What to Expect at Heartland Kids

Heartland Kids-Sundays, 9 & 11 AM In-Person for Kids Birth-PreK

Our staff and volunteers are committed to making the Bible real to kids through creative large group teaching and intimate small group relationships.

Our curriculum is virtue based and is communicated through music, creative drama, and a Bible lesson. To help you be the primary faith shaper for your family we provide Parent Cue when you pick up your child, or via the Parent Cue App (download below).

As we adapt to gathering in-person, we will be engaging a variety of safety precautions. Masks are optional at Heartland, including in our Heartland Kids spaces. Other safety precautions are described below.

Questions? CLICK HERE to email Michelle Pemberton, our Heartland Kids Pastor.

We will be asking every parent if your child or anyone living in your home has been tested, diagnosed, suspected to have, or exposed to COVID-19? If yes, then please quarantine for 14 days and worship with us from home using the resources on our Heartland Kids pages on the website.
Masks will be optional for children and adults entering Heartland Kids.
Adults and kids will be given hand sanitizer upon entering rooms and handwashing/sanitizing will take place during service. We will be cleaning and sanitizing each room before, during and after every service.
For the health of other families and our community, we will have to turn away kids that show signs of illness or report feeling unwell. We appreciate your understanding.
We will keep a record of attendance in each room and any others serving within our Heartland Kids area. Should we receive word of a positive test, we will work with the Johnson County Health Department and notify families of the exposure.
If you have any questions regarding our reopening policy and precautions, or need to alert us of a positive test or exposure after attending Heartland Kids, please reach out to Michelle Pemberton, our Heartland Kids Pastor at (CLICK HERE to open email link).

We focus on these three truths:


God made me.


God loves me.


God wants to be my friend forever.

We teach these truths through crafts, music and storytelling. We would like to help families continue teaching these truths at home with the help of “Parent Cue” available at Kids' check-in or in the Parent Cue app (download below).

If you are interested in peeking in on what a Sunday looks like for your child, email Michelle Pemberton to schedule a behind the scenes tour of Heartland Kids.

* Due to allergies, we are a snack-free environment.We also have great systems for getting in touch with you during the service if your kiddo needs you.
