Children's Ministry

We are excited to help children and their parents grow in knowing God’s love and grace. Our philosophy is to develop relationships between children, the City Life community, and the story of God’s grace. Our lessons emphasize children’s creative participation in the stories of the Bible. Utilizing art, story telling, physical activity, singing, and, of course, fun, we help our kids understand God’s love while experiencing loving community.

Throughout the last two years, we have taken extra precautions to keep our kiddos safe during the covid pandemic. Our goal is to gather in a classroom-style setting again. But for now, our worship service is a multi-generational gathering with a self-service space in the back of the sanctuary for little ones to enjoy a few activity options on rugs. And, weather permitting, an outdoor circle time! There will also be covered self-service areas directly outside the main entrance — a courtyard area with plenty of space for kids who need a little more wiggle room.

A few notes for parents: Our Child Safety Policy requires each child be checked in (when the time comes for us to gather in the classroom again) so that we can contact parents if they are needed during the service. At any point in the service you can come the classroom to be available for your child’s needs and are welcome to stay as long as you like. 

Middle & High School Youth Group

Middle School Youth Group: 6th-8th graders at City Life meet bi-monthly to learn from the Bible and grow together as friends. For more information contact Josiah at [email protected].

High School Youth Group: 9th-12th graders at City Life gather as planned. Every teen is encouraged to come as they are and to ask deep questions about life, faith, and the world around them. We spend our evenings eating together and looking at what the Bible has to say about the most prominent issues in our lives. For more information contact Josiah at [email protected].
