Weekend Update

Attention Heartland Kids Families:

We have made the decision to postpone Heartland Kids during the weekend services for the near future. Unfortunately, we no longer have the available staff and volunteers to safely run classrooms.
This is due to positive cases in our classrooms this last weekend, several of Heartland Kids staff and volunteer team being close contacts and having exhausted attempts to recruit more volunteers.

Stay tuned for details of online opportunities for your kids to participate in Heartland Kids and there will also be activities available for your kids if you bring them into the service with you.

NEED PRAYER?

Hey kids (and families)!
Is there something you would like the Heartland Kids team to be praying for?
Let us know and we would love to pray for you and your family.

FAMILY PRAYER MATERIALS

Enjoy the materials below with your family!  New resources will be added each month.

PRAYING AT HOME

Need some ideas for praying with your kids? 
Heartland Kids has you covered!  We will be regularly posting new ideas and resources for praying at home with your kids.
Here is a great starting point with three simple ideas:

pause and pray at meal times

Pausing to pray before meals is a great way to bring the family together around the table.  
Being thankful creates a happy heart and modeling this thankfulness at mealtime promotes joy!

pause and pray when you wash your hands

We are washing our hands a lot today.  As you are washing, it’s easy to let your mind wander aimlessly.  In order to harness that minute of thought, ask the Lord for forgiveness and cleansing while the water runs over your hands.  Associating the acts of forgiveness and cleansing with hand-washing time is a beautiful picture of God’s grace that children can easily remember.

pause and pray when you need help

Is homework or doing school at home in a new way causing extra frustration?  Stopping to pray invites the Lord into the struggle and provides strength to continue trying. 
Perhaps your child is struggling with a friend issue or your family is experiencing a financial need.  To ask the Lord for help whenever we need it is a great way to teach your child to rely on Him for all needs.
Lose an item in your house?  
Ask God to help you find the item.
