Children (K-5) dismiss to Children's Church following the

11am Modern Service Children's Moment on Sundays.

Each week, we take what was discussed by Pastor Sarah

during the Children's Moment, and dive a little deeper to

see how we can weave these teachings into our daily lives! 

Also there's games, hollering, singing, dancing, crafts...
YOU 
NEVER KNOW WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO!

During the 'Fifth Sunday' service, that is traditionally called "Youth Sunday", where our youth group leads the church in worship. On those Sundays, we typically stay in the sanctuary so that the children can get to know the youth better!

Shore Kids on a mission!

At South Shore, we will be internally strong in faith and externally focused in service so that we connect people at life's crossroads with God's love and grace.

"What IS Scatter Has a Question, anyway?"

SHAQ.png

I'm so glad you asked! Scatter is our resident monster. As he is making his trek through being a Christian, sometimes he wonders why we do the things we do. Some questions so far have been about why we say Amen after prayers, what that fish symbol is for, what offering is for, etc. 

We post a new question periodically, but you can watch them anytime on our YouTube Channel.

RESOURCES!

Using the Right Parenting Voice

Back to School Gameplan!

School Advice From a Teacher! 

Sometimes, parenting is hard and, we don't always have the answers. Sometimes, we just need a little help. There's nothing wrong with that!

We now have a small resource library in the main lobby!

I will be posting new resources here as I find them.
