Your child's safety is very important to us. Every weekend, your child is assigned a random three-digit alpha-numeric code on their name tag and your security receipt that you will use to pick-up your child from kidcity. Should we need you during the service, we will send you a quick text message!

Each weekend, your kids are joined by amazing volunteers that love God and want to hang out with your kiddos. Each volunteer has met with a staff member, gone through training, and is screened with a background check.

Our next Child Dedication Weekend is Sunday, October 13th
Christ Community Church believes that children are a gift from God. Child dedication is a wonderful tradition where we get to recognize and celebrate parents publicly declaring their commitment to teach their kids the importance of a relationship with Jesus Christ. If this is something you are interested in being a part of in the future and you have never dedicated before, we invite you to our child dedication class. Attending this class is the required first step in dedicating your child at CCC. This class will explain why we do child dedication, the importance of our role as parents, point you to some resources, answer any questions you may have, and get to know you if we haven’t met yet. Get more information and sign up for this class at the link below. 
If you have any questions about Child Dedication, contact Sam at  Our next Child Dedication class will be Sunday August 18th during the 9 AM service.  Please watch here for more details and a link to sign up.

 


EXPECTATIONS OF PARENTS:

  • At least one or both of the parents have made a commitment to having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We recognize that there are many families in which only one parent has come to faith and the spouse that is not yet a believer would like to participate—that is okay.
  • Parent(s) align with Christ Community’s beliefs and values.
  • Parents commit to modeling personal purity and to lead by example in matters of faith and conduct. That means living a life of sexual purity according to God's standards—avoiding pre-marital sexual relations and living together before marriage. Therefore, parents that are living together and are not married cannot participate in the dedication ceremony.

Two Years - Five Years Old

Kids participate in a Bible Story, worship songs, coloring and/or craft, and get their wiggles out in the gym as they play on slides and climbing toys. Our curriculum, First Look, is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths. The entire curriculum is constructed to meet your preschoolers where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. Through age appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know these three basic truths.

-God Made Me

-God Loves Me

-Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever

Preteen (4th-5th) Series - Before Opening this Box
We’ll start the summer months with a journey through the wilderness with the Israelites. We’ll discover what the Israelites discovered on that long journey: that God is Jehovah-Jireh, the God who Provides! Patience is often difficult for preteens! With this series, we’ll examine what God does in the waiting. When we’re walking with God, waiting time is never wasted time.
