Sun Valley Kids

Welcome to SV Kids

SV kids is our Sunday morning gathering for kids infant – the 5th grade. Our goal in SV kids is the same as our goal in all the church, which is to cultivate the soul of each child to become followers of Jesus Christ by being:

Gospel-Centered: Teaching children the Gospel of Jesus Christ, not just Bible stories or moral lessons.

Grace-Driven: Using methods of instruction and interaction that are both excellent and age-appropriate. These methods will result in our children seeing God's grace as central in all their relationships; with God, with others, and with themselves.

Mission-Minded: We believe that only the Gospel can change children, families, neighborhoods, and schools. As we minister the Gospel to children, we are participating in Sun Valley’s larger vision of Yakima’s transformation… cultivating the soul of the city.

Your First Visit

We are excited to welcome your children this Sunday! Your visit begins at the SV Kids check-in table which is in the Gym. There is a sign outside to guide you. The sign-in table is through the gym doors under the stairs to your right.

At the check-in table, a volunteer will give your family a security bracelet, explain all procedures and protocols and direct you to the correct classroom.


At Sun Valley, we desire to provide a safe and fun teaching environment for your child at each developmental stage. We currently offer the following classes during our Sunday Seminar hour:

  • Nursery: 0-2 years old
  • Toddlers: 2-3 years old
  • Young Elementary: Kindergarden-1st grade
  • Older Elementary: 2nd -5th grade

During each service we also provide these classes:

  • Nursery 0-2 years old
  • Children’s Church: 3-5 years old. We dismiss the children for children’s church just before the sermon. We ask parents to walk with their kids to the foyer and check them in.
