Southside Kids

“If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God.”
-Dwight L. Moody, evangelist

Southside Kids desires to develop kids into R.E.A.L. followers of Jesus. In each environment, from nursery to 5th grade, we strive to provide the beginning of a lifelong adventure of learning who God is, trusting His plan, and boldly living for Him!

Preschool Ministry

Our environment for newborns to preschool age is where we strive to create the first building blocks of a strong, Bible-centered foundation for our children—because we believe the seeds of salvation should be planted early!
  • Safe and Clean – We work hard to make this environment a place your children can safely enjoy their time with our volunteers.

  • Child Focused – Children will enjoy age appropriate activities and stories centered around Jesus, but focused directly on their little hearts.

  • Fun – Children will sing, dance, and learn the Bible—and have fun the whole way!

Our preschool curriculum focuses on these three, basic principles:

  • God made me.
  • God loves me
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

Special Notes for Preschool

What should I bring on my first Sunday?2019-06-24T17:05:52-04:00

Bottles or sippy cups labeled with your child’s name are very important for thirsty little babies. Also, remember to label the diaper bag and pack any items that your child may need.

Will there be a snack time?2019-06-24T17:06:18-04:00

There is a snack time, and we supply age appropriate snacks. If there are food allergies or medical conditions that would prevent your child from having the supplied snack, please let the volunteer know. Providing a labeled snack from home for them to have during snack time would be greatly appreciated. We typically serve Gerber Puffs and Goldfish crackers.


Elementary Ministry

Our engaging time of worship, Bible lesson, games, and small groups will keep your child smiling and excited to be a part of what is happen in God’s kingdom.
  • Engaging Worship – Kids enjoy worship with their leaders, singing and dancing to God-honoring lyrics. We focus on how awesome our God is when we worship in this environment.

  • Exciting Activities – Fun activities with a Biblical message are a staple in this environment. Fun snags a kid’s interest! Once we have their interest, we can pour God’s love into their hearts.

  • Social – Kids will learn the Bible and foster friendships during their small group gatherings. Small groups are the key to making big impacts.

Our elementary curriculum focuses on these three, basic principles:

  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Block 45

Block 45 is a place where an energetic atmosphere is created to impact kids that are going through all the ups and downs of a typical fourth and fifth grader. 
  • INTERACTIVE: Through Small Groups the kids are able to connect with other kids and leaders while creating meaningful relationships that will last a lifetime.
  • APPLICATION: This is where the rubber meets the road. Before our 4th and 5th graders head out, we want them to know Jesus—and be able to apply what they know. We encourage kids to not just sit and listen to a cool message or prayer, but to get involved and discover what God is saying to them. 
  • ENGAGEMENT: Through games and worship, we have created an atmosphere where students can lay down the burdens of that week, have fun, and look to God for encouragement. 


Southside Church would love to have you visit our sensory room for children with special needs on Sunday mornings. We want all children to have a safe and fun experience at church while parents are able to enjoy fellowship in our worship center. Our volunteers are experienced and professionally trained, and they desire for every child to be given the opportunity to grow in their faith. We long to see every family in our area thriving, and this is an opportunity where both kids and parents win. Join us! We certainly look forward to meeting you!

Gravity: Children’s Baptism and Discipleship

Has your child been asking questions about the Bible or maturing in their walk with Jesus? Do you sense they are ready for the next step? Southside Kids wants to make the basics of faith clear and important for every child. Gravity is our children’s discipleship course that helps parents of elementary students walk through this process with their children. If your child expresses interest in salvation, baptism, or any other aspect of faith, please sign up below for a special experience designed just for you and your child:
