Welcome to KIDVENTURE, a ministry of Hillside Church for children birth through 5th grade. The KidVenture team looks forward to serving you in the days to come.    At KidVenture we realize the value of family and we desire to partner with parents and journey alongside them to raise kids who passionately live out their love for Jesus!  Our programs are built around doing just that.   

You will find that our safety screened KidVenture leaders care about building relationships with kids and their families so they can influence and model Biblical Truth to children.  We know that one to two hours a week or 65 hours a year is not enough for the KV team to do that, so we have built in resources and opportunities to come alongside parents to equip them to disciple their children at home. 

  Our KidVenture Values:

  • Relational Ministry:  Leading through small groups
  • Be Present:  Our leaders are consistent physically, emotionally, and spiritually
  • Creating a Safe Place:  Where kids feels valued and loved; free to ask questions and share doubts
  • Partnering with Parents:  Giving parents tools because they are the biggest influence in a child’s life.
  • Moving them Out:  Preparing kids to BE the church not just go to church.

KidVenture Programs:          Sunday Mornings at 8:45 and 10:30 am              

Early Childhood:  For Sunday, April 5th watch First Look Experience here!
                                        For Parent Guide:  Here
Our leaders in Early Childhood give small children their first glimpse of the Heavenly Father by helping them understand that Jesus Made Them, Jesus Loves Them and He wants to be their friend forever.  Check in your child in the Nursery (ages 0 to 24 months) or keep your child with you in the Cry Room located in the back of the Worship Center.  You may also check in your child in the 2 and 3 year old room or in the Lodge and your 4 and 5 year old children into Building D. 
             Elementary: For Sunday, April 5th watch 252 Experience here!
                                 For Parent Guide:  Here
Parents check in their children in the Lodge and take them to their Small Group room.  Our Small Group Leaders use interactive curriculum to help kids apply the Biblical truths.  Each month the children learn what the Bible says about a Life App (courage, gratitude, kindness, etc.).  They take home a God Time card each week with four days of devotions.  At the beginning of each month parents receive a Parent Cue Card which helps them follow up with what kids learned on Sunday with Drive Time, Bed Time and Meal Time activities or discussion questions.
Tuesday Nights: For Tuesday, March 17th watch Preteen Experience here!
 A night of discipleship for the entire family which includes Men’s Bible Study, Women’s Bible Study, Youth Group and Small Groups for kids 0 through 5th grade.  Kids K through 5th grade will be working through a notebook which reinforces our month Life App character traits.  The program for kids runs throughout the school year and children may join in at any time!
