The Branches

The Children's Ministry of Highlands takes its theme from John 15, "I am the Vine; you are the branches." This year, we will focus on the verse, "For apart from Me, you can do nothing," stressing our dependency on Christ.

Highlands strives to give the children a firm foundation in our faith through Sunday School, Wednesday night activities, and Special Events. Currently there are approximately 120 children enrolled in our program with 50 in the nursery and 70 in K-4 through 5th grade. Each week our teachers have the opportunity to touch these young lives for Jesus and to draw them into the kingdom. Our goal is to work alongside you as parents and assist you in training your children in the ways of the Lord.

Our prayer for our children is this — “Lord, grow them up not only physically but spiritually, mentally, and relationally into complete men and women of God, just as Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.”
