“Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” Mark 10:14
The vision of F.I.S.H. (First I Seek Him) Children’s Ministries at SACPC is to partner with parents, that EACH child from birth through fifth grade will know that God loves them and invites them into the Body of Christ. In order to accomplish this mission together, we need to reflect God’s love in all we do and to teach our little ones both the how’s and why’s of seeking God first in their lives. This will help build strong faith foundations for life.
“Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be give to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
We believe that each and every child is a gift from God, and we welcome friends, visitors, grandchildren, and the community to come experience His unconditional love. Some programs/events may require prior registration.

The purpose of the nursery at SACPC is to provide a safe, loving, fun, and comfortable environment for young children under the age of 4. To accomplish this, our workers will walk, rock, read, feed, and play with the children to insure that they are content. We want to provide the best love and care possible. To create a safe and secure childcare experience, the nursery uses a pager system and a thorough check-in process. Church families and nursery workers both dedicate their time to loving the nursery children.
