The Little Pines
Here at the Little Pines, we don’t baby-sit your children on Saturday evenings. We’re here to provide a safe and fun environment that will lead your child to follow Jesus. It’s our honor to partner with you in this task. We operate with four core values:
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.
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.
We don’t want to simply entertain children, and we’re not here to babysit. 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.
We believe that what happens at home is more important than what happens at church. Little Pines is partnering with parents by providing resources, support, and encouragement as they lead their families from where they are to where God wants them to be. Little Pines environments are kid friendly and separated by age. In the event a child is home schooled, we will place them according to the grade that they would be in if they were enrolled in public school.
- Seeds – 0 months to 3 years old
- Sprouts – 3 years and potty trained to Kindergarten
- Saplings – Elementary children who enter First grade by September 1 through 5th grade. The Saplings environment features a large group teaching time and a small group environment where children play games and dig deeper into God’s word.
