Youth Ministries

Providing Christian growth and guidance for children up to age 12, these groups give parents and guardians an opportunity to see their children enjoy an environment of Christian fun and fellowship as they learn to be disciples of Jesus in their early age. Freedom Hillside takes serious the same mandate that the Word speaks into the home: “train up a child in the way that he should go….”

All Church activities for children and youth are community based. Youth who are not members of the church can participate as long as they comply with the decorum and behavior standards of the church. It is the church’s belief that if a child is given a chance to connect, it will help him or her to make a decision to give their lives to Jesus.
