Sunday School:

Sunday school follows our praise & worship time.  Families stay to sing and worship together and then children are dismissed to their Sunday school classes after the welcome and announcements.

  • Nursery (Infant - 2 years) - Our lead caregiver is Stephanie Ochoa who is assisted by church member volunteers. They love doing crafts, playing, and singing.
  • 2 & 3 year olds - Mrs. Christy is a favorite with the kids! Her class loves praising God through singing & dancing, listening to a Bible story, and creating arts & crafts.
  • Pre-K4 through 2nd Grade - Mrs. Beth and her class are currently on a 3 year journey through the Bible with our Generations of Grace curriculum. They study God's Word discussing applications and lessons learned, play games, and make crafts that teach about God's Word. They meet in the "Tree House" upstairs.
  • Children 3rd grade and up stay with their families in the worship service to hear the sermon. There are special sermon notes for kids to use while they listen to the message. Family integrated worship is important and provides a time that families can come together and talk about the message. Parents, grandparents, and families are able to guide their children through God's Word.

Generations of Grace Curriculum:

Generations of Grace is designed to magnify God by studying His character in the pages of Scripture. We can better understand who He is and how we are to respond to Him by studying how His redemptive plan has unfolded and how He has used men to accomplish His purposes. Over a three-year period, this curriculum covers the entire narrative of God's redemptive plan.

  • Year 1 teaches the narrative of the Bible from Genesis through Numbers
  • Year 2 teaches the narrative of the Bible from Deuteronomy through Nehemiah
  • Year 3 teaches the narrative of the Bible from the Life of Christ through Revelation chapter 22

Every Sunday the Parent Resource is emailed to parents and families in the Children's Ministry. The Parent Resources provide activities and reading for families to further study at home with one another.  If you are not signed up for our Children's Ministry Email Newsletters and would like to receive emails from the church and Children's Ministry, click here.

What is "The Spring?"

Our church is located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country where there are many rivers and lakes. At our church entrance, and in our church logo, there stands a windmill. Windmills draw up water from the ground and it just so happens the Bible shares with us many stories of Jesus speaking a lot about water!

"But whoever drinks of the water that i give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:14

"Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, 'Out of his heart will flow rivers of living waters." John 7:38-39

Those are just two of the verses where the idea for "The Spring," Hill Country Church Children's Ministry, came bubbling to life. A spring is a rather shallow body of water and is a great place for young children who are not proficient swimmers to sit, splash and enjoy the water. Our prayer is that "The Spring" Children's Ministry at Hill Country Church will be a place where children can get their little feet wet with the truths of Jesus and His Word, grow in His love and come to accept him as their own personal savior.
