Children's Ministry

Ages 6 months—5th grade


Welcome to Children's Ministry!

We look forward to meeting you.

About Children's Ministry

6 months–2 years

Our paid 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. Contact our Child Care Coordinator, Shannon Birdsong at childcare@sunnyvalepres.com

2—5 years (STARS)

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

1st–5th grade (BLAST)

Your kids will have a BLAST at Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church! They will find the Bible is never boring and learning about Jesus is fun. This is a place where lasting friendships are formed.

A Safe Environment

Your child's safety is our top priority. Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all. Read more: 

Children are (always!) welcome in worship

At Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church, we welcome children of all ages as Jesus did. We believe children are integral members of the body of Christ, and we welcome the sounds and activity 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, children worship in the Sanctuary with their families. Child care is available for ages 6 months to Kindergarten.

Wednesday LOGOS Program

1st—5th graders (and families)

September 29, 2021–March 23, 2022

Wednesdays, 6:15–7:15 p.m.

LOGOS is a place to come together to learn about God and experience activities for students to grow their relationship with God and others in the church community. LOGOS helps develop deep roots within the congregation when parents, grandparents, and other significant adults dedicate time to the ministry.


This year, LOGOS will look a bit different. Due to public health concerns, we will not be sharing meals and will have a condensed schedule. Children will still read stories, play games and have special theme nights throughout the year! We will only be collecting registration one semester at a time, as the programming will be adjusted as the public health situation evolves.


For more information, contact our LOGOS Directors at logos@sunnyvalepres.com
