Our mission is to equip the children at our church with a growing faith in Jesus Christ and a heart to share His love with others. By partnering with parents, we want to teach children about the life-changing love of Christ and how it applies to their lives right now—no matter how old they are! It's our hope that children will not only grasp the message of God's love for themselves, but understand how important it is to share that message with those around them as well. 

Children's Church Online

Each Sunday we will have a Children's Church activity for your children to participate in so they can grow in their faith while you tune into the Sunday Service. Videos and instructions will be sent out each week through email, if you are not receiving Children's Ministry emails, contact Angie Cosper and she'll get you added! We encourage you to set up a separate device in advance, for your kids to enjoy the Kids Crew Children's Church video during the sermon. You can find the Children's Church video below on this page, or by going to Southside's YouTube page and looking on the Kids Crew playlist. (Tip: Headphones! And crayons & paper or playdough plus a rock and paint to help them interact with the lesson more.) Watch the video for photos kids sent me last week!

Sunday School Class Socials

Look for info about 20-minute Zoom Socials during the week for each grade. Log on with your kids and check in with their Sunday School Teachers and classmates. They miss meeting together!

Funday Monday

Check out the Facebook page or Instagram for a fun dress up for the week and devo for your family hosted by SUMC mom, Mandy Drake and her kids Liam & Presley. Send in photos for us to share!

Wednesdays with Whitney

Check out the kids social media pages on Wednesdays for this preview of a favorite Worship song hosted by our own Whitney Morgan. Then - tune in to SUMC's Facebook page for a live stream of this song and other worship music at 7pm on Wed night.

Pen/Phone/Zoom PALS!

Families with kids, contact me to be connected with a Senior. This is a great time to connect with another generation, reach out to someone who may be at home alone and help care for one another.


Feel free to reach out anytime and help your kids give me a call/text/email/zoom! I'm always available to help, talk, chat, visit or just listen!
