Children Are Important to Us!

Children of all ages are welcome and important at Community Church.  Children are welcome in worship and at events and we are working hard to be ever more inter-generational.  In addition to sitting with care givers in worship, we have space (when we are worshiping inside) dedicated for young children in the sanctuary and out in the narthex where the service can still be seen and heard.  Children 3rd grade and younger are also invited to go to a age appropriate sharing and discovery time part way through the service.  This summer children are reading books about different kinds of families and in the Fall we will begin a really exciting curriculum called "A Joyful Path".  Strollers are welcome (please use the front entrance) in the sanctuary, and expectant mother/young children parking is located in the front of the building, if that might help.

Called to Care is a resource which helps a church or other organization: ♦ develop a care-giving program. 
♦ train caregivers. 
♦ continue to develop and support the program and the caregivers.
