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.

Parent Pages


We invite you to view our Parent Page each week for highlights of what your child learned on Sunday, ideas for how to reinforce the lessons at home, and announcements about upcoming events and family connection opportunities.

Here's the Latest!


We are SO excited to invite all of our Early Childhood and Elementary families to our Christmas party!  Bring your family’s favorite Christmas treat (dessert or appetizer) and enjoy a special evening of memory making activities as a family.  We’ll be making Jesse Trees, which is an advent craft that starts at Creation and ends with the wise men visiting baby Jesus.  This is a fantastic opportunity to create a meaningful family treasure while teaching your children to be disciples of Jesus.  Please RSVP no later than Friday, December 1, so we’ll have time to gather needed supplies.  Sign up here:




Our Early Childhood Ministry staff 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.
