Children's Ministries

(Infant - 5th Grade)

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; 

for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs." Matthew 19:14 NRSV


Our purpose is to teach children about Jesus Christ and instill a life long commitment to discipleship and service.


Although Desert Spring will have no physical worship or meetings until further notice,

we are hosting worship and meetings online.

    for fun activities and updates

    for the family

  • Nursery/Toddler/Pre-school care

    Nursery, Toddler & Pre-School care is offered

    for the 8:00am, 9:30am & 11:00am worship services.


    Sunday mornings the nursery receives babies from newborn – 18 months. 

    The Toddler Room receives toddlers from 18 months - 36 months.

    The pre-school room receives pre-schoolers ages 3 - 5 years.


    The children are cherished as teachers model the love of Jesus Christ through play and exceptional care.

  • K - 5 Sunday School

    K - 5 Sunday School is offered

    for the 9:30am & 11:00am worship services.


    At Desert Spring Church, we know that children are born with an innate sense of wonder and faith. Our teachers and curriculum provide a foundation of experiences on which our children can build a life of learning and spiritual growth. At Desert Spring, children will feel the love of God and want to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.


    At 9:30am, children (K - 5) are taught by grade level. We use a rotational model curriculum that is age appropriate. Each unit takes 4 - 6 weeks to complete, but has weekly stand alone lessons.


    At 11:00am, children (K - 5) are taught in a one room setting. We use a rotational model curriculum that is age appropriate for each student. Each unit takes 4 - 6 weeks to complete, but has weekly stand alone lessons.


    Both Sunday School times engage the kids in discussion of the scripture and message. Teachers lovingly answer questions such as: How does that scripture apply today? Is God saying something to ME in this scripture?  How do I use this scripture in my daily life? 


    Teachers offer activities, games, or crafts to enhance the understanding of the scripture while engaging the children in learning fun. Desert Spring Children's Ministries encourages families to incorporate scripture study and prayer into their daily activities. 

  • Acolytes

    Acolytes are elementary age children who assist with the 8:00am & 9:30am worship services. They light & extinguish candles, shake hands, help with offering, and assist with communion. Acolytes serve on a rotating basis.


    I would like my child to serve as an Acolyte >>
