We love children in our church family, and we have a lot of children! (Children under the age of 10 make up about a third of our congregation!) We are delighted to offer a number of ways for children to be loved and grow in the Lord, including ample opportunities for them to build relationships with others in their church family (kids and grownups alike).
Children are always welcome in our worship service. Additionally, we have a nursery for kids birth to age 3 available from 9:05 to 11:45 every Sunday during the Adult Formation time and our worship service. In the nursery, kids are cared for by a paid nursery coordinator with help from volunteers from the church family. They get a snack, a Bible lesson and/or songs, and lots of loving attention!
Our Sunday school classes are for kids aged pre-school through high school. These Bible classes run in blocks, usually mid-September to Christmas with a couple weeks off, then early January to May with summers off. Though under the umbrella of KidsLife, our Young Adult Classes (referred to as YAC) offer specialized programming for middle school-high school students.
Safety for our kids: CityLife takes the security of our children very seriously and we screen and train every single youth volunteer using the SafeChurch program. For details, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Pastor Mitch, who oversees KidsLife.
