Nursery & Children’s Ministry

Please note that our Nursery and SWAG programs are not being held during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Effective Sept. 6, our Children’s Ministry program will be held during our 11am Outdoor In-Person Service. Children are required to wear masks and pre-registration is required. For more information, please contact the office.

The Nursery @ Christ Church

The brightly decorated second-floor nursery is available for children from birth-age 3 from 9:45-11:45am each Sunday morning to allow parents to enjoy coffee & snacks before and after services.

The Nursery is staffed with a trained, paid childcare worker and a volunteer. Everyone working directly with children has completed all background checks required by the State of Pennsylvania. Additionally, our paid childcare provider has completed an extensive background check, and volunteers have completed an online Child Protection Program required by our Diocese.

A Koala Care Baby Changing Station is available in the nursery (there are extra diapering supplies just in case!) and there is a child-friendly restroom. Click here for more specific information on our policies and procedures.


Children’s Ministry for Kids Ages 4-5th Grade

Children’s Ministry is held at 10am in the Parish Hall (first floor.) New families should complete and submit a Registration Form to make sign-in quicker!

The program includes a focused lesson time, Bible reading, an art, discussion, or drama opportunity, and music. Children attend communion as a group and return to the Parish Hall for parents to pick up after the service ends.

Fifth graders may also choose to enroll in our SWAG class if they feel ready to dig deeper into their exploration of the Bible.

The heart of Children’s Ministry lies in our volunteers!  There are countless opportunities for you to get involved.  If you would like to get involved but aren’t sure how, please contact our Children’s Minister Josh Gerdes.
