Children

 

"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." - Deuteronomy 6:4-7


God loves kids and so do we! God takes raising children seriously! Parents are the primary life teachers of their children. CCC provides Bible classes at 9:30 am each Sunday, and we have Kings' Kids and Junior Church for elementary aged kids during our morning worship service. These lesson and worship times are our way of helping you raise your kids to grow up God's way.

Family Discipleship is God's plan for raising Christian kids. This happens when parents are growing in their faith and they teach what they know and learn to the next generation. It is simply impossible for the church to spiritually raise your kids. We only get to see your kids for a few precious hours each week! What happens in the home matters. And it turns out that no one is better equipped to teach your kids than you. God made us that way :)

For this reason we use the Gospel Project curriculum for our 9:30 am children's Bible classes, and we also offer a Gospel Project adult class. What this means is that all kids from toddlers up to 12th graders are looking at the same part of the Bible each week. So your 5th grader just read the same scripture as your 10th grader and you can follow up with both of them at the same time! No more 'what did you learn in class today?' Because the adult Gospel Project class covers the same Bible passage, too. Now, when you jump in the car after church, Mom and Dad know what their kids learned...and the kids know what Mom and Dad learned, too! The Gospel Project helps us follow God's pattern for Family Discipleship.

There's even a Gospel Project app for your family!

Gospel Project
On Sundays mornings:

  • We have a nursery available every Sunday during 9:30 am Bible Classes and 10:30 am Worship.
  • We have 4 Bible Classes for Toddlers up to 5th Graders that cover the Gospel Project lesson for the day.
  • Toddlers up to 2nd Graders meet for Kings' Kids during Worship. Kids will sing, play, pray, and complete a craft in Kings' Kids. Kinder through 2nd Graders sit with their family on the first Sunday of each month.
  • 3rd through 5th Graders attend Worship at 10:30 am following Bible Class. Junior Church is for 3rd - 5th Graders and is dismissed after the offering in Worship. Our Junior Church teachers lead a lesson just for active 3rd - 5th grade imaginations!
Be on the lookout for:
  • Kids' Choir meets on Sunday afternoons to learn new worship songs and practice for seasonal performances. Sometimes the Kids' Choir teaches one of their new songs to the congregation! Sometimes the Kids' Choir takes a trip to sing to our friends at Sagebrook Health Center or Trinity Care Center! Keep an eye on the CCC calendar!
  • Seasonal Events like Vacation Bible School, Fall Festival, and Easter Egg Hunt. Sometimes Lewis the Donkey comes to visit us, too!
