Our Children’s Ministry at Christian Fellowship Church

We believe that children are a gift from God and that He has created every human with a capacity to know His love. The activities we do as a church community equip and assist families to lead their children to Christ both practically and spiritually. Our desire is that families in Columbia, Mo, and across the world, maintain the truth of God in their value systems, traditions and daily interactions. To expand upon these efforts, we offer a ministry specifically suited to the needs of children. Through our children’s ministry, cfKidz, Christian Fellowship Church aims to engage our youth in Godly relationships with their peers, elders and heavenly Father.

Ministry to Children Through cfKidz

At Christian Fellowship Church, we understand the privilege and responsibility that accompanies teaching children about God. For this reason, we dedicate ample time and resources to our children’s ministry program, cfKidz. The first Sunday of each month, kids from birth through 5th grade, are invited to participate in worship designed specially for their age group. Our bible-driven curriculum is designed to ignite a passion for service, a love for God, and lay the groundwork for devout Christian faith intended to last a lifetime. We work diligently to provide a safe, encouraging space for kids to learn about the works of God and to begin their journey in Christ. The following factors contribute to our effort in meeting faith-based learning objectives and strengthening our church’s children’s ministry in Columbia, Mo.

A Children’s Ministry Based in Spirituality

We believe that God is our Father, Teacher, Savior, Friend, and so much more. As we lead our children in the life-long journey of truth, the Holy Spirit is our guide.

Our Children’s Ministry Curriculum

At Christian Fellowship Church, we use a variety of techniques to spread God’s word in a way that’s engaging, age appropriate, accurate and understandable for kids. With different tools, media and activities, we strive to keep children excited about embracing the identity of their Creator, King, Savior, and friend.

Roles for Parents and Volunteers in Our Children’s Ministry

The community at Christian Fellowship Church is truly invested in the well-being of our youth, and is led by dedicated parents and volunteers who treat each child as their own. Whether a parent or a member of the church, all volunteers are required to fill out an application and complete a thorough background check prior to working with our children’s ministry. Our church family is available to assist, support, encourage, and equip parents for spiritually leading their families in the way of truth. If you’re interested in volunteering in our children’s ministry or another area of the church, we would love your help!

A Christian Community Where Kids Can Grow

Christian Fellowship Church offers a diverse, empathetic and tight-knit Christian community in Columbia, Mo. Our community fosters close relationships within the church and each of our ministry programs collaborate in an effort to build their faith. One of the most unique influences on our children’s ministry are the members of our youth ministry who serve as honorable role-models and mentors. With ministries available to all age groups, children have years of learning to anticipate in their future.

When the following symptoms are present, a child should NOT be admitted to cfKidz ministry:

  • Fever > 100.4 in the last 24 hours,
  • Uncovered open sores,
  • Had more than 4 watery stools in the last 24 hours,

We realize that some children have gone for extended periods with a particular health problem. We desire to minister to the child and parent even when the child cannot be allowed into the nursery. We would encourage parents in this case to ask members of their small group to share their need by helping them care for the child in the overflow room or in the main auditorium.
