CCR KidsChildren's Ministry
"We've visited a lot of churches, and our children said they loved it here the best!"
Children are important to God. Often they give us a clearer picture of what our relationship with God ought to look like — fully reliant, trusting, unashamed.
At CCR, we want to help families follow Jesus together. We believe children make an important contribution to our worship experience and help us encounter God together. At the same time, we recognize that kids have unique needs different from those of parents or even children of different ages.
We believe that children can make a huge contribution to our worship gatherings, so we do what we can to make it possible for kids who are six years old and up to join us every Sunday. Each week, these older children will receive an activity sheet that helps them have fun and follow along with the message. Occasionally, worship gatherings even feature a children’s sermon.
***THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR OUR FALL PREVIEW GATHERINGS. LOOK FOR THESE OPTIONS WHEN WE RETURN TO WEEKLY GATHERINGS.***
Nursing Moms and/or Fussy Babies
Sometimes our youngest ones can sit through worship without a peep. Other times, however, babies get hungry or antsy to move. That shouldn’t mean that you have to miss out on worship, so we have a room specifically for parents who need to leave the chapel with their kids. Most importantly, the room has an iPad with a live audio/video feed from the chapel so you don’t have to miss a moment of worship.
Nursery (birth – 2 years)
The CCR nursery provides a safe environment and developmentally appropriate activities that kids from birth through age two can enjoy during our worship gatherings. Kids can be checked-in before parents head into the chapel.
Preschool and Kindergarten (3 – 5 years)
We want our preschooler and kindergarteners to get the best of both worlds: having the chance to worship with their real family and church family, but also to learn in an environment that meets their developmental needs. Though they can check-in at the children’s area prior to the worship gathering, preschool and kindergarten aged kids can join their families in the chapel with the option of returning to the kids area prior to the sermon.
