Suntree Kids Summer programming 

VBS 2024

VBS Dates: Monday, June 10th - Friday, June 14th | 9am - 12pm

Ready to cook up some fun?
During VBS we invite children to pray as Jesus teaches us in Matthew 6:11; "Give us this day our daily bread." These words serve as a reminder that everything we have comes from God — and that it's by turning to God in prayer that all of our daily needs are met.

At the center of the Food Truck Party is a special food truck called "On a Roll." Here, Kids (or "Chefs") will learn from the food truck's Top Chef, along with DJ Cupcake , about the Daily Specials , which are lines from the well-loved prayer that teaches us to turn to God to meet our needs.

VBS is available for students who are rising into kindergarten through 6th grade. Registration costs $40 per student, with a $100 maximum per family. Registration includes t-shirt, daily snack, crafts, and activities!

Volunteer with Suntree Kids


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 Nursery Wing. 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!

For more information about Children’s Ministry, please contact the church office at 321-242-2585.

Our ministry of childcare is open for non-worship childcare for many of the activities that take place here at SUMC. We are committed to providing a safe, nurturing Christian environment for children ages 4 months to 5th grade.

We ask that you fill out the Childcare Request Form to let us know if you will need childcare for your event. Contact our Childcare Director at or 321-242-2585.


Suntree United Methodist School 

Suntree United Methodist School (or "SUMS") is a school for children starting at age 2 all the way through Kindergarten!

Suntree United Methodist School’s philosophy is, each child is a unique gift from God and will be accepted for who he or she is and will be respected and loved while in our care. Each child will have the opportunity to build positive learning experiences, grow in self-concept and self-esteem, and gain abilities in problem-solving. The children will also learn to grow in the spiritual, social, physical, mental, and emotional areas.
