Interim Children’s Director
The Seaside Ministry is here to help 1st through 4th-grade students go “overboard” with Jesus. Our goal is to win kids to Christ at an early age and teach them to broaden their understanding of Biblical Truths. This is accomplished by focusing on the characters in the 12 Eras in the Bible and presenting them chronologically. We have structured our teaching environments from snacks to crafts and even games to help foster a child’s understanding of the Bible as a whole. Each week is designed to deepen children’s knowledge of God’s character, His divine attributes, and His plan for mankind.
Our team of volunteers has been prayerfully hand-picked and invited to join us in teaching and training alongside you as we seek to influence these young lives to follow Christ and live by God’s Word.
Weekly Mission Giving Back
Every week during class, children have the opportunity to give to an offering that goes directly to support the Children’s Ministry Camp Scholarship Fund. Also, throughout the year children have the opportunity to give specific items that are needed through Date Nights and special events, and to participate in car washes to benefit the Food Pantry.
Sunday morning classes are at 9:30 and 11:05am.
We encourage all children at this age to attend service at 9:30am with their family and then attend class at 11:05am.
Curious about what we teach and why? Watch this video:
AWANA: (Fall – Spring) Sunday Evening Program for children age 3 years – 6th grade. No other program hides God’s Word in our young students hearts more than AWANA. Kids join us on Sunday Nights during the school year for Game Time, Handbook Time and Counsel Time. Structured in a club format much like Scouts, kids win weekly, monthly, and yearly awards all centered around making sure every young boy or girl is fully equipped for every good work God has prepared for them to do.
JAM Choir: (Fall – Spring) JAM is a choir directed by Lisa Hassler for 6 – 14 year olds. This choir is scheduled on Sundays from 3:00pm – 4:15pm in the Lodge, upstairs in the main building. We meet during the school year with a break in the summer.
Baptisms: At StoneBridge, we believe in a Believer’s Baptism, which means that a child must be old enough to make a decision to follow Christ. We also believe that parents are the best determiners of a child’s heart to follow Christ. Parents will find a “Leading Your Child to Christ” booklet located in the Children’s Building or in Guest Services or download it here. Parents need to go through this booklet with their child. There is a page in the booklet for the child and the parent to sign. After completing the booklet with your child, please email Jessica Kelley. After emailing Jessica, a parent and the child need to bring the signed paper to her. Jessica will then register the child for baptism.
