Kids Ministry (2 years-6th grade)

As a part of the larger Community Bible Church family, Children’s Church and Sunday School at CBC,  seeks to offer a safe and nurturing environment where children can experience the love of Christ and grow in their knowledge of Him. We do this by carefully evaluating those who work with our children, using background and reference checks on any individual who wishes to work in our children’s ministry.  We desire to maintain a highly relational ministry, where qualified loving workers develop personal relationships with children.

Children's Church

Our Children’s Church is designed for ages 3- 1st Grade and available during our second service, which starts at 11:00am.
Children who are still in diapers will be  placed in the nursery as the Children’s Church room does not accommodate diaper changing.


Taken from 2 Timothy 2:15, the name Awana is an acrostic: Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. 
The Awana ministry equips leaders to reach kids with the gospel and encourage them in their walk with Christ. Our Awana program impacts childrens’ lives through energetic game activities, Bible-based teaching experiences, Scripture memorization, and small group time. Awana also provides an opportunity for parents to be involved in the spiritual development of their children.
