You'll find exciting, energetic first-class programs for your children, from birth through 5th grade. ShoreKids meets at 8:30, 10:00, and 11:30 on Sunday mornings during the adult worship service (except there is no elementary program during the 11:30 service).
Nursery- Birth through age 2
Our Nursery offers a warm, colorful, and caring environment for your precious ones, with rooms designed for each stage of development up to age two. Our nursery is located in the Worship Center.
Preschool & Elementary
Children ages three through those in 5th grade will be right at home in our own Kid's Building located in the front of our campus. Here we provide exciting programs to captivate your child's heart and imagination. They won't want to miss a single week! We have a time where are kids meet in small groups to connect with their leaders and their friends. This is where we use activities to reinforce the lesson. We also have a large group time where the kids sing and hear a Bible story creatively taught.
For our preschoolers, our goal is that they know that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.
Our elementary kids learn that (1) I need to make the wise choice, (2) I can trust God no matter what, and (3) I should treat others the way I want to be treated. They also learn a monthly virtue like patience or respect and everything is built around that virtue.
The first Sunday of every month (Oct. - June) is very exciting at SFC. At 6:00 P. M. sharp we experience Shore FX, a program designed for parents and kids K-5th grade. Here families learn and have fun together! Comic actors present practical lessons on values like respect, contentment, trust and so much more. Younger children are welcome but must sit with parents at all times. You and your kids will be talking about this for weeks!
Wednesday evening is a special time of discipleship for your older children. Kid's discipleship offers children in 1st-5th grades the opportunity to learn more about God and God's Word in a smaller more intimate setting. You must register your children for this program which runs on a semester schedule during the school year.
