Family Ministries


For Infant-4th grade

Our Mission: To serve and support families and children as they come to know Jesus Christ and then help them take the next step in their relationship with Him.

Our Vision: To partner with families as we encourage a new generation to seek Jesus Christ, share His love, and grow His Kingdom.

Children are important to us:

We strive to offer creative ways to partner with parents in their role as the most significant spiritual influence in their child's life. Every Sunday we invite children to experience God's love in dynamic ways. Each week we also offer worship materials so that children are fully engaged in our CLC multi-generational worship.

Volunteers - 9:00 am  Volunteers - 10:45 am

We equip children to respond with their hearts and lives, to live their faith, and to make a personal commitment to Christ. Our ministry is centered on Deuteronomy 6: 5-7:Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

For 5th - 8th Grade Students

Our mission is to GATHER young people together in a safe, welcoming environment where they are encouraged to dig into their faith and GROW in their relationship with Jesus. We use small groups, large group teachings, worship, service opportunities, games and more to connect with each other and with God; and through it all, we strive to live for Christ, bearing fruit to His glory and growing in our knowledge of Him. (Colossians 1:10)

2023/2024 Calendar of Events

In July 2023, 7 youth and three leaders ventured to Milwaukee Wisconsin to join Next Step Ministries in an urban service learning opportunity.  We grew in friendship, gratitude and joy in the work and people we met there.  We are excited for God’s “next step” for us this year!
