The Sunshine Band was organized by the founder Bishop Charles H. Mason in 1911 for the purpose of ministering to and nurturing our children ages 12 and under.  The Sunshine Band is located throughout the United States and all over the world.

The Sunshine Band teaches children about God; the love of God and God’s Son, Jesus; basic Bible concepts and knowledge; the basic rules of ministry; scriptures that provide a foundation for understanding, faith, love, grace, salvation and practical precepts for living holy and productive lives.

Through the Sunshine Band children have the opportunity to learn, lead, follow, teach, explore, display their talents, develop, and grow. Activities are planned for each age group according to their physical, social, emotional and spiritual maturity.


The primary focus of the Sunshine Band is to reach out to our children and offer an opportunity for them to receive salvation in their productive years. Through meaningful and wholesome activities such as music, Bible study, drama, arts and crafts, field trips, and special worship services, our children can be instructed in the principles of Godly living. We desire to build a partnership between the home, the school and the church in order to provide a spiritual foundation and additional resources for each child.
