Shades Kids

Leading kids to follow Jesus 

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM SHADES CHILDREN AND PRETEEN MINISTRY

Due to COVID-19 and in compliance with SMBC's decision to not convene, the Children & Preteen Ministry has postponed all our weekly programming until further notice. Visit shades.org/connect for more information on how to stay connected during this time.


"And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man." Luke 2:52

In the Shades Kids Ministry, our desire is that your children would follow Jesus. That like Jesus as a young child, they would grow both in their wisdom concerning the Word of God, and in stature as they live transformed lives to influence their world for Christ. We do this primarily through Sunday school, Wednesday Nights, and Events throughout the year.

Sunday School

In the Shades Kids Ministry, Sunday school is foundational to everything we do. Each Sunday morning, children meet at 8:00am or 11:00am on the Second floor of the Worship Center to study and memorize Scripture. Children meet in a small group setting as they walk through the Bible chronologically and form relationships with other children in their grade.

Children's Worship

FOR CHILDREN IN KINDERGARTEN THROUGH 2ND GRADE

Preparing children to worship God as a member of the church is an important step in their spiritual journey. This is the goal of Children's Worship in the Shades Kids Ministry. Children's Worship takes place at 9:30am on the Second Floor of the Worship Center on Sundays during the school year.

Wednesday Nights

Wednesday Nights during the School year are a ton of fun! Children have the opportunity to be involved with our music ministry through choir and learn more about the missionaries we support all across the world. Children participate in these opportunities in small groups divided by grade and gender.
