Children's ministry

Our Children's ministry incorporates AWANA, Children's Church, Kid's Praise, Vacation Bible School (VBS), fun events, and mission projects in order to engage the children with the gospel at an early age. 

The purpose of this ministry is to provide children with the knowledge of God, His Word, and to share with them the blessings that come from loving and serving God.

This is developed through Bible stories, Scripture memorization, music, crafts, and mission projects. The Bible is filled with stories of people who have had struggles similar to the struggles our children are facing, or will face, as they mature. By "hiding" the Word of God in their hearts, and through Biblical accounts, children can begin to see God's goodness, faithfulness, love, and guidance. 

The knowledge of Him provides them a foundation to make right choices. This in turn will teach them that life is best lived when they are in obedience to God. 


AWANA is an acronym for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” which is based on 2 Timothy 2:15. Our desire as AWANA leaders is to help parents raise their children to know, love, and serve Christ.  

The AWANA ministry teaches children the word of God through memorizing scripture, council time (lesson), and fun game time. Snack is also provided.

The AWANA ministry embraces five principles:

  1. The Gospel
  2. Scripture memorization
  3. Game time and theme nights (See Calendar)
  4. Training to serve
  5. Volunteer leadership

Hickory Road's nursery ministry is dedicated to providing a loving, safe, nurturing environment for the children of our members and visitors. Our purpose is to provide care for these young children (birth through three years old) so their parents/guardians will be able to focus on worshiping God and connecting with the body of HRBC during services and events.
