Growing with God
The elementary program at CBC is for our children in first through fourth grade. Each fall, we have a promotion Sunday, when the children move to the next classroom based on what grade they are in at school. The elementary children are led each week in a classroom setting by coaches. The same coaches serve each week or every other week, enabling close bonds to form between the coach and child. Middle and High School students also serve in various areas of Children's Ministry. Through our Student Impact program, high school students also coaches and role models for the young children. The adult coaches break for the summer and students rotate through crafts, games, and Power Up for time in God's word.
In addition to classroom time with coaches, the children enjoy a time of group worship in the Power Up room. Power Up provides a wonderful time of worship and a relevant Bible story. It is our goal to teach the elementary children "I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what and I should treat others the way I want to be treated."
Our focus for the elementary aged children is to show them how God's word fits into their lives, to learn how to talk to Him, and to build friendships that will last. That's why it's important to make sure your child connects with the same friends and consistent leaders, - EVERY SUNDAY!
Safety & Security
The safety and security of your child is of utmost importance to us. We use a computerized check-in system for all children in the nursery through fourth grade. Your check-in information is in a secure system where information is kept confidential. We have a dedicated check-in room located in the children's wing. At least one parent or guardian will need to accompany each child to our newly updated check in station. We also have another one in the nursery for nursery aged children.
Children's Prayer Box
To connect more effectively with kids, we have placed a prayer box on the welcome table in the children’s hallway. This will be a tool that our children’s staff will use to pray for kids’ specific prayer requests. Prayer request forms will be available on the welcome table and in the elementary class rooms. We count it an honor to lift up our kids’ needs to God’s throne of grace.
