Vision

Sunnybrook Children's ministry exists to impact children and their families for Christ by providing a safe environment with age-appropriate Bible teaching and unconditional love, leading kids towards knowing and accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  The mission with each and every child is to SEEK those who don’t know Jesus, GROW those who do, and SEND those who will.  Be sure to "Like" us on our Facebook page "Sunnybrook Kidz" for the latest information about our ministries.  To register for any of our ministries, please contact Matt Holmes at matth@sunnybrookchurch.org or call him at 712-276-7915 x34.

Missions
“Sending those who will” is taken seriously throughout the Children’s Ministry at Sunnybrook.  Children have the opportunity to put their faith into action through a special ministry relationship with Liberty Elementary school.  Participation in Kidzone and Basecamp will plug your kids in with local, regional, and national mission events and causes such as Operation Christmas Child, Hat & Glove Tree, international missions to HAITI, and more.


New Believer's Class & Baptism

The New Believer's class is for kids 2nd-5th grade who have recently accepted Christ and want to dig deeper into their faith. This one hour class is held on a weekday evening and there is a strong emphasis on walking kids through the gospel message, spiritual growth, prayer, fellowship, evangelism, communion, baptism and more.  Parents are strongly encouraged to attend so they can support their child as they learn and grow in Christ.  After completing the class, your child will be given the opportunity to publicly profess their faith through immersion baptism at a Sunday morning church service.  For more information about this class, contact Matt Holmes at matth@sunnybrookchurch.org
