c3 kids (2-10)

C3 Kids is a place where children of all ages can find God. From the youngest to the oldest, your child will learn about the love of Christ in a fun environment. Children are encouraged every week through inspirational bible stories. Why not bring your children to us while you enjoy the main service. It is a great way for your family to grow together in God!


+ What is C3 kids?

C3 Kids is the Children's ministry of C3 Church. Through age specific messages, activities, games and small groups your children will learn about who God is and how to live as a disciple of Jesus

+ C3 Kids Values

C3 Kids is committed to creating an environment that is fun for learning about God and making friends. We believe fun is the universal language of all kids of all ages.

We're not just here for your kids but we are here for you as parents, meaning we want you to have complete peace of mind when you drop your children off at C3 Kids Christ-centered: C3 Kids is not a child minding service. We firmly believe children as young as 2 can experience and learn about Jesus and we are committed to creating an environment that best helps them do so

+ What to expect

On your first visit to C3 Kids there will be a form for you as a parent/guardian to fill out. Because we value safety this is where we will get some key information such as contact numbers, special needs, and allergies

+ How Safety works

C3 Kids is not only committed to your children but also to you as a parent having peace of mind that your children is in a fun, safe and Christ-centered environment. One of the ways we ensure safety is by having a sign in system where children must be signed in and picked up by their parent or legal guardian. In the event that there is an emergency we will contact you via txt message if required. All of our kids team have been police vetted and gone through a screening process to ensure that they are fit to be involved in C3 Kids
