Welcome to Children's Ministries at Christ Church! Our spiritual commitment to our children and youth is deep. We recognize that as members of the body of Christ, we are responsible for the nurture and development of their faith. Baptism is the beginning of a life journey of faith. We uphold the Children's Charter for the Church, and we strive to adhere to its guidelines. The Children's Charter calls us to receive, nurture, and treasure each child as a gift from God. The church is also called to nurture and support families in caring for their children, acting in their children's best interest, and recognizing and fostering their children's spirituality and unique gifts. Finally, in ministry of the children, the church is called to foster community beyond the family unit, in which children and adults know each other by name, minister to each other, and are partners together in serving Christ in the world.

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it. - Luke 18:16-17
