Beloved Kids & Youth

At Southside, We Care About Kids!

Welcome to Beloved Kids! This is where our children learn about the love of God, in really fun ways!
We’re here to invest in your children by teaching them Biblical values in a loving atmosphere. We use music, crafts, videos, drama, Storytime and other creative elements to help your child build a strong foundation for their future. Our team of caring staff and volunteers design each experience for kids, so they can have a great time, while they’re learning. Sundays @ 10:30.

Learn in-depth information about our curriculum here!

The purpose of our Beloved Kids programs is to teach your child, in an age appropriate atmosphere, that God loves them, and that He has a plan for their lives. We believe that children are a gift to be treasured and trained, so they will be equipped to accept their individual gifting and create meaningful lives for themselves, the Kingdom and their world.

Babies (Birth - Potty Trained)

Our Beloved babies are our treasures. We welcome them with open arms and joy. We count it our privilege to spend time with these little ones, singing to them, playing with them and showing them that they are safe and valued at church. Sundays @ 10:30

Junior Kids (Kindergarten - Grade 1)

Our Beloved Jr. Kids are definitely not babies anymore; they’re well into the realm of the preschooler, and with that comes all kinds of changes. They’re ready for action! They have transformed into children who take off running when they’re dropped off at church… and often don’t come back for goodbye kisses. Sorry mom. We create learning materials that involve large motor skills, color, crafts and movement…. lots of movement! Sundays @ 10:30

Senior Kids (Grade 2-5)

Our Beloved Sr. Kids are ready to read, write and think about themselves, their families and their worlds in new ways. We use songs, dramas, stories and crafts, to help them learn about the Bible and themselves; to cultivate in them a love for God and a commitment to Him, and their community. Sundays @ 10:30

Youth (Grade 6-12)

The Beloved Youth mission is to help teenagers recognize their intrinsic value as God’s BELOVED and, in turn, learn to BE LOVE to others in the local church and the broader community. This program is dedicated to exploring life’s big questions and exploring questions about God that youth may have.  Its objective is to remove barriers to following Christ and clarify any misconceptions about His message. Teen issues of identity, self-esteem, belonging, peer pressure, and dating are discussed in a safe environment. Meetings include Bible study and practical application, game time, fellowship and of course, snacks!  Other events include retreats, social outings and outreach opportunities within the Milton community.
Beloved Youth currently meets on FRIDAY evenings 7-9pm

Your Kids Are Safe With Us

Our facilities are designed with your family’s welfare in mind. From a convenient check-in process, to the colorful plays capes, we are here for your child. Through our Safe Check In Program all of our volunteers are background-checked and ministry-trained. Our doors & hallways are secured; meaning that your child is safely in our care from the minute you drop them off, to when you pick them up again after their program. Each infant, preschooler, and child are given a name-tag with a security code which is matched to the parent/guardian’s pick-up tag. Allergies are noted, and every effort is made to keep your child safe and happy while they spend time with us.

Get Involved

Other than our Family Ministry Pastor, everyone else you see in our Beloved Kids Programs are trained volunteers – all of those smiling faces are giving of their time and talent. Do you love working with kids? It’s a blast being part of our children’s ministries, and we’d love for you to join the team. If you’re interested in volunteering contact us!
