New To Horizon Church?
We love meeting new families and having children join our Kids’ Ministry. As you enter Horizon Church please make yourself and your child known to our Horizon team, who can help direct you to our kids facilities. If you are visiting, our team will take extra special care to help your child feel comfortable in our programs. If you’d like to check your child in, our team will assist you in filling out some forms and help you to become familiar with our registration process.
At Horizon Church, we have beautiful dedicated spaces for parents with babies. Our parents’ rooms are fitted with couches, a change table, microwave and toys to help make caring for your little one as easy as possible. To ensure you don’t miss out on what’s happening in service, we provide visual and audio means for you to enjoy the service.
We have an incredible team of leaders who are dedicated to safely caring for your children. Every Horizon Kids volunteer has obtained their Working with Children Check, processed through state government, and are carefully reviewed by our Pastoral staff. For every program, we ensure that there are two or more leaders with the children at all times. At Horizon Kids we are committed to the highest standard of safety.
The Horizon Kids team wear orange t-shirts and lanyards with their name, so you can identify them around the church. Please feel free to approach one of our amazing team if you need assistance or have questions about Horizon Kids.
