As a ministry of Harvest Church, Harvest Kids Ministry

aims to create a safe environment for children to learn

about Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Kingdom. Our goal is to

raise up a generation of children who worship the Father,

are confident in their identity in Christ, and move in the

power of the Spirit and the supernatural.

Our Ministry offers nursery services, in addition to

children’s ministry for children 3-7 and 8-12. Should parents

and nursing mothers wish to supervise children under 2 years

in the toddler's room, they can enjoy watching the service

live on the big screen provided.

Our Ministry is always looking for help and support,

either with teaching, nursery, or simply offering a helping

hand. All volunteers are subject to a criminal record check.

Lauren MacNaughton – Children’s Ministry Coordinator

My heart and passion is to see children raised up in the love of Christ and learn to walk

in supernatural power through his Holy Spirit. I have several years experience working with

children and youth – including acting as a Sunday school teacher, child care provider,

social worker, and general “lover of kiddos”.

Kim Watkins – Assistant Children’s Ministry Coordinator

I am a wife and a mother of 2 grown children and a grandmother of 1. I have been a

nanny and childcare provider for over 30 years. I have extensive experience with children's

mental health (ask and I'll share more). I love watching children learn and grow and can't

wait to get to know them.

ELPHA! Happy to be me, finds ELPHA dreaming to be a butterfly.

ELPHA invites children into her world of dreams, instilling in them their God-given identity, purpose and value, through the lessons she learns.

ELPHA! HAPPY TO BE ME, is the first of a series of ELPHA books with each one addressing different real-life issues that children may find themselves facing in today's society.
