The Children’s Ministry at Central Christian Church exists to reach children with the good news about God’s plan for their lives, to help families connect to the church and to equip kids to share Christ’s love with others and change our world. At CCC, we are committed to partnering with you to lay firm foundations of faith in the lives of your children. Each week, our committed, caring teachers will engage children in hands-on learning of Biblical concepts that will remain with them for the rest of their lives (and they will have fun too!). Feel free to drop in on the children’s classes at any time and check them out.

CHILD SAFETY

At Central we take the safety of your child seriously. All volunteers working with children must undergo a multi-level screening process including a criminal background check. We utilize a child check-in system on Sunday mornings to help ensure your child is secure.

NURSERY

Our nursery exists to provide a safe, nurturing environment in which biblical principles, servanthood, and compassion can be taught and modeled to children in their earliest days. Little ones from birth through 36 months are pampered each week by loving, committed volunteers. We ensure our worker to child ratio remains low so each child can get the attention and care he or shedeserves. Our nursery is available each Sunday and Wednesday beginning 15 minutes prior to the start of services. We consider it a privilege to care for your precious child.

 FAQ:

Are breastfeeding facilities available?

Breastfeeding mothers are invited to use the church parlor located by the narthex to feed their babies in a comfortable setting.

Are snacks given to my child?

Snacks are offered to children age 1 year old and up. If your child has special dietary restrictions or needs, please inform us at check-in.

What if my child cries when I leave him/her?

Most children will adjust quickly. Our teachers and volunteers are trained to deal with upset children. If your child does not settle down after a few minutes, the teacher will contact you via pager or your cell phone.

What safety and security measures are in place?

Volunteers and staff undergo a multilevel screening process including a criminal background check. The doors to the nursery and toddler classrooms are equipped with special locks that ensure only authorized individuals and parents may enter the room. All children are given security tags at check-in.  Any person picking a child up must present a matching code before the child will be released.
