We love children at Christ the King Anglican Church! “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'” Matthew 19:14
Children are vital members of our church, and we believe that it is our responsibility to give them the tools and opportunities to establish a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ. During our 10:15 am Sunday worship service, children engage in a liturgical service just for them! A nursery is also available for your littlest ones on Sundays from 9 am – 12 pm. During the school year, Wednesday nights are filled with fellowship and discipleship to bring God’s truths into the hearts of our children. In the summer, don’t miss our Vacation Bible School week of fun and learning about God’s great love for us!
If you are interested in serving on our Children’s Ministry Team or want to learn more about the opportunities we offer for children, please contact Deacon Karen Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org
Children’s Church Ministry Children (Pre-K – 5th Grade) are invited to join us for Children’s Church during the 10:15 am Sunday service. Children meet up with the teachers and Children’s cross to the right of the Sanctuary at 10:15 am. Once children have gathered, they will exit down the stairwell and into rooms A and B of the Children and Youth Building. Children engage in a service that follows a liturgical flow on their level. This service includes a time of prayer for others, interactive worship songs, a lesson based on the Gospel readings and a game or craft to bring God’s Word to life!
Nursery Ministry Our Nursery is located in the Narthex, just to the left of the front door across from the bathrooms. A Nursery is available for children newborn-2 years of age on Sunday’s from 9 am – 12 pm. During this time, your littlest ones will receive a bible story, interactive play, prayer, and a snack. Safety and quality trainings have been provided to our Nursery staff so that you can feel comfortable trusting us with your most precious ones. There is also a wiggle room in the back of the sanctuary if you prefer to keep your child with you during the service.

Wednesday classes begin in mid-September and end in the month of May. Class times begin at 5:45 PM and end at 8:00 PM. Excellent teachers organize this evening for children in grades Kindergarten through Senior High.

Vacation Bible School:
Every summer, we host a hands-on Vacation Bible School Program. The themes for this program vary from year to year but one constant remains the same, “We offer a host of Biblically-based activities that will help children know, love, and serve the living God.” This annual event is a week-long and begins on Monday through Friday from 9:00 am till noon.
