Children’s Chapel (Formerly known as Sunday School) is offered for older preschoolers thru 4th grade upstairs during our 10 AM Sunday Worship. Drop-off starts at 9:45 and pick-up is after our 10 AM worship service. Children will have fun upstairs in our education wing Kingdom Doors classrooms with Ms. Jill, Children’s Ministry Director and Ms. Liz, parent and local elementary school music teacher. We’ll do things like play Legos, watch video lessons from our THINK ORANGE curriculum, play games, and enjoy a craft together. No RSVP is required. 

SUNDAY MORNING NURSERY (Fall-Spring)

All children are welcome to remain in our sanctuary with their parents or sit in our play area behind the glass just outside of our Sanctuary during our 10 AM worship. However, Southminster is pleased to provide childcare for infants and toddlers. Let us know you’re coming if you can by signing up HERE or emailing Jill Schiltz at .

If you or someone you know has childcare experience and loves working with infants and toddlers, let us know. We’re always looking for helpers.

Remember this prayer… 

God is with us through scary and hard things. We are thankful that God created our bodies to fight infection and be able to heal. We are thankful that God gives us doctors and health care professionals who help sick people become well. We are thankful that God works in our community as we do what we can to keep one another healthy by washing our hands and staying home when we are sick. God is doing good even when things are hard. Thanks be to God.
