We love kids and want to make their experiences with us as meaningful as possible. If you are new to Stuart Heights, there are greeters at each campus who are there to assist you with directions and to show where the children’s classes meet.

Sunday School

On Sunday mornings, we provide Sunday school classes for ages three years through fifth grade at all campuses. A traditional approach to Sunday school is our format.

Children’s Church

On Sunday mornings, children, third grade and under, experience a multi-media children’s church, which is held immediately after Sunday school at all campuses. Children’s Church teaches children how to apply Bible concepts and stories to their everyday lives through DVDs, animations, music and graphics that help keep children engaged in the lessons.

Sunday evenings at the Hixson and Soddy Daisy Campuses

Children age two years to fifth grade (age as of August 15) participate in AWANA on Sunday evenings during the school year from 5 pm to 6:30 pm at the Hixson and Soddy Daisy Campuses.

AWANA helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Our program offers a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.

Emphasis is pressed on the children to memorize bible verses and earn patches, play games, and have lots of fun.

AWANA begins at the start of each school year, but children are welcome to join at any time. An AWANA awards ceremony is held at the end of the school year.

Children’s Ministry Volunteer Schedules

Children’s Ministry Campus Coordinators

Each of our campuses has a dedicated volunteer staff who oversees the preschool and children’s departments. If you have any questions, your Campus Coordinators will be happy to assist you.

To Volunteer:

It takes many volunteers to provide a wonderful children’s program.  We appreciate the amazing team that we have at Stuart Heights! The adults and youth who work with our children love them and are building relationships with them. That is why our children want to come to church.

If you would like to volunteer in any area of the children’s ministry, please pick up an application from one of your Campus Coordinators or you may fill one out here, print it and drop it off at the church office.  All applicants must submit to a security background check. You may also contact Dani Vetterick or Roger Russell.
