Welcome to the City!

We are so glad you are interested in children and families.  We seek to create a safe, fun environment for children so that they can learn and grow in Jesus and so that parents and guardians can have peace of mind while they learn and grow themselves, Scroll down to check out everything we have to offer children and families!

When you arrive at our building, whether on Sunday or Wednesday, you'll most likely enter the doorway underneath the green canopy. To find our children's check-in desk, please turn left and proceed into the large white room. You'll see a sign for "The City" children's ministry and a desk with computers on it. One of our trained check-in representatives will greet you and walk you through the process and explain where your child will be and how to retrieve your child at the end of service. Our teachers and leaders would love to meet you, so please feel welcome to walk with your child to their area.

Uptown, our nursery and preschool areas, are on the upper level of the children's area. Elementary ages will head Downtown, down the stairs, just past the check-in desk to their large group area. We want you to have peace of mind while you worship, so rest assured that our skilled volunteers are trained to give your child a safe, fun experience while learning about Jesus' amazing love.

Whether your child is nursery age, preschool age, elementary age, or preteen age, HVCC is looking forward to meeting your family and celebrating milestones with you. Your child is our priority as we seek to constantly provide excellence as we learn, worship, play, and grow together in Jesus!

    There's something big going on. And each clue leads to the next... 

Nursery and Preschool

We provide nursery care for your infants from 8:30am-11:45am on Sunday mornings and 6:30-7:30pm on Wednesday Nights during the school year. We do so much more for out little ones than just watch them, through specially designed songs and activities nursery-age children begin learning that Jesus loves them and made them special! Please contact the children's minister for questions about nursery care provided during a special event! alex.henderson@hvcconline.com

Our Preschoolers meet in Uptown of our Children's area during the 8:30am-11:45am hours on Sunday Mornings, and 6:30-7:30PM on Wednesday Nights during the school year. Through song, play, and stories, Preschoolers will learn that God loves them and that Jesus wants them to love others. 

Elementary and Preteens

Through worship, instruction, and fellowship, our dedicated volunteers show elementary-age children that God loves them and wants them to be His friends. These volunteers also teach them what this relationship means and how they can share that relationship with others. 

We seek to create a safe environment where children can experience Jesus' love through the Bible, singing, volunteers, and the lessons each Sunday. Be sure to stop by our check-in station in the Fellowship Hall if you have any questions! 

Come and join the adventure each Sunday morning from 8:30am-11:45am and on Wednesday Nights during the school year from 6:30-7:30pm! 

The 5th and 6th grade are important periods in a student's development, especially when it comes to faith. Our preteen ministry, combines trained, encouraging leaders with specifically designed lessons and activities to engage preteens.

This group meets on Sunday Mornings at 9:45am and Wednesday Nights at 6:30pm. We also take some exciting trips in the spring and Fall, along with great summer activities, including a mission trip!

Parent Resources

This is a page dedicated to giving parents resources that can help them in their daily lives. I have heard that being a parent just "comes to you" when a child is born, and yet so many parents still have questions after years of experience. We see in the Bible that seeking wisdom from others not only benefits ourselves, but also our children. We hope that these resources will help to continually focus and inspire your parenting.
