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:
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.

VBS Athens 2013 was a tremendous success lead by our own Amy Case and Shea Pollom from St. Mark's. About 100 children, some from SAMM, learned about Paul's struggles to lead the church in Athens. Many thanks go to the over 100 volunteers who helped make the week fun and memorable.
