Children’s Ministry

Inspiring children to know and follow God

Robust Opportunities

Our children’s ministry program offers education, worship opportunities, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, childcare and special events for infants through children in the 5th grade.

Our core values lead us in our ministry:


We create a fun, engaging environment where every child is welcomed and loved.



We provide opportunities for our children to develop personal relationships with Jesus, our church community and beyond.



By our example and enthusiasm, we teach our children to love God and other people.





As God is faithful, we are unwavering in our commitment to help children grow in Jesus Christ.



We demonstrate how to serve a world in need.

4th Sunday

Volunteer with Our Children’s Ministry

Each Sunday, it takes a village to staff all of the worship and education opportunities we have for children ages birth–5th grade. We need volunteers for all ages of our children – from rocking our youngest church-goers to actively engaging with our school-aged children, teaching them Bible lessons.

There is a place for everyone. Let us know you’re interested by sending us a message below!

SAPC is such a wonderful church home and could not imagine being anywhere else! I grew up in a Presbyterian church in Henderson, NC and then went to NC State. While at State, I worked here, at SAPC, for two years in the youth ministry. I received a call one day to be the Interim DCM and that was 5 years ago. I have loved every minute here and cannot wait to see what the future holds!
