Children

Our mission is to be a loving community where students come to know and walk with Christ.

It is our privilege to share God’s love, and together with parents, to build a spiritual foundation that lasts a lifetime.

Our vision is to be one in Christ through:  

  • worship
  • Christian friendship
  • service
  • and growth as disciples

Worship

Children’s Message

Each Sunday there will be a special message on the day’s Scripture geared to kids.

Sunday School (3 years old-5th grade)

(Formerly known as Children's Church)

This fall, Children’s Church will be changing to Sunday School and takes place during service. We are currently offering in-person Sunday School during our 8:30 outdoor service. After the children's message, the kids may go with the leader down to the preschool patio. Sunday School takes place outside on our preschool patio with social distancing rules. Parents pick up their children at the end of service. All children are welcome to join, for questions and concerns and to sign up for Sunday School, please email Josiah at Josiahclcrsm@gmail.com 

Sunday School Online Zoom (1st- 5th)

We will also be offering an online zoom option for those that are not able to join us for in-person activities. This will be offered every Sunday from 9:30-10 am. We will all start together and then break out into breakout rooms. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Josiah at Josiahclcrsm@gmail.com. 

Nursery Care

Due to health concerns nursery care has been suspended. Typically it is a staffed nursery for infants through age 3 is available throughout the morning for both worship services as well as during the Sunday school hour. It is open to all who remain on campus, during worship. Excellent nursery care is provided by trained and screened staff members. As you leave the sanctuary turn left and follow the walkway to the classroom with the blue door in the preschool area of our campus.

Cry Room

The Cry Room is temporarily unavailable on Sundays. It will not be open due to health concerns. Typically the Cry Room, with a view of the sanctuary, is available for infants and parents.  Stay tuned for when we will reopen it.

Next Summer:

VBS (Vacation Bible School) -  Ages 3 years old - 5th grade VBS is our most popular summer ministry for children. VBS provides a safe place for kids to come learn about Jesus and play. Youth and adult crew members work side by side getting to know all the kids and building lasting friendships. VBS has been a great way for us to connect with the larger community in South Orange County. Service and outreach are a large focus. This event gets the whole church involved.
