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.

 

Sunday School for Children Ages 4-8th Grade

Classes are held from 10-10:40am (children return to the Sanctuary at the Peace, just before communion.)

Ages 4 thru 5th Grade in the Parish Hall

Sunday School begins at 10am and 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.)

Middle School and High School

Sunday School for middle school aged kids (grades 6-8) is offered each Sunday @ 10am with Youth Minister Tracey Russell. This class meets on our third floor in the Children’s Ministry Suite.

Youth Group designed for sixth through twelfth grades is held every Saturday from 7-9pm in the Discipleship House, our youth-only space!

Our Confirmation program is run concurrently with the Youth Alpha program. Please visit that page for more information.

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 Tami.
