College Hills Children's Ministry

Here at College Hills we believe that our kids are not just the church of the future but that they are the church right now. We believe that God created them each uniquely and with special gifts and talents that they can use for furthering His Kingdom no matter their age. We strive to help them discover and use these talents as they grow in both physically and in relationship with Christ. It is our goal that every child who comes through the CH Kids ministry will know, feel, and see the love that our God has for each of them. 


KIDCHECK is our secure check-in system for babies through kindergarten age. Parents may sign up from home by going to the website and following the instructions.

Children's Ministry staff are also available to help you sign up on Sundays and Wednesdays at THE ARK and printed instruction sheets are available for all parents.

Children's Church

Children's Church is available the 2nd and 4th Sunday morning of the month during the 8:45 worship service for children 3 years old through 1st grade. Check-in at The Ark (info desk in the Children's Ministry wing) to be directed to the correct class.

Also during our 8:45 Sunday morning worship service, babies from birth until the September after their second birthday are cared for in our nursery wing. Pagers are available so that parents can be contacted when they are needed. A mother's nursing room provides privacy adjacent to a quiet sleeping room. For children older than Pre-K, Quiet Bags are available in the Worship Center for children to use while sitting with their parents during worship. 


Our Nursery is located on the "Blue Wing" in the Children's Ministry area.



Classes for babies are also available at 10:00 on Sunday morning and at 6:30 on Wednesday evening. Parents are invited to observe a class to see the learning activities that place. 

  • Our Honeybees class is for babies until they are walking. 
  • Young walkers are in the Caterpillars class.
  • Older toddlers are in the Butterflies class. 

Classrooms for children ages 2 and 3 are on the Red Wing of the College Hills Children's Ministry area.


  • Two-year-olds are called "Bears" in our Children's Ministry and include children who were 2 by September 30 of the previous year and will be turning 3 during the current year.
  • Three-year-olds are called "Bunnies". These are children who were 3 by September 30 of the previous year and will be turning 4 during the current year.
  • Pre-kindergarten "Dinosaurs" (children who will be in Kindergarten next school year) meet in the Green Wing of the Children's Ministry area in rooms 420 and 422 on Sunday morning and in room 422 on Sunday and Wednesday evening.


These children are promoted to the next age level class at the beginning of September each year. Bears will go to the Bunnies class and Bunnies will go to the Dinosaurs class.
