Infant - 5th Grade

Kids' Ministry at Christ Church provides Christ-centered worship, education, and ministry opportunities for children and their families. We partner with parents and equip them as spiritual influencers of their children. 

With influences from home and church working together, we can raise spiritually healthy children. Babies, toddlers, and preschoolers take their first look at God through age-appropriate activities. Music, movement, prayer, and discovery rule in early childhood ministry. 

Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade study God’s Word during the education hour and worship the One True God during worship hours. They learn how to apply God’s truths to their everyday lives in both large and small group settings. Our skilled leaders ensure your child enjoys a fun, safe, and faith-nurturing environment.
