Children & Youth
Christ Church is committed to serving the needs of our youth through all stages of their development. We offer extensive programs for children and their families, including nursery care, Sunday School, Children's Church, Youth Group, and more.
Childcare is available Sunday mornings during the 10:00 a.m. service for ages six months to 4 years, as well as at selected special services during the year. Our nursery room (which is shared with our school Kindergarten class) is staffed by trained aides and stocked with toys, books, and appropriate videos, as well as toddler-sized bathroom facilities and changing table. Pagers are provided to notify you during the service if your child needs assistance.
Christian Education is the process by which we become equipped, in the name of Jesus Christ, for ministry in God's world. Since the formal Christian education of Christ Church can only supplement the learning that takes place at home, we try to offer an opportunity for children of all ages to experience faith as part of a community.
Christ Church offers Sunday school classes for children age 4 through high school. Each class is aimed at helping children experience faith at their level of understanding. Classes are held most Sundays, excluding summer, at 11:20 a.m. in separate classes by age group. Children meet immediately after church in the Dining Room and then proceed with their teachers to their classroom. Classes are dismissed at noon.
Children’s Chapel is a unique celebration of the Word and Holy Eucharist designed specially for children (preschool - fifth grade) using a storytelling curriculum. Children's Chapel is held in the Youth Room during the 10 a.m. service. Children come with their parents into the church and then follow the cross down to the Youth Room. They return for communion during the Peace. Parents, siblings, and friends are always welcome.
Youth Fellowship and Service
Youth at Christ Church participate in fellowship and service activities to nurture their spiritual growth, including Youth Group and community service. We believe that youth are not only the future of the church but an important part of our everyday mission. Our youth actively participate throughout the church, including in worship, Sunday School education, Acolytes, Choristers, Nursery, Outreach, Greeters, Ushers, Lectors, and Adult Forums. Our goal is that our youth live out their faith in their daily lives.
