Southside Kids is designed solely for the purpose of helping children know, love, and follow Christ. Our Kids’ Ministry is deeply committed to seeing kids reached with the Gospel. We believe children are very capable of understanding the truths of the Gospel and have the ability to repent of their sin and trust Christ for their salvation.
We help children learn foundational truths from God’s Word each week through intentional, age-appropriate Bible studies and activities and by partnering with parents to help equip them to disciple their children.
We provide childcare for ages 6 weeks to 2 year olds and age-graded Bible classes for kids 2 years old – 5th grade during all weekly service times. These fun and high-energy classes are led by trained and committed volunteers who share our vision and passion for kids.
First time guests are encouraged to stop by the Welcome Center for more information about our Preschool and Kids Ministry. We understand dropping your child off in a new environment can be an overwhelming experience and we want to make the transition as easy as possible. When you arrive, you will be asked to fill out a Guest Information card. Once that is completed, a staff member or volunteer will walk you and your child to their classroom where you will meet their teacher and see their classroom
Infant – Kindergarten
9:15 Sunday School, 10:30 Worship
We believe in active and hands-on learning experiences with our busy preschoolers. From the time they walk through the door, they will enjoy a variety of activities that center around their Bible Story for the day. Children will participate in learning activities, crafts, music, games and more as they learn about Jesus’ love for them. Preschoolers are invited to stay for an additional hour of committed learning as their parents attend worship. Birth – 3 year olds will stay in the preschool area while 4-5 year olds will join the older children on the kids’ hallway on the 2nd floor for Children’s Worship.
Wednesdays are a time of discipleship for our kids at Southside. We created a ministry unique to Southside called M3 Worship. The kids at Southside will learn to Worship through Music, Missions and Message. M3 Worship uniquely blends Scripture memory, Bible teaching and tons of fun to impact kids and reach out into our community. This ministry helps develop within our kids a love for God’s Word and hearts to serve Christ. We offer childcare for birth-3 year olds while our 4-5 year olds join the older kids for M3 Worship.
