Here at Christ Church it is our hope to instill the Christ like motto Know, Love, Serve to every child that enters our doors.
Through relevant age-specific teaching, Christ Kids become equipped to Know God and learn how to apply bible truths to their own lives.
By teaching them to Love God they develop a personal relationship with Him and in turn learn how to love their neighbors.
And while emphasizing the importance to Serve God and others, it is our hope that our kids become the hands and feet of Jesus in their daily lives.
We focus on helping families along their life journey and making sure they are loved and accepted every step of the way. We follow a Safe Sanctuary module so you know your child will be safe under our care. Come make Christ Church a part of your life!

Early Learning Center
Open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 9:30 am to 2:30 pm
For children 3 months – 3yrs old
Christ Church Early Learning Center provides age-appropriate play experiences in a Christian environment encouraging children to develop their individual and unique potential socially, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and physically.
Our “Three and Me” program focuses on children 3 months to three years old and provides a positive, flexible, creative, and meaningful environment that is loving, warm, and secure. Our goal is that each child learns that he or she is a child of God and a person to be valued for their own uniqueness. The program structure adds playmates and a variety of activities in a Christ-centered environment, mirroring the Christian love and learning at home.
Children are encouraged to move about and explore concepts relating to colors, numbers, letters, shapes, vocabulary, and God’s world. There is a Bible story each day along with music and movement.
Each classroom has centers for dress up, housekeeping, science, creative art, manipulatives, books, and group activities.
ELC teachers are experienced in teaching with a sensitivity to the individual needs of the young child. Our Early Learning Center is a ministry of the church-ministering to both the child and the parents.
