Children in the Church

Then He took a little child and set him in the midst of them. And when He had taken him in His arms, He said to them, "Whoever receives one of these little children in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives not Me but Him who sent Me" (Mark 9:36-37).

At Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, we realize the future will one day be in our children's hands. We want to do all we can to encourage and equip the children in our church to walk with God, both now and throughout their adulthood.

As a church that loves children, we place a high priority on providing a loving, relaxing and clean environment for your children. The goal of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills Children's Ministry is to attract children and help their families in laying a foundation of biblical truth and encourage them to surrender their lives to God. We pray that your child's experience with us is "the best hour" of their week.

Our well-rounded curriculum and activities are geared to minister to children's needs, to help them grow into a functional member of the body of Christ. In addition to Children's Ministry, we offer camps, vacation bible school and a variety of other activities and learning opportunities for children of all ages.

NURSING MOTHER’S ROOM

We provide a soundproof, private room for nursing mothers who would like to hear and observe services in the Main Sanctuary. Located at the southwest corner of the sanctuary, you may enter the Nursing Mother’s Room from the outer hallway. Our Bride’s Room is reserved for nursing mothers and their infants only. Husbands and siblings are not permitted in the Nursing Mother’s Room and are encouraged to find the age-appropriate class in our Children’s Ministries.

NURSERY CARE

We provide nursery care for children, birth to two years old, with a ratio of one worker caring for every four children.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

We offer Children’s Ministry classes that include age-appropriate curriculum for children 3 years of age through 6th grade at all Sunday morning services and on Wednesday evenings.

SPECIAL NEEDS’ MINISTRY

We provide Special Needs’ classes Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings for ages 2 through 18 years of age. In addition, we offer an Adults with Disabilities class for adults with special needs on Sundays at 9:30AM and Wednesdays at 7PM.

Our Jr High and High School Ministries meet at 9:30 and 12:00 PM on Sundays and Wednesday nights at 7PM.

GUIDELINES FOR THE MAIN SANCTUARY

Our Children’s Ministry and Nursery care programs are designed to minister to the children at their age level. We encourage all parents to take advantage of these ministries that we created and specially prepared for your child. We wouldn’t want to rob your child of the opportunity of hearing and seeing God’s Word in action in their very own age-appropriate setting. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you place your children into their appropriate classes so they will benefit from the Children’s Ministry program and not be a distraction or hindrance to God’s Word being taught in the main sanctuary. Our desire is to provide a quiet and distraction-free environment to enable everyone present to worship the Lord, hear God’s message clearly, and to respond if an invitation is given.

If your child(ren) must accompany you into service, we ask that you observe the following guidelines:

If your child(ren) are 4th grade and younger, we ask that you please sit in the Family Section of the sanctuary. An usher will be happy to direct you.

If your child(ren) are 5th through Jr High, we ask that you please have your children sit with you during the worship service and teaching.
