Our desire is for children to understand Romans 3:23 'that the gift of grace is needed by all people. We want them to understand that we receive forgiveness through a prayer of repentance (turning away from our sins) and that we ask Jesus to be with us to guide our lives. We want to present this gift clearly, relevantly and age appropriately. Read More
We want our kids' faith to change them from the inside out - not because of a bunch of rules but because they want to. Growth follows grace, just as living a Christ-centered life follows actually accepting Christ. A life that's lived more and more in Christ is apparent to others, so we celebrate when we hear stories from parents and teachers about changed lives. Read More
Kids thrive in small groups because it's a safe environment for spiritual growth and CONNECTING WITH ONE ANOTHER. Children who are part of a small group are certain to better navigate the challenges of life they now face, as well as those that are ahead. Therefore, small groups are intentionally planned throughout HiZhouse to help us accomplish our mission. Read More
All Christians are given spiritual gifts that they are expected to use in the work of a local body of believers (I Cor. 12). However, to some there may appear three ways to use a gift; preach, sing in the choir, or teach a community group. We want to offer opportunities for kids to explore different gift areas and to observe adults in the church body model the use of their gifts. Our desire is for kids to eagerly anticipate; wonder how God is going to use me?” or thinks, “Maybe one day I’ll get to ___________”! Read More
In a world that encourages materialism and applauds debt we want kids to understand that everything we have belongs to God. Even though most children don’t have a lot of money or stuff to manage yet, good stewardship applies to a commodity they do have time. We believe children can learn that even small investments can IMPACT OUR WORLD FOR THE GOOD. Read More
