Children and Family Ministries

HOL kids reading from the podium.Our Mission

Heart of Longmont strives to enrich children with a strong foundation in the teachings of Jesus. We are an open and reconciling congregation and reinforce values of care, generosity, understanding and love to all people.

All teachers, nursery staff and volunteers are required to pass state and national background checks, a Safe Gatherings course and are trained to adhere to our Safe Sanctuaries Policy.

During the summer Sunday Kids will meet only once a month for a special project. This year’s theme centers on building. Join us on July 12th at 9:00 to build a kite and August 13th for a special activity. Regular Sunday School will resume with a kick off on August 14 to build backpacks for the Wild Plum preschoolers.

We welcome infants and children in the HOL kids performing a play for the congregation.sanctuary during the worship service. We also offer nursery during special church events. Nursery is available for children birth to age 5. All snacks are nut free. Our nursery staff follows a strict cleaning and sanitizing schedule for the health and safety of all.

Sunday Kids is offered from 9:00 a.m. to 9:50 a.m. for children 5 through 5th grade. Lessons include art, music, games and drama based on a selected Bible verse. Often the Bible verse is the same as the scripture reading in church. Parents have the opportunity to discuss the verse with their children and relate it to their family values after church.

Children are invited to attend church with their family. Activity bags are available at the entrance to the sanctuary for children to work on during the service. Children are invited to go to the front of the church for a Children’s Time to hear a Bible story preceding the sermon.
