St. Pete’s Kids exists to create a safe space for each child to know and worship the Triune God together—as kids
The Big Picture
St. Pete’s Kids is a special place. It is not daycare or babysitting or school. SPK is a place for kids to encounter God as kids. Kids connect with God in unique ways: song, play, stories, science experiments, art, stillness, dancing, memorizing, running… and more! Our goal is to create spaces and experiences that help our kids get to know God better.
We welcome any child regardless of age, gender, ability, class, or ethnicity. We are happy to work with grown-ups to help your child find his or her place in St. Pete’s Kids.
Preschool / Elementary
We offer one mixed preschool/elementary worship service on Sunday mornings. Begin your morning by registering your child at the check in table. (Look for the SPK banner.) If this is your first Sunday, we will ask you to fill out a bit of extra paperwork. (If you would like to fill this out before Sunday morning, follow the “Register Here!” link below.)
At 9:55 am, the preschool/elementary room will open. Your child will be greeted at the door by one of our Team SPK members (wearing a blue SPK shirt and nametag).
Every Sunday morning, we remind our kids:
This frames our SPK service. We worship through song, prayer, dance, etc. We remember by reading, playing, and memorizing the Bible. And we make special space for each child because being together is what makes our time with God extra special (see, for example, Matthew 18:20).
The children will rejoin the grown-ups for communion time. The person at the check-in table will provide guidance about this process.
We are not currently able to offer a staffed nursery; however, we will have monitors set up outside of the sanctuary so that grown-ups can participate in the sanctuary service while supervising nursery-aged children. This area will be set up with padded mats, toys, and a gated area.
Although we are not currently able to offer Nursery, please register your Nursery (6 mos–2 yrs), Preschool (2–5 yrs), and Elementary (5 yrs–Grade 5) age children to help our planning.
