Christ Community offers many opportunities for children to grow in their faith.

Sunday Morning Ministries


A baby nursery is available for children under 18 months.

Toddler nursery is available for kids 4 and under.  

The baby nursery is also available during the Sunday School hour from 10:30 -11:15am.

There is a "cry room" available for mothers with babies located toward the back of the sanctuary which allows mothers to see and hear into the sanctuary from a private space.

J.A.M. (Jesus And Me)

Every Sunday morning, all children 3 years old through Kindergarten are invited to participate in J.A.M. (Jesus and Me), which meets in the classroom located in the West Foyer during the 9 am worship service.  

J.A.M. is an age-appropriate worship service with singing, Bible teaching, Scripture memory, and other activities intended to foster joyful worship among our children.

A team of dedicated leaders rotate on a monthly schedule in order to provide consistency for the children attending J.A.M.

Questions? Contact our J.A.M. coordinator, Becky Roth

Sunday School

Classes for all ages every Sunday at 10:30am (with summer breaks).  Nursery care is available during Sunday School for children who are newborn up to 2 years old.

 Our classes afford both students and adults an opportunity to grow in knowledge of God's Word and to spur one another on toward love and good works in Christ.

February Book Groups
Every February, month-long book groups are available for adults to join during the Sunday School hour.

Children's Church

1st/3rd Sunday 9-10am  |  Family Center

Children's Church is a place where the kids learn from the Bible, pray together, and sing joyfully to the Lord.  This time is intended to offer an age-appropriate, easily understandable worship service for our children.  

We conduct Children’s Church only twice a month because we want to ensure that our children also have the opportunity to worship alongside their parents and the rest of the Body of Christ.

It is important to us that our youth ministries supplement, but not replace, the God-ordained role of parents in instructing children in the ways of the Lord.

Jr. High Youth Group

Our Junior High students (6th, 7th, and 8th grades) meet on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall and Family Center. Students are instructed in Biblical truths and how to apply them to everyday life. The time of learning and worship is followed by various activities such as dodgeball, kickball, and a host of other games.

The Jr. High Youth Group is led by our Youth Pastor Intern, Zack Puck, who can be reached at
