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.) If you have any questions contact us. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is taught in the nursery?
We believe babies can learn about God’s love from the beginning of their lives. We use 1st Look curriculum from Rethink.

When may a baby begin attending Sunday School?
As soon as a parent feels comfortable bringing their baby to church, they may leave them in the nursery.We recommend parents check with their pediatrician to be sure.

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.

What if my child needs me during their class?
Parents will be notified via the screens in the worship center or called on the cell phone number listed on the sign in sheet.

Are children allowed to attend if they are sick?
No. We have strictly enforced policy which requires children to be symptom free for 24 hours. Children may not come to Central Kids if within the previous 24 hours they have had a fever, diarrhea, vomiting, green or yellow mucus, conjunctivitis (pink eye), an unexplained or contagious rash, or contagious childhood diseases such chicken pox, scarlet fever, or measles. If a child becomes sick while in our care, we require parents to come get them and take them home.

Annual Events 

Camp Tsungani

May 27 – 31 | Red Oak Lake in Cordova, TN

CAMP TSUNGANI is the first and best week of summer. We’ll spend the week at Camp Tsungani playing games, sand painting, engaging in worship that reaches kids where they are, and learning about God.

 

Infants – Age 2

The Nursery 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 Nursery is located in the main children’s building.

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

SUNDAY MORNING

Our nursey is open for both the 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services. Children are assigned to classes based on their birth month and year and may attend one hour or both hours.

DURING THE WEEK

Kids Club 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 Tammy Beatse about Kids Club.

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.

 

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.

SUNDAY MORNING

Children have classes both hours – 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. Children are assigned to classes based on their birth month and year. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Courtney Hudson.

Kindergarten – 5th Grade

Central Kids is an awesome place where kids get connected to meaningful relationships, God’s Word and fun age-appropriate activities in an exciting and safe environment.

SUNDAY MORNING

Classes are offered during our two services times (9:30 and 11:00). Kindergarten – 2nd grade have separate class times and large group experiences from 3rd – 5th grade. Both large group times offer a unique time of worship, videos, and Bible connections that focus on one topic for an entire month.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT (6:30 – 8:00)

Wednesday nights are an awesome time for elementary kids. Kindergarten – 5th graders will start off together with a time of music and prayer before dividing into different age groups. Each age group is filled with fun, games, and activities that reinforce Biblical truths. Wednesday nights follow the school calendar and meet from August – November and resume from January – April.
