City Kids is our ministry to children & their families.
We believe every child deserves to be loved unconditionally and have a safe place to learn about, question, and experience God's love. In City Kids, children have the opportunity to play, make friends, sing songs and learn the Gospel on their level. We believe that parents have the primary privilege of teaching their children. Therefore, our friendly, trained, and screened volunteers are committed to partnering with and equipping parents to help their children grow in Christ.
Kids are precious to us, and we realize you may have more questions about what to expect when you drop your children off and how they’ll be taken care of. If you have any questions about City Kids, we invite you to contact Bethany Fisher, our City Kids director.
We host a children's environment every Sunday during the gathering.
On Sundays, parents have the option of signing their child into City Kids. Kids are welcome to participate in the main gathering as well! The entrance to City Kids is located at the northwest corner of the building (along Elmira Street.) Registration begins at 9:45am on Sunday mornings.
Infant - 2 years
The nursery has a monthly theme teaching kids about Jesus including songs and games. (We're okay with crying babies! If a child cries longer than 15 minutes, we will text parents.)
PreK (3-4 Years)
Preschoolers learn songs, work on a short memory verse, work on a letter of the week, and have a Bible lesson that correlates with the sermon each week.
Kindergarten & 5 years old
Our 5Ks learn songs, memorize scripture, and work on crafts that go along with their Bible lesson based on the same scripture used in the sermon.
Kids will share in a Bible lesson based on that week's sermon, memorize scripture, and then join the church to participate in the worship response time.
4th - 6th Grade
Meets at 9:45am. Students meet for a brief time to study the New City Catechism, learning and rehearsing deep truths about Jesus and the Gospel. Students will join their families before the sermon.
All City Kids volunteers have obtained the appropriate clearances required by PA State Law.
