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.

Vacation Bible School
VBS 2014: WILDERNESS ESCAPE - JUNE 9-12
Preparations are underway for Vacation Bible School 2014! This year, we will take a journey into the wilderness with none other than Moses himself! We have a new, earlier date for VBS this summer - June 9 - 12 from 9 AM to 12 PM.
Once again, we will be hosting VBS with our friends at St. Mark's Episcopal Church. Approximately 100 children will be with us to learn through songs, crafts, games, drama and even bread-making that "God Guides and Provides!" We need many volunteers to make VBS a success including: small group leaders, crafts/games/snacks assistants, decorations helpers, registrars and much more. Being a part of VBS is a fun, meaningful, memorable experience for the kids and volunteers. Additionally, college students and teens (incoming 6th graders and older) can earn service hours for this ministry…all while becoming role models (and sometimes heroes) for the children.
VBS will take place at Christ Episcopal Church for children ages 4 years through incoming 5th graders. Children under 4 may register if there is an adult in the family volunteering at VBS. There is a registration fee of $25 per child for registrations before May 15, with a family cap of $50 -- an incredible value for 4 days of fun! After May 15, the fee is $30. Early registration guarantees each child a t-shirt, so don't wait!
