The Children’s Ministry serves preschoolers (3 year old potty trained through kindergarten) in a cooperative effort between the church and the home as parents and the Children’s Ministry Department team up to teach preschoolers about Jesus. Our elementary kids (1st through grade 5) offers relevant Bible studies, as well as many other fun and educational activities and programs. We provide biblically-based, age-appropriate Bible studies, dynamic worship, as well as many other fun and educational events that help to disciple all of our CVBC KIDS.
– Check out the different programs and services we have for kids below.
Children's Church Each Sunday
The main emphasis for our Sunday School is helping children develop a lifelong habit of reading God’s Word. At 10:15 am we have classes for 3 year old through 5th grade. We use a Bible-based curriculum to help students develop a solid understanding of the Bible by modeling Bible reading while encouraging Bible reading during the week.
