The St. Pete Vineyard
highly values kids!
The SPV is not a church that simply offers babysitting to keep children out of the way during services. Nor do we merely entertain kids with meaningless activities. Instead, we view children's ministry as an opportunity to both teach and model spiritual stuff.
We aim to be a place where your kids
can find love, truth and life.
Vineyard Kid City!
At the Vineyard, we kind of have a saying: "There is no Junior Holy Spirit."
That's kind of our way of expressing our belief that the same God that lives and works through each of us, inhabits and works in our children as well.
We do not minimize the power of God in their lives, and for that reason, our children's ministry is not a babysitting service. Its a chance to invest in young lives! Jesus himself often spoke of the crucial role that children play in God's Kingdom! How can we view our kids as anything less than what our Lord Himself recognizes!
It is the aim and priority of the Kingdom Kids ministry to:
1. Recognize the full power of the Holy Spirit working in our children and cultivate each child's spiritual gifts.
2. Equip strong families.
3. Provide a safe and loving environment for our kids.
Vineyard kids meet in three different groups on Sunday. For the safety of all of the children, each child participating in our Kid City ministry must sign in at our mobile kiosk beginning at 10:10am in our cafe to receive a coded sticker with your child's number. You will need this sticker to pick up your child at the close of service.
Nursery: This is where children begin their faith journey. The nursery is for ages birth-3 years old. In our nursery kids receive loving nurturing as they begin to worship the Lord through age appropriate songs and stories. The nursery is located directly behind the sanctuary.
