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. 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 registration table for a tour, staff introductions, and to sign in.

KIDS CREEK

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.

The 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.

Stop by the SC Kids registration table in the Connection Cafe for more information.

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 during the 11 AM Sunday service for third- through fifth-graders.

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.

SUMMER FUN

Each summer at SC Kids, we break from our routine to spend three months at play. Play Camp, for ages 3 (and potty-trained) through fifth grade, offers a short story, craft or activity, and special visitors — like Potter Park Zoo animals! Play Camp is during the 11 AM service ONLY from June through late August.

The SC Kids registration table is your spot for questions and to sign up.
