When infants and children are baptized here at City Church, the pastor asks our members to stand and answer the following question:
Do you as a congregation undertake the responsibility in assisting the parents in the Christian nurture of this child?
One of the practical ways our congregation works to fulfill that vow is through our Children’s Ministry.
As a church we believe that children, just like adults, desperately need Jesus’s saving grace and love. What’s more, we view them as an important part of the church body and strive to let them (and their parents) know that we welcome them, love them, and delight in them—both during worship and within our community.
City Church’s Children and Families Ministry operates under the belief that parents, before any other organization (church included), are responsible for the spiritual nurturing of their children. We are committed to seeing families grow together in their love for Jesus, and want to walk beside you as you raise your children, providing the best help and resources we can.
Children’s Ministry at City Church is broken down into four sections. To learn more about the different branches of our Children’s Ministry, please click on the links below.
During our worship service children's ministry has three facets:
Throughout the academic year on Sunday evenings City Kids meets for 4 year olds to 2nd graders, 3rd-5th graders, and Middle and High School Students.
