Sundays – What to Expect: Worship is available in-person and online. Children are registered for worship before 11 am and then worship with the congregation until it is time for their dismissal for Worship in their children’s space. This worship service is for ages 4 years – 5th grade. Nursery is provided for children three years and under. The nursery opens at 10:40 a.m. We also welcome your child in the Worship Center if you prefer, and there is a Baby Break Room next to the Welcome Coffee Station just across the hall with rockers for nursing needs, etc. and streaming worship for your convenience with a Family Bathroom right across the hall.
Resources for Parents to Know What Your Child Experienced at Christ Church (Worship & Small Group)
Christ Church knows you are the spiritual leaders of your children and God is pleased to have you in that role. To help you expand your child’s expeirence from Worship and Small Group each week find the Parent Connection Google documents, read the short description and use it for discussion starters, etc.
This Sunday is Intergenerational where Children’s Worship ages, 4 years-5th grade, will worship the entire hour with their parents or guardians in the Worship Center. Children can find worship materials to accompany their time in worship on the bench by the Worship Center. Children’s small group God Journals are available in the crate. If you child has not attended a small group, they are still invited to have a God Journal for their time in Worship.
Christ Church has an open table for Communion. We take Communion by intinction which means a piece of bread is given to you to dip into the Cup when offered. Anyone can come to the Lord’s table. Children are welcome and if a crumb is dropped or bread lost in the juice there is no harm done. Gluten-free and pre-sealed are available, simply ask at the Communion Station.
Christ Church has a child policy to ensure a safe environment with volunteer training and background checks along with sign-in/sign-out safety procedures and facility safeguards. Please download the CC Form to provide information to best serve your child, CC Children Permission Form 2022/23.

Small Group is the place kids can be themselves and talk and learn about how God is a part of everyday. It’s a time to make lasting friendships that are for the good times and the bad ones. It’s here that children learn about small group life together and learn how to become more like Jesus. For grades K-5th. Check out the Small Group Parent Page where parents can see lessons and have At HOME to reinforce the lesson for the night. Contact Pastor Brenda.
Wednesday Nights 6:30 pm @ Christ Church
