Children

Sunday School at 9:30 a.m.
During the school year, we provide Sunday school classes for all ages. We have enough curriculum materials and teachers in place to support dozens of students in our children’s Sunday school classes. Our regular attenders get solid biblical teaching each week.

Sunday School Nursery at 9:30 a.m.
The nursery will also be available for the children of those parents who wish to attend the Adult Bible Study.

Worship at 10:30 a.m.
God desires that all people would worship him together. At Christ Community we believe God wants our entire covenant family, especially our children, to be included in our worship of Him. Children are worshipers too.

What better encouragement and training could a child receive than to take to heart the example of his parents? But this “on-the-job” training of a child in how to worship can be a daunting and frustrating task. We want our parents to succeed in training up their children to worship God. Therefore, please take note of these things:

  1. First, we want to include our entire family, even our infants, in our worship. If a child is crying or being a little bouncy or noisy, that’s okay. We expect that from our children.
  2. The TV in the Nursery will show the sermon portion of our worship. If your child is under four years old and you feel your child is being overly distracting to others and hindering their ability to worship during the sermon, please feel free to take your child to the nursery. You will be able to listen to the sermon while in the nursery. When it is time for communion, please bring your child back to worship with the rest of our family.
  3. If your child is at least four years old, we encourage you to begin the process of teaching your child to worship. We would like to meet with you and give to you a free book, Parenting In the Pew (Castleman). This is a great resource for any parent no matter the age of their children.

Volunteers
Finally, if you love children I want to talk with you. There is an opportunity for you to bless our church family and be blessed by God. You could be a teaching assistant, or assist in the nursery during Adult Bible Study, or be available as a substitute teacher. If you love kids, let’s see how God will use you.
