Vision: The Children’s Ministries of CMF will reach children with the love of God and teach them His ways, growing them into faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
A staffed nursery for infants and children up to age 3 is provided during our 9:15 AM worship service and also during our 10:45 AM worship service and Sunday school period. Our nursery facilities and attendants provide a safe and caring environment for your child(ren). All of our teachers and nursery workers have completed criminal and child abuse clearances.
Children’s Church provides a time for young children to actively learn about God’s Word. Two classes are offered during the 9:15 AM worship service: ages 3 through Preschool, and Kindergarten through First Grade.
The children are dismissed from the sanctuary when the offering is taken and remain in Children’s Church until the adult worship service ends. When a child comes for the first time, we ask that an adult accompany him/her to the room, fill out a registration form, and receive a name tag before returning to the worship service. Please bring that name tag with you when you return at the end of the service to pick up your child.
Sunday school classes are provided for children ages 2 through fifth grade. Classes meet during the 10:45 AM service, with a children’s worship time from 10:45-11:00 AM. Our teachers share God’s Word and His love in an age-appropriate environment to help children apply what they learn to their lives. Children ages 2 through first grade must be signed in by a parent. Parents and children receive matching security bracelets for safety during dismissal.
New in Sunday school – “The Gospel Project!” From our tiniest toddlers up to our high school seniors, our Sunday school students have begun an exciting three-year trek through the Bible with “The Gospel Project.” Children and teens of all ages will study the same passages in the Bible each week. Take advantage of this new feature and talk with your kids about what they learned today. We hope they will join us each week to journey through God’s story together! To learn more about The Gospel Project, visit www.gospelproject.com/kids.
High Point is a Wednesday night program held for five weeks in the fall and winter for kids in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Each unit digs into the Bible and focuses on building Christ-like character in a fun way. The Biblical character traits learned through High Point will serve kids their entire lifetime. You can check out the High Point website at http://www.gph.org/highpoint/.
Pack Your Bags – It’s Time for a fall High Point adventure! Kids in kindergarten – 5th grade are invited to “fly” with us to Atlanta, GA, where we’ll talk about “Courtesy” on Wednesday nights this fall, from October 4 through November 1. Check-in will begin at 6:15 PM, and we will “travel” from 6:30-8:00 PM. Kids and volunteers, please sign up at the High Point table in the lobby, even if you can come only a few times. Hope to see you there!
Vacation Bible School is an outreach event for children ages four through fifth grade. It is held for a week in June, in the evenings. Each evening is action-packed and kid-friendly as we engage the children in learning God’s Word and applying it to their lives.
ConNect activities are taught by CMF volunteers to elementary age children in an effort to ConNect our congregation across the generations. During ConNect classes, kids can learn a skill, a hobby, a sport or just have some fun! Click here to see the ConNect classes offered this summer.
