We believe children are created by God and are intended to grow into the fullness and beauty for which God has created them. We promise to guide and nurture children and families, in mind, body and soul—the totality of the human creature—into a life of faith.
CHILDREN AND SUNDAY SCHOOL
Children are, at heart, spiritual beings. They ask the big questions of life: Who am I? Where am I going? Why isn’t life fair? What happens when we die? Where does God live?
This year, our children will be traversing through the Old and New Testaments with a particular eye on what it looks like, sounds like and feels like to know and follow Jesus Christ.
Join us in Sunday school at 9:30am.
Children, K-5, will gather in the large end classroom in the Bowman building for a Bible story, song and prayer and then break into two groups -– K-3rd Gr. and 4-5th Gr. -– to explore the theme of discipleship with hands-on activities.

Children are a part of our worship life at Selwyn. While children of all ages are welcome, our tradition is to formally prepare children to worship and to join us at the Lord’s Table in kindergarten.
For our beginning worshippers we offer children’s worship.
Each Sunday, children enter the sanctuary with their parents to hear the call to worship, pray the prayer of confession, hear the Good News, meet their newly baptized brothers and sisters in Christ, and listen to the Message for Young Disciples. We then recess to the chapel.
Once in the chapel, children engage in their own call to worship, hear the scripture, engage in a children’s sermon, sing a hymn, and close with prayer. They return at the offertory anthem to participate in the call to discipleship, celebrate the Lord’s Supper, sing a hymn, and receive the benediction as they scatter back out with their families into the community.
SAPC seeks to fully include children with disabilities and their families in the life of the church. If you have a child that needs assistance participating in Sunday school, worship, fellowship, or mission activities, please contact Kim Lee at . Kim is our Director of Children’s and Family Ministry.
