CHILDREN’S MINISTRY
Hannaford Street Bible Church has a special love for children. Children get to worship, grow, and encounter Jesus each Sunday. Awesome kid’s programs, great teachers and leaders, music, and Bible stories are part of what makes Hannaford so fun. Also check out our other events and opportunities for kids throughout the year.

NURSERY CARE
Sunday mornings – Birth to 2 years
You can trust your children to our loving and qualified volunteer nursery staff available during Sunday School and both Sunday morning worship services. Young ones enjoy a safe, clean, and fun environment with caring adults who nurture young children as they discover how much God truly loves them! Children begin to take their first steps toward their walk with Jesus through music and play.
Our nursery is a protected environment where parents are required to check in and check out their children on Sunday mornings. You don’t have to worry if you’ll be needed while you’re away. During the adult worship services, you can be notified through our number notification system.

SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sunday mornings during Sunday school hour – 2 years to 5th grade
Children 3 years and older join others in their age group for interactive activities, crafts, games, and real-life Bible applications. These age-appropriate lessons will benefit each child as they grow to understand God’s love.

CHILDREN’S CHURCH
Sunday mornings during adult worship – 3 years to 5th grade
Children have the opportunity to build relationships with peers as well as adults in Children’s Church while parents attend the adult Worship Services. Primary Church is for children ages 3-5. Kid’s Church is for children from Kindergarten through 5th grade. In both, kids will build a foundation for spiritual growth through interactive discussion, activities, stories, and worship. Children’s Church is the place for your child to take the next step toward God.

AWANA JUNIOR
Sunday evenings, October-April @ 5:30-7:00pm – 3 years to 8th grade
AWANA is a program proven to build successful foundations for children’s knowledge of the Bible. In a positive, loving atmosphere children can gain confidence and a sense of accomplishment as they earn badges, prizes, and other awards. It motivates them spiritually, emotionally, and physically. We invite you to bring your child on Sunday evenings to join in on the fun of AWANA.

AWANA VARSITY
Sunday evenings, September-April – 9th to 12th grade
The AWANA Varsity program is designed to reach high school teens where they are and disciple them to a higher level. As you might expect, the materials these teens study are more challenging and rewarding.  Discipleship – becoming like Jesus Christ – is the foundation of the AWANA Varsity program.
