...Know, Grow, Go, Show, Sow
God’s love is amazing! Each and every day we can discover new ways He works in our lives. Our goal in Children’s Ministry is to help kids connect to God and His Word in a fun, engaging, age-relevant environment. Our volunteers love Christ, love kids, and are dedicated to helping your child grow in faith. On this page you will find general program information.
Noah's Nursery: Infants and toddlers will have fun in Noah’s Nursery (Rm. 3) with Miss Stephanie and Miss Linda. There they will get their first and most important introduction to our loving God. Stimulating visual, tactile and auditory experiences will engage little ones and connect them with God.
Builders: Our preschool and kindergarten age learners (ages 3-5) will be actively engaged in the Bible story and lead to experience God's love and know Jesus.
Explorers: Elementary students (1st-6th grade) will get an Extreme Makeover (Christ-Like Attitudes)!
-- Kids learn when we have a relationship with Jesus, he changes our lives completely. They learn what it means to have Christ-like attitudes, and how God transforms us.
JAM Kids' Choir
All children of SPC through 4th grade will rehearse Sunday mornings at the beginning of JAM, which starts right after the Children’s Sermon during the 10:45 service. Lead by Bailey Bender and Catie Stanley.
Summer Vacation Bible School is an awesome June week of exciting Bible stories, creative crafts, wild games, tasty snacks and more that teaches kids about God's love and goodness. All activities are free! All children in K-6th grade are welcome to attend!
Christmas VBS is a one-day opportunity for children to experience the birth of our Savior in a new way. Held on a Saturday in December, kids will learn why we celebrate Christmas through stories, crafts, games and other activities. Program also includes a continental breakfast and lunch for a small registration fee. All children in K-6th grade are welcome to attend. Parents can stay for the fun or take this time to get some Christmas shopping done.
Fall Fun at the Playground We will meet on Sunday, September 28 for a Bible lesson, a snack and playtime at the Stow KidStation Playground next door from 3:00-5:00. All SPC kids, families and friends are welcome to attend!
Harvest Party at the Pumpkin Patch! Kids will learn to shine with the light of Jesus and how a Christian is like a pumpkin! There will be games, face painting, pumpkin picking, a hayride and tons of fun! Look for information in October!
Adventure Advent Through puzzles, games, songs, stories and making an Advent wreath, children will know that Advent is a time for preparing for the miracle of Christmas through good deeds, prayer, and reflection!
We offer these worship activities for children:
Children's Sermon Bulletins - Children of all ages can follow the sermon with a special puzzle page, available from the ushers. Completed puzzles are eligible for a prize drawing.
Children's Message – During the second worship service, toddlers-4th graders gather on stage for a fun message based on the day's scripture.
Preschool Buddies and Jesus (PB&J) - Following the children's message in the second service, preschoolers and kindergarteners are invited downstairs for a sermon based coloring page, story and playtime.
Jesus and Me (J.A.M.) – Following the children’s message in the second service, a children's church program based on the sermon is held in a classroom downstairs for kids 1st- 4th grade. Children will stay in worship on Communion Sundays.
For the dignity of worship, and as a courtesy to others, we ask that children unable to sit quietly through the service be allowed to spend time in our nursery instead.
Infants and Toddlers are welcome in Noah's Nursery all Sunday morning.
