Hi! My name is Browyn King (pronounced Bro-win) and I am the Children's Deacon! Our family moved to San Antonio in 2010 and joined San Pedro shortly after. We now have 3 children and we LOVE the Children's Programs. My kids look forward to their special Kid's Church during the sermon, being acolytes, and our special Wednesday Night Kids program. VBS and mission projects are a bonus!
We're excited to see a large group of children for Wednesdays (5:30 to 7:00 pm), and Sunday mornings are always special. Our church does a great job involving our entire family while we grow in our faith. Questions? EMAIL ME and I'll help you plan your first trip to San Pedro. It's a great place for families with children.

We will be having “Family Fun Fest on Wednesday, September 29th.
There will be a bouncy house, games, face painting, and more!
We'll have burgers and dogs as well as other tasty snacks.
We still need some volunteers so please contact Eric Mapes @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be a part of this fabulous fun!
Children are an integral part of our faith family, and we’re thrilled with the turnout on Wednesday nights to launch our fall semester. We’ve got a great team of leaders who facilitate a wonderful program of music, fun, food, and Bible teaching. There is nothing like this program in our area.
We’ve also introduced a weekly “Superkid” award for children who attend regularly and respond faithfully to the Good News message. We know all our kids are super, so it’s fun to affirm their faithfulness to God and their enthusiasm for church life. Wednesdays continue through the fall from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at no charge to families. Children and families are encouraged to bring friends to this “VBS style” weekly discipleship night.
Also we celebrate creative ways for children to participate in the spiritual life of San Pedro. Sunday mornings we host a time for children by the pastors, and a unique children’s church program during worship. In addition, children up to 5th grade can participate in our acolyte program (click HERE for more information about acolytes).
Calling all children ages 4-12 years old!! Come join all the fun on Wednesday nights starting at 5:30pm! We will start on the playground and end in the Arnold building. What do we offer??
- Bible Lesson
- God's Everlasting Love and Forgiveness
We know that having squirmy kids in the sanctuary can be a handful for parent. While we love having kids in the sanctuary, we understand the struggle to keep a kid quiet and engaged. We are happy to announce that Children's Church programs have been resurrected (Hallelujah) for our families with children.
Before the pandemic kids we offered cloth bags with various activities for children. While these bags are still unavailable, we want to provide kids with a coloring kit that they can use during the service. These kits contain coloring pages and crayons for the child to keep. These kits are to help our squirmy kiddos until the Moment for Fellowship and dismissal of children which will happen just before the pastor's message. They will be available in the Narthex, just ask an usher for a coloring kit when you check in.
I know that our adults are excited and would love to spend the service coloring fun pictures, but we ask that these kits be only kids. You’ll have to bring your own supplies.
Parents and grandparents of 1st through 5th graders are invited to put faith into practice on Sunday mornings! Join the Acolyte Team and lift high the cross to help other faith family members of San Pedro focus on the worship of Jesus Christ. Acolytes light the candles at the beginning of worship, carry in a Bible, and assist with other worship elements as their reading and comfort levels permit. Experienced acolytes can serve as team captains to mentor the younger and new trainees.
If you would like to sign-up or if you have any questions about the Acolyte Ministry, please contact contact Browyn King at 210-288-7320 or email@example.com. We are excited about training the next group of future servant leaders as Acolytes. It is a special way for young people to serve God and church.
It was great to have folks from every generation join us for worship on Easter Sunday. Family is folks of all ages. Children, Grandchildren, Great-Grandchildren, Parents, Grandparents . . . that's what family is.
As we return to in person events, let us be mindful of making space for new family members. Somebody may be sitting in your seat when you show up, be gracious and kind and mindful of what it is like to look for a new church home. They want to be family, too. Hospitality takes all of us, of every generation, to make folks feel like they've come home.
We're in a unique time in history. People are thinking about routines again, and that includes looking for a church. We've had several new guests and folks tell us they're ready to join our church. Let's do our part to make everybody, of every age, feel welcome - even if they're sitting in your seat.
