SHINE Children's Ministry is an exciting and dynamic program for kids in kindergarten through fifth grade. Whenever you arrive on campus for activities or services, stop in at the Welcome Center in the Family Life Center (That's the metal two-story building at the back of our campus.) to sign your kids in.

Fall Festival - October 31st 6-8pm
Our Fall Festival is one of our largest events that we host for our community! We will have games, food, inflatables, and of course ... CANDY! This event is volunteer-driven, so if you are able to serve at the event, please sign up online. Even if you can't serve in person at the Fall Festival, you can help us by donating candy for us to pass out to those who attend. Bring new, unopened, bags of candy to church and drop the in the black tubs in the cafe anytime before October 31.
Child Safety and Security
Providence Baptist Church takes the safety and security of children very seriously. Each worker in our children's and preschool ministry areas must undergo a background check. Furthermore, we use a secure computer check-in system to ensure the safety of our children. If you are a first-time visitor to the church, please take a moment to register your child by clicking on the KidCheck logo.
Children's Weekly Schedule
Grow Groups—Sunday 9:00am and 10:30am in the Family Life Center (FLC)
Children in kindergarten through 5th grade meet for large group worship with music and skits to introduce the "Bottom Line" for the week. Afterwards, break into grade-based small groups to hear the day's Bible lesson and learn how to apply it to real life.
NOTE: Children are welcome to participate in Grow Groups at both 9:00am and 10:30am, and we offer different curricula for each hour to accommodate those children who need to do so. However, older children are strongly encouraged to attend the "big church" worship service with their parents — observing adults in worship and participating in the same is an extremely valuable component of spiritual formation.
Children in Action Missions—Wednesday 6:30pm in the Family Life Center (FLC)
Children meet to learn about missions and what it means to be a missionary in the world around them. Not only do they learn about missionaries in many different countries, they learn about how they too can spread the love of God in the world.
Everything that SHINE does — Sunday Worship and Small Groups, Wednesday Go Groups, and special events — is designed to reinforce or teach one of our three key values for SHINE:
Want to Get Involved?
SHINE Children's Ministry relies on God to teach and care for our children through volunteers from our church body. Christ taught his disciples to do what they knew best, and above else, to trust in him. From feeding the multitudes to rowing across a lake, when we do our part and trust in God, he works through us and ultimately grows our faith. You needn't have some special set of skills in order to positively impact the children in our church — merely a love for young souls and faith that God can and will supply what you need to serve in this capacity. Please contact Jennifer Pyne firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to start the volunteer process.
