Children & Preteens

Our goal is to provide fun ways for kids and preteens to learn about God’s Word and His love for them! We also aim to support parents and equip you to be spiritual leaders in your homes. Explore our online programs below, and please reach out to our teams if you have any questions.

Early Childhood (Preschool & Kindergarten)


Sunday Clubhouse
(Sundays, on Facebook and YouTube)

On Sundays, we share video messages from Ms. Kristin and friends that include Bible stories and activities for little ones! You can find these videos on our Facebook group or YouTube channel, or sign up to receive them via e-mail. We encourage you to watch them with your kids and talk about what they learned!


Way2Go Wednesday
 (Wednesdays, by E-mail)

Every Wednesday, we provide a Bible lesson and activity that teaches kids about God and His Word. The lesson is written out so you can go through it together as a family on your own schedule. We send this out via e-mail every week, so contact us to be added to the list!


Social Media

Join our Facebook group or follow us on Instagram to connect with us and other families! We share praise songs for kids, ideas for family activities, updates from our ministries, and more, and we would love for you to share pictures of what you’re up to at home. Our pages are private so that all families feel safe to share on them, but please send us a request and we’ll get you connected.

Sunday School & Way2Go Wednesdays
(Sundays & Wednesdays on Facebook, YouTube and E-mail)

On Sundays and Wednesdays, we’ll share videos of Ms. Barbara and friends that include Bible lessons and fun activities for kids. You can find these videos on our Facebook group and YouTube channel, or request to receive them via e-mail. Remember to ask your kids to tell you what they learned!


Social Media Activities
(Tuesdays & Thursdays)

We post fun activities, songs, or resources on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so be sure to connect with us on Facebook or Instagram!

For example, our Flat Jesus Challenge is a fun way to show kids that Jesus is with them wherever they go! Here’s what to do:

  • Download and print this illustration of Jesus from Ascension Lutheran Church in Shelby, NC.
  • Help your kids cut out and color their paper Jesus.
  • Take pictures of how paper Jesus (or Flat Jesus) goes with your child anywhere—doing homework, playing games, eating dinner, etc.
  • Share your pictures on our Facebook group, or share them on Instagram and tag @stonebriarkids!

Junction 56 Sunday Lesson
(Sundays on Facebook, YouTube and E-mail)

We share a video lesson from Pastor Ren and Ms. Jen every Sunday! Be sure your kids tune in to hear messages from God’s Word and how to apply it to their lives as preteens. We’ll post the video to our Facebook group and YouTube channel, or you can contact us to receive it via e-mail each week.


Wednesday Small Groups
(Wednesdays on MS Teams)

Our small groups are gathering online every Wednesday night! These groups are great opportunities for preteens to make friends and to be mentored by caring leaders. If your child would like to be added to a small group, or if you need the link to an existing group, contact Ministry Coordinator Kelly McGuire.


Social Media

Don’t miss out on all the fun in our Facebook group! It’s a great way to connect with other families and discover activities to do at home. We also post funny videos from Pastor Ren and updates about what’s happening around our church, so send us a request to join today.
