Jesus tell us, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14
Those who minister to children at Christ Church are obedient to the loving command of Jesus to let the children come to him. Both children and adults involved in Children's Ministry are mutually blessed as we carry out the vision of the church "...to know Christ and make him known" through:
Reaching out to others with the love of Christ
The main goal of Children's Ministry is to bring children to Christ through Sunday school, Children's Chapels, and special events and projects. Through these venues, Christ is made known in the telling of God's story in scripture and the sharing of the life of Christ in us through our witness to the world.

FALL SUNDAY SCHOOL 2014
“The Story” for third graders. Kids will get through the whole Bible in one year with the Bible presented in story form, linking Old and New Testament from Genesis to Revelations.
“Grapple” - Preteens Toughest Questions. The Bibles Smartest Answers for our fourth and fifth graders. Our preteens will “grapple” with important and relevant issues in their lives that relate to the pressures of preadolescence within the context of our current complex culture. Class will turn to the Bible each Sunday for answers to these questions.
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Levels I and II have been revived! Our beautiful Atrium class rooms will be in use again this fall for our preschoolers in Level I and first and second graders in Level II. This is the best program possible for laying a strong faith foundation for our younger children. It is Bible- based, Christ -centered, and developmentally appropriate. It connects the Bible in a meaningful way to our sacraments and liturgy like no other!
