  • +Our Program

    In Harbor Kids, we strive to create a safe and fun environment for all children as we partner with parents to help kids find their way to Christ.

    Nursery: Birth through age 3
    Each child has the potential to learn more about God than most adults imagine! In the nursery, it is our hope and prayer that your child will begin to sense how much God loves them through being well-cared for and valued. It’s one of the ways we partner with you as parents in helping to build a foundation for your child to have a relationship with Jesus when they grow older. For the 2-year-olds in the nursery, we worship God through songs and then learn the Bible story of the day through a video from Kids Spring curriculum. Kids are then invited to color a picture that corresponds to the Bible story.

    Preschool: 3’s through Kindergarten
    Bible stories and songs in large group, as well as activities in small group time, are designed to give children ages 3, 4, 5, and Kindergarten the first impression of their loving heavenly Father. Through the use of Orange curriculum’s First Look program, they will learn the three main truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my forever friend.

    Elementary: Grades 1 through 5
    Kids in grades 1 through 5 learn how much God loves them no matter what and that He can be trusted. Utilizing The Gospel Project curriculum children spend time in two main areas. Large group is where music, prayer, and an innovative approach to teaching the Bible story are a part of this interactive time. In small group time, leaders will help guide your child into a deep relationship with Jesus, will help make the Bible story relevant to their lives, and will engage them in a variety of activities that appeal to different learning styles.

  • +Your First Visit & Child Registration

    At Harbor Kids we provide full programming at both our 9am and 11am services. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted at one of our kids check-in desks where we will have you complete a new registration form. We will enter the information into our check-in system and print your child a nametag with the correct information. Afterward, someone will show you to your child(rens) age-appropriate small group area and provide you with important information about Harbor Kids.

    After your first visit, parents are welcome to use one of the self-check-in stations by entering the phone number listed on your registration form.
