Children and Preteens

Helping Kids Encounter Jesus and Develop a Lasting Faith

The vision for Children’s and Preteen Ministries is that they will encounter Jesus, experience lasting faith, and grow as fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Children - Birth to 2nd Grade

Birth to age 23 months

We are currently working on Sunday morning programming for our littlest ones. For now, we invite the kids to be in the worship service with their family. Activity bags are available from the children's table on the patio that are full of things to keep your kids engaged.

Come join us on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am! Program capacity is limited to 10. Kids begin in worship with their families and are then dismissed to their program. Parents, please sign in your kids on the patio in front of the sanctuary. The program is held outdoors in the playground space outside of room 215.

Core Values and Commitments

Parents

We support parents as the primary spiritual nurturers of their family. Recent studies tell us that parents are the most important indicator of lasting faith in the life of children.


Invested Adults

We invite children into relationships with invested, loving, faithful, and prayerful adults who are equipped and supported for ministry.


Wider Church Experiences

We place high value on children experiencing our entire life together as a church, encouraging a wide experience of worshiping, serving and growing in the life of the church at SBPC; outside of age-specific programs.


Age Specific Programming

We value specific spaces and experiences on Sundays and Wednesdays that provide fun and safe spaces for children to encounter Jesus Christ, grow lasting faith, and live as fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
