As parents, we work really hard to develop our children’s minds at school and their bodies in sports, but how much time do we devote to developing their spirits? At Christ the King, we put a lot of care into developing age-appropriate curriculum and fun activities for our kids to engage their hearts and foster their growth.
Both on Sunday mornings and during the week, we see our kids as active, valuable members in our community.
Birth – 18 months | Sweetpeas
From the first months a child’s journey, we’re building trust with parents and trust with other children.
18 months – 3 years | Seedlings
Building on the first year-and-a-half, we’re developing confidence in teachers, in our own abilities and in church as a safe place.
3 years – kindergarten | Sprouts
On the way from toddling to kindergarten, we’re building an understanding that God loves me, God made me and God wants to be my friend.
kindergarten – 3rd grade | Treehouse
By school age, we’re forming relationships with healthy role models and with Jesus and relating faith principles to the world around us.
4th grade – 5th grade | Ignite
As children transition from elementary school to middle school, we empower them to see their place in the church, in the Kingdom of God and in the world.
6th grade – 8th grade | Creed
In middle school, we’re building the foundations of our faith and putting it into practice in extra-curricular events and service opportunities.
During the Week
Rooted Discipleship Program | 3 years – 12th grade
Parents check their kids in at the kiosks in the lobby and the bring them to the sanctuary where they join their class for fun praise songs, silly skits and games all pointing to a central theme bringing them deeper in their faith.
After the large-group time, the children split into gender- and age-specific classes. Each group fosters deep discussion about the Bible, emphasizes Scripture memorization, and helps build lasting friendships and mentoring relationships.
Aftershock Student Ministry | 9th – 12th grade
At Aftershock, we alternate between a verse-by-verse study of the Bible and relevant, topical discussions—mixed in with playing crazy games and building friendships. We keep an open dialogue to encourage students to ask questions about their faith that can otherwise be intimidating, because we want to encourage them to seek God and hear what God has to say to them.
Most months, we have an extra, fun-activity night—like laser tag, bonfires and cookouts—and we encourage them to bring friends.
How Do I Get Connected?
We’re excited to have you visit, and if you feel any leading to keep hanging out, we want you to be connected. Here’s what that looks like.
Does CTK Do?
All of us are called to and created for ministry. Some of it’s in our daily lives, and some of it we do together. See where we put faith to practice.
How Can I Join
a Small Group?
Church happens on more than Sundays. Being part of a community is about sharing life together, and we invite you to share life with us.
Beliefs are important because our convictions shape how we live. What we believe and how we live is ultimately determined by what we love.
