St. Paul's Kids

Ministry for birth to 11 years old.

Have Kids?

No worries, we've got you covered. St. Paul's Lawton offers programs for kids who are 6 weeks old through 5th grade.

We believe this is not just babysitting - it's leadership development. At St. Paul's, we focus on raising up the next generation of leaders who will be disciples transforming the world. We are all in at SPKids. Our Director of Children and Family Ministries puts children first. Children are our highest priority at St. Paul's because we believe in raising up the next generation.

What happens with my kids during worship?

Children have a place to be while you are worshipping. 

While we welcome children in worship, we understand that sometimes a parent would like to worship knowing their children are taken care of and being taught more about faith.  We have a nursery for children up to 36 months, and a toddler room for children from 3-5 years old.  They learn through hearing and play.

If your kids are 1st through 5th grade, then they can start worship with us in the sanctuary. During the service, all kids are dismissed to follow their trained SPKids volunteer and staff to the children’s church room for the rest of service where they will have a blast!


What do we do when we get there?

Let us know your kids are here!

When you arrive, we ask that you check your children in, so we know who are present, and in case of any emergency, can make sure your children are protected.

Kids check in starts at 9:15 a.m. before Sunday school, and continues through 11 a.m. for the worship service. You can save some time by pre-registering your child above.


Children's Ministry

We believe that children are growing, not only physically but spiritually. Therefore, we offer a safe environment for that growth to take place. We request that children 11 and under be checked in and brought to the children's area by their parents.

All age groups are taught that God's love is for them.

Seedlings (birth to 36 months)

Available during Sunday School and Worship, he nursery at St. Paul’s Lawton is staffed and ready to welcome your little ones in a safe and loving environment that nurtures spiritual growth and learning in faith.  They will learn more about God’s love through songs and creative play.

Lil' Sprouts (3-5 years)

Like the nursery, the toddler room is available during Sunday school and worship, and is staffed and provides a safe and loving environment for your little ones to continue to grow in faith.  Our staff use lessons, activities, and songs as well as play to teach about God’s love.

Sprouts (6-8 years)

This age group will learn during Sunday school and will be dismissed for children’s church during the worship service.  Masks are required for children over 5 at this time, so be sure they have a little one that fits their face well.

During the summer there are camping opportunities available.  Contact Laci Young for more information.

Saplings (9-11 years)

This age group is preparing for Middle School and Youth Group.  We provide age based learning opportunities to teach them more about God’s love.  There is Sunday school available at 9:30 a.m. and during worship they are encouraged to use the “sermon notes” sheet to  help them learn to pay attention during the service.

Camps are available during the summer months.  Contact Laci Young for more information.
