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.


Registration is now open for our first ever Children’s Baptism Bash on August 19th at 4pm. The bash will include the Baptism service at Navarre Beach, followed by food, fun & fellowship. The service will be held at the Sea Turtle Pavilion on Navarre Beach on Sunday, 8/19 at 4pm just for children!

Registration is preferred so that we can order the appropriate resources. A “Jump Start” class talking about Baptism, what it means, and why we do it will be offered prior to the date of this service for all who would like to attend. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the children’s ministry team at kmcgrew@clc.life.Register today!



2018 Third Grade Bible Presentation

Sunday, September 23, 2018

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.
