The mission of Christ Church is to be and become disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus, that starts right at home among our own children. Our goal in Christ Church KIDS is to create a safe, fun and engaging place for our children to gather and learn about God’s love for them.
About our KIDS In Motion Program
Christ Church KIDS In Motion is unique to our church, and inspired by our locally renowned Vacation Bible School program. Children will begin with Worship & Dance, then move to three different stations inside our building during their Sunday visit: Bible Adventure, Games, and Craft Exploration. Each station will dive deeper into the same biblical truth through multiple methods to reach kids of all learning styles. This style is an excellent fit for kids who don't get excited about traditional Sunday school! Feel free to drop off your child in their room up to 15 minutes before service, as they will have fun, interactive game time while they wait for their stations to begin.
Children Pre-K through 5th grade can participate in this Kids In Motion program. Toddlers will egage in an age specific lesson and craft while staying in the toddler room.

If this will be your family's first time visiting, you'll want to get your child(ren) checked in at our registration desk in the lobby. Please be sure to let us know if your child has any allergies (although snacks are only served in the toddler room).
WHAT TO EXPECT
Your child's safety is important to us. Each week you check in, you'll receive a randomly assigned number that will be used to pick up your child. If you lose your child's corresponding tag, you will need to present identification to receive your child.
Once your child has checked in, you can expect to be welcomed by our voluteers and for your child to experience a safe, fun and engaging environment. In each class kids will learn about God and what the Bible says, grow in relationships with peers, and be encouraged to live out what they've learned and share God’s love with others.
Please, no outside food in the rooms. We ask that your child(ren) finish their donuts or snacks outside the room before entering.
Our Sunday school classes will remain inside the building, and we've got plenty of activities planned to keep your kids engaged. But please feel free to get out some energy before or after service on our playground behind the church!
Please feel free to contact us with any questions about our Christ Church Kids Ministry.
