“Let the little children come to Me,” said Jesus. Indeed we want the children to come to our Lord and use us in the process! What more natural way for the kingdom of God to grow than for us to raise our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Stephens Valley Church provides loving childcare for newborns and young children. Classes are kept small so each child is able to receive adequate care and guidance. Safety is paramount and therefore measures are in place to ensure that our children will grow and flourish in a safe, caring environment. Parental volunteers are used on a regular basis, in addition to paid workers who provide a consistent face to welcome our little ones.
We provide a nursery during both Sunday School and worship. However, during worship our expectation is that children ages 4-5 will attend and participate in the first half of the service. During the offering they are dismissed to kinder church where they have their own time of worship while the adults remain in the worship center.

Once a year, usually in the spring, a class is held for children in 3rd-5th grade that are ready to make their profession of faith. Please click [HERE] for the form to register children for the Communicants class (please complete a separate form for each child) or call the church office for more details.
Our fifth graders are blessed to be taught the Shorter Catechism in their Sunday School class. When our infants are baptized the parents vow to teach their children the doctrines of our holy religion.The Catechism class is one way Stephens Valley Church partners with parents to do so.
