We connect in small groups to grow in and strengthen our relationships with Christ and with each other. 

Our Growth streams include:

  • Harvest (formerly Nursery) and Children's Church
  • Youth Group
  • Young Adults Group

  • Prayer Group

Harvest (formerly Nursery) Church

  • For Children 6 months - 4 years

  • Children must be registered. Forms available at the office/Welcome Desk and registration desk.
  • Guests will fill out a guest registration. If you decide to attend HAC regularly, you will be asked to register your child.
  • Children are in the service with parents until Praise is complete. Parent/s will then take child to their room where they will sign them in.
  • We are Plan To Protect® certifified and administer a comprehensive protection policy. Our registration/sign in/sign out procedures are to ensure the safety of your children while in our programs.
  • All children are assigned a family number. If the teacher needs the parent/s, that number will appear on the screen at the front right side of the sanctuary.
  • Before taking your child to class, please take them to the bathroom. If your child cannot toilet themselves, you will be called on to assist them should they need to visit the bathroom during class.
  • Before class, check if your child is hungry or thirsty. It helps the volunteers if your child has their physical needs met before going in to children's church.
