Children’s Ministry

We LOVE children at Christ the Redeemer and are committed to partnering with our families in raising them to know and love Jesus and to grow up to become like him.

On Sunday mornings:

Our NURSERY is open for our youngest members and is staffed by loving members of our community. Our Greeters at either entrance will be able to direct you to our spacious, bright room.  The nursery goes from birth to age 2.  Nursery aged children can be dropped off in the nursery at the beginning of the service, or if their parents wish to keep them until the older kids leave for Sunday School, they may do so. Nursery care is also available during Discipleship Hour, from 9 – 10 am.  

Our Sunday School goes from to 2 years old through fifth grade.  Children begin the day in worship with their families, then, after the Gospel reading, they leave for age-appropriate fun and learning. The children return to worship prior to Communion.  The classes are as follows:

  • 2-3 year olds (Toddlers)
  • PreK4-K5
  • 1st-2nd Grades
  • 3rd-5th Grades

Our goal in Sunday School is to help our children learn to experience God’s love and embrace God’s teaching using music, bible stories, and art. We currently use Group’s Faith Weaver curriculum.

New families must register their children on their first day.

The safety of our children is of the utmost importance to us here at Christ the Redeemer, so all Nursery and Sunday School volunteers have current background checks on file with the church.

CHILDREN & FAMILY MINISTRY CORNER
Summer Edition
I don’t know about everyone else, but May was a very busy month for my family. I am looking forward to the crazy months of the summer. For those of you who are new to CTR, our summer schedule is slightly different from the school year schedule. Discipleship Hour breaks for the summer months and our regular Sunday school classes switch to a Children’s Church setup. Children ages 4-5th grade meet in the Ministry Room for a multi-age time of teaching and fun. Our nursery ages are extended to up to age 3 due to the Toddler room not meeting. Children from the nursery still need to be picked up by their parents, but we will return your school-age children to you during the passing of the peace.
Our theme for Children’s Church this summer is Heroes of the Bible. We will be talking about the different character traits that these men and women had that allowed them to be remembered as heroes of the faith. We will learn how we can cultivate these same traits in our own faith journey, and what tools God gives us to help us do this. We will also study how Jesus is our true super hero.
We are taking a break from VBS this summer and trying something new. For the past few summers we have run a traditional daytime VBS. This year we are putting together a program that will focus on spiritual formation for the entire family. This program will be for the whole church body, young and old, married and single. Be listening for upcoming announcements on “Spiritual Formation Through Family Worship.” Mark your calendars for the week of August 6-9 and please plan to attend.
