CONNECT Children’s Ministry

WELCOME TO CONNECT CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

FOR CHILDREN BIRTH – 5TH GRADE


Our goal in Children’s Ministry is to partner with parents by offering spiritual guidance, Bible-based teaching, age-appropriate events, and a lot of fun! We accomplish this in a safe and secure environment where every child feels loved.

Children’s Ministry at Community Life Church is based on the “ORANGE” philosophy. ORANGE is a path, a strategy, that combines the strength of two—YELLOW (representing the light of the church) and RED (the heart of the home)—to create the brilliance of another, ORANGE.
By combining the critical influences of the light of the church and the love of the family, the ORANGE strategy synchronizes efforts and shows a generation who God is, more effectively than either could alone.

Each Sunday morning during the 9:00am and 10:30am services we offer: 

Safe, clean, quality childcare for children ages birth – 3 years old.

Fun, interactive, small group/large group Sunday school for students Pre-K – 5th grade.

THIRD GRADE BIBLES


Third Grade Bible Presentation

Each year, in the fall, we present all 3rd grade students with a fun, interactive, brand new Bible of their own during a special service on Sunday morning.

Our greatest hope in giving children a Bible to read and explore is that they will come to know Jesus as the one who loves us, the one who defeated evil and conquered death for us, and the one who will always be with us to be our helper and our guide.
