Children's ministries at Christ Church include childcare for our youngest members and Sunday School and Children's Chapel for children ages 5 and older.
Children are always welcome to attend worship services at Christ Church. All are welcome to receive communion at Christ Church, including the youngest members of our community.
Childcare for those four and under begins at 9:00 and continues until approximately 11:15, when these little ones join their families for Eucharist.
Our church school for those 5 and older begins at 9:15. For this hour, we use the Godly Play stories. This hands-on approach allows the children to participate in telling a story, discuss it, create art, and learn to live in Christian community. Over a three-year cycle, we explore together many of the stories of the people of God.
Children 5 and older join their parents for the first part of the 10:30 service. We gather in the Lady Chapel for the middle portion of the service. We are excited this year to be "Building Our Faith: Brick By Brick" and using Legos to learn more about the Bible! We have some sharing time and pray and then join our families for the Peace. We also help to offer the gifts by processing in with the cross at the Offertory.
Christ Church youth participate in Chattanooga Episcopal Youth (ChattEY), a regional gathering of middle and high-schoolers from Episcopal Churches in and around Chattanooga. ChattEY meets once a month throughout the school year, typically on Second Sundays, for food games, music and service projects.
Other special events for children and families are offered throughout the year, especially during special days and seasons in the life of the church.
