Welcome to our Family Ministries page! The spring has a place where kids can play, learn and laugh together.
Spring Peeps exists to connect little ones to Christ and walk alongside families as they grow in Christ together. Every week Peeps are engaged in lessons that allow them to hear, see, and experience the Bible story. Our goal is for Peeps to know Christ’s love, welcome them to Christ’s community, and exemplify service so Peeps will eventually know Jesus, love their community and serve the world. Every week certified background checked staff and volunteers dedicate time to guide and help Peeps experience Jesus through games, snacks, and stories.
We meet every Sunday evening at 5:00pm at 2424 S Mill Tempe Arizona 85282

Meet Joe Surin, Director of Family and Children’s Ministry
Joe is originally from the Midwest and grew up in the Chicago area. In his twenties, he moved to Arizona. He has been involved in Children’s Ministry at various churches in different capacities. He first believed and trusted in Christ at a young age, through the Children’s Ministry at the church where he grew up. Joe believes in making Children’s Ministry the best hour of a child’s week, doing this in the most safe and healthy environment imaginable.
After graduating from Wheaton Academy, he has received degrees from Taylor University, Bethany Seminary, and Gordon-Conwell in Massachusetts. In addition to desert hikes, he enjoys reading and spending time with family.
Joe and his wife Debbie have been married for 17 years. They live in Tempe with their two boys, Peter, age 15, and Matthew, age 12, along with their dog Pepper.
