SHINE Ministry at Palm Bay Baptist Church

At Palm Bay Baptist Church our children (infant through 12yrs) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.

We would love to see you and your family visit SHINE.

Your First Visit

Here's what to expect when visiting SHINE for the first time:

First, head to the lobby in the Education Building. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

You can save some time on Sunday morning by pre-registering your children. Click the link below and fill out the form.

How check-in works

Before Service: You can check-in your child at the SHINE lobby check-in stations in the Education Building. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.

During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.

After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

Privacy Room

We offer childcare during service for infants. But we also have a Privacy Room that is in the sanctuary for mothers and fathers with infants. This room is reserved exclusively for parents with infants to enjoy the service in a more private and quiet environment.
