Teen Helpers: Teens 13 and up serve as Teen Helpers to help out with the Administration, Praise & Worship, Offering, and Awards during the service. They also help with taking kids to the Bathroom and sharing the Gospel with kids who indicated they want to know Christ. They are an integral part of the Juniors4Christ ministry and many of our teen helpers go on to colleges or are helping in other areas of church. Teens can get community service hours for helping in this ministry.
Bill Rice Ranch Junior Camp: Every year HVBC takes Juniors to Bill Rice Ranch in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for one week of Camp in July. Kids ages 8 to 12 experience a controlled atmosphere where they learn about the Bible, Missionaries, American Heritage, Cowboy Stories, and much more. They enjoy activities such as the Cool Pool, Cowboy Cookout, Horse Rides, Cowboy Town, and all the fun activities... Check out our monthly BRR Meetings on the events calendar to find out more about BRR.
Juniors4Christ Splash & Golf Day: Every year HVBC Juniors go to Germantown Splash Park and enjoy a day of splashing, golfing, and eating Pizza. Splash day is normally the first Saturday in August.

Primaries move up to Juniors4Christ if they are 6 years-old by September and Juniors who are 12 years-old by September graduate to Adult Church.
