Children

Did you ever think growing a child’s faith could include cooking, drama, science experiments, and games? Welcome to Sandia Presbyterian Church, where we explore God’s Word in new and exciting ways.

We aim to provide an environment in which children are safe, are taught at an age-appropriate level, and are encouraged to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ. There are lots of children here at SPC, and we strive to have each one feel welcomed and wanted, with a warm sense of belonging to their church family.

Sunday Programs

* During phase 1 of reopening we are not having in-person children, youth, or adult classes just yet. Jennie Jacobson, our Director of Children’s Ministry will continue to email an At-Home Sunday School Lesson for families on Sundays. If you don’t see an email from her, feel free to contact her at .

If worshipping ‘in-person’ this Sunday at either our 9am Traditional Worship Service in our Sanctuary or our 11am Contemporary Worship Service in the Gym, we have a printable Children’s Worship Bulletin and a Coloring Page to bring along. See our main page of this website for the children’s printables for this Sunday’s sermon. While we are in the process of this phased re-opening, we will not be distributing any materials during the services and we will not have Children’s Worship bags, so be sure to bring your own writing and coloring materials for your children.

If worshipping from home this Sunday morning, click this link to access a CHILDREN’S SERMON NOTES FROM HOME activity page for children to use during our Online Worship Service.
