Sterling Kids

Ages 2 - 5th Grade

We will be following the Grow curriculum throughout Sunday mornings.

Every week, children will hear Biblical trust through creative and multi-sensory teaching techniques designed to engage every personality and learning style.

Then we will learn to connect that trust with our real lives, biggest struggles, and most pressing questions through practical application and
honest discussion.

Each week, children aren’t just told what God says-They also learn to discover why it matters and how they can apply it to their lives.

What we offer!


Our Nursery will be available from 9:55-12:15 every Sunday for our youngest members through age 2.

10 AM Worship Service

Children ages 3-Kindergarten can be dropped off in room 100. (This group will join us for the Children’s Message in the sanctuary before they start their Sunday school lesson.)

Children in grades 1-5 will start in the sanctuary with their families. After the Children’s Message, Sunday school will occur in room 106.

All children will start Sunday school together in one room, and then split into smaller groups depending on the student numbers.

11:15am Bible Study Hour

Children ages 3 and up (through 5th grade).

Train a child how to live the right way. Then even when he is old, he will still live that way.
- Proverbs 22:6

Kids are at the center of everything we do at Sterling Church!  We want to make sure that our youngest members are truly welcome – not just tolerated – at all of our events!  From time to time, that means things like face painting and balloon animals!

And sometimes it means chalk, space, and the freedom to be a KID!

Church Bear, a beloved tradition from our late Pastor, Rev. Steve Vineyard, is our Sunday School mascot.   He can be found all around the church, bringing smiles to kids and adults alike!  Church Bear has had to stay at the Church for awhile (due to COVID restrictions) instead of going home to spend the weeks with his friends, but he is just happy to see us all together on Sunday morning again!

The United Women of Faith (formerly the United Methodist Women) do an  incredible job hosting our church meal functions, and always make sure to have things that even picky eaters can enjoy!  We also make every effort to be allergy aware, and can work with your specific needs to make sure that you and your child are included in our special celebrations!
