Early Childhood Ministries

We are committed to partner with parents to build a strong foundation in the life-long journey of discipling their kids. We have classes and a worship service (Wake Up Worship) specifically designed for children ages 0-5 each Sunday. Our little ones meet in a fun, secure area off the main lobby with committed volunteers that create an ideal environment. Sunday morning rooms open at 9:20am and Wednesday evenings at 6:45pm. Click here to hear more about how we do Children's Ministry.

A private nursing room is available to ensure a quiet and comfortable space while watching our services. You will find this room in the hallway around the right side of the sanctuary.

To volunteer in a nursery or preschool classroom, please fill out the online Volunteer Application Form

To register your child in our security system, print & complete the printable Security Check-In Form and return it to the visitor's check-in desk in the Lobby.

  • Sunday mornings | 9:30 & 11:10 am

    Wake Up Worship is a time where the 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s come together during the service to worship together in song, giving, and prayer. WUW is held in the 5’s classroom in the Early Childhood hallway. The teacher of each class will walk your children down to WUW and back to their classroom afterwards for the interactive Bible lesson and teaching time. Parents are encouraged to come worship with their little ones from time to time!

    Download our Treehouse Passport This resource is a way for us to better partner with you as we try and live out this concept of ORANGE (family and church working together to lead kids to a relationship with Jesus). The passport is designed to help inform you of exactly what we in the Treehouse SKM (Sunnybrook Kids Ministry) will talk about at each Sunday service. Plus there are some cool rewards your kids can earn as they work through the passport! 

  • Wednesday nights | 7:00 - 8:00 pm

    Our weekly programming is designed to recap the lesson from Sunday morning and take it another level deeper through critical-thinking questions. Our teachers use this time to unpack the Bible story as the class gains a better grasp on how they can apply the “big idea” in their everyday life. The intent of our weekly programming is to give children multiple exposures to the Bible to understand that God created them to be in a relationship with Him and that He gives us the Bible to teach us how to look like Him. EC programming begins at 7:00pm.  Wednesday night programming resumes on August 21st.

  • Itty Bitty Bible Bit
