Welcome to our Children's Ministry
SCBC is a place where children are seen AND heard. While there is the expectation that children will be respectful of those around them and the sanctuary itself during the worship service, our children play an active role in our church community. They sing in the Youth Choir, participate in the Children's Message, serve as acolytes and portray the Christmas story in our annual pageant.
The Resurrection Egg hunt on Easter morning is one of the highlights of the year and an example of how we mix fun and teachable moments. At the end of the summer, children from the community are invited to join our children for Vacation Bible School, where we play, sing, pray and learn about God's great love for us. The children and youth are not 'the future' of SCBC, but a current, vital part of our present.
What to Expect
What to Expect
Children’s Bible Education:
Sunday morning Bible study is from 9:30AM-10:15AM on the third floor of the education wing, followed by the worship service at 10:30AM in the sanctuary.
We have two classes for Pre-K through 1st Grade and 2nd through 5th Grade. We are currently using ‘The Gospel Project’ as our curriculum.
Our younger classes lead children to connect with the God of the Bible. They will grow to understand a real and relevant God in their everyday lives and not simply as a character in a book. Through the use of scripture reading, craft projects and games, the children are challenged each week to apply the spiritual truths that only God can bring to their lives.
Children’s Worship takes place on Sundays from 11:00AM-11:30AM. The children are dismissed from the service to participate in age-appropriate lessons on series of topics such as The Parables, memorizing the books of the Bible and the importance of service.
Nursery care is also provided throughout the morning for children from infant to 3 years old.
