About CCCMD’s Children Ministry
Many of the children at CCCMD were born into the church, while others are the first ones in their family to come. It is often in these early years that children accept Jesus as their Savior, so we desire to provide a solid foundation for their entire Christian life. As they come week after week, we ask God to help us bless them, and teach them to bless each other. The Lower School consists of children ages 3 to 6. Our goals for the children in Lower School are for them to:
- know that God loves them
- experience Salvation
- learn to sing and worship God
The Upper School consists of children ages 7 to 11. Our goals for the children in Upper School are for them to:
start to develop a daily devotional habit (using “Keys for Kids”).
This includes reading the Bible daily, writing down their favorite verse from their reading that day, and praying daily.
start to learn Bible truth/doctrine (e.g. the Apostle’s Creed)
memorize as many Bible verses as possible
learn to fellowship with other Christian friends
learn to worship God and serve God by singing, playing instruments, acting in a play, helping teachers with classroom chores, etc.
We have Children’s Sunday School classes every Sunday from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. The Sunday School classes are divided into:
- Preschool (ages 3 to 5)
- Kindergarten (ages 5 to 6)
- Middler (ages 7 to 9)
- Junior (ages 10 to 11)
The children join the adults in worship from 10:45 to 11:30 a.m. and then separate out for their own Children’s Church class from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Children’s Church is combined Lower School and Upper School. Each Sunday School teacher is serious about his/her commitment to these children. The teachers show real faith, with persistence in prayer, both in and out of church, believing that one day these seeds that are sown will bear much fruit.
