1. To impact children’s hearts with the gospel of grace, focusing not on external behavior but on a true relationship with Christ by teaching well and showing them repentance and faith.
  2. To give children opportunities to express worship to God as they learn who He is, what He has done, and what He continues to do in them and for them.
  3. To foster knowledge of God’s Word, which is essential for a full understanding of God’s character and His plan of redemption. This fostering equips children to enter adulthood with a firm foundation of Truth.
  4. To create a safe environment – both physically and emotionally – where relationships with leaders and other children can develop and children feel accepted and loved, just as Christ loves us.
  5. To lead children to follow Christ’s example of ministering to others, providing opportunities for service, as well as planning activities geared to attracting unbelievers.


Christ Community offers nursery care for both our pre-worship training time (9:00 - 10:20am on Sunday mornings) and the duration of the worship service (10:30 - 12:00pm) for infants up to age three. Please bring all required items for your baby, such as wipes, diapers, bottle and food. If you have any questions or special requests, please ask a nursery worker or a volunteer at the registration desk.

Children's Discipleship

Christ Community Church seeks to be a church that develops mature followers of Christ who seek to make much of Jesus in all nations. As a component of this mission, CCC is moving toward a church-wide discipleship model. This plan includes children's discipleship groups for grades 1 - 6. Kids' discipleship groups meet on Sunday mornings from 9:15 - 10:15am. Contact Renee Whorton with questions or to add your school-aged kids to our discipleship program! Younger kids (grade K & preschoolers) participate in Sunday School during the worship service. After kids' discipleship classes end, children are dismissed by discipleship leaders in the following ways: parents must pick up kids in grades 1-2, kids in grades 5-6 walk to worship on their own, and parents decide if kids in grades 3-4 walk to worship on their own or remain with a discipleship leader until a parent picks them up. 

Sunday School

We love serving God's children!  Preschoolers and kindergarteners join their parents for the beginning of our worship service (music, prayer, annoucements), but are released to their Sunday school classes before the sermon/teaching time. Sunday kids' programs include a craft/activity, Bible teaching, games, scripture memory, and a fun time.  All that we do with our children is with the purposes of serving God and raising the next generation of believers! Our current Sunday School classes include preschool 1, preschool 2, and Kindergarten. As explained above, grades 1 - 6 and youth will participate in kids'/youth discipleship before the worship service, then participate in the entirety of the worship service with the Christ Community Church body.

Sunday Morning Check-in for Kids

In order to ensure safety and protection for our Christ Community kids and visitors, parents/guardians are asked to check in infants, preschoolers, and kindergarteners at the registration desk in the foyer of our worship site. At the desk a Christ Community staff member will give you full instruction on checking your child into/out of the nursery or kids' classes as well as get info on any special needs or considerations your child may have.
