Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry at Christ the King serves children age 0–5th grade and their families. Children are welcomed, valued, protected, and lovingly cared for while they learn who Jesus is, how to follow Him, and how the truths of the Bible can help them to make Godly choices.  Please visit the Children’s Ministry Welcome Area on Sunday morning to meet some of our staff and volunteers and to sign in your children.

We are seeking a Director of Children’s Ministry to begin in April/May 2019. Click here to learn more.

Nursery and Toddler Care

Nursery and toddler care is provided during the 8:30 (0–PreK) and 10:00 (0-3 years) Sunday services.
 
Children’s Church 
Children age 4-2nd grade begin in the service with their parents and are dismissed for Children’s Church, where we prepare the children for worship in “big church” by mirroring what goes on in the service.
 
Education & Formation
Following the worship service on Sunday mornings, age-specific classes are offered for all children to provide further reflection and discussion of God's Word. 
 
Children's Choir
Children preschool through second grade rehearse on Sunday mornings as a part of weekly children's church and sing in the worship service 4-6 times a year.

Child Safety
We take our children’s safety very seriously. Our childcare and children's programming are staffed by a combination of staff and volunteers.  We expect volunteers to be a part of the Christ the King community for at least 6 months before we schedule them for volunteer service in our children's programs.  Additionally, all of our volunteers are required to complete a background check and attend our child safety training. Our Five Steps for Keeping Children Safe will give you a greater description of what we do to ensure our children's safety.
 
Looking to Volunteer?
If you are interested in volunteering for one of the children's programs, email Megan Landmeier (mlandmeier@ctkalexandria.org).

Children with Disabilities/Special Needs 
We welcome your child and want to make appropriate accommodations to make sure he/she is comfortable and able to fully participate in our children's programming.  Please contact Megan Landmeier (mlandmeier@ctkalexandria.org) if you feel that your child needs extra support in order to participate.
 
Vacation Bible School
Our VBS program occurs once each summer, from Tuesday to Friday.  In 2019, we will host VBS from July 23-26.
