Sharing God’s love. Caring for all. Daring to act.
Our Children’s Leaders
St. Paul is committed to keeping all of our members safe, in particular, our children. Please read our policy that helps us achieve this goal.
We take the safety and well-being of children seriously here at St. Paul. All of our children’s team volunteers pass background checks and we follow guidelines requiring two non-related individuals providing care at any time. Learn more about Safe Sanctuaries®.

Sundays at 11am, meet in the sanctuary – (preschool – 2nd Grade)
Near the beginning of our traditional worship, children are invited to gather in front of the pulpit to hear a short lesson from the Pastor. From there, Miss JoAnne leads the group to the Fellowship Hall for a Bible lesson, crafts, and games while their parent/guardians can enjoy a prayerful worship service. Children are welcome to sit quietly with their adult in church as well. On Sundays when Children’s Church is not held, we provide activity bags to entertain Children quietly as they remain with their adult in the sanctuary.
Children’s Sunday School
Sundays at 10am, downstairs preschool classrooms – (Available for all ages)
Join us for a Bible lesson and snacks. Visitors are always welcome.
Toddler and Infant Care

We have a fully-equipped nursery with experienced care providers, cribs, changing table, rocker, and, of course, TOYS! Care is complimentary for parents and guardians as they attend worship and Sunday school.
Children at Awakening Service
Sundays at 9am, Fellowship Hall
During the first 15 minutes of our contemporary worship service, children can dance and sing to our Raise the Praise band. For the remaining 30 minutes, children’s coloring and activity books are provided. And there are snacks! They can grab a seat at a table so they have space to color and snack (quietly, please).
