Jesus made it pretty clear that kids are an irreplaceable part of church life. We agree.
Kids of all ages are welcomed and celebrated at CLA. Because we value doing church as a family, we welcome our CLA kids to be a part of the Sunday worship service. Whether you choose to stay in the service or join one of our age-appropriate classes, you are welcome here!
Infants & Toddlers
Our nursery is a safe place for babies and toddlers to play while you enjoy the service. Parents are welcome to join their children, but our trained volunteers are happy to care for your child (we'll let you know right away through our text system if you're needed back in the nursery). Moms are welcome to use our comfortable nursing/feeding room, adjacent to the nursery right off the main lobby.
Preschoolers & Grade Schoolers
Kids who are age 3/4 or in Kindergarten to Grade 6 will enjoy our kids program downstairs. Split up into age appropriate groupings, our kids ministry workers will provide a fun (and safe) environment for your kids to worship and learn lessons about Jesus, geared specifically towards them!
kids check in
Please check in your kids (nursery and grade school) at the beginning of the service, at the kids check in kiosk in the main lobby. We'll give both you and your child a matching tag that will help us serve you better by:
serving as a name tag for your child
placing your phone number on your child's tag, so that we can easily and quickly contact you if you are needed
noting any specific allergies or medical concerns that our volunteers need to be aware of
ensuring that only you/your spouse/a trusted adult can pick up your child
We have a plan
A Plan to Protect that is! Our screened and trained volunteers and staff work hard to make sure that your kids are kept safe while in our care. We have a comprehensive Protection Procedure Manual in place so that you can enjoy the service knowing that your kids are taken care of in a safe and fun environment!
