Children are precious to Jesus and also to us here at Christ the King. We provide a warm and welcoming environment where children are loved and taught about Jesus using music, flannel boards, puppets, drama and crafts. We use Great Commission Publications’ “Show Me Jesus” curriculum and tailor it to consistently emphasize the themes of grace and the centrality of Jesus in the Bible.
Nursery and Toddler Classes
We offer classes for infants and toddlers ages eight weeks to four years old during all worship services. Our member volunteers and trained caregivers provide a loving environment for our youngest members.
For our two, three and four-year-olds, a Bible story is presented during the first and second worship service time by member volunteers to help children understand who God is and what he is like. Follow-up activities, songs, and learning scripture help our littlest learners as they begin to know and worship the King.
Wee Worship is for three and four-year-old children and meets in room B118 during the 8:30 worship service. Volunteers bring children from their classroom to attend Wee Worship.
Kingdom Kids is for Kindergarten through second grade students for the 8:30 service and four-year-olds through second grade students for the 11 am worship service. Children attend the first part of the worship service with parents and are dismissed after the music portion of the service. Parents escort children to the Gathering Hall to meet volunteers who take children to the Kingdom Kids room (B201).
Sunday School for Children
We offer Bible classes for school-age children during the 9:45 am service. Each class time includes instruction in and opportunities for singing, prayer, and scripture learning.
All classes are led by adult members of Christ the King and are committed to help children worship, know and serve the King. We count it a privilege to serve the children that the Lord has given us.
We are always looking for new volunteers to serve in the Children's Ministry. Please contact Patti Cunningham for more information.
"The Greatest Treasure Hunt" Vacation Bible School:
Join us for Vacation Bible School from 9 am to noon, July 21-25. Vacation Bible School is for children who are four years old by Sept. 1, 2014 through entering 5th grade. Nursery and a preschool program is available for adult parent volunteers.
Register your children or sign up to volunteer here.
One of my favorite things about the week of Vacation Bible School was the new relationships that began as I worked alongside women and men whom I had only seen in passing on Sunday mornings, or had never met. There is something about serving with someone on even the smallest of tasks that can spark interesting conversations and an abundance of laughter. Whether you are an old or new member of Christ the King or a regular attender, we want you to serve during Vacation Bible School. We have a wonderful opportunity to disciple the children whom Jesus is drawing to himself, to make new acquaintances and to serve our church using our God-given gifts and talents. And frankly, it's just so much fun. Hope you will join us in this year's adventure!
