Children's Ministry

Ages 6 months—5th grade


Welcome to Children's Ministry!

We look forward to meeting you.

Sundays at 11 am

6 months–2 years

Our  staff and volunteers look forward to welcoming your children! The nursery is open during our regular Sunday worship time, so you can attend the service. Please email us to reserve a spot:  childrens@sunnyvalepres.com

3s, 4s and Kinders (STARS)

Your children will learn about Jesus in a loving and safe environment through age-appropriate activities.

1st–5th grade (Children's Church)

Our Children's Church program strives to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for children to learn about Jesus and the Bible in a fun atmosphere filled with games, crafts, service projects and even movie time! 

A Safe Environment

All clergy, staff and volunteers that interact with children and youth have been screened and trained through our Safe Church Program. 

Children are (always!) welcome in worship

At Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church, we welcome children of all ages as Jesus did — including the sounds and activities that accompany them! There are a number of spaces, "praygrounds," designed for children to experience and participate in worship. Social distancing and covid protocols are in place for your child's safety in these spaces. 

 

All Ages Worship. The first Sunday of the month and Sundays in August, children worship in the Sanctuary with their families. Child care is available for ages 6 months to Kindergarten.

Mid-week Children's Programs

Monday Virtual Small Group

For families not yet ready to meet in person, our Virtual Small Group (grades 3–5) is a fun way to connect with SVPC friends near and far. We meet Mondays, 6:15-7 p.m. on ZOOM.  Join us for sharing (Roses and Thorns), group discussion and kids' choice themes and activities. Each month will follow a theme focus. Register your child here.

Adult Volunteers are needed! Sign up here.


OASIS (Wednesday Evenings)

1st—5th graders (and families)

Wednesdays, 6:15–7:30 pm

October 12, 2022 – March 29, 2023

Introducing OASIS, our new Wednesday Night program! OASIS is a chance to take a mid-week breather and spend time in community with other children, worshiping, participating in activities, and having a sweet snack while children share about their week and what has been going on in their lives. OASIS is about coming together to form friendships, have fun, and relax away from the stress of school and daily life! Come join us this year in exciting new activities and an opportunity to worship God in a new way!
