At CMBC, it is our goal to partner with parents to help their children advance in their personal relationship with God. We want our children to grow like Jesus, “in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” Luke 2:52

As a church, we are focused on being the “Love of Jesus in our world through our example, our actions and our words,” and we want to teach the children to do the same. We want every child to trust Jesus in a way that transforms how they love God, themselves and the world around them.

“…we will tell the NEXT GENERATION the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done.” Psalm 78:4

NURSERY 6 weeks to 2 years

We believe that it’s never too early to be teaching children that God loves them. In the nursery, we demonstrate God’s love with our words and actions - getting on the floor to interact with crawlers; holding and rocking infants’ making sure they are fed and diapered each hour; singing and telling them how much God loves them! Parents may worship and be encouraged by God’s Word with complete assurance that their little ones are being safely and lovingly cared for by our dedicated volunteers.

TODDLERS Age 2 and 3 years

Using FIRST LOOK curriculum, each week the children sit down for a simple Bible lesson which is reinforced with puppets, interactive play, music and/or video. This simple and fun curriculum repeats one basic truth all month long. We want each child to understand these core truths before they graduate from the toddler class:

  1. God Made Me (Psalm 139:13-14)

  2. God Loves Me (Romans 8:38-39)

PRESCHOOL 4 years to Kindergarten

In preschool, we introduce the kids to the WONDER OF GOD using engaging activities to tickle all five senses and learning styles. FIRST LOOK is simple and fun, repeating one basic truth all month long, as well as memory verse. Building on the basics learned in the toddler class, by Kindergarten, we want each child to understand these core truths?

  1. God Made Me (Psalm 139:13-14)

  2. God Loves Me (Romans 8:38-39)

  3. Jesus wants to be my friend forever (John 3:16)

ELEMENTARY 1st through 5th grade

Using Life'was’s “Explore the Bible” curriculum, we want to help kids dig deep into God’s Word! Every lesson brings the Bible to life through rich study and engaging object lessons, equips kids with foundational Bible knowledge and skills, and encourages them to live what they learn everywhere they go.

By the time each student graduates from Children’s Ministry, we want them to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to master these FIVE FAITH SKILLS:

  1. Navigate the Bible (survey and locate verses)

  2. Personalize Scripture (memorize and apply verses

  3. Dialogue with God (public and private prayer)

  4. Articulate Faith (share and defend beliefs)

  5. Worship with your Life (praise and give)
