We have THE place for Kids!  A place where where kids are planted, take root, grow and bear fruit. As kids grow up, our goal is that they will be Committed to God, Obedient to the Word, Rooted in Christ, and Equipped to serve Him. Our strategy is to strengthen their CORE. There are classes for kids (infant-fifth grade) during our two worship hours.

First Time Guests

Welcome to Central Church Kids Ministry!

We are glad you are thinking about coming to Central Church! We have so many wonderful things for your children but there are a few things you need to do in order to have the best first experience!

Follow blue signs in the parking lot to the guest parking area and into the building. Our host team will greet you, guide you through family check in, and personally escort you to your child’s classroom.

The safety of children is a priority for us so we will need some information about your children (child’s name, allergies, special instructions, etc.) You may register in advance or in person. Your child’s name tag will be ready at Guest Services when you arrive. If you have any questions contact us. We look forward to seeing you soon!

If a child becomes sick while in our care, we require parents to come get them and take them home.

What if my child needs to be fed or have a nap while they are in the nursery?
Our first priority is to take care of their physical and emotional needs, which include bottles and naps, as well as changing diapers, rocking, and playing. Our goal is to make your child’s experience in the church nursery a great start to a lifelong habit of attending Sunday School and church.

Infants – Age 2

The Backyard is where children take their first steps of faith. It is a safe, loving, fun and comfortable place for babies, toddlers, and their parents. Nursery staff rock, read, feed, and play with the children to ensure that they are content and well cared for.

The nursery is open every Sunday during our two church services. The Backyard is located in the main children’s building.

Safety and Security

The safety of the children in our care is of the highest importance. All kids classes are within manned Safe Zones. In order to ensure each child’s safety, parents check in their children at one of several convenient check-in stations. With the child’s name tag and drop-off slips, each parent also receives a Parent Pass. The parent pass includes a randomized code unique to each child. In order to pick up children, parents must show their pass to enter the Safe Zones and to pick up children. The volunteers in the room match the code from the Parent Pass to the child’s drop-off slip before releasing children to their parents.

Sunday Morning at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. children are assigned to classes based on their birth month and year and may attend one hour or both hours.

During the Week Kids Klub provides Christian care for children newborn through fifth grade during ministry events and activities at Central Church.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Chris Daley.

 

 

Age 2 – Jr. Kindergarten

The early childhood years are a fascinating time as young children change from toddlers who are just learning to talk and walk into boys and girls in kindergarten. Each child is uniquely created and is a gift from the Lord. God desires that they grow to love and worship Him. Our goal is to support parents as together we guide children toward the Savior and help them grow toward a mature understanding of the Christian faith. Early experiences at church help build a solid foundation for Christian growth.
