About Hilldale UMC KIDS

At Hilldale UMC our kids (infant through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and explorative way. 


Our nursery (infant through two) and PreK (three and four) is staffed by CPR certified caregivers from 8:30 am to noon. Everyone who works with children, youth, and at-risk adults must complete and pass our "Safe Sanctuaries" training as well as a national background check.


Children in elementary school begin by attending the worship service with their parents. About one-third of the way into the worship service we will have a "Children's Moment" with our Children's Director. After the "Children's Moment", our children leave the Sanctuary and head to Children's Church located in Heritage Hall below the Sanctuary.


Children’s Church is an intentional time where children receive the message in worship on their level with interactive activities, games and crafts at the 8:30 am and 11 am service. 


In between services we offer Sunday school for Prek, K through 2nd, and 3rd through 5th. As your child grows they can experience going through the Bible and building on their understanding of God, Faith in Jesus, the Church, and helping others.


YiTz (Youth in training) is a group for building relationships in our 3rd through 5th grade kids with service, fellowship, small groups, and fun. YiTz meets during the school year on certain Sundays from 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm. Contact our Children's Director for the schedule and more information.


We would love to meet you & your children when you visit Hilldale UMC!

Special Needs

Every child is precious and beloved by God. For those children who have special needs, from allergies to sensory sensitivities, we are ready to work with your family in providing a safe and engaging environment for your entire family to experience the Grace of God.


Contact our Children's Director through the form below and we would love to walk through your family's needs and how we can show your child the all encompassing love of God!

Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting Hilldale Kids for the first time:


First, we encourage all our new families to schedule a time with our Children's Director to tour our facility and feel 100% comfortable with where you child will be and who your child will be with. Remember, everyone who volunteers or works with our children, youth, or at-risk adults must pass our "Safe Sanctuaries" training as well as a national background check.


If you have a child infant through PreK, then you are welcome to bring them to worship with you. If you choose, you may also take them to the Nursery (downstairs), meet our Nursery staff, and make sure your child's snacks, binkies, boppies, pacies, nappies, and everything else are fully taken care of.


Next, bring your 5 year-old and older children to the Sanctuary for worship. After the Children's Moment, they will be invited to head to Children's Church for age-level appropriate and engaging activities in faith. On the 1st Sunday of the month, we have Holy Communion and children who attend worship are invited to stay in worship the whole time and there will not be Children's Church. You are welcome and encouraged to come downstairs to Children's Church with your child to meet the leaders, see the space, and feel 100% comfortable before they leave your presence.

Before Service: Check out our facilities, check-in your infant - PreK children in the Nursery if you so choose, and bring your 5 year-old and older children to the worship service.


During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, a staff person who greeted you in the Nursery or a Children's Church leader will find you in the Sanctuary.


After Service: After the service is complete, you can keep your infants - PreK children in the Nursery so you can attend Sunday School or Small Group. For children who attended Children's Church, proceed downstairs and we will show you where their Sunday School room is located.
