Children and Youth


“Our goal is to ignite a desire for a genuine relationship with Jesus within the hearts of children and youth, and to train and equip young disciples to live out their faith and bring glory to God.”
For current HCFKids information and events

The mission of HCF Little Kids is for children to know how much God loves them and to enjoy following God and being with His family! There is no better time to establish a foundation in Jesus than the first years of a child’s life.

New to HCF?

Let us help you get checked-in. 

On arrival you’ll find us ready to assist!

Each Sunday HCF Kids are checked in and assigned a ID Badge.  This disposable label includes the child’s name and code, as well as any allergy concerns.

The person checking them in is given a matching badge. The child may only be released to the person who possesses this tag.
