Children and Youth

The Christ Church congregation is very family-oriented, with parishioners of all ages and numerous young families.  We consider our youth to be vital to our church family.  We strive to have children of all ages involved in the church service and other church activities.  Programs, both educational and spiritual, are currently in place for all of our children.

 

Youth Education (LOGOS): 

The LOGOS youth group for middle and high school youth meets each Sunday during the school year after the 10:00 service.  The LOGOS session is from 11:30 to 12:30 and includes Bible study, Chimes, Activities and Lunch. Guests are invited to attend as well.  The leaders help to bring the stories and lessons of the Bible to life, in ways that are relevant to the lives of the students. 
Throughout the year, there are chime choir performances, outings, fundraisers, days of service, an overnight lock-in at the church, and a year-end day trip. Adult volunteers are always welcome to participate.

Church School 

Church School offers Christian education to children 3 years old through 5th grade. The children meet after the 10 AM service, and classes are dismissed at 12:15 pm.  We have three classes:  Preschool – Kindergarten, 1st-3rd grade, and 4th & 5th grade.  Each class has two or more teachers.

 

The two younger classes use a Godly Play curriculum.  Godly Play is a Montessori based program that was developed as a means for children to know God using age appropriate language and materials. Godly Play creates a sacred space in which to present the stories of our faith, to wonder about them, and to allow the children open-ended opportunities to enter the story on their own terms either by using the story telling materials, or using art supplies.  It is play, and it is Godly.

 

The 4th-5thgrade class uses a traditional curriculum called “Living the Good News.”  The curriculum is based on the Revised Common Lectionary, and lessons are centered on the Gospel reading for the week.

 

Throughout the year, additional programs are included for the children. These programs include the annual Christmas pageant, "burying of the Alleluia," and A “Children’s Walk Through Holy Week.”

We emphasize the importance ofoutreach to the children through special programs including making hot mealsand breakfast bags for the Aid for Friends program.
