Christ Church Kids is designed to minister to children of all ages! We look forward to coming alongside you to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In late 2020 our nursery opened for our children ages 3 months - 36 months of age. Registration for the nursery is required for our regular attenders and members. You can find the registration at the bottom of the Sunday Registration linked on our main page.
Our typical opportunities for kids include:
Designed for ages 6 weeks – 15 months. Children will be loved on and cared for in a safe environment while you are in service. We have two trained volunteers in this room at all times who have access to a variety of toys and baby necessities while serving.
Toddlers through Preschool
Designed for ages 16 months through 5 years old (preschool). Children in each of these classes are loved on and cared for by one of our staff members as well as a trained volunteer. Children will play games, do a craft, sing songs, and have a Bible lesson while you are in service.
Kid's Quest: Kindergarten-2nd grade
Children will begin service with their family and be dismissed during greeting time. During the sermon, they will engage in a fun-filled lesson that teaches them the fundamentals of their faith. The Kid's Quest curriculum is Show Me Jesus. It's designed to engage our children in the Word of God through scripture reading, study, catechism review, and a variety of activities! Children will then rejoin their families in service for communion time.
Christian Education is available for all ages. Our Kindergarten through Fifth-grade students are taught Bible stories of God's work in the world to help our children know and love the truth. The curriculum covers the first 57 questions of the Westminster Shorter Catechism which is specifically designed for kids. Music, games, art, written activities, and a lot of repetition reinforce teaching and help children memorize answer to the questions. Our ultimate goal for each child we teach goes beyond gaining intellectual knowledge to having a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ and growing to love him with all his or her heart, soul, mind, and strength. As we study and teach these great truths from Scripture, may we grow in our knowledge of God and his grace.
Summer Sports Camp
Each summer, Christ Church offers a Sports Camp for children who have completed Kindergarten through 6th-grade using basketball and volleyball to reach out to the community and share the love of Jesus.
Please exercise good judgment and love for your neighbor as you evaluate whether your child is healthy enough to be in the nursery. For the well being of all our children, we ask that children remain at home if they are exhibiting the following symptoms:
- Cold symptoms such as heavy coughing, excessive sneezing, yellowish discharge from the eyes or nose
- A temperature of 100.5 degrees or higher in the last 24 hours
- Vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours
- Questionable rashes
If an adult in the nursery observes these or other symptoms of illness, parents may be called to remove their child.
If you would like to volunteer in our Christ Church Kids ministry, please fill out the forms below. These forms permit Christ Church to run a background check.
You may email the completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org or hand them to Cassie Elbel in person on Sunday. Once the background check and the Ministry Safe video are completed, Cassie will notify you and get you on the schedule.
Thank you for volunteering and making Christ Church Kids a great place to be!
