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:
- Worshiping together
- Learning together
- 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 2018
Toddlers, Twos and Young Threes - “Play and Pray Bible Series”
FMC Room 104 This is a fun, activity-based introduction to Sunday School with prayer, play, and crafts each Sunday.
Preschool - “Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level I” FMC Room 204 A firm foundation of the knowledge of God’s unconditional love for each child is built in this Christ-, Bible- and Child-centered environment which connects Bible with sacrament. "Jesus is our Good Shepherd" is the cornerstone of this class.
First & Second Grades - “Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level II” FMC Room 208
Children learn that they are connected to Jesus and each other as the Body of Christ through the true vine teaching of Jesus. Children work together as a community studying the life of Christ and his teachings, books of the Bible, biblical geography, and the sacraments.
Third & Fourth Grade - “The Story” FMC Room 301
Children learn about the most important stories in the Bible in two years – from creation in Genesis to the second coming of Christ in Revelation. They see that the Bible is God’s story and we are part of it.
Planet 56 - “Grapple” in Carriage House and FMC Room 201
Our 5th & 6th graders are faced with many challenges at this age. “Grapple” encourages them to turn to God’s word, the Bible, for answers. Together with their peers and team of teachers, they find support in their faith in dealing with the pressures of preadolescence. The group will gather for praise & worship in the Carriage House then go together to their newly designed room in the FMC.
