Children have an important place in God's Kingdom. We aren't just training them for the future, they are part of God's Kingdom now. 

We love children at Palm Valley Lutheran Church, and we want to teach them about the Bible and God’s love in a way so they can understand and experience it.

At Palm Valley, all children are welcome. All children are loved. Each one has a God-given purpose. Every girl and boy is loved by God and their sins are forgiven through faith in Jesus. We want to help children discover these truths.

We offer age-appropriate programming and events to help children grow in their faith.



Sunday School

We have Sunday School for children ages 2 through elementary school every Sunday morning at 10:15 a.m. We have a nursery for children newborn to 23 months.


JAM (Jesus and Me) meets during the school year on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30 p.m. for kindergarten through 5th grade. The children hear Bible stories, make crafts, play games and sing songs.

My kids love to go to church and I’ve seen their relationship with God grow tremendously over the past few years. Their willingness to give and enthusiasm for serving warms my heart.  I love that Palm Valley invests so much into its youth.

Shelley Blanco

We take our grandkids to JAM. They love the crafts and fun games, and the Bible lessons are understandable for their ages. This is wholesome Christian fun and learning.
