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

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.

Sunday School

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 on the first and third Sundays, excluding summer, during the 10 a.m. service. Children are led downstairs by our ministry team and return during the Peace.

Youth Group Fellowship and Service

Youth at Christ Church participate in fellowship and service activities to nurture their spiritual growth, including Youth Group and community service. Christ Church is a partner in the regional youth ministry, Montgomery Episcopal Regional Caring Youth (MERCY), which also includes St. James in North Potomac and St. Francis in Potomac, led by Pastor Allison Michael.

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.
