Shaping Hearts to Love Jesus
Age-Appropriate Spiritual Education for Our Children!
Our mission with children's ministries is to shape children's hearts to love and serve Jesus and to grow spiritually through Catechesis of the Good Shepherd at 9 am and 10:30 am on Sundays, and separately at Christ Church Academy during the week.
In order to maintain a loving, protected environment for infants through 5th grade kids, all of our childcare workers undergo background checks and are trained in child safety protocols.
For more information on the Children's Ministry at Christ Church, please email Fr. Hunter Van Wagenen, or call 772.562.8670, ext. 116.
Kids are invited to visit Promise Land!
In this very special wing of the church, we are creating an environment where kids are reminded of the promises in God's Word and His blessings for children. Parents and visitors sign in using the KidCheck system that provides opportunities to share any special physical or dietary needs in order to help us minister properly to the children. Promise Land is comprised of these key areas:
Peek-a-Boo Zoo (Nursery)
Available for infants through toddlers on Sundays starting at 9 am during Sunday School and through the worship service. It also serves as our home to the youngest members of our CCA Family (1's and 2's) on weekday mornings.
Lighthouse Point (CCA Kindergarten Readiness)
Lighthouse Point is our Kindergarten Readiness classroom.
The Treehouse (Older Kids)
On Sundays, kids ages 3-6 years meet here first for fun and interactive activities and Bible lessons during the weekly t 9 am Sunday School. This age group then moves to our Atrium adjacent to the Nave for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd experiences during the 10:30 am Sunday service. Children may be picked up after the sermon by their parents to participate in prayers and Holy Communion with their families.
On weekday mornings, the Treehouse is the CCA classroom for our 2's and 3's, and the space for early and after care.
The Rainbow and Sunshine rooms in this corner of Promise Land are outfitted specifically for the needs and interests of younger 2's and older 3's enrolled in Christ Church Academy.
CHRIST CHURCH ACADEMY
Christ Church Academy is a parochial school and an important part of our mission at Christ Church. As a fully accredited school, our mission is to train champions of truth, making disciples who follow Jesus and lead lives transformed by Him.
We are adding Second Grade to our Lower School classes beginning with the 2023-2024 academic year, joining the Kindergarten and First Grade classes and preschool. Our programs are designed to provide high quality, Christian-based early education in a safe, creative, and loving environment. We are in full compliance with Christian Schools of Florida, an accreditation agency that inspects our facility and operations to ensure we meet or surpass State of Florida standards for childcare and early education (and we surpass them!).
Students experience a robust academic morning of learning and play in a loving Christian environment that emphasizes Biblical values and social development while leading them to the heart of Jesus Christ.
Enrollment is currently open for the 2023-24 school year, but we encourage your call and interest as classes fill up very quickly each year.
