Harvest Kids

HARVEST KIDS

Harvest Kids is all about helping kids find and follow Jesus. A child’s first impressions of the God of the Bible is a big deal. In fact, ideas of God formed in childhood often stick (for better or worse) with a person throughout their lifetime.

While God has given parents the primary responsibility of forming those early ideas of God, our goal is to provide powerful boosts to the Bible teaching happening at home through ninety minutes of intentional singing; engaging, deep Bible teaching; and loving interaction with God’s people each Sunday morning.

You can save time and REGISTER YOUR CHILD HERE (Saturday and Sunday morning registration submissions will not likely be processed until the following work week)


WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

As you come through the doors of Upper Merion Middle School, turn to your right, and you’ll be in the Harvest Kids hallway. You’ll be greeted by our check-in volunteers, who will help you register your child and find their classroom. They’ll get you a welcome bag with some fun items for your child.

All teachers and volunteers have had background checks completed, and we have careful policies in place to ensure your child’s safety.

  • What 0 - 35-month-olds can expect
    • A fun, safe environment (we separate age groups in this room by mobility and development)
    • An allergy-friendly snack of veggie straws for older children
    • A simple Bible story and song for older children
  • What Preschoolers (3 - 5-year-olds) can expect
    • A fun, safe environment
    • An age-appropriate worship time
    • An engaging Bible lesson
    • Activities and crafts to reinforce the lesson
  • What Lower Elementary (K-2nd Grade) can expect
    • A trip next door to the Pre-K room for a joint time of age-appropriate worship
    • An engaging Bible lesson
    • Activities and crafts to reinforce the lesson
  • What Upper Elementary (3rd-5th Grade) can expect
    • A trip into the auditorium to join the adult worship service for congregational singing
    • An engaging Bible lesson that encourages those students who can to read the Bible for themselves
    • Discussion to help students apply the Word to their lives

WHAT WILL YOU TEACH MY CHILD?

  • The Gospel
    • We want each child to know that he/she is loved deeply by the Creator God, who sent His Son Jesus to die in sinners' place on the cross. Jesus defeated death, bodily rose from the grave, and now offers eternal life to anyone who will trust in Him. 
  • A Chronological Bible Theology
    • We want children to understand the overall storyline of the Bible, not just individual Bible stories.
  • Scripture Memory
    • Children (and adults!) need the Word of God stored in their brains for ready use.
  • Systematic Theology
    • We want children to have a doctrinal framework that will help them make sense of the massive story of the Bible.

PRACTICALLY, HOW DO YOU TEACH THOSE THINGS?

  • We use Generations of Grace curriculum, which cycles through all the major narratives of the Bible every three years.  If your child is with us from age three all the way through fifth grade, he or she will work through the Bible three times with increasing depth each time.
  • We seek to share the gospel regularly when it fits well with the lesson.
  • In preschool, we start working on memorizing the books of the Bible together.
  • We usually repeat memory verses several weeks in a row, encouraging kids to actually memorize them!
  • We gather kids in K-2nd each week for a musical worship time, where we get to praise God together. Kids in 3rd-5th grade travel as a class each week into the adult worship service, because we believe that it’s a huge benefit to kids to see their parents worshiping and to experience the awe of God that comes in the gathered worship service.
  • We teach systematic theology through our Sunday night program, Kids4Truth.

DO I HAVE TO REGISTER MY CHILD IN ADVANCE?

DO YOU HAVE A MIDWEEK PROGRAM FOR MY KIDS?

  • Our "mid-week" program happens on Sunday nights at Peace Lutheran, 200 E. Beidler Road
  • We meet from 5:30 - 7:30 PM, while teens meet at a nearby home, and parents are able to attend the small group that also meets at Peace Lutheran.
  • A typical evening involves an object lesson, a particular doctrine, small group time for memorizing verses and doctrine, game time, snack time, choir, and a missionary story.
