Infant Ministry (Birth-2 years)

In Southside Church’s Infant Ministry, children ages birth to 2 years, learn about Jesus and His great love for them through songs, Bible stories, games, snacks, and play. Our goal is to give children a safe environment to explore, as well as familiar faces of adults each week who love and care for them.

PreSchool Ministry (3 to 5 years)

In Southside’s Preschool Ministry, children ages 3, 4, and 5 are introduced to Bible stories that will captivate them and motivate them to grow spiritually!

We desire to give preschool children a first impression of their loving heavenly Father. The curriculum keeps it simple and fun, repeating one basic truth about God all month long. First Look also helps children understand worship and introduces them to small group time.

The activities tickle all the senses making mastering the concepts a blast. Crazy fun activities to crafts to large group Bible story and worship time to small group Bible time, it’s all part of the plan to help a child believe three key things by the time he’s five years old:

  • God made me.
  • God loves me.
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

Baby Dedication

When presenting your child for dedication, you signify not only your faith in the Christian religion, but also your desire that he/she may early know and follow the will of God. As parents/guardian, you are committing to bring your child up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” Matthew 19:13-14. We are excited to partner with you, as you guide and raise your child in the way of the Lord!

For a Child Dedication, allow a two week minimum when requesting a specific dedication date. Southside Church will make every effort to accommodate your requested date and time, although at times it may become necessary to adjust it, due to service flow scheduling.  To schedule a Child Dedication or for more information, call 804.778.7800 x245 or children@southsidechurchva.org
