Early Childhood Ministries


We are committed to partnering 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 8:20am and Wednesday evenings at 6:15pm. 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.

  • sunday mornings

    8:30 | 9:45 | 11:10am
    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 | 6:30-7:30 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 will resume September 9th.  

  • Sunnybrook Kids, Students & Covid-19

    As we move forward with a modified version of our kids/student programming, here are some general COVID-19 related guidelines we’ll be following: 


    1.) We value our kids/students physically being together in the most appropriate ways considering our current circumstances.


    2.) In light of the current rise and/or decline in COVID-19 cases, we will ask the question: Is this a necessary/wise event to have now?  This thinking will guide us as we move forward with programming or possibly have to postpone or cancel events. 


    3.) Vehicle Travel: As we take trips in vehicles, we will require that everyone wear a mask while in the vehicle. We are also going to be lessening the numbers of kids/students in our vehicles so as not to max out the capacity and give more space between each person.


    4.) Social Distancing with students: We will encourage social distancing at all of our events and will strive to remind them when they aren’t practicing social distancing. 


    5.) We will always be flexible knowing things can change.
