Our Mission

To connect children with Christ and partner with parents to enthusiastically guide children toward a HEART for God.

The cpckids team is focused on loving and serving children up through 6th grade and partnering with their families as they grow in their walk with the Lord.

Mission Application

Developing heartfelt relationships, engaging teaching, authentic worship, genuine service, sharing the Good News.

Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, and with all of your soul, and with all of your strength. The commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children.

Deuteronomy 6:5-7a

We’re Learning to Think Orange

What does that mean? Very simply – we want to partner with parents to cultivate a child’s heart for God. With yellow representing the light of truth that the Church can share and red symbolic of the warm love a child experiences in their family – together they’re a powerful combination of orange. As a church, we’re seeking to come alongside YOU in partnership and do everything we can to help families grow in their faith together. For more info check out thinkorange.com.
