Desiring to "love God and love people" together.
We're Here To Help You Find Your Place In God's Kingdom
HCC is a place where you can learn more about God and how to serve Him. We believe that when we learn more about God, it helps us to understand His love for us and the world around us. That knowledge will help you to find your purpose in life and make an impact on others for the sake of the Gospel.

Meet The Worship Director
Diane leads worship on Sunday mornings and has a heart for connecting with God through music. She has played the piano in church since 7th grade - in the old days along side someone playing the organ while singing the good old hymns! And while she does enjoy the good old hymns, she also enjoys the message in the new worship songs.
Diane has been married to Sam for 41 years and they have 4 married children and 6 grandchildren (who she dotes on way more than she ever did her kids - but what grandma doesn't?). She loves watching football, reading a good book and spending time outdoors.
Meet The Preschool Director
Ashley is the director of Kingdom Kids Early Learning Center. She became director in 2019 and was the lead PreK teacher before that. She has worked for Kingdom Kids and the Hamilton Church of Christ since Kingdom Kids opened in January of 2015. She is from Edon, OH, graduated from Edon High School and lives there currently with her husband, Jason. Ashley has 3 children and 2 stepchildren.

She has worked in Early Childcare for 20 years, and loves all of the Kingdom Kids children as well as the Hamilton community.
It's such a great town to work in! Ashley is proud that Kingdom Kids offers a faith-based curriculum utilized along side their early learning curriculum daily in every classroom. Our Kingdom Kids children also love going to the church for lessons with Miss Jill every week! Ashley’s own children keep her pretty busy with all of their sports, and extracurricular activities. She also enjoys reading, going to the zoo, and other fun little getaways with her family.
