Kid Cadets

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.

Coming Soon


Our next Serve, Sort and Snag Clothing Event is Saturday, August 5, in the Atrium from 10 AM to Noon. Come sort clothes for Crosslines Ministries and take home some FREE, Rhea Lana-quality clothes for your children! FREE CLOTHES FOR YOUR KIDS! Families who have participated in past Clothing Events have been very thankful for this opportunity to serve and be served, and the clothes are great quality! There are sizes for older kids, too, so feel free to invite your friends with elementary-aged kids. This is an easy way to invite someone to our church and a wonderful opportunity for them to experience the love and generosity of God's people. Questions?
