One day each Spring is set aside to celebrate our children. Usually on a Sunday, the morning is filled with special lessons and gifts, and the evening finishes off this special day with an event for the entire family. The upcoming Children's Day will be March 3, 2013.
The Sunday before school starts each year marks our annual Promotion Sunday. Babies through 12th graders move to new classes and meet new teachers. Children receive promotion packets that always include a small gift in the mail the week before this special Sunday.

All Children who enter Kindergarden in August are invited to attend a Welcome Kindergarden Party. A devotion, refreshments and a new Bible are all part of the party. Parents are invited too! The next party will be on Saturday, August 24, from 9 to 11 am.
When a child comes to know Christ as their Savior, it is certainly a special time. This class is held three times a year. Boys and girls learn about baptism, writing their own testimony, caring about others, the importance of reading their Bible each day, and so much more as they begin their spiritual journey. During 2013, this class will be held on February 10, June 30 and October 20. Registration is required. Please contact the children’s ministry office for details.
We love children here at HAFBC. We have shirts for Bible Zone and JAM on sale for $10 each. Several times during each year, we announce KidZone t-shirt day. All leaders and children are invited to wear their shirts that day.
