StillwaterKIDS

Know God’s word
Invite friends to know Jesus
Develop a relationship with Jesus, and
Serve in the church and community

Nursery care and kids classes and activities are available during Sunday morning worship times at all Stillwater locations. All children are cared for and nurtured in a safe, loving environment, designed to be fun and to foster their spiritual growth.

Kids connect with one another and their small group leaders during our 9:30am service, using Bible Studies for Life: Kids. This curriculum designs studies around the way kids learn best, ensuring that every StillwaterKID has a transformative, age-appropriate encounter with God’s word.

At 11am we engage in Jesus Jam, a fun, high energy worship hour that helps our kids grow in their faith. This service builds on the principles taught in the small group setting offering a large group worship experience for all kids grades K-6. In addition to Praise and Worship, this service includes games and teaching, where kids connect with God and learn to apply Biblical principles to their lives.  

One Sunday each month, the elementary grades serve as the hands and feet of Christ as they complete projects that serve our church and community. Projects include (but are not limited to):

  • Decorating placemats for Meals on Wheels and Kairos Prison Ministry
  • Writing letters for Dayton Honor Flight
  • Creating cards and notes for local nursing home residents
  • Packing care packages for local first responders
  • Assembling gifts for Operation Christmas Child
