SUNDAY MORNING  AWANA  REVIVE  HIGH POINT CHRISTIAN SCHOOL 

Nurturing Faith at Home is #1

We believe that the task of raising the next generation to follow Jesus belongs primarily in the home.  High Point Church's children's ministry exists primarily to encourage, empower and equip parents to raise their children to follow Jesus. All of our Sunday morning & midweek programming is meant to supplement the Spiritual formation happening at home.  We also are always working to find resources that will help you to raise your children to follow Jesus.  Here are a few resources currently available:

- Homefront Weekly
 
This resource is a very simple tool for you to connect with your child about how Jesus relates to their lives. It's designed to work on any time budget, even if you only have one minute to chat with your kid!  It's perfect to do in the car or just before bedtime. Give it a try today! If it's been a helpful tool or we could improve it, please let me know!  Homefront Weekly is sent out via email; hard copies are also available when you pick your kids up on Sundays. Email  to be added to the list!
 
- Weekly Spiritual Conversation Starter Text Message

One easy way to lead your kids Spiritually is by making Spiritual conversations a regular part of your week.  To help facilitate we'd like to start sending parents a quick, weekly text message with a spiritual conversation starter for you and your kids!  

To opt in, email  with your cell phone number and carrier (AT&T, Sprint, etc.). There won't be any cost to you except that of receiving a text message; and if you have free texting, there won't be any charge at all! 
 
- Annual Parenting Class: Parenting Building Blocks 
 
Currently taught by  Ellen Flottmeyer | October 30-December 11 at 9am in Micah D

Raising a Godly family takes a strong foundation with strategic Christ-centered building blocks. This class will examine heart-based parenting strategies for fulfilling God's intent for families.

With gospel principles, we will explore the parent’s role of an ambassador, Godward focused authority, the importance of scripture for instruction and reproof, heart-oriented discipline, character development, and the role of mercy and grace in it all. [The class will incorporate Paul Tripp’s book Parenting and live DVD conference Getting to the Heart of Parenting.]

Come connect with other parents and learn or review how to apply these principles and strategies to your everyday parenting. This class is recommended for those entering the kid phase through parents with middle-schoolers.

Contact Ellen Flottmeyer at with any questions.

Prayer

People often talk about the "power of prayer". That phrase can be misleading. There's really no power in prayer, but there is great power in God and he responds when we reach out to Him in prayer. Because of how gracious and loving God is, prayer is our most effective strategy for the Spiritual growth of our children.  

Your kids' small group leaders would love to join with you in praying for your kids. If there's ever anything you would love to see God do in your child's life, please text or email our Interim Kids Ministry Director Vince Pierri.

 - 847-209-2201

Vince will pray and will also send the request on to your kids' small group leaders. The prayer request will stay confidential outside of Vince and your small group leaders as they join in prayer together.


 

Sunday Morning 

Your kids can worship God and learn about Jesus on Sunday mornings. Contact our Interim Kids Ministries Director, Vince Pierri at  with any questions.  

INFANT NURSERY // Infant - 12 Months

High Point Church offers tender loving care for the youngest attendees of our church during the 9:00 and 10:45 service. The infant nursery is for children not yet walking, and is staffed by trained adult volunteers.

Our infant nursery is equipped with the perfect necessities for little ones from swings to mobiles and strollers, toys and cribs. With an adult to infant ratio of 1:3, our babies enjoy the close, personal nurturing care they require. This also enables each of our adult volunteers to build meaningful relationships with each child and his/her family.

TODDLER NURSERY // Age 1 - Age 2

The toddler nursery is for “confident walkers” through age two. Parents can take great comfort knowing their child is receiving exceptional loving care in our toddler nursery. Our toddler nursery is equipped with the perfect mix of fine motor & gross motor toys as well as toys encouraging parallel play, cooperative play, and plenty of board books. Our adult to toddler ratio is 1:4 which enables each of our adult volunteers to build meaningful relationships with each child and his/her family. 
 
Children "graduate" to Sunday School classes for preschoolers in September if they are age two as of September 1.

EARLY CHILDHOOD // Age 2 - Pre-Kindergarten

We make Sunday morning a fun learning experience where kids are energized and fulfilled through Bible-based ministry. Our classes are designed to connect with kids through unique and relevant teaching methods including centers, music, and drama.

Ministry to each child comes to life through loving, trained volunteers who care deeply about helping each child grow in his or her faith. Our volunteers are committed to coming alongside your family to assist you in the spiritual formation of your child. A trained and dedicated teaching team brings Biblical truths to life each week in a hands-on multi-sensory approach to learning from God’s Word.

Early Childhood classes are available during both Worship Services at 9:00 a.m. & 10:45.

GRADE SCHOOL // Grades K - 5

At 9:00 AM, Kid's Celebration kicks off with vibrant worship. Trained teachers use creative teaching methods to present God's Biblical truth to elementary school-aged children in a relevant and engaging way.

After the large group teaching, the children break into small groups where the main thrust of the day's lesson is discussed. Small group shepherds help the children find tangible applications from God's Word to use in their everyday lives.

At 10:45 AM, children attending Kids Praise check in and join a color group that travels to three stations throughout the morning: Bible Boulevard (Bible Lesson), Memory Lane (Scripture Memory) & Creation Station (Learning Activity related to lesson).  

Both Kids Celebration and Kids Praise teach the same main idea from multiple angles.  We encourage parents to come to both services; stay for the main service during one hour & attend a class or serve the other hour.  Your kids will enjoy attending both services back to back.


 

Awana on Wednesday Evenings

Awana is a global ministry that helps parents and churches raise children to know, love and serve Christ. It is a Bible based children’s program that is centered on the Gospel and makes Scripture memorization fun.

 
Each Wednesday evening from 6:30-8pm, September through May, kids age 3-5th grade are invited to participate in our discipleship ministry. This fun and engaging evening includes exciting games, Bible verse memorization, as well as large and small group Biblically-based teaching. Kids from High Point Church and the broader community gather to grow deeper in their relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Club Descriptions:

Cubbies serves kids for the two years prior to age 5 kindergarten. Cubbies celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers (3 and 4 year olds) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.
 
Sparks is for age 5 kindergarteners, 1st and 2nd graders. Sparks ignites the curiosity of early elementary-age kids to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ.
