Children's Ministry

The Children's Ministry is where kids have fun and learn to follow Jesus Christ on Sunday mornings. Solano Church families enjoy singing together in the worship service before the children are dismissed to their classes. 


Koalas: Babies and toddlers

Wallabies: Preschool age children to Pre-Kindergarten

Kangaroos: Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grades

Dingoes: 3rd through 6th Grade

Values

Safety

We will provide a safe environment for children to enjoy. We want children to be safe and feel safe, and parents to rest assured that their child is well cared-for while they are in the service. For this reason, we obtain applications and background checks on every volunteer. Adults are never alone with children, and there are always two adults with children at all times.


Fun

We want your child to have fun! Our desire is to see your child have such a good time they will be begging you to come back next week. We believe creating this fun environment for kids will help children learn more about Jesus. We use games, crafts, props and creative stories to communicate the message, and we think it's okay to have a good time at church.


Truth

We don't want to simply entertain children, and we're not here to baby-sit. We want children to learn about Jesus. Lessons about Christ and the Bible will be age appropriate and will help them understand God's love and plan for their life.


Shepherding

We believe that change happens best in small groups, so we have small group leaders that will care for your child throughout the year. Each week, your child will be in a small group environment with a caring adult leader who will love and pray for them.


Curriculum

We currently use Group's Hands On Bible curriculum for our children's ministry.


Child Registration and Security Procedures


Volunteer Screening Procedures

All SCC Children's Ministry Leaders have a background check performed and go through the appropriate training. Parents and guests who are not regular volunteers must check in with Children's Director and receive a GUEST name badge.


Check-In

Children's Ministry starts part way through the service but please fill out the registration/medical authorization card and permission slip when you first arrive. Parents should take their child to the restroom before checking them in. We will take their child to the restroom, but it's easier to do this in advance.


Check-Out

Parents will pick up all children in their classrooms or children will be walked as a group to their parents by their leaders/teachers.

What is the Youth Ministry?

The youth group ministry is a place for kids, from 6th grade through seniors in high school, to pursue Christ passionately through bible study and discipleship and demonstrate their love of Christ through fellowship with one another and through service. We aim to walk alongside the youth, fostering an atmosphere for discovery and realization of the truth of the Gospel in their everyday lives. 


We emphasize three primary goals in youth group: 


Discipleship

We want the kids to learn what it means to pursue God with unrelenting devotion by instilling foundational Christian values through studying the bible more deeply, interacting with older more mature Christians, and learning how to live a life that glorifies God (Romans 12:1-2). From this groundwork we will foster the development of Christian leadership in the youth. As part of that process, we will teach and emphasize the importance of developing a prayerful and worshipful heart in the journey that is discipleship.


Fellowship

God has called us into fellowship with one another (Romans 12:10) and called us to love our Christian brothers and sisters. We hope to grow and maintain a safe environment where youth can learn to grow in faith together while building genuine friendships through various fun and engaging activities and events. Additionally, we hope to make the youth active participators in all-church events including celebrations, service projects, etc.


Outreach & Service

Community engagement and involvement is important. In response to Christ’s example as servant to the needy and outcast, our youth group will focus on engaging with communities beyond just our own through service projects and outreach events. We will develop the tools needed for sharing the gospel and grow each child’s faith. We hope to equip the kids so that they feel motivated and confident in inviting non-Christian friends to partake in this community as well. If you would like more information or would like to be included in future youth group updates, please contact us.


Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. (1 Timothy 4:12)
