Connecting Kids With The Love Of God


CityKids Is For Children Up To Sixth Grade

We have a children’s ministry available at our in-person services at 10:00am and 11:30am Sunday services in Astoria, Queens. For the safety of our children and volunteers, we have limited capacity and require advance registration. To register please email and one of our staff members will assist you!

One of our 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

For the safety of all our children we do not currently have CityBabes during our in-person services. Your children are more than welcome to join you in service. Thank you for understanding.

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!
