Sunday Morning Children’s Ministry: Infants-6th grade | 8:45 & 10:45 am
Children receive age-appropriate Bible teaching about God’s unstoppable love in a fun, loving atmosphere. Each Sunday includes time for free play, worship, a large group teaching, small group time, and an activity. We want Children’s Ministry to be the best hour of your child’s week! For more information or to register your child, stop by the Children’s Ministry Courtesy Desk on Sunday mornings, or contact Theresa: 920.730.8383 ext. 322.
CTR Kids Christmas Sunday information and important dates coming up!
The kids have been learning and practicing their song for CTR Kids Christmas Sunday on December 10th!
Ages 4 years old through 4th grade will be singing/leading a time of worship during both services. Please come to whatever service you normally attend.
On Thursday December 7th we will practice! Please have your kiddos checked in (just like Sunday mornings) before 6:30pm. Practice is only about an hour long- 4 year olds and kindergarten might be done a little sooner. This time is to help kids feel more comfortable being on stage, practice our transitions, and do a run through with the worship team!
We ask that one parent stay in the church during practice. We want to invite all parents to our ‘Parent Social’ during that time! Fireside Cafe will be open for a cozy drink- we will provide a sweet treat. Enjoy the fireplace and the company while the kids practice!

Current lesson series in Children’s Ministry:
Elementary Theme: Light It Up
There are so many things to love about Christmas- music, presents, decorations, bad sweaters, and crazy uncle Sal dressed as Santa! And to top it all, the twinkling lights. Christmas is sometimes referred to as the season of light. Not just because of the colorful lights you see hanging on houses and trees, but because we celebrate the birth of Jesus- the light of the World. During “Light It Up,” kids will get clues about the consents of a present. At the flip of the switch, the present will light up, magically revealing the contents and shedding light on the amazing story of Jesus’ birth.
Preschool Theme: Tippy’s Merry Mouse House
It’s Christmas time at Tippy’s Mouse House! Just as mice are prone to do, Tippy has tiptoed into the preschool room and scurried of with the Christmas story pictures. Together, the preschoolers get to peek into Tippy’s festive Mouse House and search for the pictures amongst all the other doodads that Tippy has collected. It’s a yuletide search that culminates in the discovery of God’s greatest gift- baby Jesus.

Sunday Morning Hallway Huddles | 8:15 & 10:15 am: As we dive into summer we still plan on meeting before each service on Sunday Mornings. Our vision behind this is to create a space where we’re able to gather together, briefly talk about the morning while giving you a place to ask any final questions about activities, schedule, etc., and then PRAY and commit ourselves to God and ask for HIM to provide us with what we need to serve the kids well. When you are scheduled to serve, we ask that you make sure you arrive 30 minutes prior to the service: 8:15 am or 10:15 am.
Beautiful and powerful things happen when God’s people gather to pray, and we grow and connect together as a CTR Kids team when we make these huddle times a priority.
