At Hollowell we take ministry to our children very seriously. We want them to know Jesus and to have a good understanding of God’s word, so we offer a number of programs specifically intended for them!
A staffed nursery is available for children ages 2 and younger on Sunday mornings from 8:45 a.m. to the close of the worship service. Please advise the nursery staff where you can be found should they need to contact you. Be sure to complete a registration card for your baby at the Nursery counter.
Wednesdays 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
For ages 3 – 11. New format this year, Preschoolers have a separate program. Crafts, sports, Bible stories, Interactive games.

Church for Children 3 to 8 Years of Age.
How do we get to Junior Church?
When indicated on the screen; in the sanctuary, during the Celebration Service, children are dismissed.
Ages 3 – 5 will meet upstairs in the room adjacent to the Nursery and across from the pre-school room. The Coordinator is Cindy Lougheed.
Ages 6 – 8 will meet downstairs. The Coordinator is Pam Cradduck.
In both cases, Junior Church leaders accompany them to the classrooms. Parents may retrieve their child at the end of the worship service. When you arrive to pick up your child, please sign him or her out. If your child is not registered, please accompany him/her to the classroom area and complete a registration card.
What is the format?
We begin with a time of welcome, prayer, worship song and a Bible story. The story will be told in an engaging way through story telling, puppet shows or video clips. Small group teachers reinforce the stories with a craft/coloring, discussion, games, etc.
Curriculum – What is God like? God is strong, loving, powerful, always with us! How do we know these things? The Bible! We are learning about the character of God as we study one Bible story each week in an exciting journey from Genesis through Revelation.
If you or your child has a disability or special need, please inform one of our ushers outside the sanctuary so that they may direct you. A specialized staff person waits to assist you.
