CHILDREN

Our mission in SC Kids is to ignite authentic life in Christ, no matter the age! We use a four-year cycle of bible stories, augmented by missions, special activities and projects, to help kids see their place in God’s great story.

SUNDAY AM NURSERY

Even the youngest kids at Sycamore Creek learn about their world and the God who created it. nursery blurb

Our nursery care provides a fun, safe, and engaging place for babies and toddlers to play during the 9:30 and 11 AM services on Sundays at South Lansing and the 11 AM service in Potterville. Screened staff provide care and guidance, leading kids through free choice and a simple prayer and snack.

Children from birth to age 3 are welcome. Stop by the SC Kids Nursery for a tour, staff introductions, and to sign in.

KIDS CREEK

kids creek16

Our Kids Creek program focuses on the building blocks of faith: getting to know Jesus, praying in community, and telling and retelling God’s great stories.

At both our South Lansing and Potterville campuses, a multi-age classroom is available for kids ages 3 (and potty-trained) through fifth grade. We begin with the adults for the first couple songs of worship, then we head upstairs to our classroom.

In the Kids Creek room, we share a snack, prayer, and offering, and continue with our bible storytelling. Afterward, the children tell, draw, act, or create the scene from the story to help in memory.

Then, free play choice allows the children time to process what they’ve heard, form friendships, and just plain have fun.

South Lansing’s Kids Creek is offered at the 9:30 and 11 AM services. In Potterville, Kids Creek is during second service only. Both programs run from August through late May.

Stop by the Kids Creek tables at either campus for more information and to sign in!

UPSTREAM

We recognize that children need more challenge as they grow older. To meet older Kids Creek children’s needs, we have a small group just for third- through fifth-graders. The group meets at the South Lansing campus during the 11 AM Sunday service from August through late May.

After the first few songs in the adult worship space, middle-grade students join the littles upstairs. The students are together for snacks and storytelling, and then transition with a small group leader to the other side of the room. Community-building and a deeper discussion about the bible story happen in a way that encourages kids to talk about faith with their peers.
