SHBC Kids >> Birth-Grade 5

SHBC Kids is an exciting place where kids learn about Jesus, worshipping Him, and missionaries all over the world. We want kids to LOVE church, grow in a relationship with Jesus, and learn all about ways they can spread the gospel. We offer programs for babies - PreK on Sunday mornings during the worship service and for babies - 5th grade on Wednesday nights.

What to Expect


Every Sunday, your kids will go through a check-in process that ensures their safety during the service. They will then go to their age-appropriate classroom. Classes include:

  • Babies (Ages 0-1)
  • Toddlers (1-2)
  • Pre-K (3-4)

In class, children play and enjoy a hands-on lesson from God’s word. They will also be given materials to help encourage further discussion with their families throughout the week. We encourage parents to take this opportunity to disciple and share special conversations with their children.


We also offer midweek Kids Grow Groups. Just like Sundays, kids go through a check-in process to ensure their safety during their during their program. Classes include:

  • Babies & Toddlers (Ages 0-3)
  • Younger Kids (Ages 4-7)
  • Older Kids (Ages 7-10)

Kids enjoy a time of worship, Bible study, and learning about Christian missionaries. In worship, they experience upbeat songs and prayer time. During Bible study, they enjoy a hands-on lesson from God’s word. In missions, they learn about missionaries all over the world, plus serve in missions projects with the church.


We have exciting SHBC Kids events throughout the year that are open to the church and community. Main events include:

  • Fall Fest - Games, candy, food, and lots of safe family fun!
  • PJs & Pancakes - The annual Christmas Party where we have a big birthday party for Jesus!
  • Easter Egg Hunt - A fun and fast event to enjoy the Saturday before Easter. Over 1,000 eggs to hunt!

During this half-day camp, your child will experience energetic worship, Bible study, hands-on crafts and gizmos, hear stories of real kid missionaries, and play fun recreational games! It's a blast!
