SOUTHSIDE CHILDREN

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.

SUNDAYS FOR CHILDREN

9AM Worship

 Following 9 am Children's Church, we escort your children to their grade level Sunday School Class in the Children's Building. You can pick them up following 9 am worship. However, we invite them to remain for Sunday School (and you too!), and you can pick them up when it concludes at 10:50 am. The Children's Sunday School rooms are in the two-story Children's building on the southern end of the campus.

11AM Worship

 For families attending 11 am worship, please pick up your children from Sunday School at 10:50 am.  They will attend worship with you and be invited down during the service to the front for the Children's Sermon.  Your child is welcome to remain in worship with you, or  join us for Children's Church.  After the service, pick up is in the Langley Chapel, which is adjacent to the church.

10AM Sunday School

Children's Sunday School Classes meet in the Children's Building.  Prek and Kindergarten classes are downstairs, and 1st-5th Grade classes are upstairs. Each grade PreK3- 5thGrade, has a Sunday School class and two trained, dedicated volunteer teachers leading your children each week. In addition to weekly Bible story-based lessons, we introduce your children to the core knowledge goals.
