KidCentral Children's MinistrY

KidCentral children's ministry at Central Christian Church is committed to helping children learn to love everyone as God has commanded and to make good choices as they learn to SHINE like Jesus. KidCentral includes all ministries for children who are 5th grade and younger. We also have a strong emphasis on equipping parents as the primary source of faith development for their children.

KidCentral Ministries include ... Sunday School, Children's Church, Vacation Bible School, Children's Sabbath, Christmas Musical, Outreach/Mission Projects, and more. 

  • Nursery/Preschool Ministries

    With loving caregivers and great volunteers, our littlest ones experience God's love through our Baby Beginnigs curriculum and Preschool Spark Rotation curriculum during the Sunday School hour at 9:30am. Children in these age groups are welcome to go to worship at 10:30 am with their families, or can remain in our classrooms for the duration of worship. Each family can do what is best for their children.

  • Elementary-Aged Sunday School

    Every 4-6 weeks, our elementary school children (K-5th grade) participate in a Workshop Rotation model of Sunday School. In this exciting, multisensory format, children are taught one Bible Story/Theme per rotation and engage in activities that include a movie theater, computer lab, art & cooking experiences, science, drama, music and more! 


    While we believe that each family should make the choice about their children's participation in worship at any age, we also provide a separate experience during the sermon for children in Pre-K thru 3rd grade most Sundays. Children gather in the chapel to engage in meaningful, relevant Bible games during Children's Church approximately 2-3 Sundays/month. We don't hold Children's Church on some Sundays because we want children to have experiences with their families during "Big Church" so that they can learn how to fully worship God with a cross-generational church family.

  • Camps & Retreats

    Children of all ages have summer camp opportunities via our Disciples of Christ church camp, Disciples Crossing, in Athens, Texas. There is also a midwinter retreat for 3-5th graders in January. For a list of dates for retreats and summer camps or to register, go to
