Jesus welcomes and loves the little children. The disciples of Jesus turned the parents and children away, but Jesus said "let the little children come to me" (Matthew 19:14). In Mark 10:15, Jesus said, "Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it", and he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." ~Matthew 19:14~

Indeed, children are precious in the eyes of God! The children's ministry here at CBC is committed to bringing children to Jesus, introducting them to the character of Jesus and His saving grace, and helping them develop a relationship with Him as they grow spiritually.

Our Visions

Children are the largest mission field in the world, and we are charged to reach out to boys and girls for God!

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. ~Proverbs 22:6~

Our Missions

Children are a gift from God entrusted to our care. We strive to partner with parents and co-workers who are committed to serving in the Children's Ministry to carry out our missions:

  • ministering to children that they may come to know, accept, love and follow Jesus Christ
  • helping children in building personal relationships with Jesus, that they may be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and live according to the likeness of Christ
  • nurturing children spiritually that they may grow and thrive in Christ's love
