"Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs."

Mark 10:14


Our purpose is to share the good news about Jesus Christ with children, and to help them grow as His disciples.

It Takes A Congregation

"Do you, the members of this congregation, in the name of the whole church of Christ, undertake with these parents the Christian nurture of this child, so that in due time she/he may confess faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior? Will you endeavor by your example and fellowship to strengthen her/his family ties with the household of God?"

--- Congregational Vows at Infant Baptism

Children are valued members of the family of believers at South Highland Presbyterian Church. As evidenced in our Baptismal vows, the staff and congregation are committed to the Christian nurture of our precious children, and we seek to welcome and encourage them in their spiritual growth as members of the household of God.

Prayer and Prayer Concerns

The Children's Ministries Committee, Discipleship Formation, and SHPC staff are praying for our church's precious children! If you would like to publish prayer requests on our website, or if you have private prayer requests, please e-mail Katya O'Leary and specify how you would like them handled.

Check out our Joyful Noise Wednesday Night group beginning to pray with their hands to the 23rd Psalm.

These special movements have been created by the children themselves!
