City Pres Kids
Our children are cherished and important members of the covenant community, and City Pres is deeply committed to both their spiritual and physical nurturing. To ensure your child’s safety and your peace of mind, we conduct background checks on all workers involved in children’s ministries. On Sunday mornings, we offer the following sessions for infants, toddlers and young children:
NURSERY (birth to one year) & TODDLER ROOM (two to three year olds)
City Pres provides a nursery so that parents with infants and toddlers can worship without their distraction. Our goal is to maintain a safe, healthy and happy atmosphere with age-appropriate toys and watchful, loving supervision. Available during the worship service, the nursery is always staffed with at least two adults who have successfully completed a background check.
In our new building with a bigger, more fitting space than we previously had, the toddlers are combined with the babies in the nursery, for now. This is a place for toddlers to play and keep busy during the service.
CHILDREN’S CHURCH (four-year-olds to fourth graders)
Children ages four to fourth grade begin with parents in the worship service and are dismissed prior to the sermon every 1st and 3rd Sunday for Children’s Church. Children's Church provides a space to teach God’s Word and apply it, build community, and share Christ’s love. Children’s Church is always staffed with two adults who have successfully completed a background check.
Our current curriculum: "Torchlighters, the heroes of the faith"
Torchlighters highlights the honor, the integrity, and life changing experiences of those well known and little known men, women, and children who in response to God's call dedicated their lives to a life of whole hearted commitment and passionate service to Jesus.
It is my sincere desire that as children get to know these “torchlighters,” they will be challenged to follow in the footsteps of the greatest torchlighter of them all, Jesus Christ.
In Children's Church, each child was given a folder, inside of the folders are activities that are related to the lesson they are leaning in class. They can pick up there folders from the classroom on the 2nd and 4th Sunday and work on the activities while in church. We will review their work in class the following Sunday.
