Children’s Worship – Online

Our mission is to introduce Jesus Christ to boys and girls. We seek to create a fun, safe and loving environment where children are equipped to become life-long disciples of Jesus. We have a variety of ministries designed to teach boys and girls to love the Lord and apply the truth of God’s Word to their lives.

BLAST OFF (ages 4-5) 

Room 102

During Blast Off, our preschoolers and kindergartners begin to experience more structure in their class time. We Make It FUN with some opening games and activities, Make It TRUE with worship, Make it STICK in a big-group setting through interactive Bible teaching and Make It REAL during small group activities. For more information about Blast Off, please contact Sarah Klase at sarahklase@cedarcrest.church.

SKYROCKET (1st-5th grade) 

Activity Center

In Skyrocket, we focus on teaching three Biblical truths: I can trust God no matter what, I need to make the right choice and I should treat others the way I want to be treated. The Skyrocket ministry is based on a ‘large group, small group’ philosophy: the students begin their time with “Plug In” – a short ‘play with purpose’ time, then they come together in large group (LG) for “Power Up” -worship and interactive Bible lesson, and end their time with “Catch On” – small group activities designed to make the Bible lesson real. For more Skyrocket information, contact Melissa Adams at madams@cedarcrest.church.

Nursery care is provided during all Sunday Morning services for infants through age 3. A Mother’s Room is located adjacent to the nurseries for the convenience of new mothers and their babies.

Sunday School – Sundays, 10:00-11:00 a.m. (Sept. – June)
