Grow Zone

 

Our vision for Grow Zone at South Potomac Church is to provide a safe, developmentally-appropriate and fun place for children to grow into fully-developed followers of Jesus Christ.

A word about safety:  We understand that when you leave your child with us in Grow Zone, which runs concurrently with the adult services, you are entrusting us with your greatest treasure. Therefore, we have safety protocols in place that include background checks for all workers, randomly generated pick-up tags and a paging system to reach you quickly if your child needs you.

Nursery - Seedlings

Ages six weeks to 33 months
Our nursery is divided into two classes:

  • Babies – for infants through children who are steadily walkin
  • Walkers – for children walking up to 33 months

 

Our nursery is staffed with professional, caring adults and teens who provide a safe and secure environment conducive to the child’s physical, social and spiritual growth.  When you are confident in leaving your baby in the care of our staff, then you are able to worship with a sense of security.  We have taken great care to prepare our nursery rooms to be the best environment for your baby with age-appropriate toys and an opportunity to interact with others. As we hold the babies we pray for them to receive all that God has for them in life.  We believe every child we pray for will be touched by God. South Potomac considers the nursery to be an important area of ministry, both for the parent and the child.

Parent and Baby Dedication

Parent and Baby dedication is scheduled periodically throughout the year.  Please email Children’s Ministry Director, Kathy Purves for details.

 

Preschool - Sprouts

Ages 3 through 5

During services, your child will be in the care of trained volunteers and SPC staff members, all of whom meet required background standards.

Our goal is to encourage preschoolers in a growing, loving relationship with Jesus Christ in an atmosphere where they feel a sense of belonging.  We present biblical learning materials with a hands-on approach in order to establish an active faith in God and His Word in the hearts of the children.  We teach the simplicity of the Gospel through a variety of stories, crafts, Bible action songs and other activities.  Every lesson taught reinforces Bible truths.  Children can also be ministered to individually during this time.

Elementary School - Greenhouse

Grow Zone Greenhouse offers a place where children from Kindergarten through fifth grade can discover and develop a passion for God.  Through worship, teaching, and a variety of fun activities, children are exposed to God’s Word and challenged to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We have a large group lesson and then break into grade-based small groups where the children can connect with a leader, one another and God.

Our children’s services are fully staffed with adults and high school students who are committed to teaching and ministering to children.  You can be confident that your child is well-cared for and having a great time learning about God while you worship.
