Welcome to STF Kids!

Let us introduce ourselves.

STF Kids is a ministry at South Tampa Fellowship for birth through 5th graders. Our goal is to help families find and follow Jesus. That’s why we work with parents to prepare kids for a lifetime of following Jesus.

Milestone Classes

We want to support your family for significant events like Child Dedication and Baptism. Our Milestone classes are designed to equip parents to navigate these milestones with their children when the time is right.

PreSchool Ministry

During our services, we offer classes for children from birth to pre-K4 at our Ballast Point and Davis Islands campuses during all services. Children will learn foundational truths about God through worship, crafts, games, and outdoor play.

Elementary Ministry

Join our special worship services for children (Kindergarten through 5th grade) during all services at our Ballast Point and Davis Islands campuses. 

Ballast Point Campus: Kids Large Group Worship at 9 AM, Kids Small Groups at 11 AM

Davis Islands Campus: Kids Large Group Worship at 10:30 AM (Elementary-aged kids sit with parents during worship and then are dismissed to their classes.)


Our Awana program at STF meets on Wednesday nights during the school year at our Ballast Point Campus and is open to children from age 3 through 5th grade. At Awana, children engage in fun, exciting games and small-group, discussion-based teaching time. Our faithful volunteer leaders present the Gospel of Christ in an age-appropriate way each week and help children grow in their knowledge of God’s Word.

At STF Kids, we provide support for families with children who have special needs. Our IMPACT ministry offers a buddy system, flexible classroom options, trained volunteers, and a supportive community. Email melissa@stfchurch.com for more information. IMPACT is available during the 11 am service at the Ballast Point Campus.

We prioritize the safety of our children and students at South Tampa Fellowship. Our team undergoes thorough screening and training, and all volunteers who work with kids and students are known members of the church who have completed a criminal background check, child abuse awareness training, and a personal safety screening. Furthermore, no adult is allowed to work alone with a minor in any setting.



Child Dedication

Join us for our special Dedication Sundays, a wonderful opportunity to have your child dedicated during our services at either our BP or DI Campus. Child dedication is a meaningful way to declare your commitment to raise your child in the ways of the Lord, and it’s open to children of all ages. Learn More

Child Baptism

If you believe your child is ready to take the next step in their faith journey by getting baptized, we are here to support you. Contact us to schedule a baptism and learn more about the process. Learn More

Safety, Security, and Cleanliness Guidelines

At South Tampa Fellowship, we prioritize the safety of our children and students. Our team members undergo thorough screening and training, including criminal background checks, child abuse awareness training, and personal safety screenings. We enforce a two-adult minimum in all classrooms and use computer-generated sticker name tags to identify authorized adults. Our children’s area is secured, and we have additional security measures in place, such as an off-duty police officer on hand. Learn More
