At Southminster we welcome children in worship in a variety of ways!

Children are always welcome to stay throughout the worship service and be part of the congregation as we give glory and honor to God.

However, knowing that some children may have needs to move and engage with God and each other in a variety of ways, we also have these options for different ages:


Children’s Message: Occurs during the 10:30 a.m. service before the Gospel Reading. A time for children of all ages to discuss with each other and their leader one of the Biblical stories or ideas in worship that day.

Nursery: For infants up to 4 years old, we have a nursery with staff and volunteers, ready to care for and play with the children present. The relationship building that happens here is a great reminder of God’s love. The nursery is available for any worship service at the church and is located at the end of the hallway behind the Sanctuary.

Additionally, WORSHIP BAGS are available in the Narthex (entry area of the Sanctuary). The intent of these bags is to occupy youngsters during worship in a reflective and even worshipful way. Feel free to grab a bag for your child and return it after the service ends.
