Of course! You can certainly keep them with you for the whole service.
Usually, parents use nursery care through the whole service. Sunday school-aged children typically stay with their parents during the singing time and then are dismissed just before the message starts.
If you aren’t ready to send your child to Sunday school yet, that’s fine – kids of all ages are always a welcome addition to the service! Just note that your child would be missing the specially-created content we have prepared for them. At Sunshine Community Church, our children’s ministry is much more than “childcare.” We intentionally structure our programs to help kids learn the Bible, understand the gospel, and put their faith into practice in everyday life.
Since this all happens during the second half of the service, parents are freed up to really engage with the message and the whole family has a chance to grow. The lessons are taught by committed volunteers and staff who serve Jesus by caring for you and your kids. We do our best to ensure that your children will love it and learn a lot!
Our children’s ministry has age-appropriate environments on Sunday mornings as follows:
- Infant Nursery (0-walking)
- Toddler Nursery (walking-3)
- Sunday School:
- 3 – Kindergarten
- 1st and 2nd Grade
- 3rd and 4th Grade
Should you ever have any questions, any member of our staff or any of our volunteers will be happy to help you! Also, if you have any questions about Children’s Ministry before attending a service, please contact our Children’s Director who will be happy to respond.
