Jesus loves kids and so do we! We serve kids and their caretakers by helping them discover the difference Jesus makes in all of life.
We believe building a strong foundation begins with saturating the gospel in every moment we spend with your kids. From singing with their families in the service, to hearing lessons in age-appropriate classrooms, we saturate each and every moment in Hallows Kids with gospel truths.
We love to nurture young disciples in their faith. Thoughtfully planned lessons, safe and clean classrooms and a mindful kids ministry team—we believe these elements provide an environment of spiritual formation and personal faith.
We believe parents and caregivers are the primary faith influencers in a child’s life. They make the most impact on a child’s spiritual formation. But the church has been given the amazing opportunity to partner with parents in making disciples.
We also believe that in order for the gospel to be central in a child’s life, it should be demonstrated through friendships. That is why our Hallows Kids emphasizes relational bonds to foster friendship within each class.
Hallows Kids rooms are grouped by age to ensure children have fun, feel safe and are engaged with age-appropriate activities and teaching. We use a combination of Gospel Project curriculum and New City Catechism to creatively engage preschool through elementary-aged children and to empower parents with additional take-home resources.
Resources & discipleship opportunities
Family Worship Guide (Provided Weekly in lieu of Kids Ministry on Sundays)
While our church is adhering to the social-distancing measures to love our neighbors and help slow the spread of COVID-19, we would like to equip parents and care-givers to lead their own time of family worship at home. We hope you enjoy these Family Worship Guides that walk you through the content and teaching similar to that of our Sunday Kids Ministry. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email Pastor Mark.
Kids Activity Sheet
We know preschoolers-elementary aged kids may want additional stimulus while watching and worshipping with the virtual worship gatherings. So, here are the generic Kids In-Worship Gathering Activity sheets we provide on Sundays that you can download and print at home to encourage your kids’ engagement. They can be used anytime to supplement any child’s worship gathering experience. Enjoy!
The Gospel & Parenting
We know the struggle can be real, and we desire to help foster an authentic and edifying support network for all parents and caregivers. Quarterly we provide a gathering for parents (& those interested in parenting) aimed at equipping, encouraging and empowering gospel-led parenting and discipleship.
Imagine! Kids Creative Arts Camp
Several years ago we identified a need for low-cost children’s camps in the summer, particularly for the diverse and lower-income families around each expression. In response, we began a fun, high-energy, low-cost ($10/child registration fee) 3-day summer camp staffed by Hallows volunteers. The camp has grown since the first year serving a greater Seattle population. (In addition, all registration fees are collected by The Hallows Church then donated to local schools and non-profits.) To sign up or for more info go to imaginekidscamp.com.
