At SWC, we are excited about ministry to children, and we’re passionate about assisting you in their spiritual growth and discipleship. There is nothing boring about life with God, and we want children to experience the great adventure found in embracing His purposes for them and His love in their lives. Our Children’s Ministry department is led by Lenny Corliss, our Children’s Pastor, and Bill Harper, Pastor of Family Ministries and Director of Early Childhood Ministries.
Each Sunday morning at 10 AM, elementary-aged children meet in room 204 for their worship service. His Kidz is a high-impact worship service designed specifically for kids in first through sixth grade. This children’s church provides an age-appropriate service, including Bible lessons, praise and worship, puppet skits, dramas, Bible quizzing and object lessons. It’s our goal to make their time in His Kidz one of their favorite things they do all week, while impacting them with the truth of God’s Word and His incredible love for them. Join us in the His Kidz’ auditorium this Sunday.
Babies and toddlers gather in the 300 building, the first building south of the sanctuary. These precious little ones are served by a dedicated staff of fun and loving teachers who lead them in songs, playtime and visual learning.
Creative arts are a powerful way to express the message of the Gospel. The UPS (Uniquely Presenting Salvation) Drama team is open to students in 7th-12th grade, and they’re led by Tim Bakies. During the school year, UPS meets for practice on Wednesday nights at 5:30 PM in the main sanctuary.
Kids Thrive every Sunday at SWC! Ministry Through the Arts offers children in K-6th grade an opportunity to develop their creative gifts for God’s glory. This program offers ministry training in Worship Dance or the Chosen Kids’ Choir, Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM in the His Kidz auditorium, room 204.

We have a great group of women at SWC who come from different backgrounds and face different challenges, yet we find our common ground in Christ. Tuesdays at SWC are about sharing God’s Word and sharing life together.
