Grow, Proclaim, Serve!
“Your faithfulness is growing by leaps and bounds, and the love that all of you have for each other is increasing.” — 2 Thessalonians 1:3 CEB
Grow, Proclaim, Serve! Grow Your Faith by Leaps and Bounds incorporates Bible stories, activities, crafts, media, and games into a full faith experience for children—mind, body and soul. Children will realize their faith goes with them as they grow.
We are thrilled to offer a music program in our Threes, Fours, and Kindergarten Sunday School classes. Each Sunday during the Sunday school hour (9:00 - 9:45), the children will participate in developmentally appropriate musical activities such as singing, chanting, moving, and playing instruments. Robyn Fant leads our preschool music program.
Our Philosophy: We believe that God gave us the gift of music and created all children to be musical; therefore, all children can develop the ability to sing and move in rhythm through playful musical experiences.
Our Mission: Our mission is to share the love of God and the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with our children and their families through music.
We offer preschool children’s worship for children 3-years old through kindergarten in their Sunday school classrooms each Sunday morning during the 10 o’clock worship service.
Children from three-years old through kindergarten need to interact physically with their world. They learn primarily by seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and feeling. Hearing God’s stories, singing God’s songs, praying prayers and experiencing God’s love are all an act of worship.
We look forward to worshipping with your children.
Notes for Parents of Young Children.
SMPC provides secure, nurturing care for children from infancy through kindergarten on Sunday mornings during all worship services. Our infant, toddler, two-year old, three-year old, four-year old, and kindergarten rooms are staffed with professional nursery personnel, as well as parent disciples, providing our children with consistent and attentive care. A child will not be released to a minor.If you have any questions, please contact Kim Lee, Director of Children's Ministry at 704-544-0404 ext. 117; firstname.lastname@example.org .
Children's Community Outreach & Missions
During the 9:00 Sunday school hour, we introduce SMPC supported community outreach and mission projects to our children and families. Community outreach and world mission is a vital and meaningful part of our children’s Christian education as well as their witness to our community and the world as disciples of Jesus Christ. Occasionally we send home information, enabling parents to continue an active engagement with our children’s Christian formation.
Last year, our children’s weekly Sunday offering went to support a child, Roseline, in Bayonnais, Haiti. Additionally, our children learned about hunger; walked in the CROP walk; took snacks and played games with the children at the Salvation Army’s Center of Hope; donated, gathered and packed 39 boxes for Operation Christmas Child; gathered old towels, toilet paper and paper towel rolls, and newspapers and took to the Animal Shelter; and gathered food stuff for Loaves and Fishes. What a wonderful witness to the love God has for us and all creation in Jesus Christ!
