children's ministry

We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power and the wonders He has done...Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget His deeds but would keep His commands. 

Psalm 78:4B & 7



who we are

We partner with parents by providing faith-building opportunities in an environment that will bring children into a relationship with Jesus Christ, and to become life-changers in their families and community.

kidszone

KidsZone is a space especially designed for kids from birth to 5th grade. Here at SACC we believe that every Sunday should be a celebration. In this spirit, we have endeavored to create a fun environment along with an interactive, engaging program that will ensure kids are excited about coming to church.


We offer complete Children's Programming at both our 9 AM and 10:45 AM services.

  • nursery

    Children birth through 18 months

    Our nursery is designed to be a safe, calming haven for babies where they can experience God's love through trained, nurturing staff.

  • preschool

    Children Toddler through 5 years

    Our preschoolers are encouraged to explore the world God created around them and discover God's love in a safe nurturing environment. This is facilitated through fun, caring staff, and interactive Bible stories, along with hands-on activities designed just for them. 

  • elementary

    Children K-5th Grade

    Our purpose is to develop children into followers of Christ. We are constantly seeking new and relevant ways to help children experience the love of Christ and to join parents in raising them to be world changers! As parents, we welcome your participation in this process. 

GEMS

(Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior)

GEMS is a relationship building club for elementary age girls. Our program offers members the opportunity to experience leadership challenges, serve others, and make new friends, all while having tons of fun! We will accomplish this by studying the Bible together, talking about topics that resonate with issues girls face today, and engaging in exciting hands-on learning opportunities.


Earning badges is an important part of GEMS. We believe when girls understand their unique design, as well as the nature of their designer, they will be equipped and empowered to change the world. Through badge work, our club members will have the opportunity to discover how they are wired. As they learn about and try different things, they will uncover their own areas of success.


GEMS meet on the first and third Tuesday of every month from 6:30 to 7:30 PM.
