Children, Youth, and Family Ministries

 Children are not the church of tomorrow…they are the church of today.

Christ Church is committed to connecting and making disciples of all ages. Our children’s ministry serves the very youngest of our congregation up into middle school. For more information about our Children’s Ministry, please contact Jennifer George jgeorge@cantoncpc.org. Then, our Youth Ministry serves those in 6th-12th grades. For more information about our Youth Ministry, please contact Bonnie Wiggins bwiggins@cantoncpc.org.

Below, you will find information on our Sunday programs as well as activities and opportunities we have for children and youth throughout the week and year.

Nursery
Our Nursery, for infants and toddlers through age two, is located in the lower level and is caringly staffed by volunteers from 9:15 AM through the 10:30 AM service. Pagers are available so parents can be contacted anywhere in the building if needed, and can learn and worship with peace of mind.

9:15 AM Sunday School
Classes are held in our lower level for younger children and in our Youth Room for older children/youth and run September through June.

For our younger children, they begin with “Chapel Time” a short worship time in the Chapel that focuses on music, Scripture, and prayer before they head to their classes. Our classes are grouped by grades (posted just outside each classroom) and focus on providing age appropriate ways for children to learn about Jesus in a fun and faith filled atmosphere. For parents, we provide information and materials to help you share the message at home.

For our older children/youth, they proceed directly to the youth room, located on the second level, for a Sunday School class. These classes feature a variety of teachers and topics, covering difficult topics relevant to today’s youth.

Youth Group
Youth Group is geared toward those in 6th-12th grade. The group meets most Sunday evenings from 6:00-7:30 PM in the youth room at the church and runs concurrently with the academic year. Additionally, throughout the year and even during the summer, there are monthly field trips, including ice skating, game nights, and musicals. Youth Group is a place where we discuss faith, worship, pray, play games, serve others, and fellowship. It is a place where people of the same age can learn, play, pray, and struggle with the same things. For more information, please contact Bonnie Wiggins bwiggins@cantoncpc.org.

Family Fellowship
Families today are on the go and Christ Church knows the importance of finding time and activities to share together. We offer many activities throughout the year that your entire family will enjoy and look forward to. From our annual Easter Egg Hunt, to movie nights, family community events like bowling and ice skating, to after church pitch-in lunches, your family can create memories together.

Children’s Library
Located in the lower level, our Children’s Library is a special place of enjoyment and discovery though books, music, movies, and more! We also have special resources for parents to use that offer guidance with difficult topics and open up conversation with their children. We also have a “mini library” cart near our Sanctuary that showcases new releases and seasonal topics to check out on the go.
