Children are a vital part of City Church. It's our joy to partner with parents in journeying with their children in the forming of their faith and friendships.
We are committed to the mandate expressed in Proverbs 22:6, training and discipling children in the ways of the Lord!
During our Sunday services, children ages 0 - 11 years are split up into four age brackets. You can read more about each below.
Registration for City Church Kids takes place in the balcony foyer from 10am until 11am on a Sunday morning. Once the announcement that City Church Kids is about to start appears on the screen, parents of Busybees & Butterflies can escort their children to these classes. Lions and Lambs are free to make their way to the door leading to the basement (clearly signposted!) where they'll be escorted down by the team.
