Children are a gift from God

We seek to share Christ’s heart for children by caring for kids well. Our committed service team love Jesus, are great with kids, and want to support you as parents. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for any child regardless of age, gender, ability, class, or ethnicity. We welcome children with special needs. On Sundays, we will help your child learn about Jesus from the Bible in a fun, interactive, and age appropriate way.

Sunday Mornings

In the lobby, before the service, you can register your child at our St. Pete’s Kids check-in area. Look for the signs or ask one of our friendly serve team members to direct you. There will be a St. Pete’s Kids team member at the table to sign your child(ren) in and to answer any questions.

Our check-in begins 15 minutes before the service. After checking your child(ren) in you can take them directly to our nursery, where all the children worship together before splitting off into the different age groups. During Kids’ church we provide a nut free snack, and ask that no outside food be brought into the children’s rooms. You can pick up your children from the children’s room after the service, or before communion (if you’d like them to receive communion, which is at each family’s discretion).

What about infants?

When we say we love kids, this includes babies. Babies are awesome. Nursing mothers are welcome in the service. For more privacy you are welcome to head out to the lobby where we have a video feed of the service and comfy chairs, a change mat, and a play area with some baby toys. When your baby is 7 months old they are welcome to join our Infant and Toddler group.

Safety

Your child’s safety is our top priority. We have a policy of “team teaching” in our Sunday School, meaning that there will always be a team of two teachers present to lead the children. All team members receive safety training once a year. Our Family Ministries Leader makes sure all safety guidelines are followed every Sunday. All of our volunteers have been members of the church for a minimum of 6 months, have been interviewed by the coordinator, and have completed a criminal recored check.

If you ever have any concerns about a volunteer, do not hesitate to contact us.

Serve On Our Team

We eagerly welcome people onto the St. Pete’s Kid Team. If you’re comfortable with children, we provide all the training you need to serve them well. The commitment is to serve once or twice a month. Families who consistently drop their child(ren) off at St. Pete’s Kids are requested to serve once a month and need to complete the application process too.
