Children

"Train up a child in the way he should go;
Even when he is old he will not depart from it." - Proverbs 22:6


"Let the Children Come to Me . . . "

Several times during His earthly ministry, Jesus demonstrated a tender concern and care for the youngest and smallest of the crowds that followed Him: the children.  It is our desire at CBC to reflect that love in our Children's Ministries.  Each of these ministries is designed to point these precious young ones to salvation in Jesus Christ in age-appropriate ways in a loving and safe environment.

Child Protection

Contact: Marv Ortman, 755-1893
Recognizing God’s tender love and concern for children (Luke 18:16) we believe it is our responsibility to do all that is reasonably possible to protect the children and youth of this church from any type of abuse while under our care.

All Children and Youth workers are required to complete an application (including personal references), personal interview, background check, and Abuse Prevention Training course.
Final approval is granted through the “Children and Youth Workers Review Committee”.
A contact person is provided for each area of service. Each Ministry Leader has established specific guidelines for their area of service.

Behavioral Guidelines

We show God’s love to those around us by how we treat one another and the ministry facility.

  1. Respect—treat others the way you want to be treated.
  2. Kindness—take turns, share and be kind to one another.
  3. Honesty—tell the truth.
  4. Safety--act in a way that is not harmful to others.
