“And Jesus grew in wisdom, stature and favor with God and men.” Luke 2:52
The Mission of the Children’s Ministry at SCC is to build a strong spiritual foundation by guiding children and parents to discover a personal relationship with Christ. Our Vision is to develop a partnership with parents in laying a spiritual foundation that will lead a child into a strong relationship with Christ.
L.I.F.E. STUDIES FOR KIDS
Sunday Mornings at 9:00 a.m.
252 Kids LIFE Studies is a focused time for kids to learn biblical truths and biblical principles taught by outstanding, Christ-centered volunteers who are committed to the spiritual development of each child.
Our L.I.F.E. Studies groups are divided according to grade level in order to help build a close group of peers. We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. Visit the Children’s Desk and we will help your children get plugged into a class.
Children’s Church is an awesome time of Worship just for kids!. Children K thru 4th grade are dismissed to the Great Room during the Worship Service for special music and a message.
Kid’s Praise (Resumes in August)
Kid’s Praise is an interactive experience that teaches kids to praise God through the ARTS – music, drama, art, and movement. Kid’s Praise is part of the SCC Music ministry. We have several performances throughout each year not only in our church but in our community as well. Kid’s age 5 through 6th grade can participate.
Sunday Evenings 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Flyte Crew is a Bible study designed especially for 4th – 6th grades. We will explore God’s Word, build friendships and have a great time with fun activities. Flyte Crew is an alternative to Kid’s Praise.
Bible Drill (Resumes in August)
Wednesday Evenings 6:15 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Bible Drill is an awesome program that teaches children to hide God’s Word in their hearts. Through fun games and activities, children learn Bible skills including locating books of the Bible & key passages, memorize the names of the books in the Bible and memorize selected Bible verses. Children K – 6th grade are eligible to participate. We participate in Church, Associational and State level Drills each year.
CHECK OUT OUR UPCOMING CHILDREN’S EVENTS HERE.
Safe & Secure
At Simonton Community Church, the safety of your child is a high priority. We pay special attention to not only our building and volunteers, but our check-in/check-out procedures as well. When you check-in your child, you will be provided with a name tag for your child and a corresponding pick-up tag. When you return to gather your children, please present the pick-up tag to the teacher.
Why Parents Matter At SCC
The most important influence in a child’s life is his/her parents. The Church’s level of influence actually comes in third—similar to that of a counselor or extended family member.
Unfortunately our complicated and busy lives combined with competition from TV, Internet, peers and schools can often cause moms and dads to give up and trust the Church to take care of their kids’ spiritual development.
“The Church” has reinforced this idea that parents should leave spiritual training to the children’s ministry “experts” by separating family members to their own age groups as soon as they walk through the church doors. There’s not a sense that the church and family are a seamless team with the same goals. When picking their kids up, parents are usually satisfied if their child has simply learned a little about the Bible and been well behaved during church. And what we expect is often all we get.
But God wants so much more for our children, and so do we. We desire to partner with and equip parents to be the spiritual guides in their children’s lives.
