At Christ Congregation, we don’t just think our kids are the future—we believe they are the heart of our present! We help our kids cultivate their growing spirits and teach them the values of our life together as a church.
The first Sunday of the month is always an intergenerational worship service. During the rest of the month, we offer a Time for Children of All Ages after the passing of the peace. During the school year, kids from Pre-K through 5th grade are then invited to participate in our Godly Play Children's Church Program. Of course, they are always welcome to stay with their parents if they prefer.
Children's worship bags are available by the entrance to the sanctuary and a "Pray Ground" with quiet toys and activities is available in the back of the sanctuary. This is a space where our youngest members can move around as they need to while still taking in the rhythms of worship. Nursery care is also available.
TO THE PARENTS OF OUR YOUNGEST CHILDREN, MAY WE SUGGEST . . .
- Relax! God put the wiggle in children, so don’t feel you have to suppress it in God’s house. We are all welcome just as we are!
- Children learn worship behavior by copying you. Sing the hymns, pray, and voice the responses. Feel free to quietly explain the parts of the service and the actions of the minister, choir, etc.
