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 4-8th Grade
Classes are held from 10-10:40am (children return to the Sanctuary at the Peace, just before communion.) New families should complete and submit an Registration Form to make sign-in quicker!
Ages 4 thru 5th Grade | first floor Parish Hall
Sunday School begins at 10am and includes a focused lesson time, Bible reading, an art, discussion, or drama opportunity, and music. Children remain in Sunday School until approximately 10:40am. During the Announcements, parents are asked to pick up their children in the Parish Hall so that they can join their families for Communion and remain with them for the rest of the service (note that children must be supervised by their parent/guardian once signed out of Children’s Ministry programs.)
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.
Ages 6th-8th Grade | third floor classroom 1
Students 6th-8th grade up are invited join this weekly class held on our third floor. As students head into the teen years, sometimes they forget who they are—a beloved child of God who has been saved by the amazing grace that Christ pours out from the cross.
