About cfKids Ministry

Our deep hope is that the heart of every child, teen, and parent in our midst would be captured by Jesus and his grace as revealed through his life, death, and resurrection. This means that we aim for families to not just know about Jesus or merely obey his teachings, but to grow in deep trust of him and in response, live a flourishing, grace-filled life with him and with his people for the sake of our neighbors and nations. We want to actively cultivate environments and relationships that grow trust with God and others. 

Our core values are:
  • Christ-Centered 
  • Holy Spirit Filled  
  • Transforming
  • Safe  
  • Joy
  • Grace
  • Relational
  • Peacemaking
worship - prayer - community

Building His Kingdom
Serving the Next Generation

Our ministry is primarily staffed by volunteers (adults and youth) who serve our children ages 0-11 years old. We offer a range of enrichment and learning opportunities in small group environments where transparency and growth are encouraged as a team.

We are seeing an explosion of growth in cfKids, which is amazing! God is doing great things in the lives of our children. As a result of this growth, there is an urgent need for volunteers in cfKids Ministry.

We are asking every CF family to commit one person to serve 1x per month. Click the button below to apply today.

Parent Coaching

Let’s be honest, there are so many moments in parenting that are beyond what we can manage and deal with alone. In fact, it is because we are not meant to parent in isolation. We are a community of people who walks authentically in the mess and joys of life, understanding that we are never without hope since we have the Holy Spirit living in us.

Contact us for pastoral care, parent coaching and creative solutions, brainstorming and prayer.

Dedication-86

The activities we do as a church community equip and assist families to lead their children to Christ. Our cfKids discipleship team engages children in discipleship relationships with their peers, adults, Heavenly Father, our Savior Jesus, Holy Spirit, and the Bible.

cfKids Classes

On your first visit, we encourage you to come about 10 minutes before the start of the service to register your child(ren) for children’s ministry. On your first visit, we require all guardians checking in children to provide a first and last name and phone number. Required children’s information includes their name, DOB, gender, and special needs/allergies. We encourage you to familiarize your child(ren) with the space and linger with them until they are comfortable with their class and leader. This is especially important as we transition to bringing children to large group settings if they have not been to “in person” events in the last number of months.

Nursing Mother’s Room: We have a room dedicated to nursing mothers that has comfortable seating, low lights, streamed service, bottled water, and a changing table.

Family Rooms: We understand that life with infants and toddlers means there is a lot of time you are not participating in the service while you are in the auditorium. We have many options for you to go to on a Sunday morning if you need a different location for a clingy and busy toddler or a fussy baby who needs to be walked while fed. We have comfortable couches and a microwave and fridge available for taking care of mama’s milk. Until we are back at full capacity, our blue room is equipped with toys and a live stream feed of the service and is available for families as well. This is an ideal way to transition children in the separation anxiety stage to nursery care.

If your group would like to receive childcare services, please contact us for more information as we support all areas of ministry in the church.
