We highly value kids, both within our church and in our community. We have age-based groups for Nursery-Preschool and Elementary school.
We also are deeply committed to serving kids who are impacted by Foster Care.
Neighborhood Kids is our elementary school ministry that takes place during our Worship Celebration. Our Elementary schoolers stay with us for the beginning of the Worship Celebration, and then are dismissed to Neighborhood Kids so they can learn about the Bible in a way that is easier for kids to understand.
Once they get there, they sing a few songs, play games, discover more through a Bible lesson, and break up into age-specific small groups where they continue to learn more.
Our elementary schoolers join us for communion at the end of the Worship Celebration on the first Sunday of each month. In addition, we have family services, from time-to-time, so our kids can stay with their parents and be together as a church family.
Nursery (Infants-Preschool) is available each Sunday during the Worship Celebration. We ask that all parents who drop their child off sign in and sign out so we are able to find the parent should any need arise. Parents can drop their children off at 10:20. Each week the kids are read a Bible story and are able to enjoy age-appropriate toys. Nursery is finished each week at the end of the Worship Celebration.
It's important to you, and it's important to us. We want to make sure that not only are your kids having fun and learning about God, but that they're safe. So we've developed a few procedures that we follow to make sure they're in a safe environment. For example, we run a comprehensive background check for all of our adult volunteers. And, we always are sure to have at least two adults present at any church-sponsored function.

Shiloh Neighborhood Church plays a key role in Sonoma County's Royal Family Kids Camp and Club. A coalition of churches provides a week of fun and community for local foster kids, where they learn about God's love for them. The week long camp takes place each summer and training takes place in the Spring.
A monthly club and mentoring program enables us to develop even stronger relationships with some of the children. A number of the leaders of RFK are part of Neighborhood Church and we strongly support its work in our community. To learn more, please email us or visit the RFK website.
