The Children’s Ministry at The Church at Harpeth Heights is committed to partnering with the home to influence and equip families towards being the center of godly influence while providing safe, secure, and engaging group environments where the whole gospel of Jesus Christ is proclaimed through strong, biblical content.
We want children to value coming to church. Each week, your children will gather in either worship or groups. Learn more about what to expect on a Sunday morning below.
Sunday morning groups
Sunday | 9:15 – 10:15 AM
Each week, our children take a journey into Scripture. As we study through a book our goal is for them to see the Bible in a way that will make them want to dig deep and build a foundation for life. Our curriculum is LifeWay Christian Resources: The Gospel Project. Kids use object-based learning to help them explore the people, places, and objects of the Bible in historical context and compare them to modern-day life. Our goal is for kids to not just hear the Bible, but experience it!
In order to help build community within our children’s department, we all begin together and then split into small groups based on grade levels. We have a unique hangout area for tweens (5th graders) and understand that as they grow towards their teen years, their needs and learning styles grow as well.
worship – power up
Sunday | 10:50 – 11:45 AM
Our children’s worship is for Kindergarten – 3rd graders and begins in the middle of the main worship service time. We want families to begin worship time together. Parenting on the pew, singing together, and experiencing corporate worship is an important part of building strong faith families. However, we also recognize that sometimes children learn better in environments where they feel free to wiggle and participate in hands-on lessons. This is why right before the sermon, children in the younger grades are invited to join volunteers on the third floor for a unique kid-friendly worship time. Our curriculum is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. High energy, games, technology, and object lessons help us reach kids right where they are and model for them how we can worship God as we discover more about His word.
choir (fall semester)
Children’s Choir is more than just singing. Children learn how to worship God through songs, choreography, drama and weekly Bible stories with lessons, games, activities, and memory verses. All their lessons will help prepare them for a Christmas program to be presented to family and friends on the first Sunday of December.
Impact includes music, large group worship and Bible teaching, missions and more! Your children are transitioned seamlessly from music to worship and then their small groups. Learn more about what to expect on a Wednesday night below.
Winter and Spring Semesters
Every person is born with gifts, talents, and passions. During our Wednesday night Zip time, we strive to have children in God’s word, learning music about God, and discovering their gifts, talents, and passions. Every six weeks, children choose new tracks to develop new skills and learn about new gifts. Some of the tracks we have offered in the past include Painting, Duct Tape Creations, Woodworking, Indoor Games, Knitting, Drama, and Praise Band.

We ask that each Sunday morning you check your children in using our electronic check-in system. The computer will print two tags- one for you to place on the back of your child and the other to keep with you to present when you pick up the child. Each week the labels are printed with unique security codes and watermarks. The labels also help us to easily identify allergies, diet restrictions, and other special instructions.
Keeping Your Child Safe
When your student is on the campus of our church, his or her safety is our top priority. That’s why we work very hard to have plans in place in the event of an emergency, like a fire or tornado.
