Nursery

Christ Church offers a nursery facility for infants to age three during our Sunday worship services and Adult Education. Our staff is CPR and first-aid certified, as well as background checked and screened by our church leadership. A typical Sunday morning in the nursery includes playtime, stories in the reading corner, snack, and time to do crafts.

Children’s Church

For young children, we offer offers a Montessori-based curriculum called Godly Play during both of our worship services. Godly Play guides us through the liturgical year and introduces kids to the major Old and New Testament stories. After the morning’s story, the children are invited to work with the story sets themselves or create reflective artwork as they continue engaging with God. Children return to their families after the sermon, in time to share communion with the congregation.

Christ Church offers Sunday school for Pre-K to 5th grade kids from 10:15-11:00 a.m. each Sunday. During Sunday school children discover the broad narrative of Scripture, engaging the Word with heart and mind. Scripture reading, discussion, hands-on activities, art projects, and prayer time are all part of the morning.
