Children’s Ministry provides programs of faith formation and fellowship for our littlest Lutherans, from birth through 5th grade.
THE LEARNING HOUR
During the school year, all are welcome to join us on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 am to learn more about God’s Word. Children’s Ministry provides programs of faith formation and fellowship for our littlest Lutherans, from birth through fifth grade.
*Children Kindergarten through fourth grade enjoy a multi-sensory learning environment where they study one Bible story for four to five weeks. Through story-telling, art, movies, cooking, and games, these children don’t just learn about God, they become intimate with their faith and experience God each week in a different way.
*Fifth graders enjoy their very own program that focuses on service. In addition to studying and discussing scripture lessons, fifth graders plan and execute service projects to benefit the community.
BIBLE PRESENTATIONS TO PRESCHOOLERS AND FIRST GRADERS
At CTS, placing the word of God into our children’s hands is of extreme importance. For this reason, every fall we present preschoolers and first graders with their very own Bibles. Prior to receiving their Bibles, children and their parents are invited to attend a class where they learn about the importance of reading God’s Word.
Holy Communion is part of our weekly worship at Christ the Servant. We understand this sacramental meal to be the Lord’s Supper with Christ as the host. Communion is open to all ages. When children reach third grade, they are invited to attend the annual Communion Class in the spring.
Each week, children are invited to place an offering in the globe. The children then decide where they would like their donations to go. Our globe money is currently going to ELCA Disaster Relief.
SUMMER CAMP AT SKY RANCH
Each summer, children are invited to strengthen their faith by participating in either a two- or five-night camp experience at Sky Ranch. 2017 dates are July 16-21.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Every June our children embark on a new adventure. VBS provides them a week-long opportunity to learn about God through songs, science, stories and snacks! We are kicking off our Fun Factory a little earlier than usual, so please note the dates June 5th-9th from 9:00am-12:00pm. Imagine a world where curious kids become hands-on inventors who discover they're lovingly crafted by God. Welcome to the Maker Fun Factory!
BIBLE BUDDIES (K-2nd)
Bible Buddies is a Youth Group just for kids in Kindergarten, first and second grade. Bible Buddies gather for fun activities, such as game nights, ice skating, service events, or movies & pizza. We ask parents of Bible Buddies to consider coordinating an event each year.
CRAZIE CHRISTIANS (3rd-5th)
Crazie Christians is a Youth Group just for kids in third through fifth grade. Crazie Christians get together for fun activities, such as “make-your-own-pizza” night, bowling, pumpkin patch visits, canned goods scavenger hunts, or water-park outings. Each year, we ask parents of Crazie Christians to consider coordinating an event.
At Christ the Servant, children are a very important part of our community. Children of all ages are welcome to attend the worship service, but for those children (5 and under) who would prefer a Nursery setting or could use a break from the sanctuary, there is a professionally staffed nursery available. (Please ask an usher)
