What is hayworth kids?
Children's ministry can be messy, crazy, silly, thought-provoking, and challenging. Kids are creative and love to ask questions. They love to run and be active, and the crazier the game, the better. At Hayworth Wesleyan Church, we strive to create an environment for kids to encounter Jesus at a personal level in a safe and creative environment. Throughout the week, there are a variety of activities just for kids where they can learn about the Bible, start and deepen their relationships with Jesus, and build friendships with one another.
SUNDAY mornings provide space for the entire family to come and worship. Beginning at 9:45am, there are Sunday school classes for all ages to experience Jesus at age appropriate levels. After Sunday school, nursery and preschool aged kids stay in their classrooms through the remainder of the 10:45am worship service, but kids ages kindergarten through 5th grade enter into the sanctuary (can sit together at the front or with their families). Grade school kids join the corporate church for the first part of morning worship and are later dismissed to children's church for an age appropriate lesson. Kids stay in the first part of the worship service because we believe it is important for the kids to stay connected with the rest of the church, but we also recognize the need for a special space for kids to discover Jesus for themselves.
WEDNESDAY evenings, Hayworth Kids meet from 6:45 to 8pm for AWANA. AWANA is a Bible study based program where the kids are equipped with practical tools to be world changers for Jesus. During AWANA, kids learn different Bible stories and are encouraged to memorize Bible verses, all while interacting in fun environment!
