The Children’s Ministry at Christ the King seeks to provide opportunities for children to encounter and be changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to:
- Teach children the gospel–God’s redemptive plan for his people and their need for Jesus in their own lives
- Nurture and care for children so they feel embraced as part of the church community
- Assist parents in the spiritual nurture, instruction and training of their children

Children’s Worship provides a time of teaching for children (4 years to 2nd grade) to be shaped by the practices of worship and living by faith. Children are dismissed just prior to the sermon and are picked up at the conclusion of the worship service. The curriculum follows a two-year rotation of The Story of Worship (teaching through the order of worship) and I Believe: The Apostles' Creed (covering themes from the creed).
Our nursery rooms provide safe care for our youngest children (birth through three years) throughout our worship service. Children are nurtured through play, music, snack and Bible story time. Our primary teaching tools are Bible storybooks such as the Read Aloud Bible Stories series and My Very First Bible by Lois Rock.
Sunday School serves as the primary time for the Christian Education of children and youth at Christ the King. Classes are offered each week for all ages* and the scope of these classes reflects the church’s desire to equip children with an understanding of Scripture and God’s saving work to redeem his people through Jesus. Our Sunday School classes follow a systematic study of the Bible appropriate to each age group, and use curricula from Great Commission Publications as their primary teaching resource. *with the exception that those under 2.5 years receive care but no instruction
