F.I.S.H. CHILDREN’S MINISTRY
The vision of F.I.S.H. (First I Seek Him) Children’s Ministry at SACPC is to partner with parents so that each child from birth through 5th 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 on God’s love in all we do and teach our little ones the “how’s” and “why’s” of seeking God first in their lives. This will help build a strong Faith foundation 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 and events may require prior registration. “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” (Mark 10:14)
CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sundays, 9:45-10:45 am
- 2 to 4-year-olds: Learn of God’s love for them through simple Bible stories and age-appropriate activities. These classes meet upstairs on the nursery hallway, with 2-year-old’s in Room #111. 3-year-old’s and 4-year-old’s meet in Room #113.
- Kindergarten – 3rd Grade: Meet downstairs in the Temple Room for a lively Large Group/Small Group Sunday School. After a large group lesson the children break into smaller age groups to dive deeper into God’s Word. (Located downstairs in Room # 29)
- Club 45: A special class just for 4th and 5th graders. Engaging lessons based on topics pertaining specifically to this age group offer children a “pre-youth group” experience. Located in the Fish Bowl downstairs (Room # 11).

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. Looking for More?
