children's ministries: Events & Opportunities

At San Marino Community Church we love children! Children are a beloved part of our spiritual community and have a special place in God’s heart. We seek to encourage children to connect to God and one another, making friends, growing in their faith, and discovering their unique role in God’s kingdom!  Sign Up for weekly emails featuring our latest events & gatherings.

  • FRO-YO Fridays with Mrs. Natalie

    Swirlz soft serve, Scheduled FRidays

    Mrs. Natalie would love to connect with your child (3rd-5th grader) for some fro-yo and one-on-one time! I will coordinate a date with parents in advance and send text updates throughout my hour or so with your child. If Fridays aren’t possible for you, let’s see what other weekday might work!

  • VBS Registration is now open!

    summer day camp: August 1 - august 4

    At Treasured VBS, kids, 1st grade through 5th, will discover they are priceless to God. Treasured is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, and touch! Cool crafts, team-building games, dynamic Bible songs, and meaningful mission are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) So mark these dates on your calendar: Monday, August 1st - Thursday, August 4th. The fun starts at 9:00 A.M. and will end at 2:00 P.M. Lunch is provided.
