Children’s Ministry
Our dedicated Children's Ministry staff and volunteers teach GOD'S WORD through Bible stories, songs, crafts, activities & prayer. Each month the children in Sunday School and Junior Church will focus on a particular theme where they will be engaged in the teachings surrounding that theme. It is our goal, by teaching different aspects of one monthly theme each week, the children will gain a strong understanding of God's love through pivotal Bible lessons. We welcome your children to any of these opportunities.

Nursery care for babies and toddlers is provided for all church services. Child care can be provided for special events, if arranged in advance.

For more information about the Children's Ministry, please contact Sara Robinson, Children's Ministry Director at childrensministry@collegeparkpres.org.

Sunday School & Junior Church*
These lessons target children ages 5 years old – 5th grade and occur in the elementary classroom. Each month, the children's lessons focus on one monthly Bible theme that is taught in their Sunday School and Junior Church areas. These lessons are creatively taught in different manners, including the Bible stories, crafts, games, music/songs, and other age-appropriate activities to engage the children and build upon their knowledge of the Bible. These lessons are based on "The Gospel Project" by LifeWay Kids & "The Worship, The Word, The Way" by ResourceWell.

Jesus the Storyteller
Why did Jesus tell parables?
Jesus told parables to teach people about God and His kingdom.

Bible Verse: "When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things." Mark 6:34
