Children's Ministry


We love children at Harlem Baptist! Ministry to children and their families are a vital part of our church. We desire to help children experience and show the Love of Christ.  A large part of our ministry is to show the Love of Christ to all of the children in our community whose families may or may not attend HBC.  What a blessing it is to see children develop a Love for God and to see them show that Love to others.


We are excited to announce that as of Sunday, October 7th, we have a newly revamped Sunday morning schedule for our children (3 years old- 5th grade). First is our Power Up hour, which occurs during the normal Sunday School time (9:45 am- 10:45 am). Then, during the morning worship service time, children will have the option to experience their own worship service catered specifically toward their age group in B.L.A.S.T. Believers Learning and Seeking Truth). Both of these new programs are optional, but we hope you will bring your family in for a visit and check out what’s new in our Children’s Ministry. We ask that you pre-register your child(ren) prior to each program. Click here to be directed to the Children’s Ministry Registration page.

AWANA: Awana is our Wednesday night children’s ministry.  It is open for children in pre-k through 5th grade and begins at 6:15pm each week.  For over 60 years the Awana program has empowered churches to teach children to know, love, and grow in their relationships with Christ.  Each week children commit to memorizing scripture, learning the Bible, and experiencing the love of Christ through His Word and through our many volunteers who are committed to loving our children as Christ loves us. 

{will resume after the New Year on January 9th}

Sunshine Choir and Music Makers will be moving to Wednesday nights and will become a part of the AWANA schedule each week. This “Praise Time” will be incorporated into the rotation of AWANA with Kathy Arrowood  leading. They will continue to sing a couple of times each semester during our Sunday morning worship services. AWANA will now begin at 6:15 pm on Wednesday nights.  We are excited and look forward to a great year with our children!
