Your child will love to come to SonShine Park! It is the best park around, because at SonShine Park, the SON is always shining! Our Children’s ministry team is committed to shining Jesus’ love so that your child can experience God’s love, learn about His word, and grow up in Christ! SonShine Park is geared for kids to have fun while learning. See below for a quick tour of the “Best” places at SonShine Park. Each class has a team of ministry volunteers who are committed to developing relationships with the children and providing the B.E.S.T.   At SonShine Park, we believe in partnering with parents and we welcome parents’ involvement and input. Parents are welcome at SonShine Park anytime.

SONSHINE PARK (Elementary) 

At Sonshine Park our kids are active participants in learning who God is, developing a real relationship with Jesus, and learning to follow him.  If you drop in our class, you will rarely see your child just sitting as someone talks to them. What you will see is your child learning while he act out a part in a drama or becomes a quiz show contestant.  Pr she may be competing with her team mates in a game or making a craft.  You will probably see him discussing questions or praying in a small group.  Whatever the activity, you can be sure your child will be having fun while learning about God’s great love for us and how to follow Him!  Our elementary children begin in the worship service with their parents and then are dismissed to class prior to the sermon time.

SONSHINE PLAYGROUND (K4-K5)  & SONSHINE PLAYHOUSE (2 & 3′s) 

Children in these classes learn about the Bible and God’s love through a variety of structured play activities, stories, music, puppets, & art.  The Bible truth for the day is reinforced through out all the activities.  Since children at this age learn best through hands-on activities, we provide lots of opportunities to experience learning about God.  Our kids learn foundational Bible truths and Bible stories as they discover that church is a fun place to come and encounter God!

 

SONSHINE GARDEN (Infants) 

We believe your child is a precious blessing from God.  Therefore, we make every effort to provide a loving and safe place for your child to experience God’s love.  Our teachers are well trained and are highly committed to providing consistent, quality care for your child.  Each month our nursery has a Bible theme and your little one will experience music, activities, pictures & stories based on that theme.  Children are never too young to learn about God’s love for them!

BEYOND SONSHINE PARK 

Sunday morning is our time to focus on worshiping God and growing in Him. While worship is the most important thing we do, it is not all we do. Our children’s ministry also includes special activities during the year, including Kids’ night out (Summer), Easter celebration, “Light of the World” night, Christmas Nativity pageant, discipleship classes, and special family events. These opportunities aim to build relationships with other Christian friends and caring adults, encourage living out our faith, strengthen families, and encourage children to bring friends to church activities. Oh yeah, we have lots of fun too!

Security at SonShine Park

Children in all classes are signed in by parents and are only released to their parents. Parents of children age 0 through kindergarten age are given numbered security tags which must be turned in to pick up your child. Your number will appear on the worship screen if your child needs you during the service.   Our lead teachers are well trained and committed to teaching on a monthly rotation in order to provide continuity and opportunities to develop relationships.
