What a blessing to welcome you to Children's Ministry at Christ Lutheran Church!

As you explore our website you will find that ministry to, for and by children is evident everywhere - not just on the Children's Ministry Page.  As a Church we believe that children are members of God's family.  They are invited to actively participate in worship, study of God's Word, sharing God's Word with others and sharing God's Love through service in their church, in their homes, in their school and in their community.

I invite you to contact me with any questions or concerns regarding our Children's Ministry.

In Christ - David Johnson, Director of Christian Education


Nursery Care

Our Nursery Ministry provides loving childcare, for children age 0 to 5 years old, in a safe and friendly environment.  On Sundays our church nursery is staffed during all the morning and evening worship services.  All nursery staff have been screened and background checked.

Parents are asked to sign children in and out of the nursery for their safety.  We also ask that parents provide any snacks or comfort items like blankies or a favorite stuffed animal.

Parents are also welcome to stay with their child in the nursery or to use the nursery as a cry room.

Sunday School

On Sunday mornings from 9:30 - 10:30, we offer Sunday School for our Preschool through 6th grade students.

Sunday school students who attend the 9:15am worship service may begin worship with their families and then transition to Sunday School after the Children's Message. A Sunday School staff member will escort the students from the Family Life Center to room 303.

During the School year we follow Bible-based, Christ-centered lessons in age groups.  Our summer routine uses a mixed age, large group format.

The Sunday School hour wraps up with snack at the picnic tables behind the church.  Parents are asked to pick up their children at the picnic tables.

Club 56

Club 56 is a special group for our 5th and 6th grade students. We meet on the second and fourth Sundays of the month from 4:30 – 5:45pm.  Each month is a little different but the activities always include some time in God's Word and lots of fun with our friends.  Please contact David Johnson, Director of Christian Education - Youth, at djohnson@christbrea.com  for more information or check out the Club 56 in the Youth Ministries section of our website.
