Teaching Big Truths to Young Hearts 

     Games. Snacks. Prizes. Music. Stories. Fun. Laughter.  These are all exciting aspects of children's ministry, but often that's all there is.  At Heartland Baptist Church, we want to be more than just fun and games.  We are striving to create an environment where children will grow in the grace of Jesus Christ. We want children to Know Christ, to be Inspired to live for Him, to Develop their love for Him, and to Serve Him with their lives. If you come to Heartland, you will definitely find excitement, but we believe you will also find a place where kids can catch a vision of what God wants to do with their lives. Our Childrens Pastor is Mike Baumgarten and he may be reched at 515-441-3185. 

Kids Church (Sunday at 8:30 AM & 11:00 AM) 

     Kids Church is a ministry for your kids to enjoy while you are in the adult service on Sunday mornings. Heartland's Kids Church is a high energy place for kids in 1st-6th grade to experience the Word of God, be creative, have fun, make friends, and learn how to love and live for Jesus Christ. 

Sunday School  (Sunday at 10:00AM )

     A multitude of 1st-6th graders come through our doors to Sunday School.  The main focus of our Sunday School is studying and learning the Bible.  We have dedicated teachers who present lively Bible stories, interactive Bible activities, and relate truth to the life of each kid. 

Master Clubs (Wednesday at 7:00pm)

     Master Clubs is an exciting program that takes place during the school year! During this program your children will dig deeper into God"s word. They will learn more about salvation, baptism, service, sharing God's word, missions, giving, and much more. They will also be encouraged/challenged to memorize verses that go along with what they are learning about and will earn badges for a reward. After their book time  they will have a blast playing games, fellowshipping and eating some delicious snacks while listening to a short devotion! If you live in the Ames area and your child needs a ride or you have any further questions please contact our Children,s  Mike Baumgarten at 515-441-3185.

Kids Activities (Scheduled by Season)

Vacation Bible School
    Our VBS is for 4 yrs-olds through 6th grade and is 5 days in the mornings from 9am to 12:30pm. We make sure that our VBS has a fun theme and is exciting for any kid that attends. We have skits, games, themed lunches, awesome songs and some deep Bible truths that cause the kids to think spiritually. Each day of VBS the kids have a penny offering and at the end of the week that offering goes to one of our supporting missionaries. 

Sports Week 
    In June we have a great program that is geared to teach kids basic sports skills. Kids will have the choices of individual sports (Horsemanship, Sharpshooting and Golf) or Team Sports (Basketball, Softball, and Soccer) Kids not only learn basic skill but each day they discover truths from God's Word. We include lunch each day and kids in grades 3rd-8th can participate. 
Summer Church Camp 
    Our summer camps are a weeklong. Kids that are in 4th through 6th grade can attend. Part of our ministry's efforts to train kids in the ways of the Lord is to send them to our church camp each summer for a week. This week is not only fun but also a time they can be away from all the distractions of the world and concentrate on what the Bible says about how they should live.  It is a great camp in Ventura, Iowa.  Check it out at http://www.irbc.org
