We have no greater desire for our children than that they would come to know and love Jesus from a young age. Seven Mile Road’s Children’s Ministry seeks to help our young ones grow in their understanding and belief in the gospel through three primary means:

  1. Partnering with and equipping our parents to disciple their children
  2. Providing our children with Christ-centered instruction during Sunday gatherings
  3. Presenting a vision of how the gospel is lived out through our GCMs 

Sunday Mornings

Children’s ministry at Seven Mile Road is available for the following age groups during Sunday mornings:

  • Nursery (Under 2 years old)
  • 2-3 year old class
  • Preschool (Pre-K/Kindergarten) class
  • 1st and 2nd grade class
  • 3rd and 4th grade class 
  • 5th and 6th grade class 

On Sunday mornings, our children join us for the first half of service and attend either nursery or Sunday School during preaching and communion. The 3rd grade and older classes, however, meets from 10:25 – 11:15 (in-between 1st and 2nd service). 


Our Elementary aged classes use the Gospel Story Curriculum, while our Preschool ministry uses the Gospel Project.  Both of these curriculums are designed to help our children understand the centrality of Christ throughout the Bible. A sample Elementary lesson can be found using this link.

A list of the weekly lessons and scripture memorization for Elementary classes can be found here.

Children’s Ministry Volunteers

Nursery and Sunday School at Seven Mile Road is staffed by trained volunteers from our church, who serve on a rotating basis. Your child’s safety is a priority for us. Every volunteer is required to undergo all PA clearances prior to serving.

SMR’s Child Protection Policies

Seven Mile Road Church desires to provide a safe environment for our children to learn and mature in the gospel. Please review our Child Protection Policy to better understand what is expected of all Children’s Ministry staff and volunteers in creating and maintaining such an environment.
