B.I.G. Kidz! is our preschool ministry for infants to Kindergartners.  B.I.G. stands for Beginnings In God and we designed it to give preschool children a first impression of their loving heavenly Father. Every preschooler wants to be called a “big kid” and we want them to know they are BIG Kidz! to God and very special to Him.

Our Goals:

We want them to know and believe by age 5:

  1. God made me.
  2. God loves me.
  3. Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

We want them to fully experience:

  1. Worship on their level-to talk to God any time, any place.
  2. Connection at Home: we empower parents with tools to help their family grow closer together with each other and God.

Please come and join us at B.I.G. Kidz! Sundays 9:30 am and 10:45am and Wednesdays 6:15-8pm.



Southwood K.I.D.S. (Kids In Discipleship and Service) exists for kids grades 1-4 to grow in their relationship with God and Jesus Christ. We partner with parents to help kids develop a faith in Jesus Christ that lasts a lifetime.

We commit to the family in two ways:

  1. To guide and equip parents with tools and resources to help them be the primary spiritual influencers in their homes.
  2. We commit to teaching God’s truths every week through relevant Bible teaching, group discussion, and age appropriate small groups with great leaders!

Please join us Sundays 9:30am and 10:45am and Wednesdays 6:15-8pm for Slime Time to go even deeper!


The Edge 56

The Edge 56 exists as a transitional ministry for kids in 5th and 6th grade when everything in their lives is transitioning! We decided to give them a place of their own where they can be challenged, ask questions, be themselves, serve others, and learn to interact with each other. This is done in the light of the Gospel with the prayer that as they are building their identity, they do it following the only person who can save them, fulfill them, and give their lives purpose, Jesus.

We commit to:

  1. Partnering with Parents to give you tools as they transition to the “Edge” of childhood and good communication as we partner in this journey.
  2. Provide service opportunities once a month to “live out loud” the part of the Bible they are learning.
  3. Provide social opportunities to grow as a group to provide a strong Christian support system.

Join us for The Edge 56 9:30am Sunday morning and 6:30-8:00pm Wednesday nights.


P.A.L.S. (Play and Learn at Southwood)

The PALS preschool ministry meets 3 days a week Tuesday-Thursday from 9:30AM to 2:00PM.  Preschoolers from around the community enjoy the positive learning experiences we create just for them.

Our goal is to meet the spiritual, emotional, mental, physical and social needs of each child in a loving environment.  We use both large group activities (stories, books, games, finger plays) and small group activities using 9 learning centers: art, blocks, home-living, nature, books, music, puzzles and manipulatives.  We also have a music/motor skills teacher.

If you would like more information about our weekday PALS ministry, contact Nikkoli Keigley at (918) 665-3744 or email her at
