Weekly Kids Worship Videos

Elementary Worship

This whole month We’re having lots of fun seeing why friendship is so important. Friendship is using your words and actions to show others you care. All of us want to HAVE good friends. All of us want to BE good friends, too. And I’ve got great news—God can help us be the kind of friends we need to be!

I know it can be hard to forgive when a friend says or does something unkind. But when a friend says they’re sorry, we should choose to forgive. Remember, no one is perfect. You might be the one who messes up and says or does something you didn’t mean to do the next time. Jesus tells us to treat others the way we want to be treated. When we mess up, we want others to forgive us, so let’s do the same for our friends! Because friends forgive one another.

Sunday Morning Children’s Ministry

Our mission is to create a fun and, safe community where children develop a relationship with Jesus Christ! Our vision is for everyone to become a follower of Jesus who loves God, loves each other and loves our neighbors in extraordinary ways.  Suntree Kids is an opportunity for your children to experience just that through small age-level groups and Kid’s Worship.


Nursery Ministry 

The Nursery is available for children aged 4 months-2 years old! It is located in the 200 Building. Your child will be in a wonderful and caring environment with a professional staff that is credentialed through the Dept. of Children and Families, CPR and First Aid trained!

The Suntree Kids Nursery is committed to providing a safe, nurturing Christian environment for young children. Nursery is available for all worship services at SUMC.


Preschool Ministry 

 Children 3-5 years meet in the 300 Building in Room 304. We want to help each child incite wonder and help them embrace a God who is bigger than their imagination. Preschoolers in Suntree Kids are part of a fun and creative experience designed to encourage kids as they grow in their relationship with God. Through games, crafts, and age appropriate lessons, your child will learn the Bible lesson of the day in a small group setting in their classroom.


Elementary Ministry 

We want to help each elementary student to discover and engage in a relationship with Jesus. Suntree Kids Elementary programming is for children Kindergarten through 5th grade on Sundays, during the 9:30 am and 11:00 am worship services. Through games, crafts and age appropriate lessons and applications, your child will learn the Bible lesson of the day in a small group setting in their classroom.

During the hour of the 9:30am & 11am Service, children kindergarten-5th grade will also have the opportunity to experience the large group lesson in Kid’s Worship! Kid’s Worship is a high-energy environment that teaches the week’s lesson through song, games, video clips and more.  

It is our hope that kids leave our building feeling the love of Christ, through our adult and youth volunteers, and can’t wait to return the next Sunday!
