Kid's Worship: During
the 9:00am Worship Service, we offer an alternative worship experience
for children grades K5 through 6th grade. Children are engaged through
music, drama and Biblical teaching.
Sunday School: Following children's church, the kids go to grade-level Sunday School, where they continue to learn about God's Word and the impact it can have on their lives.
Sunday School is provided at both hours for infants - K4
Children's Handbells: When children reach second grade they are eligible to participate in the
Children's handbell program. Students learn how
to properly hold and ring a handbell, how to read handbell music, and
the basics of working together as an instrumental ensemble. Once
concepts are mastered, they share what they have learned by
contributing to the worship services. Handbells meets Wednesdays, 5:00pm through the school year.
Children's Choir is available from age four through
grade five. Musical and spiritual instructions are core elements as we
train children to worship the Lord and grow in their understanding of
Jesus Christ. Get your children involved in Children’s Choir
ministry...it can change their lives forever! Choirs meet Wednesdays, 6:00-6:45pm through the school year
Children's Missions: After Children's Choir they move to RAs and GAs to learn about missions and missionaries serving God all over the world. We do projects and have guest speakers to help reinforce the importance of sharing God's Word. Mission groups meet 6:45pm-7:30pm though the school year.
VBS (Vacation Bible School) is a very popular
Summerville Baptist Church summer week long event for Christians and non-Christians alike. With a different theme each year (medieval castles, space, the Old West, etc.) children can explore and learn about Jesus. There is always a
connection between God and the theme, allowing kids to discover God in a
creative way. VBS includes music, games, snacks,
crafts, skits, and, of course, Bible lessons. We encourage kids to invite all their friends!
We partner with UPWARD at Summerville Baptist Church, to provide athletic activities for boys and girls, grades K-5 to 12th grade. Basketball is offered to both boys and girls as well as girl's cheerleading. Each child has a short evaluation of basic abilities in an effort to properly equalize teams. The program includes uniform, games, gifts and end of season Celebration.
For more information, contact the Upward Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or the church office.
Summerville Baptist Church regularly holds Family Events. Ice Cream Socials, Trunk or Treat, Easter Celebration, and Back to School Bash are some of the activities to allow our families and children to have fun while we get to know each other.
