Volunteers needed | SUNDAYs | 9:30 & 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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q - Can I work with my own child?
A - Absolutely! We love when parents get to serve and take part in developing their child’s spiritual wisdom and understanding!

Q - Do I have to get up and teach or act in skits in front of the whole room? What are some of the jobs you might need filled and what do they do?
A - Not if you don’t want to! We have various service positions available apart from leading Large Group such as Greeters, Hallway Administrators, Small Group Leaders, and Tech Facilitators!

Q - I’ve never worked with kids before. Can I just give it a try and quit if it doesn’t work out?
A - Definitely! We’re confident that even spending a little bit of time with our kids will make your realize that you probably already know all you’ll need to be great with our kids. Plus, we’ll have regular trainings to keep you updated on important techniques, policies, and procedures.

5th Sunday

On 5th Sundays, our 4th and 5th graders will not go to their normal Kids Ministry programming but will attend the main worship service with their families. This is to get them ready for Student Ministry, when they will attend the main worship service on a regular basis. We will have greeters looking out for them in the lobby and will have a page of sermon notes to give them to help them engage in the service.

Here are the upcoming 5th Sunday dates:
January 29, 2023
April 30, 2023
July 30, 2023
October 29, 2023
December 31, 2023

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 Jaclyn Olivas 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 9:30 & 11:00 AM.

Please contact Ferrin Gillespie for more information.
