After the Communion service has concluded and the weekly contribution has been collected, our song leader will announce that children are dismissed to Children's Church. This is strictly voluntary, so if parents wish to keep their children with them in the auditorium, of course they may. Children's Church is conducted in room 10 (1st room behind the auditorium throught the door to your left as you face the stage). This class is led by Jackie Cornett with several adult volunteers assisting her with Bible stories, singing, and learning activities for the children ages 4-11. Attendance averages about 26 children per week. Note that for younger children, there is one attended nursery in the 1st floor of the education wing, one unattended nursery at the back of the auditorium (to the left as you enter the foyer), and one toddler "cry room" for restless youngsters if you need to use these facilities.
Highland View's AWANA club is open to children ages 1-12. Our club is unique in our area in that no child is asked to pay a fee to participate. The congregation provides all of the materials and are snacks free for the students. AWANA basically follows the school-year calendar from August through May, dismissing for holidays and for the summer break after school concludes for the year. To read more about our AWANA program, see pictures of the activities, read the schedule followed each Wednesday evening, and see a calendar for the year, please check out our AWANA page.

During the AWANA breaks the younger kids have a combined, activity driven, class in room 10! Teachers, curriculum, and activities vary during the short breaks (fall break, Christmas break, spring break), and there is a set teacher and programming for the summer series. This summer, the instructor is Jackie Cornett.
When a child enters middle school (6th Grade) they are in the pre-teen category and begin to participate in our youth program. During the teenage (high school) years, classes cover not only the Bible as a guide for life, but also guidance in the specific challenges teens face. College students who live here or visit families from out-of-town campuses also can find not only education, but also opportunities to serve their younger classmates as they study God's word.
