Welcome to Mars Hill Kids
Mars Hill Kids exists to teach kids the way of Jesus. We believe that God has revealed himself through history and is working within history to fulfill his purposes for all creation. The Bible tells the story of God’s work in the world. Each week, we gather to explore this story and invite our kids to enter into it: following the way of Jesus and joining the work that God is doing in the world.
Our programs for newborns through fourth grade meet on Sundays during the 9am + 11am Gathering times.
Babies [newborns thru toddlers]
In Babies, our goal is simple—that your child will begin to learn and understand that God loves them. How do we do that? Through the care of committed volunteers, as well as activity and story times that reinforce the Bible story of the month. These early encounters let each child know they are valued and begin to build a foundation for a relationship with God.
Preschool [ages 2-young 5’s]
Preschool provides purposeful connections where kids discover that they belong to God, Jesus loves them, and he has a job for them to do. Each week in Preschool, caring volunteers lead our 2-year-olds through young 5’s in worship, a Bible story, and a key concept that ties the morning together.
Elementary [Kindergarten thru 4th Grade]
Each Sunday in Elementary our children connect with a caring volunteer and other kids their age to sing and worship God, hear a creative Bible story, and discuss that story in their small group. In these teaching environments, kids learn that their identity is in Christ, they have belonging in the church, and a role to play in God’s mission.
Special Needs Program [birth-adult]
Sundays in our Special Needs classroom include worship, Bible stories/study, and time spent with caring volunteers. In our Children’s room, kids between age two and sixth grade experience worship, Bible stories, and teaching in Preschool, then are led through a story and small, adapted lesson with our Special Needs volunteers. In our Young Adult/Adult room, those in seventh grade and older join our community for worship in the Shed, and experience curriculum together, being led by volunteers through a Bible study time.
