Suntree Kids Mission Statement:
Equipping families to be followers of Jesus who love God, love each other and love our neighbors in extraordinary ways.
We are so happy to Worship with you on Sunday! Please register using the link below.
Summer of Creation: Water- August 3rd, 9:30am - 12pm
Students will learn about the water and marine life around them, as well as how to take care of it as good stewards of God's creation. Weather permitting, there will be outdoor water games, so students should bring a bathing suit and change of clothes, plenty of sunscreen, and other things needed for a day full of water.
Students are invited to come in their swimsuits and to bring their own towel, sunscreen, and any other water supplies that they would like. Water shoes or sandals with straps are encouraged! We will spend the day outside playing tons of fun games!
Please wear supportive bathings suits that you feel comfortable running and playing in! Volunteers are asked to wear suits that cover the majority of their torso and bottoms (the better to wrangle kids with), regardless of gender.
ONLINE MINISTRY OPTIONS
We will continue to provide online ministry videos for you to do together as a family every weekend. We'll also have activities via Facebook (click on the Facebook icon for a direct link). Please don't hesitate to reach out to us at any time. We're praying for you!
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.
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.
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.
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!

Each child will have the opportunity to build positive learning experiences, grow in self-concept and self-esteem, and to gain abilities in problem solving. The children will also learn to grow in the spiritual, social, physical, mental and emotional areas.
