Children @ CRC

Our Vision

CRC’s Children’s Ministry exists to see God honored as children and families are formed and renewed by the gospel through multigenerational life-on-life discipleship that transforms the Upper Valley community and, through the Upper Valley, the next generation of the world.

Our Mission

To nurture families and children in the “discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Eph 6:4) by teaching them the gospel from the Word of God through Children’s Church, Sunday School, and other programs and opportunities in and through the church.

Children's Church

CRC is committed to providing a Children’s Church program for age-appropriate ministering of the gospel. We offer Nursery, Preschool Church, and Junior Church during our Sunday worship service.

Classes are available for infants through 2nd Graders.
Please check your children in with the Childcare Supervisor when you arrive for the service.

Nursery (infants & toddlers) is available for the whole service.

Preschool Church (3-5 year old) and Junior Church (Kindergarteners & 2nd Graders) begins during the brief break prior to the sermon. In these classes, children are hearing the stories of God’s Word from The Jesus Storybook Bible and The Gospel Story Bible and doing activities that help reinforce the lesson.

Your children are also welcome to remain in the worship service if you wish.

Sunday School

Sunday School classes are available for most of the school year for children, youth and adults. For more information about Sunday School classes, visit the Sunday School page.

Childcare Policies

The goal of CRC's Childcare Policies is to maintain a safe environment for children and those responsible for them. These policies aim to keep our church community above reproach, normalize safe behavior, and protect the vulnerable. Our childcare brochure summarizes our policies and is available either at the childcare check-in table at our worship service or by clicking the link below.


For any children's ministry related questions, please contact the church office.
