Youth & Families

What does a week in the life of a family at South Church look like?

During the program year, each week brings new opportunities for connection, spiritual formation & fun! See below.

Summers are a little quieter but kick off with Vacation Bible School for ages 2 and up followed by Summer of Service for middle/high schoolers.

Joining us on a summer Sunday for worship? Kids are always welcome and younger ones should grab an activity bag in our entrance space.

Infants through Elementary Aged Young Ones

On Sunday’s during worship, children have a chance to play, pray and learn together in our Nursery (ages 4 and under) & Sunday School (pre-K through 6th grade). Families gather together in the sanctuary for worship and then kids are dismissed to Sunday School during the passing of the peace.

At our Wednesday Homework Club program (4pm-5pm), children (k through 5th grade) have a chance to work on homework and other activities before Nectar (K-2nd Grade) & Hive choir (3rd-5th grade) meet at 5pm-6pm. See below for more information on music opportunities.

Both our Sunday & Wednesday programs foster engaging environments that provide kids with opportunities to have fun, make friends and participate in creative activities that help them learn about God. At the end of June, we host our annual Vacation Bible School.

Middle & High Schoolers

During the program year, once a week our Middle School and High School youth groups meet for fun, reflection, and relaxation. Students also have the opportunity to participate in our choir and music program. We also offer a week long high school mission trip during April school vacation and a shorter weekend mission trip during the year for our middle schoolers. During the summer, we invite this group to participate in our award-winner Summer of Service program.

The HIGH SCHOOL MISSION TRIP is an opportunity to serve our neighbor, learn about our innermost selves and build a transformational relationship with God. No matter where you are on your faith journey, this is a time to reflect, build community and meet the face of God in a neighbor you’ve never known before. We ask that everyone come to this week with an open mind and an open heart, ready for a week of love, community and service!
