(Early Childhood & Elementary Age)
Here's the latest for all of our CH Kids!
Kids Summer Service Club
July 5, 12, 19 and 26 (Thursdays from 10 am to 3 pm)
Our Kids Summer Service Club is an opportunity for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders to learn, serve, pray and play together. Service projects include visiting nursing homes, sorting clothes for a foster care organization, doing yard work or other acts of service. We conclude our day of service with a picnic lunch and swimming at a local pool. Kids should bring a sack lunch each week, along with a towel, swimsuit, sunscreen and $4 for the cost of swimming. We’ll meet in the Fellowship Hall at 10 am and kids will be picked up by their parents at Schifferdecker Pool at 3 pm. We also need parents to serve on a rotation of sponsors/van drivers. Please let us know if you can serve in this meaningful way! Register your children to attend at www.chjoplin.org/register.

Our Early Childhood Ministry at College Heights includes Baby City (0-1), Toddler Town (2-3), and Kid Cadets (Preschool 4's-Kindergarten). We find it a great joy to help young children grow in their knowledge of and love for Jesus! We're honored to serve families and help you connect to one another through service projects, fun activities, and meaningful moments of growth. We also offer biblically sound lessons, age-appropriate activities, and a safe, engaging environment for children on Sundays at 9:15 AM and 11:00 AM. Wednesday programming is offered at 7 PM during the school year.
We want kids to LOVE coming to church, CONNECT with friends and leaders, SEE God's big story and how they fit in, and FIND practical ways to live out what they have learned for Jesus.
In LaunchPad grades 1–5 develop a solid Christian foundation. We play fun games, worship through singing together, and learn about our AWESOME God by studying the Bible in both large and small group settings. Each week, we want kids to walk away with practical ways to live out what they have studied.
On the fourth Sunday of every month we have Family Sunday. During the 9:15 AM service, children in grades 1–5 attend LaunchPad as usual. After the service, parents pick up their children in grades 1–5 to be together at 11:00 AM in the Worship Center.
WEDNESDAY (during the school year; 7:00-8:15 PM)
Grades 1-5 in the Gym
On Wednesday nights, we play super fun games and learn how to tell and retell the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the Discover Bible Study method (DBS). In DBS, children hear scripture read directly to them (using creative methods) and the kids then practice retelling the story in their small group. Our kids are learning a lot about sharing Jesus with others and are learning skills that will help them reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Our Children's Team is here to serve both families and volunteers! If you have questions about our ministry or are looking for opportunities to serve, please contact any of our staff members.
