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 Children Ages 4-8th Grade
Summer Sunday School
Just because school is out doesn’t mean that Sunday School is over—our Children’s Ministry program will continue all summer! We will spend LOTS of time outdoors, so please dress accordingly.
Sunday mornings @ 10am
Classes are held from 10-10:40am (children return to the Sanctuary at the Peace, just before communion) for children ages 4-8th grade.
Ages 4 thru 5th Grade
This age group meets in the Parish Hall on our main floor. The program includes a focused lesson time, Bible reading, an art, discussion, or drama opportunity, and music. The 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, Tami Fire.
Ages 6th Grade+
This age group meets 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. Students 6th grade & up are invited to check out this class with our Youth Minister, Canon Tracey to help address these questions of identity & more.
