Welcome to Spring Peeps, 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 Tiffany | Children’s Ministry Intern
Tiffany Nelson will be serving as Children’s Ministry Intern from Jan1, 2017 thru June 30, 2017 here at The Spring. She was born and raised in Spokane, Washington where she fell in love with ministry. Ever since she was a little girl, Tiffany loved attending Sunday School and learning about Jesus and all that the Bible has to offer. As she grew up, that fascination never faded and she began teaching the same classes that she once attended. This year marks thirteenth years of involvement in Children’s ministry, volunteering in areas from Sunday classes to Vacation Bible School, missions, and numerous church camps. There is nothing more rewarding for Tiffany than when a child is having a blast and learning about the Gospel along the way. That love for volunteering was the foundation which led to her career, leaving behind her Northwest roots to pursue a degree in Youth & Children’s Ministry at Grand Canyon University. Tiffany is currently in her second year in that field at GCU. Her internship here at The Spring is the next great chapter in this epic adventure and she is ultimately thankful for the opportunities God has placed before her. We welcome Tiffany to The Spring.
