Cornerstone Kids

The purpose of our children’s ministry is to begin the discipleship journey with kids and their parents. To help foster a love of Jesus in their hearts and for others around the world.

Discipleship Opportunities for Kids

Weekly Kids Ministry Activities

Nursery

Birth - 2

8:15, 9:45- 10:30, and 10:45 am – Eldridge

8:45-9:45  and 10:00 am – DeWitt 

We provide a safe, secure, and loving environment for babies and toddlers during each of our worship services and Sunday School hour. This allows moms and dads the opportunity to worship and grow without worries or distractions.

Children's Church

Age 2/3 - 2nd grade

8:15 and 10:45 am – Eldridge

10:00 am – DeWitt 

Children’s Church is offered during our worship services at both of our campus locations. We teach Biblical truth at an age-appropriate level to help children learn the gospel story and live accordingly. Children are dismissed after the praise and singing part of our morning service.

Sunday School

All Ages

9:45 – 10:30 –  Eldridge 

 8:45-9:45  –  DeWitt

Our desire is for children to understand their need for God’s grace through Jesus Christ and experience true conversion so they will know, honor, and treasure God above all. We instruct Biblical truths through the teaching of the Bible, engage the heart by guiding children to a personal response to God’s truth, and encourage children to walk in obedience to the Holy Spirit.
