Caring and dedicated teachers and helpers provide a nurturing and loving environment for all children, allowing them to interact and learn with the other children in their class. All children need to register and check in at a Check-In Station prior to Bible class.
Grades 1 – 4 | Sundays 9:00 am | Wednesdays 6:45 pm | Pathfinders Children’s Area, Level 2
The Pathfinders Children’s Ministry encourages Christ to be the center of the lives of Hillsboro’s elementary-aged children and their families. Through weekly Bible classes, service projects, and special events, Pathfinders aims to help children to continue to know Christ as their Lord and walk in His light.
On Sunday mornings, children meet by grade level and learn key Bible stories and life applications from the Old Testament and the New Testament. Caring, energetic teachers and helpers guide the children through each lesson and encourage children to complete a weekly Bible reading plan. On Wednesday nights, children learn stories and life lessons from the Bible by rotating through a variety of learning styles such as Art, Drama, Activities, and Service. All children need to register and check-in at a Check-In Station prior to Pathfinders classes.

The 5th Grade Ministry helps transition 5th-graders into middle school and prepare for their move into the Youth Group. Classes meet these smart, growing young people on their level – talking more deeply about their faith, their influence, and their ability to be a light for good in the world. Through weekly Bible classes, service projects, and special events, the goal is to help the children focus their daily thoughts and actions on Christ and forge great friendships.

D6 is a family led, interactive Life Group that provides fellowship, Bible Study, and service opportunities for parents and their children. D6 stands for Deuteronomy 6:5-7, which commands dads and moms to take everyday opportunities to impress God’s Word upon the hearts of their children. The goal of the D6 ministry is to help encourage this family-driven process.
Hillsboro Kids hosts several special family & children’s events and service opportunities throughout the year. A neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt, Vacation Bible School, Family Campout, Fall Hayrides, Trunk Or Treat, and Breakfast with Santa are some of the special family-friendly times Hillsboro shares together each year.
