Birth - Little Steps

Sheri Haney

Children’s Director

At StoneBridge, we love to care for the whole family, and we believe caring for your infant, toddler, or 3 year old is of utmost importance. Our Sunday mornings, Special Events, and Weekly Programs are all designed to give nurture and care to your child while allowing you to worship, connect with other parents, and enjoy early spiritual growth in your child’s life.

Change for Tamina

– Every Sunday morning, we station a large Baby Bottle Piggy Bank by the Welcome Check-In Desks. Children are encouraged to tithe their change
and place it in this bottle. The money in this bottle goes to an after-school ministry in Tamina for families who are mostly single parents with low income. The children who attend this ministry are fed, provided clothing, and participate in activities to keep them out of trouble while their parents work. Tamina is a neighborhood across from I-45, north of Oak Ridge.

Sunday Mornings:

Children from birth – 24 months old are in Nursery classrooms staffed by childcare teachers. Our youngest children get consistent, loving care from our childcare staff. These childcare staff members work our MDO program, our Bible Study childcare programs, and our Date Nights. Sunday morning classes are at 9:30 am and 11:05 am. Children may attend one or both hours. These classes are divided by developmental stages- Babies, Wobblers, Cruisers and Climbers. Babies in the baby class promote to a new class once they begin walking.

Children ages 2 – 3 are in age appropriate Little Steps classrooms that are designed for nursery to preschool transition, staffed by childcare members. Children in this age group begin learning about the Bible through a hands-on approach and begin experiencing rotation-style learning activities, such as adventure church, craft, and snack-themed lessons. Children have the opportunity to attend either one hour or both hours (at 9:30 am and 11:05 am).

AWANA: (Fall – Spring) Sunday Evening Program for children age 3 years – 6th grade. AWANA incorporates Bible teaching and Scripture memorization with tons of fun.

Mother’s Day Out:  Each week our dedicated and caring staff offers hands-on learning experiences to children age 8 weeks to pre-kindergarten.  Our Fall Program will begin on Monday, September 11th and run through Wednesday, December 13th.  Registration will be available on Monday, July 24th.  Please click on the above for more information.

MOPS: Mothers of young children, do you need to be renewed and refreshed?  Join us several times a month for a time of food, friends and fun with MOPS – Mothers of Preschoolers.
