At Southwood we have a Children’s & Youth Program for you!
Children’s Ministries begin with babies up to 35 months, cared for in our Nursery Sunday mornings by our wonderful Nursery Volunteer Teams: Mary Harper & Susan Bowles and Susan & Miranda Reid. Pagers are available so you can enjoy the service without worrying about your little ones!
At approximately 3 years, students enter our Preschool/Kindergarten Class, taught by our terrific teacher, Heather Myers. She is thrilled and excited to share God’s love and teachings through hands on activities using a wide variety of methods such as music, crafts, stories and games.
Students Grades 1 through Grade 6 take part in our interactive Sunday Program: 252 Kids. Kids worship together and hear our weekly story in ‘Large Group’ and then head off to age-based ‘Small Groups’, led by our amazing Students Leaders. Small Groups are a great opportunity to grow in faith by discussing the weekly story and participating in activities and discussions.
Grades 7 through 12 students are welcomed into our youth program, led by Youth Pastor, Riley Harper. Check out our all new Youth Booth section at the back of the Sanctuary! Many students in this age group participate in our Student Leadership Team on Sunday mornings and then join Riley and other students who have attended the main service to have a great discussion called “REWIND.” This is a great chance for students to share what they experienced in worship or what they taught in 252 Kids and then discuss how they can apply it to their lives.
