Infants and Toddlers

We love kids! And we encourage parents to bring them to worship and help them to grow in faith through worshiping our Lord with the whole community. Kids learn to worship by worshiping!

SUNDAY MORNINGS

We have a cry room adjacent to the sanctuary, which offers breastfeeding moms and fussy babies a more private place to be while still following the worship service. An usher will be happy to show you where it is located. We also have a nursery for children age 0-4 years, staffed by a paid attendant, to provide safe and nurturing care for our youngest members and visitors. The nursery is open every Sunday morning from 8:45-11:30am during the school year (9:45-11:15am during the summer), as well as for some special events. 

NOTE: CtK is seeking a young adult (18+) years of age to be our Nursery Attendant. If you know someone interested in making a little extra cash, have them give the church office a call.

AT HOME

In addition to what happens on Sunday mornings, we also subscribe to an electronic newsletter "Frolic" provided by Sparkhouse, a division of Augsburg Fortress Publishers, a resource for families with children ages 0-5 years, intended to help them pass on the faith at home.

Please let the Church Office know if you would like to receive this monthly resource.

Preschool

SUNDAY SCHOOL - SUNDAY MORNING EDUCATION

Sunday School classes meet in the sanctuary at 9:00am and then go to their designated classrooms during the Education Hour, from 9:00-9:50am on Sundays throughout the school year. 

WORSHIP

There is a children's message during each service, and we encourage parents to have their children worship with them - after all, we learn to worship by worshiping! NOTE: If your child is reluctant to come up for the children's message, please feel free to accompany them to the front (many parents do this so their child feels "secure".)

We have "Busy Bags" filled with quiet activities like coloring sheets, puzzles, and other small toys to help children stay with their families during worship. The bags are hanging on a "tree" just outside the worship space - pick one up on your way into worship and drop it off again after the service is over. 

We also have a "staffed" nursery for children age 0-4 years, to provide safe and nurturing care for our youngest members and visitors. The nursery is open every Sunday during the school year from 8:45am-11:30am, 9:45am-11:15am during the summer, as well as for some special events.  

NOTE: CtK is seeking a young adult (18+) years of age to be our Nursery Attendant. If you know someone interested in making a little extra cash, have them give the church office a call.

THIRD GRADE BIBLES

Third grade students receive Bibles from the congregation in the early fall each year.  Have questions? Contact Pastor Lindean.  Have a third grade student who would like to receive a Bible from CtK?  Call the church office (577-2382) to let us know how you want the child's name written in the Bible.

SUNDAY MORNING EDUCATION

Regular Sunday School classes meet during the school year at 9:00am.

WORSHIP

We hope that children will learn to worship by worshiping with the whole community. Several children's worship aids are offered to help them engage. Busy Bags containing books, puzzles, coloring pages and more are available just outside the sanctuary.

We have Pre-Reader and Reader activity sheets available for children, along with colored pencils.

An usher will be happy to help you find them!
