Discovery Nursery is for ages Infant - 24 mo.
In our Baby and Toddler rooms, children Experience God's love. Your child will be cared for by loving adults and youth helpers that show God's love. Children will learn about God through Bible stories and songs.

Discovery Park is for ages 2 yrs. - PreK 5 yrs.
In Discovery Park, children Discover God, His love and His Word. They worship together by singing high energy worship songs, then break into small groups for Bible lessons. The 2s and 3s learn about God with hands-on lessons. The lessons for 4s and 5s are engaging video Bible stories. All groups participate in Bible-based activities, have a snack and enjoy free play in Discovery Park!

What to Expect
When you enter the building, you will be greeted by a volunteer who will take you to the Children's Registration Station. The Registration Volunteer will have you complete a brief Information Form for our computer database. You will receive stickers with a number for your child, their belongings, and for you. You will need this number to pick up your child at the end of the service. If we contact you during the service, the number will be shown on the screen in the auditorium. Pagers are available if you are attending one of the adult classes.

While you are worshiping, your child will participate in an age-appropriate worship experience!

After service, bring your sticker with your child's number to Discovery Nursery/Discovery Park. A greeter will bring your child to you.

We hope you and your family enjoy worshiping at Christ's Church.

Baptism Class
We provide a class for 4th & 5th grade students who have recently been baptized OR are considering being baptized. This class will teach the children many aspects of Christianity – what it means to become a Christian, baptism, the Lord’s Supper, prayer, faith, and the New Testament Church. If you would like for your child to be in a class, please contact

Safety Measures
For your child’s safety and for ease in checking the children in to their classes, we use an automated check-in procedure. With this system, the parent will receive name badges for each of their children. These badges will display information identifying them to their proper rooms. There will be a family call number assigned to each family as well. This number will be displayed in the main service on the large screen, should a need arise with your child.

After service, bring your check-in sticker with your child's number and a volunteer will send your child out to you.
