We care about your kids, their faith, and their families!
Welcome to the Children's Ministry at Community Church, Short Hills! We are passionate about showing God's love to each child who walks through our doors.
Our Sunday morning programming (Sunday School and Childcare) provides a nurturing environment where children's faith can flourish!
Kids can’t hear often enough how much they are loved!
In our Sunday morning children's ministry program, Simply Loved, kids discover just how much God loves them. With foundational Bible stories, exciting song videos, and a Bible Buddy to help kids connect with the theme for each week, Simply Loved helps kids experience God’s greatest gift!
About our Children's Ministry
Even kids who don’t like traditional Sunday School
love our camp-like atmosphere with hands-on crafts, games, music, and videos!
With a new Bible story as the foundation for each Sunday’s activities, kids explore the stories, people, and message that ground our faith in Jesus and that lead them to discover how God can be an exciting part of their lives.
Activities and lessons are crafted with the everyday experiences of children in mind. Each Sunday, kids walk away having discovered a new and exciting way that God relates to their lives!
In our camp-like atmosphere, hands-on crafts, games, and music bring Bible stories alive!
A state-of-the-art sound and projection system create an environment that keeps kids' attention while presenting materials in a way that is engaging.
Our experienced and professional teachers are invested in the faith development of your child and nurture their curiosity and discovery of God.
Each Sunday, kids begin with songs and games, then read a Bible story from the Children's StoryBible, watch a video of the story, do a hands-on activity, and close with more music and a prayer.
During the school year (September through May), children are dropped off in the Chapel before the start of 10:30am Worship. Our professional staff of teachers record any special needs or allergy information,
as well as contact info in case you need to be reached during your child's time with us.
At the conclusion of worship, children are released into the custody of the adult who dropped them off.
In the summertime (Memorial Day through Labor Day), a more relaxed summer-friendly option is offered for
children of all ages in the childcare center.
