The goal in Children’s Ministry at CHC is that children know God, love Him, and love others. Each week we share Jesus and His incredible sacrifice with the children and remind them He loves them, knows them, and is always with them. We also strive to partner with and equip parents to nurture their children’s growing faith.
Nursery and Preschool (ages 0-5)
From birth, we believe children learn that God is a God of love, warmth, and safety. Our leaders and volunteers demonstrate this through the love, care, and concern they provide to each child. Through books and music, the message is God is love and thinks our children are pretty special.
Once children turn two, they move into the preschool rooms (ages 2-5). Lessons are more structured with bible stories, songs, and activities as children make their way through God’s great story.
Kids’ Church (K-5th Grade)
Children begin the service worshiping with their parents and then will process out just before the sermon. In Kids’ Church the children enjoy fellowship with each other, hear a bible story, sing songs, pray together, and enjoy an activity or craft that reinforce the lesson. We also take time to talk about how the lesson applies to their everyday life, so they have a tangible goal/challenge to take with them into their week. Children return during the peace portion of the service to continue their worship with their families.
