At City of God Church, we want to come alongside parents and give every child who comes through our doors the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
FIRST TIME VISITING?
We have a small parking lot dedicated to families on the south side of the building (on Brown St.). When you enter through those doors, you will see a check-in table with a friendly volunteer who will be happy to help you through the check-in process and answer any questions you may have. If you have questions ahead of time, please contact and our Children's Ministry Director would love to talk to you and help you feel comfortable ahead of your visit!
What will my child learn at City of God?
Our classes currently use The Gospel Project for Kids as our primary teaching curriculum. You can find out more about these lessons by clicking the button below.
Who will be watching my kids?
All children's ministry volunteers receive training prior to serving. We also have a current background check on file for everyone who serves. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible concerning the safety of your children so please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. ( )
Health or allergy concerns?
We give snacks to every class, but only give Cheerios to our nursery and toddler classes and Welch's fruit snacks to all other classes. We have found that these are safe for almost all allergies. If this poses an issue for your child, please reach out to our Children's Minister ( )
What classes are available for my child?
You will find a current class listing below.
At the 9:00 service, we have a nursery for children ages 0-4 all together. Our 10:45 service has our full Children's Ministry with more narrow age ranges.
We offer a fully-staffed nursery for children ages newborn through 18 months old.
Our toddler room (ages 18-36 months) consists of playtime at the beginning and end of the service, with about 15 minutes of structured time for a story, snack (cheerios), and coloring.
We have separate classes for our 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds. These classes consist of playtime for about 20 minutes followed by a time of music, lessons, snacks, and fun activities for the kids.
We currently offer three different classes for students in elementary school. These classes include Bible teaching, activities, and scripture memorization through fun, age-appropriate instruction.
- 1st & 2nd Grade
- 3rd - 5th Grade
City of God offers a ministry for 6th - 12th grade students on Sunday nights. Make sure to check the calendar to find out more about their biweekly gatherings. (https://cogchurch.churchcenter.com/calendar?view=month)

We believe that every child is made in the image of God. If your child has special needs, please complete this form or contact our Director of Children's Ministry ( ) to discuss any accommodations or support that we can provide! We want them (and you!) to feel safe and welcome at our church as we teach them about God.
Occasionally, the City of God will invite children to worship with their parents on Sunday mornings. On these Sundays, we will still have the nursery class available.
