Children

Our aim as a team is not to simply offer programs and activities that fill time and aren’t boring, but to have a genuine partnership with families and young adults that moves us toward authentic faith formation and discipleship in the ways of Jesus.  While we still offer age-specific programming, we strive to live into our multi-generational vision by equipping parents and caring adult mentors to champion their roles as disciple-makers of the next generation.  Keep reading to see what’s happening at CMC and how we can walk together in following Jesus.

CARE CENTERS

SUNDAY MORNINGS & WEDNESDAY EVENINGS

Our Care Center is for infants and toddlers (ages birth-3 years old). They play in a safe and caring environment, and snacks are given out according to age and allergy needs.

If you are a nursing mother, we also offer a nursing room. Our nursing room is quiet and private, located within our special needs space. This room is available whenever children’s programming is in session, and is equipped with a closed circuit TV system so that you can enjoy the service on Sunday mornings as well.

Our Care Centers and Nursing Room are all available on Sunday’s during church service times as well as on Wednesday evenings from 5:45pm to 7:30pm for families participating in our programming opportunities.

We use a computer check-in/check-out system to ensure your child is accurately and safely accounted for at all times while under our care. During programming times, we have attendants at our registration desk who are available to answer any questions and walk you through the registration process.
