- Keep the GOSPEL central in all our teaching, ensuring that all curricula used is biblically sound and God-centred.
- Ensure that all Children’s Ministry teachers and small group leaders are committed, growing Christ-followers who model and teach a God-centred lifestyle.
- Place children into small groups that encourage them to live in COMMUNITY with others who are learning about a God-centred life.
- Encourage children to develp regular habits of Bible study, prayer and scripture memorization.
- Provide opportunities for children to engage in MISSION work by sharing God’s love with others both locally and globally.
We also recognize that God has given the primary responsibility for training children in the teachings of the GOSPEL to parents. As such, we actively seek to train and equip parents to better engage in this task through periodic classes, resources and discussion groups.
Hear O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
We look to care for the families by providing safe, loving care for infants from birth to two years of age while their families participate in the worship service. Our nursery is open from 15 minutes prior to the service until 15 minutes afterwards.
Children ages 2-5 experience a time of age-appropriate teaching designed to encourage them to learn more about our awesome God and to begin developing relationships with other kids their age & with their caring team of teachers & helpers.
For more info, or to volunteer to help in this amazing department, contact the Children's Ministry Team.
Children in grades 1-5 are placed in age-appropriate classes where they learn how Christ fits into the entire gospel story, pre-creation to eternity. They also learn how they relate personally with God.
Children are encouraged to join their family for the Family Worship portion of our Worship Service. They are dismissed to their classes just prior to the sermon. Children birth to age 5 can be signed into our children's ministry department (lower level).
For more info, please contact the Children' Ministry Team.
CBC supports families as they take on their God-given role of teaching their child to know the Gospel and how it changes their heart and instructs their life. One way we support parents is through the celebration of Family Dedication. If you would like to publicly dedicate yourself to follow God’s guidance in your child’s upbringing, please contact the main office; 519.225.2580.
