Children's Ministry

At Cedar Falls Baptist Church, we believe we are called by God to invest in our children as they are truly a gift from the Lord. We are committed to sharing unconditional love and tools to help them grow in the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to inspire them by our example and dedication to the great commission and greatest commandment. It is our goal that all the children who come through our doors know:

  1. You are important to Jesus - Jesus said, Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such things belongs the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 19:14.) Throughout the Bible it is clear children are important and they are important to us.
  2. You need a firm foundation - Direct your children onto the right path and when they are older, they will not leave it (Proverbs 22:6.)  The time we invest in our children at a young age impacts the rest of their lives.
  3. You are the NOW generation - We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about His power and His mighty wonder (Psalm 78:4.) We know children are being prepared for the calling on their life and they make a difference now.
  4. You are the future leaders of our church - as our children grow, we recognize how important it is to support them and give them a church family as one day they will be the leaders.
  5. You are fearfully and wonderfully made as a unique individual by a God who loves you and wants to know you - we know for some, this may be the one time they truly experience God's unconditional love. It is so important to raise up children who know their worth in Christ and know their Father yearns to care for them.
Sunday School

Sunday School is a time for children to study the Bible through learning of different stories. They have the opportunity to participate in activities and crafts to reinforce what they have learned. Sunday School is broken into classes based on age:

  • PreK-Kindergarten (ages 4 and up)
  • 1st & 2nd grades
  • 3rd & 4th grades
  • 5th & 6th grades

All children Sunday School classrooms are located on the Children's Sunday School wing.

Children's Church

Children's Church is a time for the children to experience worship in a way that is geared specifically for them and their needs. It takes place during the 11am worship hour and is open to children 4 years old through 2nd grade. During this time, children learn more about God's word and have a different interactive station to help reiterate the lesson being taught.

Children are dismissed for Children's Church after the Children's Moment in the 11am service. Children's Church is located in the library.

Children's Moment

 

Every Sunday we are blessed to have a "Children's Moment" as part of our weekly service. This is a special time in the life of our service. Take a moment to check it out and share it with a child in your life!

Children's Choir

The Children's Choir is an opportunity for children to worship and praise through music and song. With various opportunities throughout the year, the children have the opportunity to express their love for Christ and share it with others. It builds a foundation for them to build upon as they continue to grow in their faith.

The children practice different songs, musical programs and the ocassional joint musical endeavor in which they share with the congregation during 11:00 am worship service and other various special events throughout the year.

Toddler Storytime

Toddler Story Time is a great way to spend a morning! Children have the opportunity to fellowship with one another and be surrounded by the wonders found only in a good story. With caring leaders who have experience working with children of all ages, young minds are wowed with the awe and wonder of all around them. Caregivers are encouraged to either stay for the stories or relax with a cup of coffee in the fellowship hall and fellowship with one another during this time. 

Toddler Storytime is free and open to all children ages 18 months to 4 years of age.

Annual Events

In addition to special services where children participate, we have special annual events just for our children. Three of our most noteable are:

  1. Vacation Bible School. The official theme may vary but its always about Jesus! Through song, crafts, activities and lessons children have the opportunity to experience the awe, wonder and truth that lies in Christ. 
  2. Children's Summer Camp. Everyone loves summer camp and for one week every summer children love CentriKid!
  3. Summer Activities. Regular Wednesday activities may end for the summer but the fun and learning don't! There is always something to plug into every Wednesday night.
