Protocol for Reopening

We are excited to reopen Kids Korner again!  
To ensure a safe environment for our staff, volunteers, and your children, you will find the following:

  • Increased hygiene and cleaning protocols (We are using CDC recommended products and procedures.)
  • Additional hand-sanitizing stations
  • Each room will be sanitized before and after the service
  • We are limiting traffic in hallways and restrooms during and after services.  We have also developed traffic patterns in the building to prevent face-to-face contact while moving through the building.
  • Every Staff member, volunteer, and child will have their temperature taken during entry
  • Anyone with a temperature that exceeds 100.4 and their immediate family will not be able to participate.
  • Staff will continue to print check in badges for each family

As always, we encourage you as a family to do the following:

  • Help your child use the bathroom before entering the Kids Korner area
  • Send only one parent to drop off to reduce traffic in the Kids Korner
  • Follow the arrows that allow for one single entry point and a separate exit
  • Be sure to wash and/or sanitize hands before entering the Kids Korner area
  • Arrive early to allow for extra time during the check in process
  • Participate online if you have had a fever in the past 14 days.
  • Participate online if you don’t feel well or have health concerns.  
  • Participate online if you have shown any symptoms of Covid-10 or if you have been around anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19.

We will continue to monitor the situation and determine any necessary changes. We encourage you to make the best choice for your family as you consider attending a physical location or participate online.

Our Nursery, pre-K, and elementary ministry is a high energy, kingdom centered zone offered during weekend services and various other ministries of SHBC. The Kids Korner hallway is themed as a Kids Town offering an exciting place for children to visit and learn about Jesus! In Kids Korner children worship, dance and participate in age-appropriate activities.


  • Introduction to Worship – A brief intro presents the session’s theme through prayer, offering and fun, exciting activities.
  • Teaching - Kids will learn God’s truth from Bible teaching, study and memorization.
  • Small Groups – crafts, drama, games and exploration discovery reinforce Biblical concepts.
  • Wrap-Up – Kids come together to review the day’s session

If you leave your child in our care, you will receive a badge with your child’s number on it when you arrive, and you must have that badge to pick up your child when you return after the service. If your child is in need, you will be notified using the LCD screens next to the sermon screens in the sanctuary. Our team promises to provide a safe and clean environment for your child to have fun and grow spiritually.

180 Volunteers Needed for birth-6th grade, 1 time per month 2019-2020 We need 108 volunteers to serve a total of 6 times each in 2018. Please reach out to Dan and Brittany Pound if you would like to fill one of our volunteer positions.

Volunteers have a variety of ways to pick up the call to raise a generation for the kingdom. They can serve in a classroom, donate snacks, greet both parents and children, teach, read, play, serve snacks, play music or act out Bible skits.

Jesus couldn’t help but immerse Himself in the lives of children, as seen in Matthew 19:14. “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these,’” and we embrace the call of God to love His children and raise them up to know, experience and love God.

2019-20 AWANA Parent Handbook   REGISTER FOR AWANA   Volunteer for AWANA   Join our AWANA Families Group

AWANA – an acronym intending to remind us that: “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed”, has been bringing the Truth of God’s Word to thousands and thousands of children, ages 3-12, at Spring Hills Baptist for 20 + years!

This year alone we saw children receive Christ as personal Savior, grow in love with Him and His Word, share their budding faith and “hide” hundreds upon hundreds of Bible verses in their hearts that they “may not sin against Him!!” Each week, between 150-190 students & leaders, gather corporately for prayer, verse recitation, games and crafts. Highlights of the year also included our local mission outreach (that collected over $1,900 for missions), visits from Missionaries, Pastors and Special Guests!

Volunteers Needed for AWANA

Awana is an exciting place to volunteer! We are looking for adult and junior leaders [grades 7-12] who will help with verse memorization, serve as crew leaders, teaching lessons and games and partnering in prayer. Strengths include serving, teaching, administration, and a good listening ear!

We look forward to resuming this in person children's ministry in the future.
Please check back in August for Fall Ministry Updates.
