    Our hearts are broken with the events in Minneapolis and we join you and all our families in praying for unity and change. In light of what is happening we thought it would be a perfect time to gather your family together to talk about some important values that God calls us to have for one another.

    We have put together a family discussion sheet and other resources for you to use while you tackle this extremely vital topic with your child.

    Children's Ministry

    Children are a vital part of the church today. They are not the next generation, they are part of our faith community now. We need them. They inspire us. At Christ Church we are passionate about creating environments where children and servant leaders can engage with one another and where we give space for the Holy Spirit to move and form these young hearts and minds. Creative teams teach the bible and lead worship, spurring our children to love Jesus wholeheartedly and carry His light into their world. Our Children’s Ministry is a place where kids ages birth-fifth grade receive tangible expressions of God's grace and truth amongst a vibrant, loving and caring community of faith.

    Our desire is to:

    1. Encourage each child to enjoy worshipping Jesus.
    2. Come alongside parents to encourage their spiritual nourishment.
    3. Secure a volunteer buddy to be with your child if needed.
