At SPA, we have lots of room and lots of time for children! Just as Jesus welcomed them, we welcome them to be a part of what God is doing in our congregation. Every Sunday morning and Wednesday night, we are pleased to provide age-level teaching and together times to help infants through Elementary boys and girls understand how much God loves them, and has a special destiny for their lives!
Throughout the year, we also offer special events, Vacation Bible Schools, and many other opportunities for kids to use their talents. Keep reading to find out more!
SUNDAY MORNING MINISTRIES
SUNDAY MORNING ALIVE
From 9:15-10:15, there are classes for ages 2-K, Grades 1-3, and Grades 4-6. Kids are taught Bible stories with life applications to help them hide God's Word in their hearts! Our teachers are loving, caring individuals who want to see their students grow in the knowledge of God's love (youth and adult classes are also available during this time!)
WORSHIP AT A CHILD'S LEVEL
Psalm 8:2 says, "You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you".
At 10:30 each week, as youth and adults gather in the Sanctuary, children gather for their own worship times! From newborn to 23 months, we offer a nursery ministry to allow parents to enjoy the service. Our big, bright and cheerful Nursery combined with our dedicated staff provide a welcoming environment for your wee ones!
Pee Wee Waders (ages 2/3) and Wee Waders (ages 4/K) use music, interactive play, crafts, and Story times to teach young children about God's character. Several teams of young people and adults rotate to make Sunday mornings a time that is fun and nurturing. Our desire is to help children discover at a young age what it means to love and trust God, a foundation that will guide them throughout their lives!
For boys and girls in Grades 1-6, the OverFlow Zone is the place to be! "MPwrd Kidz" (Empowered Kidz) is a fast-paced worship experience for kids. Through music, object lessons, multi-media, and truths from God's Word, this time is designed to lead Elementary kids into an authentic relationship with God and His Son.
