Infant & Preschool

For children ages 2 months to pre-k

Our goal is to spark wonder in your child about who God is and why He loves them so much. We provide a loving nursery program during Worship Services on Sunday mornings. We also provide childcare for children ages 2 months to 12 years during some of The Harbor's events. Reservations are required in advance for all childcare except Sunday morning services.

Please contact Kelsey Matt for more information.

Kindergarten through 5th grade

We genuinely believe the combined influence of church and family can make a difference in the hearts of children as they grow in their understanding of Biblical principles and discover what Jesus means to them. Sunday morning Elementary services are at 9:00 & 11:00 AM.

Please contact Ferrin Gillespie for more information.

Volunteers needed | SUNDAYs | 9:00 & 11:00 AM  

Did you know that it takes 60 volunteers and staff members each Sunday to staff our children’s ministry? To fill this need, The Harbor Kid's Ministry invites you to join us in making eternal impacts for the kingdom and have a ton of fun while doing it! Serve with us on Sunday mornings! We need people over the age of 14 who know Jesus and are willing to hang out with our kiddos for a bit on Sunday mornings! We have various service positions open and available, and we'll find one that fits your God-given talents and gifting. Whether you can commit to one Sunday or 100 Sundays, we want you on the team!
