Children

Our goals are for children of Christ Church, from birth through 5th grade, to understand that they are known and loved by God and their church family, and that they belong to God’s family and the family of Christ Church.

Vacation Bible School – Aug. 7-11

VBS will take place Monday, Aug. 7 through Friday, Aug. 11, from 9 to noon each day. Ages three through current fourth graders are able to register for a week of time with friends and fun at church. Each day, we will enjoy a lesson with our clergy, along with art, games, music and more! Register today via this link.

Volunteers Needed for Vacation Bible School!

Planning is underway for this fun-filled week and we’d like YOU to join us! Creative planners, group leaders, craft leaders, a movement team, and a hype squad are needed! If you can join us in planning or for activities Aug. 7-11, contact Bailey Anthony at banthony@ccral.org or (919) 632-2712. Childcare will be available for volunteers during VBS week.

Craft Team

The Craft Team preps weekly creative additions to our lessons, especially for our youngest members. All supplies and easy directions are provided. Craft prep can be at home or at church. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Sarah Phipps at sphipps@ccral.org.

First Grade Communion Class

The first grade Sunday School class is taking part in a 12-week curriculum about Holy Communion. The series will culminate with a celebration for students and their families on Sunday, Apr. 16, at the 9 a.m. service.

Baptism

God gives us new life through the sacrament of Holy Baptism. There are designated Baptism Sundays during the year, typically the second Sunday of the month. When you are ready to plan for your child’s Baptism, please call Anderson Davis at the church office (834-6259 x100). It is wise to call in advance since it can take as long as 3 months to get on the calendar.

God’s Girls Bible Study

Fourth and fifth grade Girls’ Bible Study is held on Monday afternoons from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Christ Church. This group shares a devotion with time for connection and snack. Please email banthony@ccral.org for more information or to sign up.

Sunday School

Sunday School is held Sunday mornings from 10:10-10:50 a.m. in the Baker Wing. If you have a child in the 3-year old-class (children who are three before Aug. 31) to fifth grade, please register for Children’s Sunday school via this link.

Sunday School Teacher Openings!

Due to exceptional attendance from our three and four year olds, we are hoping to split the class into two rooms. We need volunteers to teach one to two times per month during the Sunday school hour. All lessons and materials are provided for these enthusiastic learners and each class has at least two teachers at a time. Contact Bailey Anthony for more information on this rewarding opportunity at banthony@ccral.org.

Sunday Nursery Care

Nursery and childcare is available each Sunday from 8:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Our nursery provides loving, safe and compassionate care for infants (8 weeks) through 4-year-olds. The paid nursery staff are the primary caregivers for the children in the nursery. Here is how our nursery classrooms are broken down:

  • Infant nursery: infants 8 weeks and older (until they are walking comfortably)
  • Toddler nursery: toddlers through 2-year-olds
  • 2-year-old classroom: children who turned 2 before Aug. 31, 2021
  • 3-year-old classroom: children who were 3 before Aug. 31, 2021
  • 4-year-old classroom: children who were 4 before Aug. 31, 2021
