Rachel Ratliff, Children's Pastor

WELCOME!

We are so happy to see you and your family at The Foothills. We believe that God puts a priority on families and we want to honor Him by doing likewise! If you have any questions about your children or the kids' program, please find me or any staff member and we would be happy to help. At The Foothills, your children will learn about God's revelation of His character in the Bible, how we experience God's love, and how we can live according to His principles. - Pastor Rachel

 

our mission

The Foothills Church Children’s Ministry is committed to equipping children by presenting the Word of God in an exciting way to bring kids into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our approach specifically aims at meeting kids at their level, teaching in age-appropriate environments and emphasizing what matters to them… fun!

Your child’s safety is our first priority, because we believe that we are to be good and faithful stewards of the precious treasure that has been entrusted to us. As such, every person 18 years and older that works with your child in our children’s department has undergone a fingerprint background check.

Nursery – Our Nursery is open prior to the beginning of each Sunday and Wednesday service. You are welcome to bring your child birth to 23 months old into the cozy atmosphere of our Nursery. For the safety of each child, an adult must use the computerized sign in system in our Fellowship Hall before bringing their child to the Nursery.

 

Sunday School – Children ages 2 years old through 5th grade will enjoy our Sunday School Program. The program begins after worship and prior to the sermon, when the kids and teachers are dismissed for Sunday School. If your child is participating in Worship Out Loud (see below), your child will be taken to the appropriate classroom for Sunday School. Parents take their children directly to their classroom. For the safety of each child, an adult must use the computerized sign in system, in our Fellowship Hall, before bringing their child to class.

Worship Out Loud – The first Sunday of each month, the children attend worship in the main sanctuary with their family. The other Sundays and each Wednesday service is Worship Out Loud. Worship Out Loud includes skits, music and dancing. We invite children in 2 years old through 5th grade to attend. The Worship Out Loud room is available for sign in 5 minutes before each service. At the end of WOL, your child will be walked to the appropriate classroom for Sunday School. For the safety of each child, an adult must use the computerized sign in system, in our Fellowship Hall, before bringing their child to Worship Out Loud.
