Connecting Kids With The Love Of God
CityKids Is For Children Up To Sixth Grade
We have a children’s ministry available at our 10:00am and 11:30am Sunday services in Astoria, Queens, at our 11:30am and 1:00pm Sunday services in East Village, Manhattan, and also at our 5:00pm Sunday evening service in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
One of our CityKids greeters will be happy to assist you if you need any help locating the kids ministry area.
We are exhorted to lead our children into a relationship with God (Deut. 6:4 & 7, Prov 22:6). We consider it an honor and serious responsibility to support your family by teaching your children God’s word, and laying a solid foundation for a relationship with Jesus Christ during their formative years.
Each child who comes into our care will receive an age-specific Bible lesson. They will also have an opportunity for lots of fun and fellowship! Teachers use Bible stories, basic principles of Christianity, and practical application to teach children how to carry a relationship with Jesus out of the church building and into the world they live in.
CityKids runs throughout the duration of the church service. Please drop your child off before service begins. Thank you.
Training Up A Future Generation
CityBabes Is For Children Up To 3 Years Of Age
CityBabes is offered during our 10:00am service in Astoria, Queens as well as our 5:00pm service in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Our East Village, Manhattan location has a children’s play area in the back of the sanctuary where mothers can keep their babies and toddlers entertained during the 11:30am and 1:00pm services.
Ministry to our babies and toddlers is of the utmost importance to us. We believe in training up a child in the way that he or she should go, so that they never depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). We believe a child is never too young to be exposed to the living word of God and so we place a high priority on exposing our children to easy-to-remember scripture through song and movement.
CityBabes provides a loving and safe environment for your child. Should your child become distressed, our teacher will first attempt to comfort and entertain your little one. However, the parent will be contacted via text message promptly should your child not be consoled after a short while.
Please make sure to inform the teacher of anything your child might need during class. Please leave us a diaper and sippy cup/bottle for your baby. We ask that all potty trained toddlers be taken to the restroom right before entering the classroom. We have a potty in the room in case of emergencies.
Note: Our CityBabes room is also used as a Mother’s Room. All mothers are welcome!
