Gather. Grow. Go.

WELCOME to Peace Children’s Ministry

What to Expect 

We offer secure Check-in for all of our Sunday morning Children’s Ministries to give parents peace of mind while they are in worship. Your child’s safety is most important to us. Our check-in station is located right outside the sanctuary in the Narthex (between the gym and sanctuary). *If it will be your first time attending, come a few minutes early to get your family registered. 

After check-in, children who are attending Nursery can be dropped off in our Nursery room (next to the sanctuary) and those children attending SBC will sit with their parents in worship until the Children’s Message. Directly following the Children’s Message, children are received by our CM Team in the Narthex and taken to our lower level for SBC. *If you decide not to have your child attend Children’s Ministry after checking in please alert an SBC team member.

Nursery (6 wks-36 mos) is staffed with caring individuals who are background checked and CPR/First Aid trained. Our caregivers are available Sunday mornings from 8:45 am-12:45 pm to care for children 6 weeks-36 months.

Sunday Bible Club (3 yrs-5th grade) SBC is offered for children 3 years old through 5th grade after the children’s message through the end of each service on Sundays. We offer Bible teaching that at your child’s level through energetic music, action-packed and interactive Bible stories by a dedicated team.

Kid’s Growth Gathering (3 yrs-5th grade) KGG is offered from 10:05 am -11:05 am for children 3 years old through 5th grade in the lower level youth area of parents attending Growth Gathering between services. While parents are growing in their class, children are shown a quick Bible-based movie that will reinforce what is the focus of their time at SBC. *snack offered

Family Events

Family Events We feel that time spent together growing in the knowledge of Jesus’ love is important. Our goal is to have a monthly event focused on families of children 3-years-old through 5th grade. All events can be found on our Facebook page.
