We want your kids to have the same kind of experience that adults have at South Grove Church, in a way that is fun, relevant, and easy for them to understand.

At South Grove, we believe Jesus has called us to cultivate a community of kids who know and experience that God is real, living, and active. We want them to learn how to follow Jesus in a safe, fun environment, and to build strong friendships with other kids. We want Jesus to transform boys, girls, and their friends into the likeness of Jesus Christ.

We know family plays the most important role in the discipleship of children, and we want to be a place where families learn, grow, and find encouragement.

Stephanie Marks

Volunteer Kid's Church Director

Stephanie is responsible for our kid's church program including curriculum and scheduling and training volunteers. Stephanie is married to her husband, Amram. She has a degree in dance and has instructed dance classes for adults and kids. She loves to read, watch TV, and play with her dog in her free time.

Our classrooms include the following components, tailored for each age group:



Beginning at 18 months, we use a selection of Bible-based curriculum to provide a fun, engaging, and age-appropriate way for the kids to learn God's truth from the Bible. As children grow up, we help them learn how to apply God's word to real-life situations and challenges.



We want your kids to build great friendships at South Grove - the kinds of friends who will encourage and strengthen them as they develop in their relationship with God.



We believe it is important to model and teach kids how to pray and expect God to impact them. We hope that this will be just the start of your kids learning to talk to God.



Our classes will worship at a level appropriate to the child's stage of development. Kids will learn modern worship songs like those sung in the adult service.

Our kids program is a safe and secure place where children are loved and accepted because of who God has made them and is making them to be. Most of all it is a place where kids have fun!
