Children and Families

Families Thrive Here

In addition to our robust Children’s Formation program, we host special activities and events for children and families throughout the year, to deepen children’s worship experiences, provide inter-generational learning and fellowship opportunities, and make a connection to family faith life at home.

There are special worship services for children during holy times, a Wednesday night family series during Lent that focuses on community service and spirituality, and a week-long Vacation Bible School program in the summer that draws children from all over our community. Guest speakers visit several times a year to speak about parenting issues, giving us tools we can use at home to foster open communication with our kids.

Follow our Facebook Page for Children’s Christian Formation at CEC for news and current events. To learn about volunteering in Children’s Formation, contact Catherine Montgomery.

Sunday Morning Small Groups for Parents

Are you interested in connecting with other parents while your children attend Sunday School?  We are currently putting together small groups for parents based on the age of their children, to provide a self-led space for fellowship, support and spiritual growth.  JOIN A SMALL GROUP


Ages 4 months – 5 years

Available on Sundays from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., and Wednesdays from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Our excellent nursery staff seek to provide a safe, warm and loving environment including the use of Bible stories, songs and crafts.

Mothers (of all ages) form a network of mutual spiritual support in this vibrant ministry. MOMS provides a group experience of learning, praying and ministering to one another, opportunities for personal and spiritual growth in a faith-sharing environment. There are peer led book studies, play dates, current topic sessions and many opportunities for fellowship and female bonding throughout the year. We do all of this while having a great time together!
